The Ordinary "B" Oil (Blend Oil)
>> Back to The Ordinary <<
Daily Support Formula for All Skin Types
“B” Oil solubilizes a purified form of micro-algae in a blend of squalane and oils of marula, argan, baobab, pataua, brazil nut, inca inchi, rosehip and borage to support healthy skin defense, to enhance radiance, to quench free radicals and to help balance pro-irritant mediators.
The formula imparts a golden green hue and a mild herbal odour as a result of its high micro-algae concentration.
Notes: Supplied in UV-protective packaging.
