The Ordinary Soothing & Barrier Support Serum - 30ml


A multi-active solution designed to help repair skin barrier, soothe discomfort, and reduce the look of redness.

Soothing & Barrier Support Serum is a multi-active solution targeted at reducing the look of irritated skin. It helps recover the skin barrier in 2 hours*, and provides an immediate 86%** boost in skin hydration. This helps soothe feelings of discomfort, and reduce signs of redness.

While strengthening the skin barrier, the Soothing & Barrier Support Serum also improves the look of uneven texture for a smoother appearance. Formulated with multiple vitamins, lipids, and phytotechnologies, this comprehensive serum is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

The multi-active formula contains 8 key technologies:

  • Gallic Acid Derivatives: A combination of 3 activated forms of gallic acid (propyl gallate, gallyl glucoside and epigallocatechin gallyl glucoside (EGCG)) helps soothe skin discomfort and target the look of redness associated with irritants.
  • Bisabolol: Helps reduce the look of skin redness
  • Soothing Complex: Reduces feelings of skin tightness and discomfort from dryness.
