The Ordinary recently made changes to the existing formulas under the “Retinoids” category of The Ordinary in standing with their commitment to innovation and further improving our formulations. These changes are intended to ensure and maintain the consistent stability of our products in all the regions we sell in, especially regions of the tropical climate. In addition to those changes, the aforementioned formulas, may appear darker in colour and impart a detectable Rosemary-like scent. This is expected and should not be taken as an indication of product instability.
