How moisturizing is it?

Quite moisturizing: The Ordinary EUK 134 0.1% has a moisturizing rating of 5.0 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? It is purely humectant. It has zero occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusive ingredients on the ingredient list) and a maximum humectancy of 10 out of 10, entirely due to the high content of Propanediol (est. ≈50.1%).Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the moisturizing rating calculation.

Antioxidant benefits

We estimate that The Ordinary EUK 134 0.1% is rich (> 3%) in antioxidants, specifically Ethylbisiminomethylguaiacol Manganese Chloride (est. ≈49.9%).

A key benefit of antioxidants is their ability to reduce oxidative stress caused by free radicals and therefore prevent accelerated skin aging. Studies also show that antioxidants can protect against environmental damage such as UV radiation and pollution, and help reduce inflammation and skin redness.
