Vitamin C is one of the most well-researched and beneficial vitamins you can apply topically. Ongoing use has been shown to improve the look of multiple signs of aging, brighten an uneven skin tone, as well as provide skin-restoring and soothing benefits.
A few of the Vitamin C ingredients we use
A stable, oil-soluble form of Vitamin C that has the ability to increase collagen levels, reduce melanin production, brighten skin, and repair the effects of UV exposure and other environmental damage.
It is also considered to be more potent than L-ascorbic acid and other Vitamin C compounds, and has a higher rate of penetration (because it is lipid soluble, like human skin) than other derivatives; it also has a higher rate of conversion to vitamin C within the dermis.
A non-irritating, stable form of vitamin C that converts to ascorbic acid via an enzymatic reaction that occurs when it contacts the skin, creating an effective delivery of ascorbic acid to the tissues.
Ascorbic acid - also known as L-ascorbic acid - is the most researched of any form of vitamin C when it comes to skin.
Concentrations between 5-20% can improve numerous the appearance of signs of aging, including discolorations, wrinkles, and loss of firmness due to sun damage. Lower concentrations such as those between 0.3-2% also offer benefits, such as improvement of uneven skin tone, fine lines, and boosting skin’s antioxidant supply.
Ascorbic acid is even more effective when mixed with other antioxidants. Vitamins C + E work together to keep each other stabilized and make their benefits last longer.
