Our Vitamin C Serum is a powerhouse of antioxidants and vitamins. With regular use, your clients can expect to see improved skin tone, a decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as helping to prevent their future formation.
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin for maintaining healthy skin. Unfortunately, ingested Vitamin C cannot deliver an adequate amount of L-Ascorbic Acid to the skin. To prevent photodamage to collagen and elastic and to stimulate collagen synthesis, L-Ascorbic Acid must penetrate the epidermis.
Using pure L-Ascorbic Acid is the best way to get the needed amounts of Vitamin C into your skin to help stimulate collagen production. But on its own it isn’t stable; light and water break it down.
We have built a 3 prong defense to help stabilize the L-Ascorbic Acid, and bring you a powerful Vitamin C Serum.
Packaging: Packaging needs to reduce the light and air exposure as much as possible. Amber glass reduces the amount of incoming light significantly over clear glass or other colored glass. It also holds up better than any plastic materials available.
By limiting the size to a 1 oz bottle, we are reducing the effective lifespan of the product while it is in the consumers hands. Once the product is opened, it should be used within 60 days.
pH / Stability / Percentage of Serum: pH range adds penetrability plus stability to the formula. If the pH is too high, the serum will oxidize MUCH faster. We have kept our serum within the ideal pH range, which is 2.6-2.9.
Ferulic Acid: Ferulic Acid is a special little ingredient in this formula. It not only helps to stabilize the Vitamin C, helping it to resist oxidation, but it also is its own antioxidant. And when combined with Vitamin C and Vitamin E, it boosts all three up into super-anti-oxidant ranges.
About our Key Ingredients:
Vitamin C is the star of this formula. We used the purest form possible, L-Ascorbic Acid, to get you the most powerful results. Vitamin C helps to battle the damage caused by aging and free radicals. It is a crucial component of collagen synthesis. Collagen is what makes the skin texture appear smooth and youthful.
Vitamin E is one of the best antioxidants available for your skin. With its lipid loving tendencies, it is easily absorbed into the deeper layers of your skin, helping to scavenge free radicals and fight off the signs of aging.
Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced in your skin. It helps to plump up the cellular structure of your skin. But as you age, your natural production of Hyaluronic Acid diminishes. In this serum, it helps restore and retain moisture in your skin, plumping it from within to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is frequently used in many cosmeceuticals for its skin lightening effects and its potential to prevent additional pigmentation from developing and coming to the surface. Some studies have shown that using a combination of Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Niacinamide and Vitamin E produced improvements in skin tone and texture as well as fading darker areas on the skin.
dl-Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5) plays a crucial role in the healthy growth of the inner structure of skin cells known as keratinocytes. These are essential for maintaining a healthy barrier function in the skin, thus reducing the amount of moisture lost from the surface of the skin. Its natural humectant properties bring wonderful moisturizing properties to the Vitamin C Serum, which can improve skin texture and elasticity. Its ability to deeply penetrate the skin allows it to deeply moisturize the skin, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and mouth. When used as a part of your daily skin care routine, it can make a significant difference in the overall appearance of your skin.
Duke University researchers found Ferulic Acid to work so synergistically with Vitamins C and E that they proclaimed it a “potent ubiquitous plant antioxidant.” It actually makes Vitamin C and E stronger and more effective. The Duke study also found it to be particularly effective against preventing sun damage.
The Journal of Investigative Dermatology has also found it to have a stabilizing effect on other Vitamins within the formula. In this formula, that includes Vitamin C and E, as well as Vitamins B3 and B5.
