Topical vitamin C made at a low pH has long been proven to have present and future benefits for the skin. From stimulating collagen fibers production to lightening discoloration (melasma, brown spots, scars), and effectively neutralizing the free radicals that cause you to prematurely age and that also cause skin cancer, I recommend topical vitamin C for all people over age 10.
It is important to know that you get what you shop for when it comes to this specific antioxidant. You have to look for a company that knows how to formulate C, and the proper pH it has to be at, to penetrate the skin.
We harness the power and feature 2 of the Vitamin C's! L Ascorbic acid, the GOLD standard proven clinically over and over to "de-age" your skin, and then, unlike others, we bring in the magical powers of Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate. M.A.P. is a water-soluble derivative of Vitamin C. It is more stable in water but is less potent than direct L-Ascorbic Acid. Together, these 2 C's will provide you with every benefit of "C".
We use MSM as well in this serum because it has been proven to take C deeper into the skin due to MSM penetrating so easily. It literally helps the C get in and start its magic.
Because we chose to make the bottle white glass (occlusive), and use a sprayer top, you won't waste any serum by spilling it! You are going to LOVE spraying this C serum on! No air in the bottle means that your precious Vitamin C won't break down and get weak and turn brown.
To be the most effective, topical vitamin C must be formulated at a pH of 2 to 2.5. This acidic pH is why people with sensitive skin might experience tingle or stinging when applying. There are also different forms of vitamin C, and some are more effective (and more expensive) than others. Lastly, the product must have a certain concentration of vitamin C. To properly formulate topical vitamin C is tricky and a bit expensive, which is why you may want to be wary of cheap vitamin C (especially when shopping online). Always look for L Ascorbic Acid and Magnesium Ascorbyl Palmitate in a blend, like my product is formulated. These 2 C's are the best, most effective, and belong together. Your skin will thank you!
Fortunately, when it comes to oral vitamin C supplements, the above rules do not apply, and a generic drugstore version is just fine. But, oral vitamin C doesn’t have the same effects on the skin as a topically applied C, since not enough of the nutrient gets to the skin when taken orally.
It is essential to use vitamin C if you want younger-looking skin. Vitamin C is a proven must-have. It is also amazing on sunburn and as a daily toner. There is no stinging, but you will feel a bit of a tingle for a few seconds as it seeps into your skin.
