About the product

Vitamin C Serum (30ml)

Please Note that due to the high percentage of Ascorbic Acid in this product it might not suit users with sensitive skin.

A powerful anti-oxidant
Topical Vitamin C protects skin against harm caused by exposure to sunlight. It does this by neutralizing reactive oxygen species (free radicals), the highly reactive molecules produced by the interaction of sunlight, cell membranes, and other components of skin tissue.  Antioxidants protect skin by neutralizing free radicals, which would otherwise destroy skin and its components. These free radicals are stimulated by ultraviolet light and also occur naturally in the oxygen atmosphere. Most experts agree that the action of free radicals is the single biggest contributor to premature ageing of the skin

A Collagen booster
As we age we lose the ability to create collagen. It is the collagen in our skin that maintains the skins elasticity. Lack of collagen in the skin leads to the formation of lines and wrinkles and also causes sagging of the skin. Collagen is a form of protein and is composed primarily of three amino acids. Fibroblasts in the skin convert these three amino acids into collagen. Vitamin c plays a vital role in the synthesis of collagen from amino acids. Without sufficient levels of Vitamin C the conversion of amino acids in to collagen can not take place effectively and collagen levels will decline.

Topical Vitamin C must be in the form of L-ascorbic acid to be useful to the body and skin. Just because a product says Vitamin C on the label doesn't mean the product contains L-ascorbic acid. Wanting to offer Vitamin C products, many companies have used derivatives of Vitamin C, such as ascorbyl palmitate and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. Derivatives are easier to stabilize, but they are not L-ascorbic acid, which is the only topical form of Vitamin C the body can use. Vitamin C derivatives do not perform the same way as topical L-ascorbic acid. These studies show that derivatives are either not absorbed or not converted to L-ascorbic acid in high enough concentrations to have an effect.

Often manufacturers state Vitamin C on the label without stating the concentration. To be effective a product should contain a concentration of at least 10%.

In creams lotions and serums ascorbic acid oxidises fairly quickly and loses some of its therapeutic potency. If you buy a product containing Vitamin C off the shelf it is likely to have lost its effectiveness. Our Vitamin C Serums are never more than 7 days old. Fresh batches of the base are made up each week and the actual ascorbic acid is only added on the day of dispatch. Further to our commitment to ensure the maximum potency of our serum we now add Ferulic Acid to our Vitamin C Serum because it has the ability to stabilise Vitamin C ensuring it retains its potency for considerably longer.***

The serum also contains:

Vitamin E,  a powerful anti-oxidant which targets damaging free radicals and renders them ineffective. It is free radical activity in our skin that is probably the biggest single cause of aging

Ferulic Acid - Research shows that the addition of Ferulic Acid to a solution of Vitamins C and E doubles its photo-protection of skin, and stabilises the Vitamin C so that it retains its potency for longer.

How to Use
Apply a small amount to the fingers and apply to face massaging gently into the skin. Use daily. The serum absorbs quickly allowing you to apply make-up if you wish.

Ingredients: L-ascorbic Acid, Vitamin E Acetate, Ferulic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, MSM, Water,  Glycerine, Rosewater, Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Cherry Kernel Oil, Isodecyl Neopentanoate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Evening Primrose Oil, Emulsifying Wax, Cetyl Esters, Benzyl Alcohol & Salicylic Acid & Glycerin & Sorbic Acid, Xanthan,

*** Please Note: If ordering more than one serum for your own use, please request one or more serums with the ascorbic acid in a sachet. The contents can then be added to the serum when needed and ensures maximum effectiveness of the serum.
