Natural, Organic, Preservative Free, 20% Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate)
Thanks to a simple, non-GMO maize carbohydrate, we've been able to kick preservatives to the curb so all our skincare purists, quality sticklers and sensitive skin having peeps can revel in the goodness of a truly effective vitamin C product. With a light texture and soak in time of no more than one minute, this serum features our fantastically stable and effective form of vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate), but at a seriously higher percentage, which means the noticeable results of our vitamin C serum just got a whole lot larger!
Vitamin C helps to protect and repair the skin from what's known as photo damage, which are the various effects wrought on your skin by exposure to the sun and other elements like harsh cold and environmental pollutants. All of these things generate free radicals, which in turn go to work wreaking havoc within the skin. When left un-checked they destroy collagen and elastin and cause dark spots and fine lines in abundance. Not exactly what you want to be happening to your skin!
By using vitamin C topically, especially when it's in the form of Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, the negative effects of photo damage are prevented and repaired. Collagen production is encouraged, as is that of elastin. Dark spots are faded, skin texture is improved, fine lines fill up and your complexion is brightened. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate has also been clinically shown to increase free radical protection from the sun by up to 50%, making it a truly essential vitamin in your skin protective routine. It's why vitamin C is such a big deal.
But why would we stop there? Proper skincare is all about synergy, so we added our phenomenal Prodew amino acid complex for complete and advanced moisture retention in the skin. Made from a cruelty free fermentation process, each individual amino acid is painstakingly purified before being added to the other aminos for the creation of this blend. As one of the essential building blocks for the skin, not only do amino acids help with moisture retention, they also help to facilitate the proper function of the skin cells. This results in skin that literally acts, looks and feels smoother.
We've also included the long hailed form of vitamin B6 known as Panthenol. Non-irritating, hydrating and balancing to the skin, once absorbed it is turned into vitamin B5- otherwise known as panthothenic acid. Used as a popular dietary supplement by people with skin issues that range from dark spots to acne, bypassing the digestive process in favor of quicker and more effective topical use leads to better results.
Panthenol, like our amino acid blend, lends itself to skin plumping. This is due to its humectant-like properties that attract and hold moisture within the skin. It also helps with redness and brightening the complexion as a whole, which makes it a fantastic ingredient to use in conjunction with skin-brightening and balancing vitamin C.
Beneficial plant extracts like Green Tea and succulent plant allies such as organic Aloe complete this revolutionary formula for a well rounded, total skin rejuvenation serum that protects, restores and repairs like nothing else.
Can be used morning and night, and worn under makeup.
