20% Vitamin C Serum, Topical
Topical Vitamin C consistently shows decreased wrinkling with better skin texture, visibly decreased photo-aging and dark circles and improved hydration especially of the peri-orbital area. Cutaneous benefits also include lightening of hyper-pigmentation and improvement of inflammatory conditions. These clinical improvements are correlated with biopsy evidence of new collagen formation and elastic tissue repair.
A significant body of scientific research supports the use of cosmeceuticals containing vitamin C. A highly significant increase in the density of skin microrelief and a decrease of the deep furrows were demonstrated when used topically for 12 weeks. Also, Vitamin C has tremendous anti-oxidant abilities and has UVA/UVB sun block protection.
So why serums?
Serums have the most concentration of the active ingredient per volume. They provide only one active ingredient so it may be compounded in the right pH and concentration so that the positive effects to your skin are maximized. This enables the serums to be active, penetrate the skin and to activate the cells. This is what delivers results.
These products work great alone. Our serums have been combined with Hyaluronic Acid to bind moisture to the skin. Apply after cleansing the skin and, if desired, before a cream or sunblock. These are a must to round out your skin care armamentarium.

To be the most active Vitamin C has to be:
- in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid

Other forms of Vitamin C have limited permeability and function. They have cytotoxic effects meaning that they often damage skin cells.
