Who It’s For:
All skin types as an essential part of your anti-aging regimen at every stage of aging for prevention and repair, especially of sun damage, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone.
How It Works:
This is more than just a C serum. This is a combination of three potent, stabilized forms of vitamin C perfectly paired with a cocktail of powerful anti-aging active ingredients designed to deliver dramatic results.
Ultra stable, exceptionally powerful forms of vitamin C including 20% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, 3% Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, and 0.5% Ascorbyl Palmitate create a glowing complexion without irritating most skin types, even most of those with sensitive skin. Vitamin C aids your skin’s ability to produce collagen and combats the loss of collagen that comes with aging and damage to leave skin firmer and less lined. Its proven antioxidant power protects skin from UV damage and environmental oxidation when used along with sun protective practices.
Phloretin enhances the penetration of all active ingredients making them even more effective while also acting as a potent antioxidant in its own right. This flavonoid contributes to evening out skin tone and pigmentation while boosting the performance of other ingredients.
Hyperpigmentation, dullness, and uneven texture all get a dose of serious work from ferulic acid, resveratrol, CoQ10, turmeric extract, and glutathione, which is considered one of the body’s most essential antioxidants for age repair and prevention. The synergy of all of these active ingredients and the many others that comprise this unparalleled formula deliver noticeable improvements to the skin that have garnered media attention and a cult following of devoted users.

A little goes a long way. The serum absorbs quickly and it is tempting to reapply. If serum seems to be sticky, or if makeup does not go on smoothly, apply less until you find the amount that absorbs completely. Use daily and consistently for most noticeable results and long-term benefits.
