Is Your Vitamin C Stable?

Vitamin C has three proven skin benefits: antioxidant, collagen booster, and skin brightener.

During the 18th century, sailors noticed that if they ate plenty of citrus fruits it helped to prevent scurvy (caused by Vitamin C deficiency). No one knew then, what it was inside citrus fruits that helped. Scientists managed to figure out only in the 1930s what Vitamin C is.  

With growing research, it has been seen to have tremendous health benefits not only for our body but also for our skin. It’s the primary water-soluble antioxidant in our tissue and plays a big role in the complicated process where our skin creates collagen. 

Hence, it’s really good to have plenty of Vitamin C in our body and in our skin but the trick is that our body cannot make it for itself. We have to take it entirely from outside sources. Citrus fruits, black currants, red pepper or guava are some of the Vitamin C rich foods that you should eat regularly. 

 

But, eating Vitamin C rich food does not help our skin to have high levels of it. Also, sun exposure and environmental pollution reduces the Vitamin C levels in our skin.  

To take care of your Vitamin C intake for skin, we have curated a highly potent yet stable serum.  

So what sets our serum apart?

  1. We use one of the most stable forms of Vitamin C, i.e. 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid. L-ascorbic acid (AA), commonly known as vitamin C, has been widely used in topical formulations for many years as an antioxidant and anti-aging ingredient. However, the physicochemical properties of AA are not optimal for skin uptake and the molecule is also unstable, readily undergoing oxidation on exposure to air. The compound 3-o-ethyl-l-ascorbic acid (EA) has been developed recently as a stable vitamin C derivative and has shown great stability in topical products. Unlike Normal Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid and its derivatives), these do not oxidize and hence are able to penetrate better into the dermis giving effective results.
  2. Compounded with 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid makes it extremely potent for moisture retention of the skin which in turn helps in making skin supple, soft and youthful.
  3. Natural Actives like black pepper, Tea Tree, Willow Bark, Lotus and Orange enhance the effects of the serum on skin.
