I have used many vitamin C lotions and serums but this one particularly stands out compared to any other products on the market. Not to mention that they are paraben free, fragrance free, dye free, animal cruelty free, sulfate free and phthalate free!

What? How? Why?…
Vitamin C is a naturally occurring vitamin and antioxidant. Vitamin C also referred to as ascorbic acid or L-ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It is also involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen in our skin. Additionally, Vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals caused by UV exposure. This plays a huge role in combating dark spots by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase, which helps to prevent melanin production. With continuous use of L-ascorbic acid, you skin will have increased collagen production, protection from free radicals, and lightened pigmentations.
When taking vitamin C orally, the absorption of oral supplement through the small intestine inadequately benefits the skin. This is due to the natural mechanism of absorption of the supplement, which supplies major organs first, thus, leaving a finite amount of vitamin c for your skin.
Absorption of pure vitamin C is optimal at a PH level of 3.5. Because of its acidic nature, it tends to oxidize fairly quickly when sitting in a base solution, with multiple exposure from usage or from sampling leaving your products left untouched for months. Once it oxidizes, the effects of vitamin C will weaken, making it less effective.
Choosing a right product that keeps the l-ascorbic acid optimal is key for effective vitamin C treatment. Select a higher concentrated formula like a serum for the best penetration. I recommend the AlumierMDEneractive C&E Serum. The company has patented a design that releases L-ascorbic acid crystals into a serum that activates the serum for 30 days.
