The combination of a new antioxidant-rich form of pure Vitamin C at a 22% concentration, along with vitamin E and ferulic acid signals the skin to speed up its collagen-building process and provide deep anti-oxidant protection. The addition of a unique plant-derived hyaluronic acid at a 5% level deeply hydrates the layers of the epidermis, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Daily use provides a high dose of free radical scavenging activity that ensures nutrients, hydration and natural protection from oxidative stress caused by UV damage, resulting in brighter, more even-toned skin.
Topical Vitamin C protects skin against harm caused by exposure to sunlight. It does this by neutralizing reactive oxygen species (free radicals), the highly reactive molecules produced by the interaction of sunlight, cell membranes, and other components of skin tissue. Antioxidants protect skin by neutralizing free radicals, which would otherwise destroy skin and its components. These free radicals are stimulated by ultraviolet light and also occur naturally in the oxygen atmosphere.
As we age we lose the ability to create collagen. It is the collagen in our skin that maintains the skins elasticity. Vitamin C is the only antioxidant that has been proven to increase collagen synthesis. L-ascorbic acid serves as a signal, relaying a critical message to collagen genes to synthesize collagen, as well as being a cofactor for two enzymes important in collagen synthesis.
Regular vitamin C is very unstable and many typical vitamin C products are inactive by the time they are used on the skin, in some cases, they have become pro-oxidant and actually generate free radicals! Ground-breaking stability data on Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate guarantees real vitamin C activity and best of all, unlike L-ascorbic acid (regular vitamin C), it will not cause irritation.
This serum is great because it does not cause any irritation even at this level. Skin discolorations go bye bye. Skin texture is evened out and wrinkles and lines are finally stopped in their tracks. This helps to produce collagen and increase elasticity which means new feeling skin.
