Infused with the most shelf stable + effective form of vitamin C, sodium ascorbyl phosphate (10%), for its ability to combat hyperpigmentation and dark spots, this serum was created to gently but effectively turn over skin cells to reveal a brighter, even complexion over time. Inspired by a popular vitamin C serum on the market that contains an unstable, highly oxidative vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), we included only clinically proven, active ingredients and left out the fillers and artificial preservatives. Tested only on willing + happy humans, this serum has proven itself to be a super effective yet gentle & deliciously scented part of our skin care ritual.
A Few Key Ingredients:
Ferulic acid ~ Working alongside vitamin C, ferulic acid is an antioxidant that works to boost the effects of other ingredients, especially antioxidants, helping to protect overall skin integrity by reducing the development of fine lines, spots, and wrinkles. Thanks to its ability to inhibit the enzyme tyrosinase, which causes melanogenesis (the production of melanin), ferulic acid is clinically proven to lighten and brighten the skin to reveal its best, beautiful self.
Niacinamide ~ A muti-functional super ingredient, niacinamide increases the production of ceramides, which protect your skin barrier and seal in moisture as well as helping to repair damage and neutralize free radicals that can cause skin cancer and the breakdown of collagen and elastin. As both an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, it also neutralizes and calms the skin’s inflammatory responses to things like UV radiation and cell turnover.
MSM ~ Well known in the healthcare industry, MSN, or Methyl Sulphonyl Methane, is a natural form of organic sulphur compound that is found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells, including skin cells. It's regarded as a highly effective treatment for conditions including acne, eczema and psoriasis, as well as sensitive, and problematic skin while helping to keep the skin healthy and strong to guard against premature aging and skin damage.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil ~ Thanks to the unique composition of this oil with its high levels of vitamin E and K and the natural antioxidants that stimulate collagen production, prickly pear seed oil helps to brighten under-eye circles and may improve the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin pigmentation. This precious oil is unparalleled in its ability to brighten the appearance of skin while its essential fatty acids hold moisture and keep the collagen layer of your skin nourished, helping to keep pores tight for a more flawless appearance.
