1. What makes this serum different from other vitamin C serums?
i. Best form of vitamin C used after l-ascorbic acid (l-ascorbic acid is highly acidic and can be irritating for sensitive, acne-prone skin)
ii. Combines different antioxidants (vitamin C, ferulic acid, vitamin E, green tea, etc.) to boost performance
iii. Contains peptides and hyaluronic acid that boost skin moisture levels and overall skin functioning
2. Which form of vitamin C is in the product and how much vitamin C does it contain?
The formula contains 5% sodium ascorbyl phosphate. Studies have shown 5% is an optimum level for this derivative. Over 5%, it is added for claim purposes only.
3. I am used to using higher percentages of vitamin C. Can I still use this?
Absolutely. Higher strength vitamin C serums can irritate the skin and do more harm than good. A lower strength can work better.
4. What can I mix it with?
It is advisable to use vitamin C alone (in your morning routine) along with your sunscreen.
