Drawing on my three decades of experience in the beauty industry, I can assert that Vitamin C has earned its esteemed reputation as a timeless skincare hero. With consistent use of our Vitamin C products, you are not just caring for your skin, but paving the path to the radiant complexion you've always desired and deserve.
Our Vitamin C Brightening Serum Vitamin C Nourishing Cream are formulated with my favorite form of Vitamin C; Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD Ascorbate). This type of Vitamin C is known to be stable, non-irritating and suitable for most skin types, even sensitive ones. The fact that it is oil-soluble allows it to provide more targeted benefits. THD Ascorbate, a powerful antioxidant, effectively targets dark spots, uneven skin texture, and dullness while also helping to protect against environmental aggressors.
The Vitamin C Brightening Serum is a highly concentrated formula containing 15% THD Ascorbate. Its lightweight, fast-absorbing, non-sticky texture is perfect for those who have already established a skincare routine and are looking to add a powerful, targeted treatment to their regimen. In addition to THD Ascorbate, this serum also incorporates a meticulously curated blend of other key ingredients that, when combined, work better together. These include Niacinamide, which helps to smooth uneven texture, Superoxide Dismutase, which helps counteract the impact pollution can have on the skin; and Pomegranate Extract, which helps to diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure and aging. As a best practice, when starting to use Vitamin C with higher concentrations, it is best to begin with a gradual approach, using it 2-3 times a week and gradually increasing it to daily use.
The Vitamin C Nourishing Cream combines 5% THD Ascorbate with Hyaluronic Acid. When blended, Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, and Hyaluronic Acid, a moisture-binding humectant, work together to protect and hydrate the skin, resulting in a brighter and more youthful-looking complexion. Vitamin C can also help boost the effectiveness of Hyaluronic Acid by reducing the free radicals on the skin and allowing the Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate the skin better. To further enrich this daily moisturizer, I’ve included a complex of marine-based ingredients known to be rich in minerals and nutrients to better help offer long-term moisturization. In addition, Radish Root, also known as Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, a natural ferment source, helps protect and balance the skin's natural barrier function. Together, these ingredients create a synergistic effect that helps to promote healthy, hydrated, and balanced skin morning and night.
With regular use, both of our Vitamin C products, especially together, will help show a significant difference in your skin's radiance and overall health.
The choice between the two comes down to personal preference, your current skincare routine, and what your skin needs at any particular moment. If you are looking for a highly concentrated, targeted treatment, try the Vitamin C Brightening Serum. If you are just starting out with Vitamin C or looking for a moisturizing option with Vitamin C and anti-aging benefits, try the Vitamin C Nourishing Cream.
For those who want to incorporate both products into their skincare routine, I recommend applying the Vitamin C Brightening Serum in the morning to help prevent damage from free radicals that can occur throughout the day, followed by your favorite moisturizer and sunscreen. Then at night, while the skin is in its natural repair mode and experiences moisture loss, apply the Vitamin C Brightening Serum first to combat signs of premature aging. Let it absorb for a moment, then apply the Vitamin C Nourishing Cream to help hydrate and reduce trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL).
