Brighten up dull, tired skin with a powerful punch of Vitamin C wrapped in a lush, nourishing cream. Enriched with 4% Vitamin C, this restorative cream provides a daily dose of luminosity and helps to fade dark spots and discoloration, leaving your skin with a radiant glow. It deeply hydrates and smooths skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while Vitamin C’s antioxidant properties guard skin from oxidative and envirionmental stressors.
Vitamin C is a co-enzyme that supports healthy functions in the body and the skin such as collagen synthesis and assisting in antioxidant protection against-UV induced photo damage.[1,2]
While normal skin contains high concentrations of vitamin C, reports indicate that vitamin C levels are lower in aged or photodamaged skin. [2,3,4,5] Furthermore, since the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis, lacks the blood vessels that normally deliver nutrients to cells and has limited movement of fluids between cells, it is likely that Vitamin C obtained through diet alone is not easily able to reach the skin.  This reinforces the importance of topical Vitamin C as a way for skin to reap its full benefits.
Vitamin C can benefit a variety of skin types. Due to its potential anti-inflammatory effect, Vitamin C may also help in treating inflammatory skin conditions like acne and and rosacea. It can promote the skin’s healing process and prevent post-inflammatory discoloration. [6,7] Vitamin C may also help lock-in hydration by supporting the skin’s ability to protect itself from water loss. [8,9]
When used as part of a daily skin care regimen, vitamin C may encourage collagen synthesis, increasing skin’s resiliency and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C may help reduce inflammation and related redness and works to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier, locking in moisture for softer and more supple skin.
The Vitamin C form used in Skin Chemistry solutions, known as ethyl ascorbic acid, is optimized for skin care products due to its ability to provide consistent and stable benefits for a longer duration. When choosing a topical Vitamin C product, it’s very important to choose one that comes in an airless pack. Exposure to air, causes oxidation in vitamin C, reducing its potency over time and causing discoloration to the formula.
