About

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 Cā€™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. [2] This reinforces the importance of topical Vitamin C as a way for skin to reap its full benefits.

Key Ingredients

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.

    I use this moisturizer in the morning along with the Restorative Vitamin C Serum and my skin has never looked brighter or felt softer. Really helping to fade my brown spots without irritating my skin.

    I really like how lightweight this moisturizer is and I also really like that it comes in a pump not in a jar. My skin feels really soft and the Vitamin C really has helped to start fading my brown spots.

    Nice product

    Camille

    I have heard great things about this moisturizer and how well it helps to fade brown spots so I decided to give it a try. I just started using it so I am not seeing the reduction in brown spots just yet, but I really like how my skin feels, very hydrated and soft. I will continue using it b/c I can’t wait to see more results.

    Light weight & very nice

    Heather

    I am really enjoying this moisturizer, it is very light weight, not greasy and it really does a good job helping to fade the dark spots on my face. I am also happy to report that this product is fragrance free which for me is important as I am very sensitive and I do not like my skincare products to have a fragrance.

    Lifesaver!!!

    Blair

    This moisturizer has made such a big difference in the appearance of my skin. I always felt that my skin looked sallow and just down right blah and I always felt so self-conscious. After using this moisturizer for just a few short weeks I have noticed a big difference, my skin is brighter and softer and has a nice glow to it, I actually feel pretty now!! I won’t use any other moisturizer ever again! Thank you Skin Chemistry for giving me my confidence back.

    WOW!!!

    Denise P.

    I was a sun worshipper for years and my skin paid the price. I developed lots of brown spots on my face and and since I have started using the Vitamin C Renewing Moisturizer I have noticed a big difference. The brown spots have really started to fade and my skin is starting to look more even and brighter. This product is a must in your skincare routine.
