Vitamin C: It Brightens, Tightens, Lightens...

…and of course, like anything, takes consistency, repetition and discipline.

Superactive Capsules Pure Double Vitamin C & E Serum

4 Mins Read

Topical Vitamin C has multiple benefits for your skin, so whether you’re looking for radiance boosting, or pigmentation brightening, or over the longer-term, to help kick your natural collagen-production up a notch, we’ve sourced three of the best Vitamin C serums (ok, one is really a lightweight moisturiser). Two are from the best lab in Switzerland and one is from the best cosmeceutical company in Italy!

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VITAMIN C?

Vitamin C Lotion

Some call it the 'holy grail' skincare vitamin, because it...

  • Is a potent antioxidant. And applied regularly (consistency is key), it can neutralise free radicals, which are suspected to be ground zero for inflammation-based ageing.

  • Helps boost your skin’s natural regeneration process, luminosity and radiance, plus equalises uneven skin tone and improves your skin’s texture.

  • Helps fight fine lines and can help fade acne scars.

  • Brightens the skin and helps repair damage from UV rays.

  • Helps protect your skin from environmental aggressors - making it a morning skincare routine essential.

  • Is universally recommended by dermatologists and skincare experts everywhere.

CAN VITAMIN C IRRITATE MY SKIN?

Vitamin C shouldn’t cause any skin irritation if used correctly, but if the products you’re using have a high concentration, the acidic qualities can cause some minor sensitivity.

If you have sensitive skin, make sure you:

  • Choose skincare products with a maximum 10% concentration of Vitamin C.

  • Introduce it gradually. If it’s recommended to use a product twice a day, start off with one dose to give your skin time to adjust.

THE MANY NAMES OF VITAMIN C…

Vitamin C goes by many names in the beauty industry. These are the titles to look out for on ingredients labels:

L-ascorbic Acid - The chemical name for Vitamin C. It’s pure, but it can be unstable when blended with other cosmetic ingredients.

Ascorbyl Phosphate - A slightly weaker form of Vitamin C that can be dissolved in water (making it a popular choice for water-based skincare products like serums).

Nikkol VC-IP® - A cosmetic Vitamin C that can be dissolved in oil-based products, like moisturisers.

Vitamin C Ester – A non-acidic version of Vitamin C, which can be more soothing on sensitive skin.

Superox-C – Extracted from the Vitamin C-rich Kakadu Plum and used in a range of beauty products.
