Ascorbic Acid (L-Ascorbic Acid)
Commonly known as Vitamin C, ascorbic acid is a water-soluble powerhouse ingredient derived synthetically or naturally from citrus fruits. It's one of the most effective antioxidant ingredients in skincare that protects against environmental stressors such as sun damage and is a highly effective anti-aging skincare ingredient. Regular use of ascorbic acid helps to brighten and even skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and boosts collagen production
How to use?
Targets anti-aging and uneven skin tone. Generally suitable for all skin types. Sensitive skin types should start using in lower concentrations to help minimize the risk of irritation. Best used in the morning as part of a routine and should be paired with SPF to maximize sun protection.
Vitamin C can become unstable when exposed to sunlight, water, and air which can cause product discolouration and reduce effectiveness.
