Ingredient Glossary: The Power of Vitamin C

 

Seeking luminous, radiant skin or want to combat pigmentation, pollution or UV induced skin-stress?
Vitamin C is the answer!
Vitamin C is the most prominent antioxidant in our skin. Due to the fact that we as humans lack the enzyme enabling us to synthesise Vitamin C, we should supplement our skin with topical and internal applications. At LA CLINICA, we have a range of Vitamin C Serums to suit all skin types and concerns.

ESSENTIALS VITAMIN C ULTRA SERUM

A water-based serum formulated at a neutral pH containing 3 Vitamin C derivatives – Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate and Ascorbyl Glucoside.This serum is further boosted with Vitamin E, Oligopeptide-34 (brightening/repairing peptide), Grape Seed Extract and Sodium Hyaluronate.To ensure all these cosmeceuticals are delivered to where the skin needs them most, Tetrahydropiperine is added for superior permeation and bioavailability of the ingredients.

Specifically formulated to target:
- Age and dark spots
- Excessive pigmentation
- Blotchy skin tone
- Dull complexion
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- UV damage

Suitable for sensitive skin types that cannot handle high concentration Ascorbic Acid / Ethyl Asccorbic Acid serums.

ESSENTIALS 30% VITAMIN C ANHYDROUS HUMECTANT SERUM

A powerful water-free formulation containing 30% Ethyl Ascorbic Acid (a highly stable Vitamin C derivative that does not require conversion into ascorbic acid to function), Super Oxide Dismutase (very effective free radical scavenger), Alpha Lipoic Acid (potent anti oxidant), Oligopeptide-34 and Tetrahydropiperine.To brighten and smooth out skin texture.

Specifically formulated to target:
- Age and dark spots
- Excessive pigmentation
- Blotchy skin tone
- Dull complexion
- Fine lines and wrinkles - UV damage

VITAMIN C POTENT ANTIOXIDANT OIL

A light, non-greasy, intensely hydrating face oil containing 30% Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (Vitamin C derivative) in a base of non-comodogenic plant derived emollients with added Hyaluronic Acid, Boswellia Extract, Vitamin E and Tetrahydropiperine.Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is efficient at absorption into the dermal fibroblasts. Studies have shown that the intake of L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) into the skin after the application of Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is considerably higher than the application of L-Ascorbic Acid by itself (in-vitro). This is further boosted with the addition of Tetrahydropiperine.
