WITH FERULIC AND ALPHA LIPOIC ACID + VITAMIN C
Restore elasticity, correct the signs of photoaging, help promote collagen synthesis, reduce mottled complexion and redness, protect against UV damage, and restore a more youthful & radiant appearance. Combine with our USP (pharmaceutical-grade) Vitamin C Serum Powder, included in a bonus box, for a D.I.Y. equivalent of award-winning SkinCeuticals® Phloretin CF®, CE Ferulic® or Professional Strength Obagi® Professional-C Serum® -- at a fraction of the price.
Our two-step, stay-fresh packaging isolates the pure vitamin C until activation, maintaining its freshness and full power for maximum results.
The kit produces a serum with up to 20% l-ascorbic acid, the strongest amount that can be solubilized in water. And its pH of 3.0 makes it very stable, so it lasts much longer than competitive serums which oxidize pretty rapidly. While that pH is low, it's in the "goldilocks" range — not too low to be excessively irritating, but low enough to be properly effective. And you can customize the strength if you prefer a more gentle approach.
Immediately experience brighter, more radiant skin and with continued use, reveal skin that's noticeably firmer, smoother, more even-toned, and with visibly diminished lines and wrinkles for a radiant, youthful-looking glow.
ABOUT THE KEY INGREDIENTS
This antioxidant exhibits antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. It can inhibit elastase activity, and can protect against a range of reactive molecules known to cause damage and DNA mutations among integral cell types.
A plant-based natural phenol antioxidant that can inhibit melanin production and reduce oxidative stress. It is known to boost the effects of ascorbic acid. Ferulic acid has also been shown to neutralize free radicals such as superoxide, hydroxyl radicals and nitric oxide.
ALPHA LIPOIC ACID
This important enzyme is a powerful micronutrient that is deficient in aging skin. It can minimize the appearance of enlarged pores and fine lines, and soften skin texture.
This powerful antioxidant can effectively break peroxide chain reactions and reduce the acute inflammation reaction of the skin. It can reduce the appearance of age spots and reduce puffiness and erythema.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a polysaccharide and a compound that occurs naturally in every tissue of the body. It helps protect cell structures and serves as a water reservoir for the cells. As we age, skin loses hyaluronic acid and the ability to hold sufficient water in this reservoir. Feeding new hyaluronic acid to skin helps hydrate skin's intercellular reservoir, raising skin's moisture level, and smoothing the visibility of age lines. Topically, hyaluronic acid has water storing properties, making it an ideal agent for perceptible and visible improvement of skin conditions. It forms a thin transparent visco elastic surface film that helps to preserve the characteristics of youthful and healthy skin: suppleness, elasticity and tone.
L-ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C) SERUM POWDER
This pharmaceutical-grade powder exfoliates, promotes skin renewal and collagen synthesis, protects against UV damage and promotes healing.
Combine a vial of our L-Ascorbic Acid Serum Powder with the Phloretin Serum for a D.I.Y. equivalent of popular products like SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF® or CE Ferulic®. Add just the quantity you desire to make the potency you desire, from 1% to 20%.
Pour the serum from the pump bottle into the mixing vial containing the powder. Cap and shake very well; then let sit until the powder dissolves completely (up to an hour). Shake again; then pour it back into the serum bottle for use.
Utilizing all the powder will yield a 20% vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) product, which is the strongest and is the largest percentage of ascorbic acid that can be solubilized in liquid.
If you'd prefer a mixture that is less potent, just use less powder to make the potency you desire, from 1% to 20%. Note for example that SkinCeuticals® Phloretin CF® contains 10% ascorbic acid (use half the powder in the vial); SkinCeuticals® CE Ferulic® contains 15% (use 3/4 vial); Professional Strength Obagi® Professional-C Serum contains 20% (use the full vial).
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
A test patch is recommended before use. In the morning, apply to face, neck, chest and hands after applying sunscreen and before other topicals or makeup. If irritation occurs, apply every other day or over moisturizer. Shake well before use, and ideally keep refrigerated; the product will begin to lose potency within a few months after first use (especially if mixed with our Vitamin C Serum Powder). This serum can increase your skin's sensitivity to sunlight. The use of a well-formulated broad spectrum UVA/UVB blocking sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 is recommended for daily use.
