Ascorbic Acid is required to produce collagen, but our bodies don't make it. And cutaneous (skin) levels cannot be achieved well by ingestion, hence topical application is essential. That's why we recommend Reviv-C 36% Vitamin C Serum with Ethylated Ascorbic Acid, the new gold standard, as part of a complete skincare regimen.

WITH PHLORETIN, FERULIC ACID, KAKADU PLUM, & VITAMIN E
Perhaps the strongest collagen supporter and daily oxidation fighter you can find, Reviv-C + Phloretin Ferulic Kakadu Serum also revives skin tone, enhances barrier function, and fights photoaging, discoloration, and melasma. It also zaps blemishes, and stimulates the skin's defenses against damage. Pave the way to brighter, firmer, younger-looking skin.
Highly potent at a jaw-dropping concentration of 36% Vitamin C, yet relatively gentle and highly stable, Reviv-C is formulated with a novel ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) + TDH Ascorbate (an oil-soluble Vitamin C) + Kakadu Plum, in a supercharged antioxidant network of Phloretin, Ferulic Acid, Vitamin E, Superoxide Dismutase, Glutathione, Astaxanthin, and Pomegranate.
The serum helps the components maintain potency and stability by being waterless / anhydrous (water speeds oxidation).
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.
For all but the very most sensitive skin types.
While some of these ingredient combinations and strengths can be patent-restricted, we work around such patents in several proprietary ways, boosting efficacy, stability, and potency at the same time.
Reviv-C is a replacement and upgrade to our popular Phloretin Ferulic C Serum D.I.Y. Kit, now discontinued.
ABOUT THE KEY INGREDIENTS
25% Et-VC™ ETHYLATED L-ASCORBIC ACID
A new, pure “ethylated” form of L-Ascorbic Acid that is extremely stable, Et-VC™ is unlike other C derivatives: it does not need to be converted to l-ascorbic acid (pure form of Vitamin C useful to the skin) in the dermis. It’s already converted!
ELAA also is shown to penetrate deep into the dermis/skin to provide superior antioxidant protection, stimulate the appearance of collagen production, and visibly brighten dark spots.
11% THD ASCORBATE
Ultra-potent yet ultra-stable, TDHA is 50X more potent than traditional Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid). This “gold standard” C helps improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, texture, and firmness.
Australian Kakadu Plum fruit has the highest known Vitamin C concentration of any single natural food source in the world. Note that the vitamin content of natural foods are estimates and vary depending upon conditions, so we combine it with stabilized vitamin C from other sources.
Derived from apples and the root bark of fruit trees, this unique antioxidant exhibits antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. It can protect against a range of reactive molecules, and help the serum penetrate deeper into the skin. Phloretin helps improve skin turnover, and improves the appearance of discoloration.
0.5% FERULIC ACID
A plant-based natural phenol antioxidant that can inhibit the appearance of melanin production and reduce oxidative stress. It is known to boost the effects of vitamin C and vitamin E. Ferulic acid has also been shown to neutralize free radicals such as superoxide, hydroxyl radicals and nitric oxide.
BIOCELL SOD (SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE)
SOD is one of THE most important components in the fight against oxidation inside cells, since superoxide is the main ROS (reactive oxygen species).
SOD is expensive, and difficult to obtain, and difficult to solubilize and stabilize. Our version is a new, unique molecule derived from grape skin yeast, and has a very high degree of activity, and is very stable.
This potent antioxidant targets free radicals, and is a great skin brightener. Glutathione may also be beneficial for those with cystic acne, acne-prone skin, or even just the occasional breakout.
ABOUT THE BASE
Reviv-C Serum’s base is a new high-purity, sustainable corn sugar-based solvent carrier and epidermal penetration enhancer: Dimethyl Isosorbide, or DMI. Because it has the ability to dissolve loose fats in the skin, it can carry actives across the skin membrane. This quality is especially beneficial when feeding the skin with antioxidants like the powerful ones contained in Reviv-C. DMI is also known to lessen skin irritation associated with aggressive active ingredients.
The fragrance-free, vegan base also contains a silky CPS organosilicon (derived from sand): an inert, safe, non-reactive material with a unique spreadable fluidity, that is non-comedogenic and does not clog pores.
While the serum does not have fragrance added, it does have a characteristic citrus-like scent that dissipates rather quickly.
The serum replicates the lubricity and slip of an oil, but does not contain any oils. Any slippery feeling will disappear within about 30 seconds, leaving a dry smooth finish.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
A test patch is recommended before use. Apply to face, neck, chest and hands before applying sunscreen and before other topicals or makeup. If irritation occurs, apply only every few days or over moisturizer. Use daily in the morning and/or evening.
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.
The package comes with a glass medicine dropper applicator. We also offer an alternative dispenser — a lotion-style treatment pump — should you prefer that type of dispensing, especially with the thin viscosity of this serum. Select the optional add-on dispenser above, for a small additional fee.

This product seems quite powerful and does a good job at diminishing skin discoloration. It didn't cause any reactions with my skin, and my skin can be a bit sensitive. The one drawback is the dropper dispenser. This product is quite runny so the dropper doesn't do a good job of keeping the product in till it is dispensed.
This C serum is amazing. First the percentage is maximum so you get a bib bang for your buck. Importantly is how well it penetrates your skin and spreads nicely. I highly recommend!
I purchased a series of items and my skin couldn't look better. I have minimized age lines and discoloration in my skin. This stuff is "Awesome."
Started with this product, last night, and was immediately impressed with the way my skin felt...and still feels, this morning. There is a dry smoothness to this formula, one can feel it soak into the skin, cleanly. This is a distinctively different feel from the other Reviv products in my regimen, and it feels as though it is treating my skin from the inside. It's too soon to tell how this is going to play out over time; but if it's anything like other products from Reviv, I know I'm going to be impressed with it.
I love this product. Just after 1 use, my skin is clear and bright. My spots are lighter and I haven't had a breakout since I started using this.
