C+ is the ultimate innovation in urban skincare
An antioxidant-rich breathable shield, protecting us from the harsh environment of the modern world.
The most sought-after treatments in my clinic are those that address ageing skin, therefore I devote constant attention to understanding how to confront the myriad of aggressors that lead to visible lines, wrinkles, and dullness.
C+ is a next-generation skin shot, combining the latest in Vitamin C research technology, where each ingredient has been specifically selected for its role on the skin.
Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that integrates into the structure of the skin harmoniously; it aids in collagen and elastin synthesis by slowing down the damage caused by free radicals – unstable molecules that break down our internal scaffolding; collagen and elastin. Limiting these free radicals is essential as they both cause and increase the rate of the wrinkles and skin dryness, so limiting these damaging molecules is vital.
When married together with powerful antioxidants Ferulic Acid and Vitamin E, its role on the skin becomes two-fold; Enhancing the protection of the cells against environmental stress caused by free radicals that contribute to atmospheric ageing, whilst also stabilising Ethyl ascorbic acid further, creating a highly potent, long-lasting formula. The addition of hyaluronic acid, plumps and hydrates, leaving an even, dewy complexion.
What Should You Look For In a Vitamin C Serum?
- Vitamin C serums should be made from Ethyl Ascorbic Acid at 10% plus for maximal absorption.
- It is incredibly stable unlike L-ascorbic acid, it doesn’t oxidise in light, heat or oxygen. It is also more readily taken up by the skin cells than any other direct-acting forms of topical Vitamin C, with 85 % conversion to Ascorbic Acid in the dermis.
- The addition of ferulic acid, vitamin E, and Glutathione for added stability, stimulates regeneration and repair further protecting against oxidative stress.
- The serum must have a pH that is less than 3.5. Without that, the serum won’t be able to penetrate the skin and will irritate.
A lot of research went into the formulation of A+ complex – I have sought out ingredients with the most advanced regenerative properties that enhance the delivery and stability of the Vitamin C, whilst achieving the right pH to prevent irritation. I have been really pleased with the improvements I have seen in my clients’ skin in keeping their skin-tight, clear and youthful.
Tip: Use within 3 months. Allow to dry completely before applying any other products. Avoid getting into your eyes. If you use DNA or A+ complex alternate these at night and use your Vitamin C+ Serum in the morning,
