C+ is the ultimate treatment for treating anti-ageing and hyper-pigmentation.

The most sought-after treatments in our clinic address ageing and pigmentation issues. Therefore, we devote constant attention to understanding how to confront the myriad of aggressors that lead to visible lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and skin dullness;

We have sourced ingredients with the most advanced regenerative properties within this formula that enhance Vitamin C’s delivery and stability, creating a powerful skin treatment that has a dual role on your skin, keeping it taut, clear, and youthful.

Your skin naturally contains antioxidants that defend against free radicals from the environment; these are unstable molecules that break down your skin’s cells that can lead to premature ageing. When environmental stressors outweigh your natural antioxidants, your skin can no longer protect itself.

Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is an incredibly stable form of Vitamin C that is more readily taken up by your skin cells than any other form, with 85% conversion to pure Ascorbic Acid in the dermis.

It quenches damaging free radicals, warding off lines and wrinkles by aiding with the synthesis of collagen and elastin.

The unique combination of NZ Totara, Vitamin E, and Ferulic Acid are potent network antioxidants that further stabilise Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, creating a highly concentrated, long-lasting formula that leaves your complexion plump, radiant, and youthful-looking.

Hyperpigmentation: When combined with Malic acid, Vitamin C actively works on pigmentation issues by blocking tyrosinase, the enzyme that converts tyrosine to melanin (pigment). Lowering the levels of tyrosinase within your skin inhibits excess melanin production before it begins; breaking down existing stores of tyrosinase can help diminish the appearance of pigmentation. Ethylated Ascorbic Acid – the form of Vitamin C we use in our formulas – helps to ‘switch off the control centre of the tyrosinase molecule, so that it cannot spark the production of melanin. Malic acid gently sloughs dead skin cells, so the Vitamin C can penetrate deeper, helping to pull pigment from the deeper layers of your skin.

Tip: If you use DNA or A+ Complex, alternate these at night and use C+ in the morning; otherwise, they may cancel out the effectiveness of the ingredients.

What Should You Look For In a Vitamin C Serum?

  • to prevent the serum from irritating your skin, it must have a pH that is less than 3.5
  • look for a stable form of Vitamin C like Ethyl Ascorbic Acid – unlike L-ascorbic acid, it won’t oxidise in light, heat, or oxygen
  • ensure your formula has additional antioxidants that help to stabilise the formula; they also help to protect your skin against oxidative stress
  • any Vitamin C serums should have a concentration of at least 10% Ethyl Ascorbic Acid for maximal absorption

Skin Health Benefits

  • resurfaces with gentle Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), bringing a luminous quality to your skin
  • restores dermal thickness, enhances tissue repair and promotes healing of scar tissue
  • wards off premature ageing by neutralising damaging free radicals caused by environmental aggressors
  • stimulates collagen, particularly collagen type I and type III, for firmer, plumper, and more youthful skin
  • leaves a clear, even complexion by suppressing melanin production, which diminishes hyperpigmentation and photo-ageing

Ingredients

10% Ethyl Ascorbic Acid: The purest form of easily-absorbed Vitamin C is more readily taken up by your skin cells than any other form, with 85% conversion to pure Ascorbic Acid in the dermis. It gently lightens and brightens your skin for a radiant and youthful complexion and also provides exceptional antioxidant protection whilst stimulating collagen production and protecting your skin cells from oxidative DNA damage. Powerful Antioxidants Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid synergistically stabilise the Ethyl Ascorbic Acid to create a highly potent, long-lasting formula.
Totara: A naturally-occurring extract of New Zealand Totara that delivers a boost of antimicrobial and free radical-fighting antioxidants to protect your skin from the ageing effects of inflammation.
Malic acid: Derived from apples, this Alpha-Hydroxy Acid gently loosens the connections between impacted surface cells, allowing them to shed naturally so other ingredients can absorb more effectively,
Vitamin E: Found naturally in your skin, Vitamin E naturally accumulates at the base of hair follicles, promoting natural lipids to your skin’s surface in the form of sebum to soften dry, mature skin. The primary function of Vitamin E is to protect against free radicals and UV damage and is incredibly potent when paired with its antioxidant partner, Vitamin C.
Ferulic Acid: Referred to as the “master” antioxidant, it stabilises Ethyl-Ascorbic Acid within a formula, boosting the utilisation of antioxidants and inhibiting the formation of harmful free radicals.
