C+ is the ultimate innovation in urban skincare
The most sought-after treatments in my clinic are those that address ageing. Therefore, I devote constant attention to understanding how to confront the myriad of aggressors that lead to visible lines, wrinkles, and skin dullness.
Free radicals are unstable molecules that break down cells, causing wrinkles and increasing skin dryness. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that integrates into the structure of the skin harmoniously, aiding in the synthesis of Collagen and Elastin by slowing down the damage caused by free radicals.
Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is an incredibly stable form of Vitamin C that is more readily taken up by the skin cells than any other form, with 85% conversion to pure Ascorbic Acid in the dermis. Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid, both powerful antioxidants by themselves, work synergistically to further stabilise the Ethyl Ascorbic Acid and create a highly potent, long-lasting formula.
A lot of research went into the formulation of C+ and I have been really pleased with the results in my clients’ skin. By seeking out ingredients with the most advanced regenerative properties that also enhance the delivery and stability of Vitamin C, we have created a treatment that keeps skin tight, clear, and youthful.
Tip: If you use DNA or A+ Complex, alternate these at night and use C+ in the morning.
15% L-Ascorbic Acid: The purest form of easily-absorbed Vitamin C, it provides exceptional antioxidant protection whilst stimulating collagen production, for a radiant and youthful complexion. By replenishing it topically, its regenerative and reparative effects are restored and protection against oxidative stress is increased.
Totora Extract: A powerhouse antioxidant Totora has important regenerative and reparative effects, restoring and protecting against oxidative stress, whilst improving elasticity and firmness in the skin.
Ferulic Acid: Referred to as the “master” antioxidant, it stabilises Ethyl-Ascorbic Acid within a formula, boosting the utilisation of antioxidants, inhibiting the formation of harmful free radicals.
Vitamin E: Found naturally in the skin it accumulates at the base of our hair follicles, activating the metabolism of natural lipids to the surface of the skin in the form of sebum, making it excellent for dry, mature skin. Its primary function is to protect against free radicals and UV damage. It’s especially potent when paired with its antioxidant partner, vitamin C.
