Why C? The Super Vitamin in Skincare

Why C?

Vitamin C is a well-known super antioxidant that can transform your skin in many amazing ways…

Everyone has long been exposed to the hype of using Vitamin C in serums, eye creams, moisturizers, cleansers, scrubs, and basically everything in life. How do you know what kind of Vitamin C is being used, at what percent, and is it beneficial?

Let’s start with the basic science of Vitamin C in skincare. There are oil-based formulas, and water-based formulas. The oil-based absorb deeper in the skin, and have a stronger effect on the skin. It is usually in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid. This formula yields great results with Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, and many forms of skin discoloration. The issue reported with this form is that is can be very irritating, especially for those with sensitive skin. The water-based alternative is reviewed to be gentler and not cause irritation, although it does not penetrate the skin at as deep a level as the oil-based, and may take much longer to produce results in discoloration. A common water-based Vitamin C used in skincare is Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, (MAP). It has been proven to calm inflammation and redness in skin, while hydrating by acting as a humectant in the skin, aka retaining water in the cells.

Many brands on the market choose one or the other, leaving people to sacrifice potency for calmness. So, you may ask, why can’t we have both? Now you can. Skin at Peace has researched medical journals and studies, to be able to combine the most potent Vitamin C strands available that will provide maximum results for discoloration and improve sensitive skin types. By combining both L-Ascorbic Acid, and MAP, at an amount of 15-20 percent, along with Ferulic Acid for stabilization and permeability, you have a superior, and highly effective powerhouse.

Complementing this formula for added hydration, Skin at Peace also included Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, and Vitamin B3 Niacinamide. You can now receive all the antioxidants, anti-inflammatory ingredients, and potent hydration in one airless pump bottle.
