This post is an introuction to the world of Vitamin C Serums, and many of the myths that Beauty and Cosmetic companies advertise to consumers:
Vitamin C means L'Ascorbic Acid. Bear this in mind. What we call 'Vitamin C' is in fact called L'Ascorbic Acid.
All other forms of Vitamin C Serums on the market are made of Vitamin C derivatives known as C esters, which are not Vitamin C itself.
Now a lot of companies claim that Vitamin C esters will convert to L'ascorbic Acid (LAA) when it is applied on the skin. This raises questions such as:
1. Is this true?
2. How much of esters (% of ) will be converted to L'ascorbic Acid (LAA)?
3. When and will this be with the same efficacy?
There is no assurance at all that all of the esters will be converted into L'ascorbic Acid with the same efficacy. Some are not delivered into the dermis in an adequate quantity, while others do not chemically convert to the biologically active form of Vitamin C which is L'Ascorbic Acid.
If the above is correct, why isn't everyone selling L'ascorbic Acid based Vitamin C?
Until now, it was impossible to sell real L'ascorbic Acid Vitamin C, due to L'ascorbic Acid being extremely unstable and easily oxidized. By the time it would be bottled and shipped, it would lose its efficacy.
This is no longer the case.
Recently there has been a scientific breakthrough that will finally allow consumers to purchase the real thing. Brooklyn Botany is presenting the most stable L'ascorbic Acid (LAA) serum in the world, with a shelf life of 12 months, using Triple C Technologies. The usual stability of L'ascorbic Acid Serum is 3 days (72 hours). However, utilizing Triple C technologies, we have succeeded to extend the stability to 12 months.
Dr Oz has described Vitamin C as one of the anti-agers that will "drop a decade from your face". He suggests to look for Vitamin C products that contain an active ingredient such as L'ascorbic Acid. Our Vitamin C Serum has L'Ascorbic Acid (10%) with Vitamin C derivatives like Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (3%) & Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (0.9%) that work in concert, to deliver the most effective results to date.
Oregon State University recommended topical ascorbic acid as a vital molecule for skin. Some studies have shown that vitamin C may help prevent and reduce ultraviolet (UV)-induced photodamage.
