Pure L-ascorbic acid (antioxidant & brightening) with essential antioxidant crystals.
Vit-C Plus crystals contain the highest pharmaceutical grade of pure Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid crystals) combined with the innovative skin lightening agent, kojic acid.
L-ascorbic acid is unstable as a water-based serum or cream and will have a short period of effectiveness. But when using the pure L-ascorbic acid crystals in a powder form, the Vitamin C is activated only when a liquid component is added, this way the ingredient is always active for maximum activity on the target cells.
Benefits of pure L-ascorbic acid include:
- Promotes collagen production
- Enhances tissue repair
- Antioxidant protects the skin from harmful UV damage
- Potent anti-inflammatory
- Possesses a skin lightening effect by suppressing excess melanin production
Benefits of kojic acid:
- Reduces the appearance of sun damage and pigmentation
- Powerful antioxidant
- Antimicrobial agent
- Powerful skin lightener
Use in the morning for daily antioxidant protection. Tap a small amount (size of a matchstick head) of Vit-C Plus Crystals into the palm and dissolve at a dosage ratio of approximately 1:4 parts crystals (20% vitamin C) to water.
Alternatively, use it as a booster by adding it directly to your Synergie Skin serums for targeted results:
(Use the same ratio as with water)
HydroGel – oily, acneic skin
SuperSerum+ – ageing skin and fine lines
Vanish – uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation
For more robust skin types only, Vit-C Plus Crystals may also be combined with Exfol-X as a weekly ‘mini-peel’ to combat congestion, uneven skin tone, and sun damage. Do not combine with A+ or Priority B serums.
If you have a known sensitivity to acidic products, introduce Vit-C Plus Crystals into your routine at a lower dosage over 2-3 weeks to allow the skin to acclimatise.
