The superpowers of Pure Vitamin C

Pure Vitamin C is a super star multipotent active. It has a whole host of benefits from reducing hyperpigmentation (caused by sun damage, age & acne marks), to boosting collagen production and brightening skin tone. With antioxidant properties, Pure Vitamin C neutralises free radicals to protect the skin from external stressors (UV & pollution) that accelerate ageing and reduce radiance. Pure Vitamin C is naturally present in skin, but its concentration decreases with age. This is why a daily topical supply of Pure Vitamin C can be beneficial for your skin health – more on that later.
The bottom-line? It’s a science-backed, dermatologist-preferred ingredient often prescribed for early skin ageing signs.

Pure Vitamin C to fight early signs of aging

From your 20s onwards, oxidative stress caused by UV rays – and exacerbated by fast-paced lifestyles – can alter the skin’s natural barrier function leading to dull, uneven skin and dark spots. This is heightened by pollution, which also increases sebum production – meaning a more uneven texture and visible pores. At the same time, the skin’s cell turnover naturally slows with age. Dead cells accumulate making the skin drier and rougher, and triggering the first fine lines.
The good news?
As a powerful antioxidant that fights free radical damage caused oxidative stress, Pure Vitamin C has been proven to act on, and even prevent, early signs of aging including uneven skin tone, visible pores and fine lines. Formulated with derm-grade Pure Vitamin C at 12%, the Revitalift Clinical Pure Vitamin C Serum leaves the skin 2X BRIGHTER + 3X SMOOTHER in just 4 weeks *.

What is L-Ascobic Acid and why do dermatologists recommend it?

When it comes to skincare, not all types of Vitamin C are equal. L-Ascorbic Acid (Pure Vitamin C) is the purest active form of Vitamin C and the only one that is biologically active with clinically proven effectiveness for the skin. It’s the one most used and recommended by dermatologists. Vitamin C derivatives, such as Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Glyceryl Ascorbate and Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, have a much more limited impact.
