Once Vit C is exposed to the air and light it undergoes a breakdown or destruction of the very molecules are to help your skin. Ascorbic acid is the form of vitamin C found naturally in food. It is easily assimilated by the skin because of its bioavailability.
Vit C is a water-soluble antioxidant abundant in the young skin. This wonder molecule gets depleted due to a natural aging process and sun overexposure leading to skin looking and feeling less firm and not-so-radiant.
Luckily, there are topical skin care solutions that can help mitigate this damage, especially when a perfect trio of ascorbic acid/gold/glutathione envelopes the much needed molecules. The result: Skin looks and feels healthier and younger longer.
Ascorbic Acid, Gold, Glutathione: Ascorbic acid complex designed to keep ascorbic acid 100% stable over time and increases the penetration of vitamin C into skin. By conjugating ascorbic acid to gold, its bioavailability drastically increases and glutathione (a vitamin C precursor) helps to replenish ascorbic acid as it breaks down.
Gold (Acetyl Heptapeptide-9, Gold): Collagen boosting peptide for an anti-wrinkle effect. The peptide is bound to gold to extend the bioactivity of the peptide from 30 minutes to 36 hours.
Terminalia Ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum) Fruit Extract – Extract from Kakadu plum, which contains the world’s highest source of Vitamin C. Studies on this active have shown that it also stimulates the transport of Vitamin C into the skin and boosts collagen synthesis.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate: Oil soluble, extremely stable derivative of Vitamin C
Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract – collagen boosting marine bioferment to improve hydration, and barrier function, protect skin from blue light pollution, and provide skin with a natural glow.
