Active Spotlight: Vitamin C, Power Antioxidant

Every day your skin is exposed to environmental factors like pollution, UV light, and blue light that can stress skin and accelerate aging.

An antioxidant serum is part of your first line of defense because it helps counteract the effects of environmental stressors. As an added benefit, antioxidants like vitamin C also help to fight fine lines and dullness, and improves skin bounce.

Incorporating a good antioxidant serum into your daily routine is key to a smooth, even, firm, and glowing complexion. (We recommend boosting your skin protection by always wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen!) 

We formulated our antioxidant serum with tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, a form of vitamin C that we think has the best balance of stability and efficacy. Plus we added other antioxidants such as ferulic acid, which helps stabilize vitamin C. 

Some products contain ascorbic acid, a form of vitamin C that is notoriously unstable. The molecule degrades when it’s exposed to light or heat, meaning it can go bad in the bottle before it ever reaches your skin.

All our serums come in airless containers so that the formula remains stable and potent. We also recommend storing products in a cool, dark place away from light and heat.
