Furthermore, our exclusive clinical strength vitamin c serum is a scientific formula that has proven results with l-ascorbic acid increasing collagen synthesis, and the importance of collagen for skin health is paramount. Collagen fibers give the skin resistance to strain and traction. Collagen constitutes about 70% of skin mass, but total collagen decreases about 1% per year. This may look like a small decline, but in such a major component of the skin, it will affect skin volume and its physical properties. Also, aging changes collagen structure: what was an organized pattern in young skin, in older skin can turn into thick fibrils arranged in disorganized bundles. It is not “only” quantity, then, it is also quality that matters. We know that aging decreases skin thickness and elasticity, and it is likely that collagen is a good part of the reason. If we care about slowing down and reversing skin aging, we should care about collagen too. The effects of ascorbic acid on the skin are probably related to its role as a co-factor in a number of enzymatic reactions. At the biochemical level, l-ascorbic acid promotes synthesis of new collagen, promotes expression of type 1 and type 4 collagen and ascorbic acid transporters, and inhibits the activity of matrix metalloproteinases (enzymes capable of breaking down collagen and elastin). Visually, the use of l-ascorbic acid improves wrinkles and decreases inflammation. L-ascorbic acid is important for plants and animals because it works as an antioxidant. More specifically, it is a water soluble antioxidant, and this means that it can work in almost all the reactions occurring in the cell. A daytime vitamin c serum that delivers advanced environmental protection and improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, and brightens skin's complexion the acidity of ascorbic acid (l) in our vitamin c serum will chemically exfoliate and promote skin rejuvenation. Promotes elasticity and collagen synthesis, reduces free radicals formed by the sun and helps eliminate the formation of dark spots.

The serum can be diluted with usage will depend on individual tolerance to the acidity of the serum. Test the serum on the inside of your arm first and rinse well if you feel any discomfort. The serum can be diluted with nutrient serum or keeping it calm in order to make it more suitable for sensitive skin.
We recommend applying a thin layer of serum to clean skin once or twice weekly. Vitamin c serum can be applied on the face, neck, or wherever your skin is in need of exfoliation and renewal, keeping away from the eyes. In order to make it more suitable for sensitive skin.
Our high concentration l-ascorbic acid serum is a great exfoliating options. Because over-exfoliation can cause inflammation and other problems, we recommend careful use of l-ascorbic acid serum. Usage once or twice a week is optimal for most skin types. For a vitamin c-serum to actually be a vitamin c-serum, the ascorbic acid derivative must be stable (so it is not oxidized before you apply it to your skin), and it must have vitamin c activity in vivo. This will require that the derivative is broken down in the skin to produce ascorbic acid and has to display antioxidant activity, melanin inhibition, protection from uv radiation, etc. According to this very common sense definition, some vitamin c-serums on the market are probably not c-serums.
