Continued daily use promotes skin’s self-repair and boosts collagen production for plumper, more youthful looking skin. This non-stinging formula provides a continuous reservoir of Vitamin C that lasts up to 72 hours for long-lasting protection from damaging UV rays. Use with Perfectly Spotless Serum for optimal skin brightening. Free of parabens, artificial fragrance and colorants, phthalates, and formaldehyde releasing preservatives.
Most Vitamin C serums contain L-ascorbic acid, which tends to break down in heat, light and oxygen — hence why most Vitamin C serums turns dark yellow or brown after only a short while. L-ascorbic acid also requires an extremely low pH, which is why many Vitamin C serums tend to sting and irritate. Best Defense Serum utilizes only highly stable forms of Vitamin C that will not break down over time. Moreover, because Best Defense Serum does not require a low pH, it is completely non-irritating and actually serves as an anti-inflammatory.
Ascorbyl Glucoside: Long lasting, highly stable and non-irritating form of Vitamin C. Converts to L-ascorbic acid once it penetrates the skin to deliver a continuous supply of antioxidant protection and increased collagen synthesis for firmer-looking skin. Particularly effective in decreasing melanin by inhibiting tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for skin pigmentation, resulting in a brighter, more even skin tone.
Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate: Highly stable, quickly absorbing form of Vitamin C derived from the salt of L-ascorbic acid. Converts to L-ascorbic acid once it penetrates the skin to deliver a constant supply of antioxidant protection, increased collagen synthesis, and a decrease in melanin production for firmer-looking, more even toned skin.
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate: Highly stable, highly concentrated form of Vitamin C. Converts to L-ascorbic acid once it penetrates the skin to deliver antioxidant protection, increased collagen synthesis, and a decrease in melanin production for firmer-looking, more even toned skin.
Hyaluronic Acid: A major component of young, healthy skin, hyaluronic acid binds up to 1000 times its weight in moisture. Increases barrier function and collagen production in the skin, boosting elasticity and smoothing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
