CLAIM TO FAME: A high-strength oil-solubilized vitamin C derivative in vitamin F
FAST FACTS: Contains an oil-soluble derivative of vitamin C, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate that can be used in higher concentrations without drawbacks; considered one of the most stable derivatives of Vitamin C but, being a derivative, its potency will not be directly comparable to pure L-Ascorbic Acid; oil-format formula comes in combination with vitamin F, also known as essential fatty acids; works to brighten the skin tone and reduces signs of aging; vegan formula is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain water, alcohol, silicone, nut, gluten, and soy
PERFECT FOR: Dry, dull, aging skin

”I’ve tried a fair few vitamin C serums and I stopped searching after using this one. This is the first one that seems to work well under makeup. I don’t experience pilling and it absorbs well into my skin. This is definitely one my staples. Would recommend to one and all.”
