CLAIM TO FAME: A pure formulation of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in a very fine powder format
FAST FACTS: Fine 325 mesh topical powder boosts radiance as it evens out skin tone and texture; visibly targets the appearance of discoloration, dullness, and signs of aging; formulated to be mixed with other treatments (except those containing niacinamide or EUK 134); vegan formula is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain water, alcohol, oil, silicone, and nut
PERFECT FOR: Use as an effective antioxidant to brighten your complexion

”Amazing fine texture! NO gritty feeling at all, can be mixed with all different kind of serums or creams. Most favorite one is with Resveratol and Ferulic Serum mixed together with NMF Cream…followed by Hydration Vaccine (Yes, I know the labels say HV should come BEFORE the cream but I never understood how a treatment that is supposed to seal in moisture with advanced silicone technology should be UNDER the cream). Since my skin is already used to Vitamin C no stinging at all. I even use it on my hand now with amazing results as well. Highly recommended.”

NET WEIGHT: 20g
INGREDIENTS: Ascorbic Acid

Mix a small amount with other treatments in the palm of your hand and apply to face in the AM or the PM. A tingling sensation can be expected after application. Do not mix with formulations containing Niacinamide or EUK 134.
If topical Vitamin C is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with EUK 134 or Niacinamide (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and EUK 134/Niacinamide in the AM). Otherwise, EUK 134/Niacinamide can affect the integrity of pure-form Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid).
The format of this formula is a suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder and, as such, provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of Vitamin C topically. With such format, a very strong tingling but non-irritating sensation is expected during the first 1-2 weeks of use until the skin’s tolerance to such high exposure is elevated.
