Key Features and Ingredients To Know About
- Two Forms of Vitamin C - For treating you to all the glow-boosting, breakout-busting, and healthy aging benefits, we’ve combined not just one but two different kinds of C for maximum efficacy. Ascorbic Acid is water-soluble and known to be one of the most potent forms for penetrating the skin, while Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is a highly stable oil-soluble form that complements Ascorbic Acid perfectly.
Ferulic Acid - Ferulic is another amazing antioxidant compound that enhances the results from Vitamin C. It can help to promote a more even skin tone, by calming redness and reducing the appearance of fine lines.
Shea Butter - One of the best for soothing and moisturizing the skin, shea is known to be anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and intensely replenishing, making it a super ingredient for dry, depleted, or dull skin.
Vitamin E - Also known as tocopherol, Vitamin E is an important nutrient in skincare. It works especially well alongside Vitamin C, because while C works to provide protection against free radical damage, E can help with repair processes in the event that any damage occurs.
- Botanical Oils - A nutrient-rich trio of Tamanu Seed Oil, Grape Seed Oil, and Jojoba Oil boost the glow factor in this formula. All three are richly nourishing, and wonderful for balancing, brightening, and bolstering the skin.
Our Top Tips for Best Results with AM Vitamin C Serum
Tip #1: Apply to clean, dry skin - Vitamin C works best when applied to skin that’s been freshly prepped with a good cleanse and your favorite toner, so complete these steps first!
Tip #2: Use it every day in the A.M. - Consistency is another key aspect of seeing results from C, so once per day works best. We recommend using it first thing in the morning.
Tip #3: Pair with moisturizer and SPF - For added protection, your last step should be a hydrating moisturizer and sun protection. This combination also layers great with makeup for a luminous finish.
