Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens skin tone and reduces the appearance of signs of aging. This water-free formula provides 30% pure L-Ascorbic Acid which remains completely stable due to the absence of water. Due to the presence of very light silicones, this formulation feels smooth on the skin despite the suspension format of the formulation, avoiding the short-lived gritty feeling of the original Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% formula. This treatment is ideally applied at bedtime.
There are 2 important things to consider:
1) 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.
2) The powder exposure to the skin disallows the formula to feel like a serum, lotion, or cream and each application requires a few seconds to feel absorbed by the skin. If desired, this formula can be diluted in a cream base per application to allow the skin to build tolerance over time.

HOW TO USE:
-Apply a small amount to face in the AM or the PM (PM preferred).
-A strong but non-irritating tingling sensation can be expected after application. If the sensation is too strong to tolerate, the formula can be mixed on each application with other creams or serums of your preference.
