Our Dual C+ Skin Brightening Serum is formulated with three different forms of Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP), and Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. This anti-aging, skin brightening serum illuminates your skin tone, reduces the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, and nurtures your skin with a refreshed glow. Additionally, this powerful skin brightening serum shields your skin from free radicals that damage cells and cause aging, acting to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that when used topically, can help to prevent damage to your skin cells from multiple external factors such as UV damage and exposure to air pollution. Vitamin C is often used in skin brightening serums because its properties aid skin cells in their natural regeneration process to repair damaged skin cells.
With vitamin C, you are not just keeping your skin from aging. Below we list the three main benefits of incorporating Vitamin C into your skin routine:
The reason we formulated our Skin Brightening Serum with Vitamin C is because of its well-known purpose to brighten the skin. Ascorbic acid prevents the biochemical reactions in the skin that cause hyperpigmentation and uneven pigmentation. Reducing these processes helps to smooth skin unevenness and keep your skin glowing.
Dual C+ is also used to prevent skin aging. In addition to skin brightening, Vitamin C renews the skin’s surface and helps to increase the production of substances that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, keeping the skin looking firm and tight.
Antioxidants like Vitamin C are adept at penetrating the skin’s barrier and fighting against free radicals, which are highly reactive and unstable molecules that can damage cells and have been linked to many diseases and aging. By reducing free radicals, you are also preventing your skin from precancerous changes caused by UV exposure. With Vitamin C in your skin serum, it’s a win-win!
Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is a form of Vitamin C and is the main ingredient in our Dual C+ Skin Brightening Serum. The problem that occurs with most topical forms of Vitamin C is that they’re water-soluble and can’t make it through the lipid-rich barrier to reach the dermis. Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, on the other hand, can successfully penetrate the surface of the skin and move to the layer underneath called the dermis. It’s here that collagen, a protein that gives skin its youthful firmness and ability to prevent wrinkles, is made.
Hyperpigmentation is known as uneven skin tone or dark spots, which can often be caused by the overproduction of melanin. A key feature of Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is that it blocks the tyrosinase, the primary enzyme responsible for creating melanin in the skin. Inhibiting its action prevents melanin production before it even begins - which helps to brighten areas of pigmentation substantially.
Our product, Dual C+ Skin Brightening Serum, gets its name from the carefully selected forms of Vitamin C that we combine in our product, which work together to achieve a skin serum that helps to fight the effects of anti-aging and brighten the complexion of the skin.
