Additional Ascorderm Products Information
The word ascorbic literally means "anti-scurvy," because it prevents that terrible condition. While few people have to worry about scurvy, the name does show how very important vitamin C is to health. By providing vitamin C (in the form of L-ascorbic acid) and other botanical extracts, the formulas of Ascorderm Products help to keep skin firm, smooth, healthy and radiant.
The first step in a careful skin care program is a thorough, gentle cleansing. Not only does Ascorderm Refining Cleanser carefully remove the excess oils, dead skin cells and contaminants, but provides the healing and protective benefits of L-ascorbic acid, immediately jump-starting the collagen-building and antioxidant therapy.
Used after cleansing, the powerful 15% concentration of L-ascorbic acid in oil-free Ascorderm Contouring Serum Plus, supported by antioxidant green tea leaf extract, promotes collagen formation while protecting the skin against damage from free radicals.
For an added boost of antioxidant protection, Ascorderm Contouring Serum XCP also contains a 2% concentration of phytic acid, plus 10% L-ascorbic acid and green tea leaf extract. The formula of Ascorderm Restore Moisturizing Lotion strengthens and heals the skin in several ways. In addition to L-ascorbic acid, it includes ascorbyl palitate, a fat-soluble form of vitamin C. Caprylic/capric triglyceride, derived from coconut oil, is not only an excellent emollient but provides a barrier on the surface of the skin to help prevent moisture loss. A boost of hyaluronic acid, naturally found in the skin, actually attracts and binds water to the skin, resulting in a smoother, softer skin and decreased appearance of wrinkles.
