There are several forms of vitamin C, but none have been as extensively studied and proven as L-ascorbic acid. SkinCeuticals only uses this pure vitamin C, and strictly adheres to the Duke University patent parameters that have conclusively outlined the concentration and pH guidelines necessary for optimal product absorption.
SkinCeuticals also validates product performance by simulating real-life temperature and light conditions and performing extensive safety testing on human skin. This includes ensuring that at least 50% of test subjects have sensitive skin to ensure each formula can be well-tolerated by the widest range of skin types without unwanted side effects. Even more, these serums’ results are validated through independent professional and physician-led studies, as well as assessments from real patients.
The importance of ingredient synergy
Vitamin C may take center stage in SkinCeuticals’ antioxidant serums, but teamwork makes the dream work. Additional ingredients such as vitamin E and ferulic acid play crucial supporting roles, and when formulated properly, specific ingredients work synergistically to provide superior antioxidant protection and optimize stability. These unique combinations also allow SkinCeuticals to tailor their vitamin C serums for different skin types and concerns.
A SkinCeuticals serum for every skin type and concern
Antioxidant serums are an essential part of any skincare routine, and although they offer unparalleled environmental protection, they aren’t one-size-fits all. As the leading expert in vitamin C serums, SkinCeuticals has developed numerous formulas for specific skin types and concerns.
