A pH of 2.9 ensures the perfect conditions for absorption.

HOW TO APPLY
Apply 3-4 drops with fingertips over entire face avoiding the eye area. Some mild tingling/activity on the skin is normal whilst your skin is becoming accustomed to L-ascorbic acid.
Other treatments, serums, emulsions, creams and oils.
It is not adivsed to combine L Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) with certain actives including exfoliating acids and Retinol due to ingredient contraindications and potential skin intolerance. Please proceed with caution if applying alongside Niacinamide as some people may find this combination irritating to the skin. Please patch test first if deciding to combine these ingredients.
L-ascorbic acid has the most scientific research of any form of vitamin C when it comes to skin benefits. It is a potent antioxidant and skin-soothing ingredient that can improve the appearance of signs of ageing.
Ascorbic acid is also a powerhouse when mixed with other antioxidants (especially Ferulic + Vit E) or when used alone in higher concentrations (e.g.15%- 20%). The ingredients within this serum address dark spots, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, loss of firmness, and dullness. When used together, these potent antioxidants will help you achieve a radiant, smooth, even, younger-looking complexion.
