The first thing I wanted to know was what is Vitamin C serum and how does it help? Let’s see what I found:
I found this HERE: (Livestrong)
Topical vitamin C, also referred to as L-ascorbic acid, is a topical antioxidant that has been shown to increase collagen production, smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even skin discoloration, according to Skin & Aging magazine. The most important thing to look for when choosing skin serums containing vitamin C is the concentration. The serum must contain at least a 10 to 15 percent concentration of vitamin C to be deemed effective, according to Skin Care Guide
Since this product is 20% we are good to go.
Vitamin C is an unstable compound, and when exposed to air it becomes ineffective and potentially harmful, because it may increase the production of free radicals, according to Smart Skincare. Skin care companies have introduced stabilized forms of vitamin C, but these serums can be costly.
Stabilized vitamin C serums with at least 10 percent concentration typically range from $15 for a drugstore serum, to $50 and upwards of $200 for high-end department and specialty store serums. As a rule of thumb, the higher the concentration of vitamin C and stabilization typically increase the price of a vitamin C serum.
I found some more information HERE:
Potentially, vitamin C can benefit skin in two important ways. Firstly, vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen, a key structural protein of the skin. Adding vitamin C to a culture of skin cells (fibroblasts) dramatically increases the synthesis of collagen. Secondly, vitamin C is an antioxidant and can help reduce skin damage caused by free radicals. So, when vitamin C is properly delivered into skin cells, there is a good chance to reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture.
keep in mind that taking large amounts of vitamin C (or its derivatives) orally is of little benefit for reducing wrinkles because you cannot obtain high enough concentration of vitamin C in the skin to increase collagen production.
Now that I have done my research I know the product is safe and can be effective!
After using the Life Essentials Skin Care-Vitamin C Serum it has helped to fade some of my many sunspots. I believe it has helped with my wrinkles also. My face seems to be glowing and really soft. I have acne once in a while, since using this product I have not had any. My wrinkles seem to be less than before using this serum.
This was easy to put on my face and let it dry. Then I put on my moisturizer daily. It was not oily, greasy, sticky, just easy to put on.
I was very happy with this Vitamin C Serum. I have tried other products with the Vit C and they just did not seem to work as well as this serum worked. Lots of freckles and starting to get age spots, this really seem to lighten them. The skin on my face looks healthier than I can remember. I highly recommend giving this product a try because I was surprised at how much it helped my face. My scars from my acne when I was younger, seem to be getting less noticable. With this being organic and made in the us is a big plus for me.
