Stratia Vitamin C+C Serum
C+C Serum is a 15% Vitamin C Serum Featuring Three Powerful Antioxidants to Help Brighten, Smooth, and Firm Your Skin
How it Works:
Vitamin C is one of the most powerful skincare ingredients you can get without a prescription. And can increase collagen production, scavenge and neutralize free radicals, and fade hyperpigmentation
However, the form of vitamin C that’s easiest for your skin to use - L-ascorbic acid - is also extremely unstable, degrading in a matter of weeks when exposed to water, heat, or light. That’s why most vitamin C serums turn orange and need to be replaced.
C+C Serum uses 10% L-ascorbic acid, but rather than introducing elements that cause it to degrade, we’ve suspended it in a lightweight silicone formula away from water, heat, and light. That means it’s stable on your shelf for a full year. We also added 5% ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, an oil-soluble form of vitamin C, which complements L-ascorbic acid’s water solubility.
To up the ante, we added another incredibly powerful antioxidant, Coenzyme Q10 (otherwise known as ubiquinone) to make sure no free radical is left un-scavenged. Bisabolol, a key element of chamomile, helps soothe and calm skin.
Put it all together and you’re left with an incredibly potent yet non-irritating antioxidant serum to help brighten, smooth, and firm your skin.
C+C Serum does not have a pH because it’s an anhydrous (water-free) product.
Like all Stratia products, C+C Serum is unscented, gimmick-free, and formulated based on hard science.
