The ultimate Vitamin C serum for sensitive, sensitized, or breakout-prone skin / 1 oz
Kristina Holey + Marie Veronique C-Therapy Serum is the ultimate Vitamin C for sensitive and sensitized skins.
Vitamin C is one of those rare, gold-standard skincare ingredients that has stood the test of time: an excellent Vitamin C serum remains the best way to provide skin with antioxidant protection, prevent hyperpigmentation, and improve collagen synthesis in one go. Healthy skin truly needs vitamin C.
But here’s the issue: l-ascorbic acid, the only active form of Vitamin C, can be a little too hard-hitting for delicate complexions. And in the past, other forms of Vitamin C haven’t been able to come close to delivering the same results.
This is why we are so excited about this comprehensive, skin-problem-solving powerhouse of a C serum. It contains four Vitamin C derivatives, some of which are new, and all of which were specifically chosen to perform different tasks at different levels of the skin. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate clears pores of oxidized debris, helping with stubborn acne; Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate and Glyceryl Ascorbate limit hyperpigmentation; and Tetrahexyl Decyl Ascorbate goes into skin’s fibroblasts to boost collagen — think firm skin with fewer lines.
Added to that suite of C derivatives is a host of protective and soothing goodies ranging from additional antioxidants (ferulic acid, alpha-lipoic acid, and glutathione) to anti-inflammatories (turmeric and sodium salicylate). And all of this is whipped into a cushy base of green tea infusion, jojoba and broccoli seed oils, and plankton extract that feels absolutely fantastic on the skin.
C-Therapy is one of those beautiful products that demonstrates that those with sensitive, sensitized, and breakout-prone skin can not only have their cake and eat it, too, but also secretly delight in the fact that their cake might be better than anyone else's.*
This formula is free of essential oils, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, 1,4-dioxane, & synthetic fragrance. It is microbiome-friendly, gluten-free, and vegan.
*If you're not such a delicate flower, we have to say that Marie's new and improved Vitamins C+E+Ferulic Serum is even more hard-hitting and probably the better fit for you. But chin up, delicate flowers: once you've used this serum for a little while, you may be able to move up to C+E+Ferulic. You can always try a mini size of it just to be sure that switch makes sense for you.
