No skincare routine is complete without Vitamin C (in our humble opinion).
Why is it a staple? Antioxidant Vitamin C protects skin from environmental aggressors, brightens the complexion, and is essential in collagen production. What’s better than vitamin C? A multifaceted antioxidant cocktail, we say. C-Shield is your skin’s daily multivitamin to keep it looking plump, radiant, and youthful.
This powerful, brick-toned serum contains 13% Vitamin C in stable and bioavailable forms: 10% sodium ascorbyl phosphate (SAP) + 3% ascorbyl glucoside. With this formula, there’s no risk of oxidation or harsh acidic pH level like traditional L-Ascorbic Acid treatments. Because it’s so gentle and non-irritating, it’s great for sensitive skin. Moreover, SAP has been shown to benefit acne prone skin by effectively fighting breakouts.
We didn’t stop at Vitamin C. This lightweight serum is all-that-and-a-bag-of-chips when it comes to antioxidant protection. A potent source of proanthocyanidins (OPCs), white pine bark boosts Vitamin C‘s effectiveness, protects against UV damage, and improves skin elasticity. Green coffee seed has smoothing, firming, and regenerating qualities thanks to its high concentration of caffeine and polyphenol chlorogenic acid (CGA). We’ve topped off this formula with superoxide dismutase (SOD), a talented enzyme found in the body that neutralises damaging superoxide radicals and may reduce visible redness and irritation in the skin.
vitamins C + E + OPCs + CGA + SOD + caffeine = the ultimate antioxidant fusion.
But wait, there’s more! This baby hydrates like no other to cover all your bases in one fell swoop. A hefty dose of hyaluronic acid joins forces with comforting allantoin, barrier-boosting niacinamide and soothing panthenol for sustained moisture balance and a dewy, plump finish. Shield skin daily to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and correct visible signs of photodamage with C-Shield Antioxidant Serum.
