Alternative to Vitamin c skincare products in plastic packaging.
Topical - C is a powdered vitamin c supplement for your face. Proven to boost collagen, fight sun damage, and firm skin, it dissolves + activates when mixed with your existing moisturizer or face serum. Applied daily, skin appears brighter with less visible fine lines + wrinkles.
Why it works
Vitamin C is a volatile ingredient. It's hard to stabilize and maintain, which means most products toting its benefits aren't nearly as effective as they could be. Somewhere between manufacturing and hitting shelves, the formulas lose their potency. Topical – C is different. This powdered form of vitamin C doesn't activate until you tell it to.
l-ascorbic acid—aka pure vitamin C— is mixed with a plant-based antioxidant called ferulic acid. Both are proven to stimulate collagen production and fight sun damage. The powder also includes tapioca starch derived from the roots of cassava plants, colloidal oatmeal, and aloe vera to exfoliate, soothe + heal the skin.
Goes Great With:
Tapioca Starch, L-Ascorbic Acid, Ferulic Acid, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour, Aloe Vera
Free from fillers + bulking agents. Vegan.
Use in just in the morning, or both morning and night.
Dissolve 2-3 shakes in the palm of your hand with water or your favorite serum and apply it to your face, neck—and décolletage if you feel like it. With daily use, you can expect brighter skin + a visible reduction in fine lines, scarring, and pigmentation.
To avoid redness, don't use it at the same time as glycolic, salicylic acid or retinol-containing products.
