Vitamin C has been a very popular ingredient in skincare for a while now. Everyone rants and raves about how it can even out your skin tone, leaving it bright and glowing. But here’s the thing, there can be some serious consequences to using Vitamin C, if used the wrong way. The good news is that there is a natural alternative. In today’s blog I am going to be talking about these consequences and what you can use instead.
The majority of Vitamin C products on the shelf today use Synthetic Vitamin C, this is made in a lab. The problem with this form of Vitamin C is that it can be very potent and irritating to sensitive skin and when used long-term, it can cause even more sensitivities.
The most concerning thing about synthetic Vitamin C, is that it oxidizes quickly, especially when exposed to light and oxygen. This leads to the product being unstable, ineffective, and can even cause permanent cell damage!
I don’t know about you, but the consequences are just not worth to it to me! Luckily, we have found a natural alternative.
Natural forms of Vitamin C can actually be found in fruit extracts, using fruits like Strawberry, Kiwi, and Bilberry! With these ingredients you can fade hyperpigmentation naturally, even out skin tone, improve skin redness, and achieve a bright luminous glow!
These ingredients are not only effective, but provide long lasting results.
Natural vitamin C is also gentle enough to be a sustainable part of your daily skincare routine.
Our Brightening Fruit Essence uses these ingredients in a lightweight water gel.
An essence is a great alternative to a toner, because toners typically dry out your skin leaving a matte finish. An Essence will replenish your skin with hydration and give you a juicy glow throughout the day!
The next time you are reaching for a product containing Vitamin C, remember what repercussions Synthetic Vitamin C has, and make sure that what you are using is sourced from natural, real fruit extracts.
