We use a unique vitamin C that is shown to be the most stable, gentle, and bioavailable form and does not take away from or react poorly with other ingredients, as do commonly used forms of ascorbic acid. This serum does many jobs, including boosting natural collagen production, detoxifying and protecting skin from UV rays and pollution, brightening, and hydrating.
While it may seem appealing to have highly concentrated products, formulas with more than 20% L-ascorbic acid can irritate the skin. Most dermatological studies have found that a range between 8-20% produces the best results with limited irritation. A study conducted by Duke University Medical Center found that the concentrations of L-ascorbic acid above 20% do not have increased skin benefits. The study determined that, conversely, higher levels can negatively impact the skin’s condition.
Glycerin absorbs at the skin’s surface and boosts your skin’s hydration. Glycerin easily penetrates and gets absorbed into the skin without clogging pores while also making it easier for the skin to absorb other active, skin health-enhancing ingredients in products. By filling fine lines and miniscule cracks on the skin and by facilitating the regeneration of new skin, glycerin smooths out the complexion for a rejuvenated appearance. Furthermore, it evens out the skin tone to lighten darker areas, thereby diminishing the appearance of unwanted spots and marks. A perfect companion to a vitamin C serum.
Directions: Shake before each use. Apply to fingers or cotton ball and massage onto face, neck, and décolleté after cleansing. Avoid contact with eyes. Do not ingest. Always perform a patch test. Store in a cool, dark place. Best if used within 2-3 months.

Christian, wife, stay-at-home mom, entrepreneur. I have been making my own organic, holistic products for about 15 years for all of my family’s bath & body and other skincare needs. We have never purchased a store-bought product since then! In 2022, I began selling my items and have seen great success and we are thrilled to be able to share these uniquely organic products with others. Aside from running the business, we enjoy studying theology and languages, music, homesteading, and raising our little darlings.
