Quintessence Skin Science Serum C 1oz
QUINTESSENCE SERUM C - ANTIOXIDANT & FIRMING DROPS is a light topical serum containing Vitamin C (12%) & Cucumber Extract (28.1%). Both ingredients work in synergy to improve skin tone and elasticity & reduce the appearance of pores. SERUM C was developed utilizing a special, patent pending, process that reduces the water content, thus minimizing oxidation and degradation of the formula. This process provides for the maximum potency and effectiveness of the topical Vitamin C utilized in the formulation, the most effective form available today, pure L-ascorbic Acid.
RESULTS BACKED BY SCIENCE:
Our skin is exposed on a daily basis to environmental assaults from many sources such as the UV radiation from sunlight as well as from manmade light sources, cigarette smoke and air pollution, all of which cause oxy radicals to form in the skin. These oxy radicals attack the skin's collagen layer and break it down, causing lines and wrinkles to appear, the process commonly referred to as photo-aging.
Clinical studies show that topical application of certain antioxidants, such as Vitamin C in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid can help prevent photo-aging in skin and provides many other essential benefits to the skin such as:
Help protect against UV Light radiation induced free radical damage
Stimulates collagen production improving skin tone and elasticity.
Helps control inflammation.
Promotes wound healing.
Reduces erythema (redness).
Helps Protect against UV Light induced immunosupression
However, not all Vitamin C formulations can produce these benefits. Studies show that only very specific formulations are most effective:
Pure L-ascorbic Acid is the only form of Vitamin C that can be utilized by the body. Unlike the commonly used Vitamin C derivatives such as, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, etc. (which are used in many other products for their stability), but which studies show are not absorbed by the skin.
L-Ascorbic Acid is only absorbed by the skin in formulations with an acidic pH.
Optimum results and absorption are obtained at approximately a 10% concentration of L-Ascorbic Acid
L-Ascorbic Acid is highly unstable in its normal state and specialized technology is required to stabilize its formulation.
Serum C meets all of these criteria and offers real benefits to the skin, unlike almost all of its competitor products, which do not.
Remember, the benefits of Serum C should not be limited to just the face. It is especially recommended that a few drops of Serum C be applied directly to those areas of the body exposed to Ultraviolet light, such as the neck, & upper chest areas and the hands and arms, prior to applying your daily sunscreen, in order to help combat sunlight induced photo-aging. Serum C should also be applied to the entire body by mixing several drops with your favorite body lotion.

I remember my Mom always used cucumber on her eyes to reduce dark circles and puffiness. I never really understood why until I got older but I prefer to use nature in a bottle. I use the Quintessence Skin Science Serum which has helped me with my dark circles and puffiness as well as improved the overall look of my skin. It has a really pleasant scent I love how soft my skin feels. I bought my Mom one for her birthday and she loves it too!!
