Skinceuticals Vitamin C Antioxidant Serums

 

 

World renowned Skinceuticals Vitamin C serums are a force to be reckoned with. Backed with years of scientific research, the combination of high concentration antioxidants designed to be silky smooth and stable, are making headlines throughout the skincare industry to protect and transform skin globally.

Vitamin C helps to keep our skin cells healthy by shielding the skin from harmful aggressors such as pollution and UV exposure that can lead to free radical damage. It can be found naturally in fruits and vegetables or synthetically manufactured.

Patented Formula

Skinceuticals uses l-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) in all their vitamin C antioxidant serum formulations.
