Vitamin C Cream from scratch 🍋🍯20% L-Ascorbic Acid is a key component to many skin brightening regiments, as it interferes with pigment production. Vitamin C performs a variety of functions with the skin, including stimulating new collagen, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, protecting the skin from environmental pollutants with its antioxidant properties, helping reduce visible discoloration on the skin and providing enhanced protection against UV exposure. We formulate our Vitamin C cream with Vitamin E, and now we added Grapefruit Essential Oil!
Vitamin C should be formulated with pure Vitamin E for optimal benefits, stay away from products with Ascorbyl Palmitate which is an ester of Vitamin C, but doesn’t offer the unique benefits and potency that pure L- Ascorbic does. We recently added Therapeutic Grade Organic Grapefruit Essential Oil because it keeps the skin clean with its antiviral and antimicrobial properties, and like the fruit itself the Essential Oil of Grapefruit is rich in Antioxidants!
