Is it really ascorbic acid in your vitamin C product? It’s an important question because not all vitamin C serums contain the real deal (look closely at the packaging). Lamelle’s new Correctives Vita-C 30 is made with pure ascorbic acid vitamin C at a concentration of 30%.
Here’s what you need to know.
WHAT’S REALLY INSIDE YOUR VITAMIN C PRODUCT
Vitamin C is one of the best-researched ingredients. Science has shown that ascorbic acid offers powerful antioxidant protection while promoting new collagen growth. It also inhibits melanin production, for brighter and more even-toned skin. And it even increases hydration to make skin smoother.
By all accounts, it’s one of the most important nutrients for the skin. But here’s the kicker: Many products marketed as vitamin C today are not made with actual ascorbic acid. Using derivative forms is very common: Ascorbyl Glucoside, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate.
And they’re all sold as “vitamin C”. But there are a few very good reasons why a derivative is not the same thing as ascorbic acid vitamin C.
WHY DERIVATIVES DON’T WORK
First, all the research was done on L-Ascorbic Acid. And there’s proof that a derivative or ester form offers the same kind of skin benefits.
Second, those who use derivatives claim that they convert back to ascorbic acid on contact with the skin. But again there’s no evidence to support that claim. Basically, it’s worthwhile checking the packaging of your vitamin c product.
That’s where Lamelle’s all-new Correctives Vita-C 30 product comes in.
THE REAL DEAL: NEW CORRECTIVES VITA-C 30
Lamelle has launched a new and exciting product made with real L-ascorbic acid in a stable silicone suspension. This dissipates on contact to deliver ascorbic acid vitamin C directly to the skin. Introducing new Lamelle Correctives Vita-C 30.
30%: A HIGHER CONCENTRATION THAN EVER
You might have experienced Lamelle’s advanced pure ascorbic acid vitamin c delivery before. The Correctives Recharge CE product is also being updated to a 20% concentration. But new Correctives Vita-C 30 contains 30% ascorbic acid.
The concentration is so high the formula actually feels grainy to the touch. That’s because ascorbic acid naturally has a rough texture. But the granules melt almost instantly, as soon as you apply it to your skin.
And Lamelle delivers it in this high concentration because ascorbic acid has some amazing skin-health benefits.
SKIN BENEFITS OF LAMELLE’S NEW CORRECTIVES VITA-C 30
Powerful antioxidant protection
It finds and neutralises free radicals and oxidants, protecting cells membranes and improving the skin’s resistance to UV and sun exposure.
Reduced signs of ageing
It boosts fibroblasts to promote new collagen growth, stopping wrinkles from forming and stemming photo-ageing. It also supports the skin barrier by soothing inflammation and promoting better skin healing.
Optimises specialisation of keratinocytes and barrier lipids in the outer layer of the epidermis. This strengthens the skin barrier and improves skin texture for smoother skin.
Healthy skin hydration
Enhances the production of barrier lipids to assist in the formation and health of the stratum corneum. This increases the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
Brighter skin, enhanced glow
Inhibits the formation of melanin to brighten highly pigmented skin. While simultaneously stabilising melanin production in skin that’s deficient of melanin. The result is both brightening and enhancing skin tone and glow.
SAFE, EFFECTIVE ASCORBIC ACID VITAMIN C
It’s important to speak to a professional about Lamelle Vita-C 30. Because it’s such a high concentration product, it’s best to have some expert guidance to help you use it safely.
For example, you’ll have to be sure that your skin tolerates ascorbic acid. It’s best to complete at least one treatment cycle of 20% ascorbic acid Recharge CE before stepping up to Vita-C 30.
