Brighten and enhance skin tone whilst providing the most exposure of Vitamin C topically with The Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder, now available at Face the Future Advanced Skin Clinic and Online Shop.
Formulated using a very fine L-Ascorbic powder, this suspension offers a formula that visibly targets uneven skin tones, dullness and signs of ageing. This format provides the best and most continuous exposure of extremely high concentrations of Vitamin C topically.
Topical Vitamin C gives numerous benefits to the skin, as it is an effective antioxidant that brightens and elevates skin tone and reduces the appearance of ageing.
Due to its Vitamin C format, a highly strong tingling but non-irritant sensation can be expected during the first 1-2 weeks, until the skin’s tolerance of this strong exposure is elevated.
The powder exposure to the skin disallows the formula to feel like a serum, lotion or cream and each application requires a few seconds to feel absorbed by the skin. This product is formulated to mix with other treatments and can be diluted in a cream base per application to allow the skin to build tolerance over time but may feel gritty on the skin at first.
The Ordinary's portfolio of Vitamin C includes the following formulations:
- Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone
- Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%
- Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%
- Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F
- Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%
If topical Vitamin C is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with EUK 134 or Niacinamide (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and EUK 134/Niacinamide in the AM). Otherwise, EUK 134/Niacinamide can affect the integrity of pure-form Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid).
Free from water, alcohol, oil, silicone, nuts and gluten. This product is also vegan friendly and cruelty-free.
Benefits of 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder:
- Target the appearance of uneven skin tone and signs of ageing
- Provides direct exposure to high concentrations of Vitamin C topically
- Vegan friendly and cruelty-free.
How to use:
Mix a small amount with other treatments in the palm of your hand and apply to face in the AM or the PM. A tingling sensation can be expected after application. Do not mix with formulations containing Niacinamide or EUK 134.
