What Can Vitamin C Do For Your Skin?
- Increase the synthesis of collagen, which leads to thicker skin. Thicker skin retains more moisture, helping to prevent dryness and diminish the appearance of wrinkles
- Provides antioxidant activity, which fights against free radicals that can damage skin. Free radicals are caused by pollution, the sun and cigarette smoke
- Fade skin discolorations
- Improve the appearance of sun damaged skin
- Fight against tumor formation and help to slow down the development of skin cancers
Why Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP)? Studies have shown that SAP is effective at treating acne vulgaris through a combination of its antimicrobial effect on acne-causing bacteria as well as calming the inflammation associated with acne. Sodium ascorbyl phosphate tends to be much better tolerated than other forms of Vitamin C so this serum is especially suitable if you have sensitive skin although Apothekari Super C Serum may be used by all skin types.
Apothekari Super C Serum is formulated with an organic herbal infusion that contains additional organic ingredients including aloe leaf and jojoba oil. It has high concentrations of sodium ascorbyl phosphate and botanical hyaluronic acid.
