Vitamin C, are they all the same?

As common as it may sound, Vitamin C is widely available in the market. But, the only form of Vitamin C that can be recognized by the body is L-Ascorbic Acid. L-Ascorbic Acid is the purest form of Vitamin C that our skin can recognize. Other derivatives of Vitamin C, such as, ascorbyl palmitate and magnesium ascrorbyl phosphate, have to be converted into L-Ascorbic Acid before it can be absorbed by the skin. However, the amount converted may be too low for the skin to take an effect.

Achieving youthful skin with Vitamin C

Using L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) is one step closer to achieving youthful looking skin. L-Ascorbic Acid has the ability to improve the appearance of wrinkles, improve firmness, promote more even skin tone, improve skin texture and retain moisture in the skin. Enriched with potent antioxidants, L-Ascorbic Acid neutralizes free radicals from UV rays and external aggressors, reducing the signs of aging through the protection and reduction of harmful effects in the skin caused by UV rays. Furthermore, it also prevents the production of melanin, encouraging a more radiant and even skin tone.

In addition, L-Ascorbic Acid also helps restore collagen through the increase of collagen production and improvement in the quality of collagen produced.

Meeting the key factors for optimal results

There are 3 key factors that determine the results of a Vitamin C based product, and in VIVIER™, we have met all factors to ensure efficacy of product.

  1. Chemical Form – The only form of Vitamin C that can be used in the body is L-Ascorbic Acid. Other forms of Vitamin C, such as Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, are not recognized by the body and must be converted to L-Ascorbic Acid by the body in order to be beneficial.VIVIER™ patented Vitamin C serums contain only L-Ascorbic Acid USP. VIVIER™ Vitamin C serums are formulated using the highest grade of Vitamin C available called “USP”. “USP” stands for United States Pharmacopeia. It is the highest pharmaceutical standard recognized for quality, purity, strength and consistency. VIVIER™ patented Vitamin C serums are formulated using only L-Ascorbic Acid USP.
  2. Stability – When exposed to air, Vitamin C undergoes oxidation (the process which causes a sliced apple to turn brown). When oxidized, a Vitamin C formulation becomes an oxidant instead of an antioxidant, which is harmful to the skin. The formulation and grade of the Vitamin C in its raw form determine the rate at which the formulation will oxidize. The color of your Vitamin C serum will indicate its stability. VIVIER™ Vitamin C serums are clear to light yellow, which means they are stable. Orange to brown serums have oxidized and should not be used. VIVIER™ patented Vitamin C serums are specially formulated and patented to maximize the stability of the Vitamin C.
  3. Absorption – Vitamin C products in the market differ on how much Vitamin C is actually absorbed and remains within the skin. The absorption of the Vitamin C is impacted by the pH as well as the absorption technology of the formulation. To be absorbed by the skin, the pH of topical Vitamin C must be between 2.3 and 3.8. VIVIER™ Vitamin C serums have an optimal pH between 2.4 and 3.2.

Unique delivery system for VIVIER™ serums

VIVIER™ serums are enhanced by a unique delivery system that allows the Vitamin C and other key ingredients to be absorbed into the skin in a controlled manner and be deposited in the areas where they are needed most.

It has the power to increase absorption across the outermost layer of skin (stratum corneum) by diffusion, thereby enhancing the absorption ability into the skin and initiating a retention effect in the all layers of skin. The IDS™ delivery system is one of the reasons why VIVIER™ Vitamin C serums are so effective.
