Synergie Skin has launched what it calls the next generation of vitamin C serum.
Until recently the benefits of vitamin C have been underutilised, according to Synergie Skin. This is due to the instability of L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) in water-based serums. This instability issue has meant that until now, cosmecuetical formulators were unable to make full use of L-ascorbic acid serums for collagen stimulation, skin lightening and neutralising free radicals.
The L-ascorbic acid particles in Suprema-C are sub-micronised in capric/caprylic acid. The resulting larger surface area to volume ratio facilitates increased skin penetration. The stabilised L-ascorbic acid is carried in pure watermelon seed oil, which is suitable for all skin types including dry, oily, acneic or maturing skin.
It is rich in essential fatty acids which help restore elasticity to the skin. The high content of omega acids and linolenic acid within the oil assist in the removal of excess sebum in the pores.
Terri Vinson, founder of Synergie Minerals and Synergie Skin, said:
“The stabilisation of L-ascorbic acid is a breakthrough in cosmeceutical technology. Finally we are able to deliver the most active form of vitamin C, L-ascorbic acid, as a stable serum. Vitamin C should be an essential part of every woman’s skincare regimen.”
