Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum
Massage into skin after cleansing in the morning.
What is the percentage of vitamin C? Our Vitamin C Serum utilizes sodium ascorbyl phosphate (SAP), a form of vitamin C that is much more stable and less prone to oxidation than some traditionally used forms of vitamin C. This serum is wonderful for both sensitive and acne-prone skin! The recommended percentage for efficacy without irritation is different for various forms of vitamin C, and therefore they cannot be compared simply on a percentage basis. Our serum would be comparable to a 15-20% L-ascorbic acid serum. We use a combination of vitamin C, vitamin E and ferulic acid as this trio of ingredients has been shown to offer a compounding antioxidant effect.
Is this supposed to be clear? A pale yellow, cloudy serum is not outside the realm of normal for our Vitamin C Serum due to the plant extracts (such as chamomile, clary sage, and konjac) used in the formulations.
Do I need to use sunscreen if Vitamin C Serum is applied in the morning?Our Vitamin C Serum is rich in antioxidants making it a great choice for daytime use, however it doesn't replace a sunscreen. We recommend wearing a physical blocking sunscreen daily to help protect your skin from damage.
What is the consistency like? The Vitamin C Serum is a thin, gel-like serum that absorbs quickly and easily into skin.
Is this good for acne-prone skin? Our Vitamin C Serum is wonderful for easily congested and oily skin types. It is a concentrated blend of vitamin C, ferulic acid, and vitamin E along with nutrient-rich konjac root.
Do I apply this morning, night, or both? We recommend using our Vitamin C Serum in the morning and exfoliants like our Vitamin A Serum or Exfoliating Serum, at night. If you are not using another serum at night, you may apply the Vitamin C Serum twice a day.
How much am I supposed to use? We recommend using a dime-sized amount of Vitamin C Serum, which is usually enough to cover face and neck.
Does this have a fragrance? We do not use synthetic fragrances in our line, however, this serum does contain konjac root, chamomile and clary sage extracts which do impart a faint aroma. It does not have a strong smell and dissipates quickly.
