Vitamin C is the most searched for skincare ingredient online. And for good reason. L-Ascorbic acid, also known as pure Vitamin C, is a hydro-soluble vitamin, synthesised or naturally extracted from citrus fruits. It is considered one of the most powerful and effective antioxidants and is widely known for its broad antioxidant and anti-aging properties. It has been shown to help effectively neutralise free radicals and protect the skin against excessive oxidative stress. Sold? Us too, but what is the best skincare to choose with so many choices? And are there any drawbacks?
Vitamin C is a potent ingredient but, as with many other antioxidants, it’s unstable in its pure form and is difficult to stabilise. Other derivatives exist but they don’t work as well as pure L-ascorbic acid. That was until a French scientist and founder of ALPHASCIENCE Dr. Marchal Organic Chemistry PhD, was the first scientist in Europe to stabilise it in mixed formulas, creating a complex of potent antioxidants that work in synergy: the third-generation vitamin C complex.
ALPHASCIENCE TANNIC ACID SERUM is the world’s first ever Tannic Acid serum created with Dr. Alfred Marchal PhD guidelines and contains pure vitamin C, proven by an independent laboratory to be uniquely stable for months, even at high temperatures and in the skin.
The serum is designed to future proof your skin and correct early signs of ageing. With a high concentration of the vitamin and reparative ingredients including L-Ascorbic Acid, Tannic Acid, Ferulic Acid and Ginko Biloba, it will work wonders on your wrinkles and have your skin feeling fresh and firm in no time.
