- Vitamin C is a notoriously difficult skin-care ingredient to stabilize, meaning that it can oxidize and lose its efficacy over time—even before you open the bottle. BeautyStat Cosmetics’ innovative triple-patented formula ensures a consistently stable and efficacious formula throughout the product’s shelf life.
- In an independent clinical study, 100% of users saw an improvement in uneven skin tone and the appearance of pores, while more than 90% noted a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin texture, and overall firmer and healthier looking skin.
Apply daily to cleansed, dry skin before the rest of your skin-care routine, both morning and night.
Antioxidants like vitamin C help protect the skin against free radical damage caused by the sun, but you should always follow your daytime application with a sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher.
Topical vitamin C can sometimes cause a minor stinging sensation, so follow application with a soothing moisturizer, like Universal Pro-Bio Moisture Boost Cream, to help calm the skin.
To avoid possible irritation, don’t apply Universal C Skin Refiner too close to the eyes. Instead, try Universal C Eye Perfector, an eye treatment formulated with a lower concentration of vitamin C, specifically for the delicate skin in the eye area.
Full ingredients list:
20% L-ascorbic acid A potent form of vitamin C, this skin-brightening antioxidant has been shown to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and texture as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate): EGCG is an active component of green tea that works synergistically with vitamin C, to protect against signs of aging caused by free radical damage such as fine lines and wrinkles and loss of firmness.
Squalane: A lighter and more stable version of the lipid squalene, squalane is known to hydrate thirsty skin while supporting the skin barrier. BeautyStat Cosmetics contains 100% pure squalane that’s extracted from sustainable plant sugars, using a patented process for maximum efficacy.
Tartaric acid: An AHA derived from fermented grapes that provides the optimum skin pH level for product absorption
