The challenge with vitamin C is that it is unstable for topical application. When exposed to heat, air, or light, it breaks down quickly and it becomes ineffective. DERMAX Professional recently developed a unique and
innovative product, a powder-to-serum vitamin C to overcome this concern. The new concept DERMAX VITAMIN C POWDER SERUM works like magic as the powder transforms into concentrated serum upon application.
The powder-changing serum formula has highly potent Ethyl ascorbic acid encapsulated in a hydrogenated lecithin powder base. This gives the novel vitamin C product concept optimal stability and long-term effectiveness. Hydrogenated lecithin also acts as a skin conditioning agent.
DERMAX Vitamin C Powder Serum provides 6 key benefits to your skin:
A research study shows that those who used topical vitamin C experienced significant reduction in fine lines and wrinkles after 12 weeks. Another study confirms the beneficial effects of vitamin C in 60% of patients treated.Topical vitamin C application can stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that is responsible for the skin’s plumpness and elasticity.
Topical vitamin C acts as a natural bleaching agent and lightens the skin. It improves skin texture and tone, reduces brown spots, and corrects pigmentation problems.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects skin against toxic chemicals, pollutants, and free radicals, which are harmful molecules that damage collagen and cause premature skin aging.
Topical vitamin C has anti-inflammatory benefits that helps in skin conditions like acne vulgaris and rosacea. Vitamin C also promotes wound healing and prevents post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Research suggests that vitamin C can reduce sunburned skin cells caused by UVA and UVB rays and minimize the consequences of long-term sun exposure. While vitamin C can protect and repair sun damage, it is still recommended to use daily a broad spectrum sunscreen like DERMAX UV Milk Anti-Aging Sunscreen or UV Active Hydrating Water-Burst Sunscreen.
SENSITIVE SKIN PROTECTION
Recent studies show that vitamin C can increase the thickness of the skin, thus increasing skin barrier function, making skin less sensitive.
