Purpsose: An anti-oxidant rich serum that supports brightening and antioxidant protection of skin with minimal irritation
Texture: An emollient oil that sinks into the skin without a greasy or tacky finish.
Vitamin C and its derivatives are known to be effective ingredients in skincare. However, side effects like skin irritation and poor product stability often inhibit people from using these ingredients to their fullest potential. We wanted to create a product including soothing and stable alternatives (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate) to traditional L-Ascorbic Acid (vitamin C), to aide with brightening and soothing the skin alongside other potent antixoidants Coenzyme Q-10 and bakuchiol. Of course we also had to pair these ingredients with some of nature's finest skin regenerative inredients - rose and ginseng.
Packaging & Notes:
30mL of product that comes in a glass jar with a plastic lid and glass dropper. Packaged in a paper carton. Vegan.
Apply after water based serums and before moisturizers or other facial oils. If your skin is extremely sensitive, you can use this as the last step in your routine to see your skin's tolerance to it first.
Make sure you wear SPF diligently to maintain any brightening progress in your skin.
Key Ingredient Highlights
Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate - a lipid stable, oxidation resistant form of vitamin C that does not lose efficacy with exposure to air or water. Aids in evening out skin tone, increasing collagen turnover/synthesis, and provides anti-oxidant activity
Bakuchiol - a plant derived anti-oxidant with preliminary studies suggesting partial similarities to the effects of retinol, although not directly a replacement or alternative.
Coenzyme Q10 - a powerful lipid soluble, vitamin-like antioxidant that helps reduce and reverse UV damage in skin
Ginseng extract - an anti-inflammatory adaptogen that promotes circulation in skin, that contains over 200 biologically active compounds in the root itself
Rose extracts - a timeless and classically known ingredient to be known for its ability to promote gracefully aging skin and improving healing and turnover time of scars. Moonlight Afterglow contains extracts of both damascena and centifolia roses.
