Skincare products containing Vitamin C are luring in consumers with promises of brightened and more even complexions. In fact, over the past few weeks and months, queries for advice on Vitamin C products have surged during Dr. Barbara Sturm’s weekly Digital Masterclasses and Skin Schools. There is still a need for education especially about the tolerance of Vitamin C: just like ingested Vitamin C, too much can be a bad thing and concentrations of more than 5% can impair the protective skin barrier and lead to inflammation if not formulated correctly. In response, Dr. Barbara Sturm has developed THE GOOD C VITAMIN C SERUM; a new serum invention which deploys Dr. Sturm’s proprietary formulation of Vitamin C in three skin-friendly forms. The serum contains the optimal concentration of 5% Vitamin C in a stable form that is easily absorbed, safe and gentle on the skin. Dr. Barbara Sturm’s THE GOOD C VITAMIN C SERUM contains an active ingredient complex that includes oil-soluble Vitamin C THD, stabilized, synthetic Vitamin C in glucosidic form and an extract from Kakadu Plum, a fruit that is a potent source of plant-based Vitamin C. Together, they help to reduce uneven pigmentation, improve tone and provide anti-oxidative protection from free radicals and environmental stressors for a youthful and healthy-looking complexion. The serum also contains Zinc, which helps to increase the absorption of Vitamin C into the skin. Finally, Vitamin C supports the formation of collagen, which is needed for firm and youthful-looking skin.
-Place one pipette length of THE GOOD C VITAMIN C SERUM into the palm of your hand and distribute over the face using gentle tapping motions. Avoid the eye area. Wait for approximately one minute until the serum is absorbed before applying Dr. Barbara Sturm’s FACE CREAM.
-For daytime use, we recommend concluding your skincare routine with SUN DROPS SPF 50 for extra sun protection.
-Also suitable for use in the evening as a night-time serum. THE GOOD C VITAMIN C SERUM can be mixed with other Sturm serums, drops or moisturizers.
