In which products can we find Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is recognized for combating free radicals that cause oxidative stress and premature aging of the epidermis. This active ingredient also helps to restore radiance to dull and tired complexions. Depending on its concentration, it can be well suited for both the most sensitive skin types and those with high tolerance. Explore the various products containing it and identify which formulation best matches your skin type and specific skin concerns.

Vitamin C in a nutshell.

Vitamin C, also known by its chemical name L-ascorbic acid, falls into the category of antioxidants. Lack of sleep, stress, and smoking promote the development of free radicals that oxidize the cells of the epidermis and give the complexion a dull appearance. Vitamin C effectively combats this phenomenon. It thus helps to delay the appearance of signs of aging such as wrinkles and pigmentation spots. Moreover, Vitamin C plays a significant role in the production of collagen, which is essential for maintaining skin elasticity. This active ingredient is found in many products intended for the face (cream, serum, mask, scrub, gel cream, etc...).

The various forms of Vitamin C skincare.

In Typology skincare, vitamin C is ofsynthetic origin. It is derived from a chemical reaction following an extraction performed on plant sources such as corn. Here are the four products containing it, with varying concentrations to suit all skin types:

  • Radiance Tonic :

    Enriched with active ingredients to balance the skin's pH, brighten the complexion, and reduce the appearance of pigmentation spots, this toner also contains lemon verbena water that imparts a slight fruity scent. After the steps of makeup removal and skin cleansing, soak a cotton pad with the brightening lotion and apply it all over your face, avoiding the eye contour, morning and evening. Do not rinse. You can then apply your daily serum and day cream.

Please note: The brightening lotion may naturally yellow over time, but this does not affect its effectiveness.

  • Radiance Serum :

    This is a skincare treatment designed to enhance radiance and help you combat dull complexion. Every morning and evening, apply 3 to 4 drops of this serum on a previously cleansed and dried face. Gently massage the skin with circular movements. Then apply a moisturizer suitable for your skin type. We recommend using your vitamin C serum for at least 4 weeks to see its effects.

Please note: This vitamin C serum naturally turns yellow over time. This effect does not diminish the product's effectiveness.

  • Antioxidant Face Cream :

    Less concentrated in vitamin C than serum, facial cream can be a good alternative for sensitive skin. Like the serum, it fights against free radicals, prevents the appearance of fine lines, and gives a glow to the skin. We advise you to apply a small amount morning and evening on the face previously cleaned and dried, after your usual serum. Then, gently massage in circular motions to perfect the cream's penetration through the skin.

  • Tinted Serums :

    Formulated without nanoparticles and silicones, the tinted serums are non-occlusive and do not clog pores. Enriched with Vitamin C for skin radiance and aloe vera for skin hydration, they provide light coverage and even out the skin tone.

  • Serum for wrinkles and loss of firmness:

    Comprised of99% natural ingredients, this skincare product contains plant-based collagen (1%) and vitamin C (10%). The hydrolyzed plant collagen, known in the I.N.C.I. as " "Cocoyl Hydrolyzed Collagen/Collagen Amino Acids" is abiotechnological active ingredientthat mimics type I human collagen. It works in synergy with vitamin C to stimulate fibroblasts, which produce collagen fibers, thereby reducing the depth of wrinkles.
