Vitamin C and Niacinamide
A potent vitamin C serum that delivers advanced sun damage treatment. Formulated with Ascorbic acids and Niacinamide, this serum reverses sun damage, lightens sun spots, and reduces signs of photoaging, resulting in plumper, smoother, and more radiant skin. It minimizes the impact of environmental pollutants by neutralizing the free radicals on the surface of the skin. It also diminishes the appearance of visible lines by boosting collagen production.
Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) contains an element that inhibits the skin’s melanin production, it reduces skin discoloration like dark spots and hyperpigmentation, leading to enhanced skin radiance. The antioxidant properties of Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and its role in collagen synthesis is vital. Ascorbic acid is a cofactor for lysyl hydroxylase and prolyl hydroxylase, both together are essential enzymes required for collagen biosynthesis. Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) accelerates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, these are naturally occurring protein fibers that keep the skin plump and glowing.
Also known as Vitamin B3, Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that visibly minimizes enlarged pores, improves uneven skin tone, reduces dullness, treats blemishes, softens fine lines and wrinkles, and strengthens the skin’s weakened surface.

Frequently asked questions
Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is a natural water-soluble vitamin found in citrus fruits, berries, vegetables, and leafy greens. The human body cannot synthesize it; therefore, consuming vitamin C-rich foods is essential for normal growth and development. Vitamin C has vital antioxidant, antiaging, and depigmentation properties; for these benefits, it has been widely incorporated into skincare, haircare, and makeup product formulations. Topical formulations of vitamin C are available in creams, serums, powder, and toners.
Vitamin C is found naturally as L-ascorbic acid (LAA); it is an unstable molecule but biologically active and hence effective in skincare products. There are also other available forms of vitamin C, such as sodium ascorbyl phosphate, ascorbyl palmitate, ascorbyl glucoside, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. These forms are more resistant to light and oxygen and work more delicately.
Vitamin C has powerful antioxidant properties that protect skin against pollution, sun damages and may soothe sunburns. It plays an essential role in collagen production and protects what is already present in your skin. Vitamin C is well known for its skin-brightening effect and helps fade sun or age spots keeping the skin toned and radiant. Cosmetics, including formulations of vitamin C, help fight anti-ageing signs, diminish the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and reduce under-eye circles. Applying vitamin C can also help treat various inflammatory skin conditions and address irritation or redness. It is effective in helping to heal wounds, scars, and acne.
Generally, vitamin C does not have any adverse effects but instead promotes healthy skin. In rare cases, vitamin C can trigger irritation or yellowish discoloration of the skin, but it is common for hypersensitive skin. Dryness can also be a reaction when vitamin C is applied, but a rich cream or moisturizer can quickly treat this sense of discomfort. Pregnant women should avoid vitamin C usage without medical advice.
Topical vitamin C is safe and beneficial for sensitive, oily, dry, or combination skin types. However, in rare cases, vitamin C can irritate hypersensitive skin. It is always recommended to start with a lower concentration.
You should always do a patch test when incorporating new ingredients into your routine. If you have sensitive skin, begin with the low concentration. Vitamin C can be used every day, but you can start adding it three times a week and then slowly increase the use as tolerated. The correct order to apply your skincare depends on what kind of products you use, but you should always apply vitamin C to cleansed skin and use SPF cream in the morning to protect your skin as it becomes vulnerable to UV rays. Besides, some forms of vitamin C are sensitive to sunlight exposure and may lose their efficiency. The superpowers of ascorbic acid appear in combination with vitamin E, and together they can prevent free-radical damage.
The use of topical vitamin C may lighten the darker spots caused by sun damage or aging, which is called hyperpigmentation.
It usually takes a couple of weeks of consistent use to see the first results on the skin.
