STRATIA C+C SERUM
C+C Serum is a 15% vitamin C serum featuring two forms of vitamin C plus CoQ10 to help brighten, smooth, and firm your skin.
Vitamin C is one of the most powerful skincare ingredients you can get without a prescription. It can:
• Scavenge and neutralize free radicals
• Increase collagen production
• Fade hyperpigmentation
However, the form of vitamin C that’s easiest for your skin to use, L-ascorbic acid, is also extremely unstable, breaking down quickly when exposed to water, heat, or light. That’s why most vitamin C serums turn orange and need to be replaced often.
C+C Serum uses 10% L-ascorbic acid, but rather than introducing elements that cause it to degrade, we’ve suspended it in a lightweight silicone formula away from water, heat, and light. That means it’s stable on your shelf for a full year. We also added 5% ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, an oil-soluble form of vitamin C, which complements L-ascorbic acid’s water solubility.
To up the ante, we added another incredibly powerful antioxidant, Coenzyme Q10 (otherwise known as ubiquinone) to make sure no free radical is left un-scavenged. Bisabolol, a key component of German chamomile, helps soothe and calm skin.
Put it all together and you’re left with an incredibly potent yet non-irritating antioxidant serum to help brighten, smooth, and firm your skin.
C+C Serum does not have a pH because it’s an anhydrous (water-free) product.
Like all Stratia products, C+C Serum is unscented, gimmick-free, and formulated based on hard science.
