Why it's unique?
Antioxidants act as the first line of defense against the break down of collagen, by neutralizing free radicals. L-Ascorbic Acid is a highly potent form of vitamin C, which quickly loses its efficacy when exposed to oxygen. By combining vitamin E and ferulic acid to this formula, it not only increases the antioxidant content, but also creates a self-stabilizing environment to preserve the effectiveness of the antioxidants. The addition of vitamins B3, and B5 create an even bigger boost in VITADROPS' antioxidant performance.
Hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and sodium PCA are natural humectants that continuously attract moisture into the skin. Vitamin E nourishes and protects the lipid barrier by preventing moisture from escaping. These ingredients work together to ensure optimal levels of skin hydration.
Each ingredient is used in its most effective form, and was specifically selected for its ability to affect real results on the skin.
Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid)
Vitamin C in its most efficacious form, L-Ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant. It is known for its ability to brighten the appearance of hyperpigmentation and effectively defend from oxidative stress.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol)
A hydrophobic molecule, meaning a molecule that is not water soluble. Tocopherol restores hydration by nourishing the lipid barrier and preventing the evaporation of existing moisture, known as trans-epidermal water loss, or TEWL. It also acts as an antioxidant and is highlighted by its stabilizing abilities in this formula.
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)
Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide can improve the appearance of enlarged pores, brighten dull skin, as well as defend against environmental toxins. Niacinamide also has a hydrophilic molecular structure, meaning it attracts water from its environment.
Vitamin B5 (Panthenol)
This form of Provitamin B5 is a hydrophilic, or water absorbing, humectant and conditioner that works to pull in and bind moisture to the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate)
Known for its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight In water, Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant that draws moisture into the skin.
Sodium PCA is a naturally occurring humectant that is a derivative of amino acids. It is known to be hygroscopic, or able to absorb water from the air, making it an excellent hydrating ingredient.
Glycerin is a humectant that works by balancing moisture levels, helping skin feel smoother and softer.
Directions for use
