Vitamin C

Vitamin C is your best ally for hyper-pigmentation and first signs of aging.

Vitamin C is very unstable and over time will turn brown, this means it loses its properties and is no longer effective. 

L-Ascorbic Acid is fat soluble and will come in oil-based products. It’s pure but very unstable.

For years  Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate has been favored. It’s known to work well with other ingredients such as vitamin E and ferulic acid (both great brightening) and hydrating options. May be a great option to those that have sensitive skin.

The newest Vitamin C is 3-O Ethyl Ascorbic Acid. it's a water-soluble formula that is known for being the most stable and most potent and is easily absorbed by the skin.
