In the skin care world, Vitamin C is essentially the brightening superhero to know. It’s a potent antioxidant that does it all, but because it’s notoriously unstable, you’re more likely to find its derivatives in your skin care products. L-Ascorbic Acid is Vitamin C’s purest form; other effective (and stable!) derivatives include Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate and Retinyl Ascorbate.

+ Can you use Vitamin C daily?
As we often say, context matters when customizing your skin care routine. In general, Vitamin C products can be used daily or every other day, but it depends on your skin type as well as the other products you’re using in your regimen. For example: avoid combining Vitamin C with retinol or exfoliating acids, which can cause irritation.
+ Should you use Vitamin C at night?
It depends on the type of product you’re using! Our Vitamin C Serum, for example, is formulated for nighttime use every other evening—so do check the directions of whatever product you’re using. The most important thing here is consistency.
