Yes, it’s true: Spring is in the air! The last bit of rain and snow for most people in the country is winding down just as the sun’s rays are warming up which can lead to skin damage. It’s time to get ready for summer and that means repairing any sun damaged skin from winter weather and protect your skin just in time for summer. Natural skin care is important and our Vitamin C Serum is not only natural but cruelty free and contains natural lighteners to help fight the signs of aging skin.
How would you feel if you looked in the mirror and saw a luminous complexion? Would you like to protect your skin from the ravages of the sun even more? Are those pesky “salami” spots showing up on your forehead and cheeks? Would you welcome firmer skin?
When I started thinking about adding a new product to the Goddess of Skin natural products line, I consulted with my clients and the consensus was that a Vitamin C serum was essential for heathy skin. Thus began the journey to research and create the perfect serum to add to our already sacred skin care ritual.
The antioxidant properties of vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) and its role in collagen synthesis make vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health. Dietary and topical L-ascorbic acid and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP)have beneficial effects on skin cells, and studies have shown that vitamin C may help prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV)-induced photo damage to skin. Although not a sunscreen itself because it does not absorb light in the UVA-UVB range, it does protect against UV-induced damage caused by free radicals.
The Goddess of Skin’s Vitamin C Serum is a favorite amongst clients testing the product over the past year. I take to heart feedback on our product line and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Vitamin C can be a fragile little helper, and to ensure its efficacy not only do we need to protect it from sunlight and heat, but air will render this powerhouse completely useless. So, packaging and the synergy of the ingredients is crucial. I knew I wanted it to be hydrating, and also had to keep in the parameters of a natural skin care brand. We are against toxic ingredients and Goddess of Skin products are cruelty-free.
Additionally, I knew I wanted our Vitamin C Serum to be able to brighten the skin. So I added a natural lightener, Kakadu Plum, and Ferulic Acid for added efficacy.
But I took it a step further with the addition of “Syn-ake Peptide”. This revolutionary peptide’s active compound is based on a synthetic tri-peptide that mimics the effect of Walgerin1. This is found in the venom of the Temple Viper. (Love that this snake is found in a Temple! I wonder how many mantras it has listened to?) The activity of the snake peptide reduces the contraction of the frequency of muscle cells on the face. Thereby decreasing the appearance of expression lines. In-vivo testing showed an impressive reduction of the appearance of wrinkles of over 50% in 28 days.
All of these incredible ingredients are in a base of Hyaluronic Acid, and there is no water in this formula. This means less chances of oxidation, and HA is responsible for tissue hydration, lubrication, and tissue stability, and holds 500 times it’s own weight in water.
Adding “Let the World “C” YOU Serum” into your regimen keeps your skin protected, nourished, firm and GLOWING! And who does not want to add a little yummy scent into our morning and evening ritual.
