20% Vitamin C Serum - Pro-Collagen Ultra Brighten Firm & Glow
Our philosophy is to support the skin barrier and not irritate skin, so we bring you an effective, high concentration of 20% Vitamin C in a more stable, less irritating way that doesn't require a low pH to be effective (using Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate vs. L-Ascorbic Acid).
20% Vitamin C supports natural collagen, brightens and firms look of skin, improves skin tone and complexion for an even look, improves appearance of lines and wrinkles, improves dull looking skin, and supports radiant looking glowing skin.
Balanced with hydrating and soothing Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe, Shea Butter, Green Tea, Chamomile, and Arginine.
- Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe moisturize, plump, and smooth the appearance of skin.

Skin feels soft and silky. For all skin types, including oily and blemish prone.
Thicker gel-like serum. Dropper with pump or can be packaged in a jar for a value option.
If you are looking for a similar serum that's less active and intense, we also have a gentler 5% Vitamin C version.

Tip from founders: We both loved the combination of applying a cocktail mix of Hyaluronic Antioxidant Serum + Vitamin E & Prickly Pear Antioxidant Vitamin Booster Oil, then following with this 20% Vitamin C serum.
