Q-SkinScience Serum C is a light topical serum containing Vitamin C (12%) and Cucumber Extract (28.1%).

Both ingredients work in synergy to improve skin tone, elasticity and a reduction in the appearance of pores. Serum C was developed utilizing a special, patent pending process that reduces water content, thus minimizing oxidation and degradation of the formula. This process provides for the maximum potency and effectiveness of the topical Vitamin C utilized in the formulation, the most effective form available today, pure L-Ascorbic Acid.

Results Backed By Science: Our skin is exposed on a daily basis to environmental assaults from many sources such as the UV radiation from sunlight as well as from man-made light sources, cigarette smoke and air pollution, all of which cause oxyradicals to form in the skin. These oxyradicals attack the skin's collagen layer and break it down, causing lines and wrinkles to appear; the process commonly referred to as photo-aging. Clinical studies show that topical application of certain antioxidants, such as Vitamin C in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid can help prevent photo-aging in skin and provides many other essential benefits to the skin such as:

  • Protection against UV light radiation induced free radical damage.
    • Stimulates collagen production improving skin tone and elasticity.
    • Helps control inflammation.
    • Promotes wound healing.
    • Reduces erythema (redness).
    • Protection against UV light-induced immunosuppression.

    Remember, the benefits of Serum C should not be limited to just the face. It is especially recommended that a few drops of Serum C be applied directly to those areas of the body exposed to Ultraviolet light, such as the neck and upper chest areas and the hands and arms, prior to applying your daily sunscreen, in order to help combat sunlight induced photo-aging. Serum C should also be applied to the entire body by mixing several drops with your favorite body lotion.
