Select Type

SKU 19771

Skin Concern: Anti-aging, dark spots, uneven skin tone, oxidative stress
Skin Type: All skin types
Dr. Sivak's Notes:
The acidity of Ascorbic Acid (L) in our Vitamin C Serum will chemically exfoliate and promote skin rejuvenation.
Promotes elasticity and collagen synthesis, reduces free radicals formed by the sun and helps eliminate the formation of dark spots.
Vitamin C Serum can be purchased in premixed 15% for more sensitive skin types, and 20% for normal skin types.
• Read Dr. Sivak’s blog about Vitamin C HERE.
Note: Due to 20% being at the maximum solubility of ascorbic acid, the solution is completely saturated and some ascorbic acid crystals may come out of the serum.
*Packaging will be changed to our pearlized airless pumps starting November 6th*

Usage will depend on individual tolerance to the acidity of the serum. Test the serum on the inside of your arm first and rinse well if you feel any discomfort. The serum can be diluted with Sea Kelp Coral in order to make it more suitable for sensitive skin.


We recommend applying a thin layer of serum to clean skin once or twice weekly. Vitamin C Serum can be applied on the face, neck, or wherever your skin is in need of exfoliation and renewal, keeping away from the eyes.


Note: Be sure to wear SPF as exfoliation can increase skin sensitivity.


Additional notes:

High concentration L-Ascorbic Acid serums, or even fresh L-Ascorbic Acid crystals dissolved in water, are great exfoliating options. Because over-exfoliation can cause inflammation and other problems, we recommend careful use of L-Ascorbic Acid serums. Usage once or twice a week is optimal for most skin types.

Our Collagen Serum with MAP (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate) is a great alternative for a daily Vitamin C product, as it contains other valuable actives we cannot use in an acidic solution.

Do not worry about waiting for the acidity of the skin to go back to normal (it will take a few hours) before using most other products. If you are using products with complex proteins, such as our EGF or our antioxidant products, it is recommended that you wait at least an hour to ensure the proteins are not damaged.

    I LOVE this new C Serum. It goes on very silky and gives my skin a matte shimmery glow. I also love the convenience of a premix but made fresh C Serum. Mary

    I gave this to my mother to try as she is a smoker and has lots of medical condition requiring mountains of meds so her skin is always a little dull, dry and grey, if unlined. After a month she reported getting lots of compliments on her skin and it was brighter and smoother. I then gave her anti-ageing cream to use along with it and her skin just transformed and is smooth and radiant.
