Number of Applications: You can expect 180-200 applications from the pure C the Power from the 60 gram container. The number of applications from the Activator will vary on usage, as it can be used as a toner as well.
We are very excited to be introducing this innovative and stable form of vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) for the skin.
Have you ever wondered why your expensive vitamin C serum turns brown so quickly? Well, the answer is simple. L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is an inherently unstable molecule and quickly oxidizes and loses its potency, once liquid is added… , by 50% within 2-3 months. In addition, any high concentration of 20% or more is really going to oxidize rapidly.
Vitamin C must be in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid to have an effect in the skin.
There are many vitamin c skin care products touting the benefits of other, more stable and less irritating forms of vitamin C. However, the skin cells can only use vitamin C in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid.
We have seen it with our own eyes as we have time and time again tried to formulate water-based creams with a high vitamin C content. It just doesn't remain stable for very long, like 4 weeks tops!
So we decided to create a powder-based high percentage Vitamin C product so that stability would not be an issue. This two-step solution solves the problem. Active fresh vitamin C to the skin every time.
BONUS feature: You can add this to any serum you are already using to give it a Vitamin C boost.
WHAT IS IT?
The Power of C is a 2-step solution to applying a high concentration of vitamin C to the skin.
C the Power Activator is a vital part in making up the C the Power treatment more effective. However, you can also add it to any Lotus Moon serums or moisturizers such as Hyaluronic Intensive, Hibiscus Flower Hydrating Lotion or even Skin Boost. You can add some powder to Living Greens Powder Masque
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
L-Ascorbic Acid is a beneficial component to this powerful application to restore moisture balance, heal wounds and repair tissue. C the Power® helps to protect and repair delicate tissue, fade discoloration and decrease fine lines.
L-ascorbic acid in its powder form does not oxidize and therefore remains stable as opposed to when it is solubilized in water-based formulations. When Lotus Moon C the Power is mixed with our C the Power Activator along with one of our serums, the powder dissolves and then delivers 100% active, unoxidized vitamin C to the skin.
