The C Duo
We are very excited to be introducing this innovative and stable form of vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) for the skin.
Our skin tissues adore vitamin C and collagen production thrives on it. While it is equally as important to include this crucial antioxidant in our diet, the most effective way to directly target skin tissue is to apply it topically.
There are many vitamin c skin care products touting the benefits of 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.
Recommended for: Normal – Mature - Oily - Sun damage
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR SENSITIVE SKIN TYPES.

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.
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 once liquid is added, it quickly oxidizes and loses its potency up to 50% within 2-3 months. In addition, any high concentration of 20% or more is really going to oxidize rapidly.
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.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
L-Ascorbic Acid is a beneficial component in defending skin from environmental stress that can cause inflammation and damage to collagen and elastin.
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.
Witch Hazel assists in increasing circulation in the skin while moisturizing and softening
Plant Pigments provide potent antioxidant properties. They also gives it a pink hue as well as a slight exfoliating effect and a stunning boost to the skin.

I've been a longtime customer of Lotus Moon Skincare and I don't know why I waited so long to try The C Duo. I had a sun spot on the left side of my nose for years. I would use a less natural brand filled with chemicals and it would fade, but never go away.
I wish I had taken photos over the last month to show how the spot went from dark to completely gone. I looked in the mirror this morning and realized it's no longer there. My skin is brighter and healthier because of The C Duo.
One final note, my skin gets irritated easily and I've had not issues with this product.
Seems pricey, but it’s really not since a tiny bit goes such a long way. I’ve been using this twice a day for the last 2 weeks and already my older skin seems smoother and brighter and the pores smaller. Can’t wait to see the effects after a whole month.
This duo is the best Vitamin C product I have ever used. The clarity it has brought to my skin is amazing! I'm 48 and have not a single age spot or sun spot on my face after using this duo for 3 months - they're all gone! My skin is brighter, my tone more even and my pores smaller. I've even notice the small wrinkles around my mouth have faded. That I got these kind of results with zero irritation - no redness, no peeling, no dryness - is just the icing on the cake. Another fantastic product, Lotus Moon!
