Dermalogica’s new BioLumin-C Serum is a revolutionary formula representing a new paradigm in Vitamin C efficacy. Whilst Vitamin C has been used for years in skin care, we took the opportunity to embrace new
technology and research that allows us to finally harness the full power of Vitamin C and enhance the skin’s natural defense system to stop damage before it starts.
Not all Vitamin C formulas are created equal
As one of the most potent antioxidants available, Vitamin C is a true skin care powerhouse. It’s scientifically proven to tackle the biological processes that lead to skin ageing. These are Reactive Oxygen Species also known as free radicals, MMP enzyme activity and the reaction of sugar with skin proteins like collagen, known as Advanced Glycation End products. How are we exposed to these processes? Via environmental aggressors such as UV and pollution plus our lifestyle choices of smoking, diet, stress and lack of sleep. They all lead to the accumulation of molecular damage in the skin, ultimately affecting the skin’s integrity, resulting in premature ageing, fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.
Advanced technology and powerful antioxidants like Vitamin C enable us to stop these biochemical reactions that trigger these structural changes, halting skin damage at its source. But when it comes to formulating with Vitamin C there are two important factors that influence its ability to deliver significant anti-ageing results.
Stability; Vitamin C must be stable in the product for it to remain active. Traditional forms of Vitamin C are easily oxidised when exposed to air, light or heat. You may have experienced your Vitamin C serum turn brown, this is evidence of oxidation which degrades the formulas efficacy.
Bioavailability; In order for Vitamin C to neutralise free radicals, firm and brighten the skin, it must get to where it’s needed, into the deeper layers of the skin. Many Vitamin C products are not optimised to achieve this.
A high-performance serum that works with skin’s own defenses to brighten and firm. Advanced bio-technology fuses ultra-stable Vitamin C and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, helping to dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with advanced technology to deliver more Vitamin C into skin. This superior formula outperforms other Vitamin C products (including those formulated at higher concentrations).
Other key ingredients include Vitamin C Complex for brighter, firmer, more radiant skin, Lactic Acid to accelerate cell turnover, Sophora Japonica Flower Extract to help return skin to a calm state after experiencing oxidative stress, and Salvia Hispanica (Chia Seed) Oil to hydrate and help quench free radicals.
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Prevents and corrects free radical damage.
Dispense a full dropper and smooth over cleansed face and neck morning and night, after toning and before moisturizing
