Key active ingredients:
10% of stable form of Vitamin C (3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid) - this derivative is resistant to high temperature and light. It is an excellent antioxidant - it eliminates free radicals, preventing premature skin aging. Stimulates collagen synthesis and is very well tolerated by the skin. Gently brightens and inhibits the synthesis of melanin, which is responsible for the formation of discolouration.
Hyaluronic Acid (ultra low molecular weight) - is biocompatible and deeply moisturising. The content of natural HA in the skin decreases with age and leads to dry skin. One molecule of HA in the serum is able to bind about 250 water molecules. It increases the level of hydration in the stratum corneum.
Redivine® - grape leaf extract - has anti-pollution and anti-blue light properties. Eliminates free radicals, promotes soothing irritation, improving skin firmness and elasticity.
20% of Geranium Hydrosol soothes irritations and supports the care of capillary skin.
Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate (glycyrrhizin from licorice root) - has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Supports skin regeneration, reduces redness and irritation.

Is it safe to use vitamin C serum in the summer? ~ Absolutely, vitamin C, especially its stable derivative, is beneficial for summer care and does not have a photosensitizing effect. However, we believe that sun protection is a good idea at any time of the year - when applying during the day, we recommend applying a sunscreen.
Does the serum weigh down the skin? ~ when tested by an independent laboratory, 90% of test subjects declared that it does not weigh down the skin and 95% declared that it does not clog pores. C-shot has a light, watery texture that quickly melts into the skin.
