Sea Vitamin C Serum, an oil-based serum, is formulated with an impressive blend of vitamin C — 15 percent THD ascorbate, along with 14 other fruit- and plant-derived forms of vitamin C (Kakadu plum, papaya, and grapefruit, to name a few) — to illuminate skin.
As you probably know, vitamin C is “a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals,” explains New York City-based board-certified dermatologist Patricia Wexler. “Because of its antioxidant properties, vitamin C aids in your skin’s natural regeneration process, which helps your body repair damaged skin cells.” In simpler terms: Antioxidants protect your skin from UV and pollution damage and make your skin look brighter, firmer, and more even.
For the uninitiated, the particular form of vitamin C in Sea Vitamin C Serum, THD ascorbate, is an extremely stable, oil-soluble form of vitamin C, according to cosmetic chemist Ginger King. “It’s a vitamin C ester that is stable in oils,” King tells Allure. “It is the most stable vitamin C in the industry in the ester form.”
