VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is an essential part of skin health.   It’s the secret to a more glowing and fresh complexion.  One of the essential functions of Vitamin C is to aid in the synthesis of collagen production (a type of connective tissue), which aids in fighting wrinkles and keeping skin firm). 

The body produces collagen naturally and it is in abundance when young, but unfortunately production starts to decline at about age 25, and continues.  It decreases even more in woman after menopause and with other factors such as smoking, sugar and ultraviolet rays. 

Did you know that Vitamin C cannot be produced by the body alone?  It requires that one take the vitamin either orally or topically!  Thats why it is such an essential part of a healthy body.  

Vitamin C has a low molecular weight and is able to be absorbed directly into the skin.  It contributes to photoprotection, decreases photodamage, helps heal and reverse the premature signs of aging. It is a powerful anti-oxidant which protects the skin from free radical damage and aids in your skins natural regeneration process. 

Although you are probably getting Vitamin C in your diet, there is no way to guarantee that it is going straight to your skin.  Using serums and other topical products is the most direct way to reap these benefits.  

It has been found that by combining various forms of Vitamin C containing ingredients gives one a more absorbable product that works synergistically to provide you with every form of the vitamin so you can reap its full benefits. 

Our Australian Native Vitamin C Serum combines an array of Vitamin C containing ingredients including the most purest form of vitamin C, l-ascorbic acid, to give you a powerhouse product. 

But our extracts are not your common extracts.  These are state of the art extracts using the latest technology giving you something that not every skincare range can give.  

These extracts are some of the worlds first pure, exact duplicate of the exact elements contained in the plant itself.   The extraction process is done without the use of chemicals and provides one an exact duplicate of the plants phyto liquid matrix mimicing the natural function of the plant itself.  Each plant is not a simple component but a complex one that it set up by nature itself.  While most extracts loose some of the integrity of the plant through extraction process these extracts do not.  We are therefore providing you with some powerful plant actives and in higher concentrations than most skincare products on the market today.  

Here are the extracts chosen for the Australian Native Vitamin C serum to give your skin that perfect glow, even out skin tone and bring about healthier, younger looking skin.  

Kakadu Plum.  It has the highest recorded levels of Vitamin C than of any fruit in the world!! 75 times more than an orange!  It is packed full of anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins.

Davidson Plum.  The antioxidant of the this fruit is higher than the blueberry, which is renowned worldwide as the “health-promoting fruit”.  The actives in this fruit help stablise and intensify the antioxidant activity of Vitamin C making natural Vitamin C more effective without the use of synethics stablizers.  Davidson Plum acts like an AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid) which means that it helps to even out skin tone, fade dark patches, promote cell turnover, hydrate the cells and provide a healthier complexion.  Regular application of this extract promotes collagen growth.  It is also able to help balance the skins natural oil production and gently clean away excess sebum!
