Vitamin C is considered the ultimate super-powered antioxidant. Every esthetician, dermatologist, beauty editor and skincare expert will tell you it’s a must-have in your skincare daily regimen. This super-powered vitamin is shown to even tone, help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, lighten and fight free radicals.
The downside is, as an ingredient, it’s also highly unstable and finicky in its natural form even Ester C. It loses effectiveness and oxidize with just the slightest provocation by basic life events: air, light and over time. It must be packaged in a dark glass, nonclear color or opaque plastic bottle or jar, in other words it must be a UV protected container. You shouldn’t keep it in an area that gets hot, because elevated temperatures and UV rays can break down unstable vitamin C. Ester C can easily oxidize when exposed to the air, its stats changing to a brown color. It’s best to use products that are in airtight pumps, air-pumps or tubes.
Then you get to the question is there the proper concentration of vitamin C to be effective. Many brands don’t. For vitamin C to be most effective the formulation must contain 10 to 20%, unless the brand explicitly states the percentages, it’s impossible to know if it is as effective as you need it to be. Also remember high concentrations and overuse of vitamin C can accelerate skin aging, long term.
If you currently care for your current product, there’s a good chance it’s not doing anything except being an antioxidant.
Natural Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant that activities in water. So, when vitamin C is applied in a cream or serum to the skin, it penetrates the skin cells which are 70% water, and the vitamin C becomes active as an antioxidant. Other vitamins such as E, A, D, and K are oil-soluble and when they penetrate the body, they become active antioxidants in the fat and oil that makes up other parts of our cells and body fat.

“I started Skin 2 Skin out of personal necessity. As a result of intense radiation treatments to combat a brain tumor, I was left with facial damage and I created my own true clean product to eliminate all visible damage. It worked and Skin 2 Skin was born.” Ken Simpson, CEO, Co-Founder & Chief Formulator
