CAN VITAMIN C SERUM CAUSE IRRITATION?
Yes, Vitamin C in certain derivatives as an ingredient in certain skin care formulations has proven to irritate the skin.
Many formulations have come to market over the years, some have proven to be excellent and expound all benefits related to Vitamin C - but others tend to cause redness and become irritating - even more so over time.
SO WHY ARE SOME VITAMIN C SERUMS IRRITATING?
The purest form of Vitamin C, L Ascorbic Acid must be formulated at a low PH in order to remain stable in water based formulations. This limits compatibility with a broad range of skin types - some will find formulations with this ingredient irritating almost immediately upon application.
Other signs of your skin not being happy with the formulation may be peeling or dry patches of skin.
CAN YOU STILL USE VITAMIN C SERUM AND BYPASS THE IRRITATION?
The simple answer is yes - absolutely!
The benefits related to applying Vitamin C to the skin are well documented and clinically assessed, Vitamin C Brightens, Whitens and Tightens the skin.
The trick to avoiding irritation lies in finding the right formulation for your skin.
Due to latest scientific advances, ingredients are coming to the fore which are just as effective as L-Ascorbic Acid - but importantly, are non irritating and do not go off nearly as quickly.
Finding the right formulation for your skin is getting easier.
Look out for ingredients such as Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (C-Tetra) and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP) These ingredients are advanced forms of Vitamin C and are less likely to cause irritation - also, they're normally formulated at PH levels closer to our skin's natural PH. Another added bonus is they're much less likely to become crusty or go off on your shelf - especially if they're sold to you in airless or advanced packaging solutions which are able to protect sensitive ingredients for longer.
