Discover the transformative power of pure Vitamin C
Vitamin C is well known for its ability to stimulate collagen production, fight pigmentation and protect the skin against photoageing, but delivering it directly to the skin in a stable and bioavailable manner has always presented obstacles.
Alpha-H’s Vitamin C Paste with 10% L-Ascorbic Acid features a genius waterless formulation to tackle these issues head on, providing you with an intensive and transformative treatment which delivers pure and stable Vitamin C direct to the skin.
The primary antioxidant for collagen production in the skin is Vitamin C, but it is rapidly degenerated by environmental aggressors such as UV light and pollutants. By applying pure Vitamin C topically, we boost our skin’s ability to fight back against the biologic ageing which is inevitable as our stores of collagen decline and our bodies struggle to replenish it.
With each application, Vitamin C Paste creates a weightless lattice over the skin to drip feed it with L-Ascorbic Acid, ensuring maximum absorption and results.
This simple, yet brilliant formulation also features natural emollient Shea Butter to help buffer the acidity of the Vitamin C and enhance your skin’s barrier function, so it is better able to take on and use the active ingredient.
While it must always be used in tandem with an SPF for total protection, Vitamin C’s antioxidants also help to boost the skin’s defences against UV rays thanks to its ability to neutralise free radical damage which can lead to UV-induced damage such as hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and other signs of extrinsic ageing.
Antioxidant-rich and velvety soft, this potent anti-ageing paste is the next step in your skincare arsenal; it is particularly well suited to more mature skins which are beginning to lose collagen and elastin.
With its soft and flawless finish, Vitamin C Paste with 10% L-Ascorbic Acid is also perfect as a primer for your makeup.
Tip: As Ascorbic Acid is inherently acidic, some skins - particularly those not accustomed to active ingredients - may need to apply this product on alternate days to begin with and build up to more frequent use.
Normal to dry mature and collagen-poor skins. Sun damaged and hyperpigmented skins.
Can I use Vitamin C Paste with 10% L-Ascorbic Acid when I am pregnant/breastfeeding?
Yes, Vitamin C Paste is suitable for use by pregnant and/or breastfeeding mothers.
Which skin types is Vitamin C Paste best for?
Vitamin C paste is particularly well suited to normal to dry more mature skins which are beginning to lose collagen and elastin and have signs of sun damage.
After thoroughly cleansing the skin, apply a thin layer to the face, neck and décolletage morning and/or evening. If applied in the morning, follow with your preferred Alpha-H SPF moisturiser.
