My favourite go to Vitamin that I can’t live without. If I ever run out my skin looks dull and sad. Vitamin C is such an essential part of cosmeceutical skin care. The “mighty” skin strengthener! A robust, influential antioxidant that is able to protect the cells and stimulate production of Collagen and Elastin in the skin.
LIVENOW uses only the best ingredient L-ascorbic acid as it is the form of vitamin C that the cells recognise. Evidence suggests that other forms of vitamin C derivatives are less effective.
The LIVENOW Vitamin C is in a stable form and available in a beautiful emollient base that can be used around the eye area. The serum comes in a 10 and 15% serum that glides across the skin for a smooth luxurious finish.
