How to choose the best vitamin c serum?
In choosing the right vitamin c serum, you must consider three things
the concentration , form ,and PH level
- The concentration :
- the highest concentration of vitamin c serum the more benefits to your body action but not less than 10 percent of L-Ascorbic acid.
- less than 10% will not penetrate the skin that’s leading to less absorption as mentioned by dermatologists and experts).
- The form :
- vitamin c has many different forms: L-ascorbic acid is the best one and it is the most efficient form unless you are wasting your money.
- The other forms that may be included are trahexyldecyl ascorbate, ascorbyl palmitate, and sodium ascorbyl phosphate, and many others. But not each of them is equal in effect.
- The PH level:
- Only a PH level of less than 3 will be absorbed and penetrate your skin.
- this achieved when the form used has both L-ascorbic acid AND has a concentration of at least 10%.
