L-ASCORBIC ACID

Antioxidants in our daily skin care regimen are powerful tools in the fight against ageing. They help prevent oxidation and fight free radicals.

We see examples of oxidation all the time. Think of an iron object left outdoors too long; it begins to rust. Or when you cut an apple and after a few minutes it begins to turn brown.

Free radicals come from U

V exposure and pollution to name a few. During the process of oxidation, free radicals damage skin tissue

and cause abnormal cell changes.

Vitamin C in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid when applied to the skin topically has been found to stop oxidation in the skin, stimulate new collagen growth, and increase sun protection when used along with your SPF. It also improves skin tone and texture, lightens brown spots and softens fine lines and wrinkles. That’s a lot of power in one little bottle!

Not all Vitamin C serums are the same!

When selecting a Vitamin C serum for your face, you will want to look for a product that contains at least 20% L-Ascorbic Acid and is packaged in an opaque bottle with a vacuum seal pump as it can be unstable and break down quickly when exposed to oxygen and light.

Here at Full Circle Health, we offer a wonderful antioxidant formula; Catalyst Plus and Catalyst AC-11, available in two strengths. Better yet, it’s 10% off for the month of July!
