Whichvitamin C form inKorean Skincare is the most effective?

Undisputed No. 1: Ascorbic Acid (L-Ascorbic Acid)

  • Most potent, best-researchedvitamin C form.
  • Proven to be effective against wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, acts as a powerful antioxidant, offers protection against UV radiation.
  • Boosts the effect of sun protection, should therefore be used in the morningKorean Skincare routine .

     Disadvantages of ascorbic acid:

    • Unstable, loses its effect when exposed to air and light.
    • Only works if the pH of theKorean Skincare Vitamin C   Serum is in a very acidic range of ≤ 3.5.Sensitive skin can therefore react with irritation and redness.
    • The ideal concentration is around 20%, it can cause irritation on sensitive skin.
