Q: What is the Vit C percentage?
A: Hello Tricia, thank you for asking! Vitamin C is used in cosmetic formulations due to its skin caring benefits, such as skin brightening properties. However, the usage of vitamin C or ascorbic acid as such in finished cosmetic products is impractical since ascorbic acid is very unstable. The compound degrades itself when in contact with light and/or air. This means that after a certain amount of time no or very little vitamin C is present in the cosmetic product, no matter how high content the product originally contained. To overcome this instability problem, different kinds of ascorbic acid derivatives can be used. Lumene Nordic-C [Valo] Glow Boost Essence contains ascorbyl glucoside, which is derived from vitamin C and glucose. The amount of vitamin C derivatives in Lumene products is a trade secret. However, we firmly believe that by using stable vitamin C derivatives in our products instead of high amounts of unstable ascorbic acid, we can offer efficient, safe skin care products that do brighten the skin when used regularly.submitted byLumene - 3 years agoBrand expert
