Cutting straight to it, the serum contains oil-soluble vitamin C THD, synthetic vitamin C in glucosidic form and Kakadu plum extract and has been formulated to reduce pigmentation, improve uneven skin tone and provide antioxidant and environmental protection. As a fun addition, the serum has the added inclusion of zinc, to aid in absorption for the vitamin C. Zinc is also a powerful standalone healing ingredient, so bonus points are added for this.
“I developed The Good C Vitamin C Serum in response to clients who wanted the radiance-boosting effects of vitamin C in an optimum concentration, without damaging skin barrier function or causing sensitivity. My formulation combines the right chemistry of citamin C with surrounding ingredient science to boost the skin and provides antioxidant properties that protect from free radicals and daily environmental stress while combatting pigmentation. Regular usage results in a complexion that’s healthy-looking, fresh and radiant,” Sturm has said on the new product, which is the 12th serum to join Sturm's lineup of powerful treatments.
