Vitamin C is highly recognized in the dermatological market for its great skin effectiveness but is also highly unstable. Therefore, having a high concentration of vitamin C is not enough: it must be pure, soluble and stable.

Soluble: Greater penetration into the deepest skin layers.
Stable: Higher vitamin C power to the last product application.
Since it is a product with a high active ingredient concentration, it is recommended to be used at night because, during this period, the skin is more receptive for treatments. However if you do apply during the day, it is necessary to use a minimum SPF 30 sunscreen, since the skin becomes more sensitive.
It is recommended to use the product at night, on clean and dry skin, every other day for the first week of treatment, to better adapt the skin to the formula's ingredients. After the first week, the product should be used daily, by applying a small amount on the face.
