What is Vitamin C Ester?
Although vitamin C is a key ingredient of youthful-looking skin, it is unstable and highly acidic, so when it is applied to the skin topically, it can cause irritation and redness. A supercharged and less abrasive form of vitamin C, our patented Vitamin C Ester is created from a fusion of natural vitamin C and palm oil, resulting in a highly stable, fat-soluble chemical bond. Many forms of Vitamin C Ester exist, however, the most-proven and effective ones, known as long-chain esters, are the type Perricone MD uses exclusively. An exciting breakthrough, Vitamin C Ester provides the appearance of collagen-rich skin by visibly smoothing, brightening, minimizing discoloration and restoring radiance. In combination with other powerful ingredients that hydrate, nourish and firm, this popular skin care line adds beautiful luminosity to the skin.
