Q&A

Hi I have an oily skin. Can I use this product ? Cause I saw that contains oil so I afraid my skin will have acnes. Thank you for answer!

Nghi the Lady

The Vitamin C Ester Serum is lightweight and will not cause breakouts; it's actually a good choice to help prevent and heal acne.

Eileen

What percentage of Vitamin C Ester is contained in this product?

Susan R.

Hi there. It is a long-standing company policy that we cannot disclose the percentage of product ingredients, as this is proprietary information. Research has shown that it is not the concentration, but rather the combination of ingredients that determines a product's effectiveness. We are thankfully able to use higher percentages of Vitamin C without the potential for irritation as Dr. Perricone uses a patented form of Vitamin C - Vitamin C Ester which links a palm oil to L-ascorbic acid leaving this both fat/water soluble and less likely to irritate the skin. Hope this information is helpful

In the past I would order the Vitamin C Ester Serum in a duo package with the Hyalo Plasma. Is this still available. Thank you

lulu

Thank you for contacting Perricone MD. Yes, we still have those products available in a package; you can find it on our website under the 'Exclusive Offers'. Have a nice day!

Are products such as these, with Vitamin C Ester effective on darker skin tones? I am bi-racial (half African)and want to be sure this will aid in diminishing dark spots/discoloration.

Julie

Great question! Yes people of color can absolutely use our products! Many doctors believe that since African-American skin is thicker than Caucasian skin, it can withstand highly concentrated treatments. Dr. Perricone has found that although the top layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, may be more compact, this type of skin does not respond well to aggressive therapy. In fact, Dr.Perricone has found an increased inflammatory response that result in dark patches of discoloration from overly aggressive treatment. To avoid this problem, Dr Perricone recommend's gentle, non-irritating cleansers, serums and skin care products. I hope this is helpful.

What percentage of vitamin C does this product contain?

Helena

Great question! It is a long-standing company policy that we cannot disclose the percentage of product ingredients, as this is proprietary information. Research has shown that it is not the concentration , but rather the combination of ingredients that determines a product's effectiveness. We do list all ingredients on our website: www.perriconemd.com The active ingredients Dr. Perricone uses in his products are carefully combined with other ingredients to create the most effective products possible. The Alpha Lipoic Acid that Dr. Perricone uses in his products is exactly the same as the one produced by our bodies and therefore an incredibly concentrated and potent form. The DMAE is of the highest quality and is delivered by his patented NTP complex, allowing maximum penetration to the cells. The Vitamin C Ester is patented by Dr. Perricone and is fat and water soluble, giving benefits that outweigh Ascorbic Acid Concentrations. Keep in mind that all percentages are relative and easily manipulated since they correlate to the amount of other ingredients. I can assure you that Dr. Perricone has worked very hard to create a blend of ingredients that make the products more than the sum of their parts.

Hi Will the Vitamin C Ester/Vitamin C Ester Eye Serum and Vitamin C 15 brighten my skin like making my tan fade away? Because I like to have a deeper tan and I would not like to lose it.

Liv17

Awesome question! The Vitamin C Ester 15, Vitamin C Ester Serum and Vitamin C Ester Eye Serum are serums that assist with diminishing dark spots, dark circles under the eye area; these serums also tighten and firm the skin; however, they will also lighten the skin tone and therefore lighten your tan.

Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

Question about the order of product application. Do you use the Vitamin C serum before or after the High Potency Face Firming Activator? And then follow with the Face Finishing Moisturizer before applying make up in a morning routine?

Perricone Groupie

Great question! Yes, in the daytime the Vitamin C Ester Serum is applied first, then follow with the High Potency Face Firming Activator and the Face Finishing Moisturizer should be applied last.

Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

What is the difference between the Vitamin C Ester Serum, and the Vitamin C 15% in the tube?

RB

Thank you for contacting Perricone MD. The Vitamin C Ester 15 is a stronger serum, it contains the highest concentration of Vitamin C Ester (15%). The Vitamin C Ester Serum also contains Vitamin C but a much lower percentage. I hope this is helpful.

Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

I have read your protocol page and other Q&A and I see conflicting advice. This is what I have for morning use, please specify the order in which I use them. I was told that Plasma is alway first and now I see that's not the case. I am spending a fortune on these products and conflicting information is very frustrating! 1.Nutritive Cleanser 2. Toner (Not Perricone) 3. Cold Plasma 4. Hyalo Plasma 5. Advanced ye Therapy 6. Deep Crease Serum (on laugh lines only) 7.Cold Plasma Eye Cream 8. Photo Plasma and I just got the Vitamin C serum and Vitamin C Ester tubes. In the evening I apply Blue Plasma after non Perricone toner and then follow with Cold Plasma and so on.

kristina

There are five steps to following the Perricone regime and they are: 1. Cleanser 2. Toner or Serum 3. Exfoliant - (PM ONLY) 4. Treatment 5. Moisturizer Please see the below application protocol: 1. Nutritive Cleanser 2. Toner or Deep Crease Serum - (alternate no need to layer both) 3. Cold Plasma 4. Cold Plasma Eye or Advanced Eye Area Therapy - (alternate AM/PM) 5. Hyalo Plasma 6. Photo Plasma The Cold Plasma is always the very first Perricone treatment applied before any other Perricone treatment. I believe you may have been confusing treatments with serums/toners. I find it helpful if I think of applying the products from thinnest consistency to thickest, which means your serums are applied then follow with treatments and the moisturizer is always last. I hope this is helpful.

Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

The Application Protocol shows that Vit C Ester Serum should follow the moisturizer application. I've always thought serums were supposed to precede anything heavier (both treatments and moisturizers). Not the case?

Laurie

Thank you for contacting Perricone MD. There are five steps to following the Perricone regime and they are: 1. Cleanser 2. Toner or Serum 3. Exfoliant - (PM ONLY) 4. Treatment 5. Moisturizer The Vitamin C Ester Serum (Step 2) should be applied after cleansing then follow with your Perricone treatment and a moisturizer is always last. It is quite helpful to try and remember the application protocol as thinnest to thickest. We also have an Application Protocol Sheet listed on our website: www.perriconemd.com; simply click at the top of the page on Customer Service, and to the left you will see a drop down menu, click on "Application Protocol". I hope this is helpful.

This my favorite beauty product! I love the texture and easy application. The scent is almost non- existent which is perfest for my sensitive skin and eyes. It is multi-purpose as it brightens, lightens, smoothes and evens the texture.

Excellent product!!

I use this product every morning. It absorbs quickly so that I can apply my other Perricone MD products. I noticed an improvement in the tone of my skin after the first two weeks. There isn't a Perricone product I've tried that I haven't liked. I have been using Perricone for many years.
