Apothekari Bespoke Vitamin C 15% Serum (30 ml/1 fl oz) has been reformulated and now contains Green Tea Extract! Green Tea Extract contains a high concentration of EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), a potent antioxidant that aids in repair of damage caused by UVA radiation and helps prevent damaging mutations. EGCG also helps control blemishes by controlling sebum (oil) secretion thereby helping to keep pores open.
Our Apothekari Bespoke Vitamin C 15% Serum is a made to order Vitamin C serum featuring L-ascorbic acid plus an arsenal of antioxidants, moisturizing and other skin beneficial ingredients. L-ascorbic acid is a highly effective form of Vitamin C that is backed by the most clinical studies of any form of Vitamin C to support its use in skin care. We are very excited to share this product with you!
The 15% concentration offers significant benefits and is suitable for all skin types, however, you may wish to consider our Apothekari Bespoke Vitamin C 10% Serum, if you have sensitive skin. It contains the same active ingredients but with a smaller concentration of L-ascorbic acid and may be better suited to your skin care needs.
Why Apothekari Bespoke?
Because each Apothekari Bespoke treatment is manufactured by our compounding pharmacy when you place your order, you can be assured that the treatment you receive is stable, active and safe to use. This is especially important with L-ascorbic acid because while it is the form of Vitamin C backed by the most clinical research, it can be unstable if formulated incorrectly.
Each bottle has a best before use of 6 months, which will be indicated on your bottle. We recommend that you order a new bottle when you have finished your supply. Used as recommended, one 30 ml/1 fl oz bottle should last between 3 to 6 months. It is not necessary, but you can refrigerate your serum if you wish.
Clinical studies have shown that L-ascorbic acid (plus the other actives in Apothekari Bespoke Vitamin C 15% Serum) can do the following for your skin:
- Exfoliate (due to its acidity)
- Restore elasticity to aging skin
- Promote collagen synthesis
- Protect against UV damage caused by free radicals
- Reduce skin redness
- Promote wound healing
- Lighten and brighten skin tone (by suppressing melanin synthesis)
- Controls oil production helping to prevent blocked pores and minimize blemishes
*Please note that due to the high concentration of actives in this serum, that you may notice small flecks or settling of ingredients. This is normal and does not affect the safety or efficacy of this product. We have chosen to formulate without the addition of chemicals that may help it to stay in solution, but which may increase skin sensitivity or cause allergic reactions. Gently shake the serum prior to each use to distribute the active ingredients.*
