Who's it for? This Vitamin C serum contains sodium ascorbyl phosphate (the water soluable form of ascorbic acid) which makes this a lot less irritating than most serums. So if you have sensitive skin, this is the serum you want to be using.
And, because this serum contains moisturizing ingredients like aloe vera and jojoba oil, its great for those with dry skin, too.
Ingredients: Vitamin C typically comes in the form of ascrobic acid. However, this can be extremely irritating to those with sensitive skin. The Serumtologie serum contains sodium ascorbyl phosphate instead. This ingredient is just as good, just a bit watered down which is why there's 22% of it.
We love this product because it is packed full of beneficial ingredients. This stuff contains 5% hyaluronic acid, 1% ferulic acid, and 1% Vitamin E. As a bonus, it contains aloe vera leaf and jojoba oil for moisture.
To make things even better, it contains no parabens, phthalates, sulfates, or dyes. It's made in the USA, vegan, and not tested on animals, too.
Texture and application: The Serumtologie Vitamin C serum has a luxurious light and smooth texture that we can't get enough of. The color of the serum varies from clear to milky white, which is exactly the color it should be.
But what really sets this product apart from the rest is the cobalt blue dropper bottle. Amber or blue bottles actually protect the serum from light. Brands with transparent bottles are cheaper and give the serum a shorter shelf life.
Price: Since most quality Vitamin C serums cost somewhere in the $20-$100 range, we think $35 for an all-natural product is a steal. The price reflected is for the 1.15 fl ounce jar. We think that is a great price for this serum -- well worth the investment.
