Vitamin C Ester by Perricone MD.
Now that we’ve told you all the benefits of using this substance daily, it’s time to introduce you to Perricone MD‘s Vitamin C Ester. This proprietary ingredient was developed by Dr. Nicholas Perricone to deliver all of the benefits of vitamin C—without the drawbacks.
A more potent, highly stable, and less abrasive form of antioxidant vitamin C, vitamin C Ester gives the appearance of collagen-rich skin, smoothing, brightening, and minimizing the appearance of discoloration over time. Unlike traditional vitamin C, vitamin C Ester is fat-soluble and easily absorbable for maximum antioxidant benefits.
Vitamin C Ester is L-ascorbic acid plus palmitic acid, a fatty acid derived from palm oil. This addition makes the new molecule fat- (rather than water-) soluble so it can easily penetrate the skin’s surface. In independent studies, Vitamin C Ester has been shown to absorb more readily and achieve up to seven times higher levels in the skin than L-ascorbic acid alone. The Vitamin C Ester Collection provides supercharged brightening and smoothing with less irritation than traditional vitamin C. Vitamin C Ester is one of their most exciting discoveries and their first antioxidant-based treatment.
