The Green + Bare Pure Vitamin C Powder is a highly popular, naturally occurring, gold standard ingredient for skincare. It’s a required component in boosting the production of collagen, the tissue that’s responsible for skin suppleness (hello, firmer skin!). It also brightens the skin’s appearance and reduces the signs of aging such as hyperpigmentation, scarring, and dullness.
Option One: Mix a bit of the Pure Vitamin C Powder with your favourite evening serum or moisturizer (needs to be water-based). Simply apply as normal and let the skin-brightening acid go to work on smoothing skin and improving its overall complexion. We suggest starting out with a small pinch (like the size of a rice grain) and work your way up to a larger pinch as desired.
Option Two: Mix a pinch of the Pure Vitamin C Powder with one of the floral waters until it’s fully dissolved. Then using your fingertips, gently pat the liquid into your skin, massaging in circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Leave the vitamin on overnight.
To see results from Vitamin C on your skin, use once a day during your nightly skincare routine. You’ll start noticing improvements to the tone and texture of your skin within 2 weeks or so.
Caution: Because this is a highly active ingredient, there are some precautions to be aware of (because irritation is so not cool).
Application: After application, you may feel a slight tingle, this is normal and should calm down within a few minutes. Avoid the eye area and broken skin, don’t use it while the skin is being exposed to the sun. Application is best in the PM, and less is more, overuse can cause redness and peeling. Ensure you wash your hands after application as it can oxidize on your hands and clothes causing them to turn orang-ey/brown (think fake tan).
Mixing: Add a pinch to demineralized water, hydrating toners, serums, moisturiser, or a clay face mask for single use. Because it’s water-based it dissolves well with anything containing water. Do not mix with any other product that contains niacinamide or EUK 134. Avoid mixing Vitamin C with any SPF based products or retinol products, as this may dilute their efficacy.
Storage and Shelf Life: Make sure to store your Pure Vitamin C Powder in a dark and dry place to avoid premature oxidization. Our powder comes in an amber glass jar so you’ll get the longest shelf life possible and all benefits (yuss!). When not in use keep tightly closed.
For external use only. Avoid use if you have hypersensitive skin. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Keep out of reach of children.
