Eve Hansen Vitamin C Serum is a vitamin C formula that can be used by all skin types to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, redness, and uneven skin tone. This serum contains sodium ascorbyl phosphate, a water soluble form of vitamin C. Once being absorbed through the skin, sodium ascorbyl phosphate is converted into ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is a potent antioxidant that can protect the skin from free radicals, stimulate collagen production, and decrease the appearance of dark spots through inhibition of the enzyme tyrosinase. Ultimately, ascorbic acid helps to reveal a brighter, smoother, and clearer complexion.
The Eve Hansen Vitamin C Serum also contains several botanicals that can help moisturize, soothe, and heal the skin. For instance, one of the main ingredients in this serum is Cassia angustifolia seed extract, otherwise known as botanical hyaluronic acid. Seeds from this plant contain a high content of polysaccharides that mimic hyaluronic acid. When applied to the skin, Cassia angustifolia seed extract penetrates the dermis to secure moisture, increase skin elasticity, and assist in tissue repair and protection. This serum also contains Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), Simmondsia chinensis seed oil (jojoba oil), Centella asiatica (Gotu Kola) extract, Equisetum arvense (horsetail) extract, Geranium maculatum (wild geranium) extract, and Taraxacum officinale (dandelion) extract.
