The Tree Of Life Vitamin C Serum was designed to serve as a gentle yet effective vitamin C serum. One of the reasons that vitamin C serums are so common is that they offer the ultimate multipurpose solutions. Vitamin C can be used to help with a full range of skincare concerns from acne to hyperpigmentation as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Even more so, vitamin C is an incredibly powerful antioxidant which helps to protect the skin and prevent the skin damage that plays a huge role in premature aging. But while vitamin C is so beneficial, it can be incredibly tricky to find a formula that ticks all the boxes, depending on your skin type and your skincare needs. Looking at the Tree Of Life Vitamin C serum, this product works best for those with slightly more sensitive skin types as well as those who are looking for a more stable product with a longer shelf life. Instead of using pure ascorbic acid, which oxidizes quickly, this serum uses sodium ascorbyl phosphate or SAP, which offers most of the benefits of pure vitamin C, without the sensitivity or the short shelf life.
