Part of the Vitamin C Total Body Skin System.
A blend of three unique, time-released, targeted delivery systems slowly diffuse three stabilized forms of Vitamin C and three forms of Vitamin E throughout the skin, creating a reservoir of vitamins at all levels that helps visually repair years of sun damage within weeks.
The three forms of targeted Vitamin C absorb more efficiently, magnifying Vitamin C’s antioxidant, cell protective power up to six times. This means lower percentages of Vitamin C produce maximum results without risk of irritation or vitamin oxidation.
Known to be synergistic in their effects, Vitamin C recycles Vitamin E as an antioxidant, increasing Vitamin E’s free radical-scavenging effects fifty times normal. These vitamins also help prevent sebum oxidation, working together to reduce and prevent blackheads and clogged pores.
Within days to weeks, skin’s youthful radiance is revived, obvious lines and wrinkles diminish in appearance, normal skin tone begins to return, and blockages in pores are reduced or eliminated – without the irritating effects of other extra-strength Vitamin C products.
NOTE | The three delivery vehicles in Triple C&E Complex ensure the equivalent of 14% free Vitamin C is delivered into the skin. Because the Vitamin C is time-released and slowly converted to its acid state over several hours, irritation is significantly reduced or eliminated. The delivery vehicles also ensure the Vitamin C level stays constant throughout the shelf-life of the product, producing maximum vitamin stability and activity of a year or longer. Formulas that contain 10-20% Vitamin C frequently do so to offset the amount of Vitamin C that is oxidized throughout the product’s lifetime. Within six months, retesting of high percentage Vitamin C products shows their content can diminish to 2% or less, with the remainder of the Vitamin C oxidized – which is apparent as the product begins to turn brown. Oxidized Vitamin C can irritate the skin and cause blocked pores.
Triple C&E Complex is a gentle, no-sting formula that is tested and proven safe for sensitive skin.
