Benefits of Vitamin C

The many benefits of vitamin C start with the fact that it will improve your skin on several levels. It works on evening out skin tone, introducing brightness, and fortifying the skin against environmental aggressors like free radicals, which can damage and age the skin. 

Getting rid of hyperpigmentation or dark spots that are caused by the sun need skincare products formulated for sun damaged skin. That includes using a variety of vitamin C products, such as a vitamin C serum and other serums like our Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. A hyaluronic acid serum not only binds moisture to the skin, but it will make all your other cruelty-free skincare products with vitamin C work so much better.
