Not All Vitamin C is Created Equal

Not All Vitamin C is Created Equal

Not All Vitamin C is Created Equal

The world of skincare is constantly growing and evolving, with many new products launched daily. Despite the new innovations, one ingredient continues to stand out and remain a staple in skincare assortments: Vitamin C

But did you know that not all Vitamin C is created equal?  

Understanding The Label 

When formulating skincare products, there is a wide range of ingredient options, which can heavily impact the quality and efficacy of the formulation. There are lower quality, cheaper types of Vitamin C, which degrades the effectiveness of the products.

L-ASCORBIC ACID

- Less expensive, less stable & less impactful
- Used by many competitive skincare brands.
- Often used in higher concentrations due to the lower potency of the ingredient.
- Marketing ploys will tout the  higher concentration of Vitamin C in the product, though the results will be minimal. 

    MAGNESIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE & ASCORBYL GLUCOSIDE

    - Higher cost, higher quality, better result
    - Used by Amala Beauty in the Advanced Firming Concentrate & Rehydrating Toning Essence. 
    - Ultra-pure and extremely potent Vitamin C precursors.
    - Tested by our Product Development team and scientists to determine the optimal concentration for the most impactful skin results.

      The Four Benefits of Vitamin C 

      BRIGHTENING
      Vitamin C is renowned for its ability to fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin discoloration. Skin will appear more even, radiant and luminous. 

      ANTI-INFLAMMATORY
      This multi-purpose ingredient is known to help soothe irritated skin, reduce unwanted puffiness. The result? A healthier, balanced skin microbiome with a decrease in common skin concerns. 

      ANTI-AGING
      The topical application of Vitamin C encourages the production of collagen and elastin in your skin - which can help reduce the visual appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

      HYDRATING
      Increased moisture levels can help keep the skin soft, supple and hydrated. Vitamin C helps enhance the skin’s moisture barrier to prevent trans-epidermal water loss - ensuring optimal hydration for a healthier skin microbiome.
