Vitamin C Serum Decoded Part 3: Should Vitamin C Serum Consistency Be Thick? March 19 2014, 0 Comments

The short answer is no, the consistency of your Vitamin C Serum should not be thick. Vitamin C Serums that are sticky or thick in consistency often contain silicones.

Silicones are chemically derived, which means they are not natural.  Any time you introduce a foreign chemical to your skin, you risk irritation, flare ups, and developing allergic reactions.

Simply put, chemically derived silicone found in thick, sticky serums may give you to the opposite skin experience you want.

The best vitamin C serum for your face will contain hyaluronic acid.  Skin care products that contain Vitamin C have more effective penetration when paired with hyaluronic acid.  Here’s why: Hyaluronic acid already occurs naturally and abundantly in skin. Hyaluronic Acid is particularly rich in young skin and the body’s connective tissue. Aging, a poor diet, and environmental pollutants destroy hyaluronic acid.

In a serum, however, hyaluronic acid can help to restore some of this hydrating compound that is inevitably lost from your skin as you get older.

Hyaluronic acid is also the optimal delivery method for Vitamin C. Hyaluronic acid helps the Vitamin C compound resist oxidation, and allows the Vitamin C to penetrate deeply into your skin to stimulate collagen production.

Sano Naturals Vitamin C Serum is made with the most stable form Vitamin C, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate. Our stable Vitamin C compound is fully immersed in organic hyaluronic acid with no added fillers or silicones.

The consistency of our Serum allows for optimal penetration of active ingredients into your skin.   That way, the active compounds get to where they need to be to give you the best looking, smoothest, brightest skin possible.  Sano Naturals Vitamin C is fully immerse in Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Aloe.
