Vitamin C Serum

Key Ingredients:

Aloe Vera Gel: Moistens and speeds healing through increased fibroblastic activity, promoting rapid formation of granulation tissue. Improves age related wrinkling and dryness, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne. The effect is cleansing, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and immune enhancing. (Cech)

Camu Powder (Whole Food Vitamin C): Promotes collagen production which will regenerate new skin cells, antioxidants to fight free radicals, brightens, helps hyperpigmentation, reduces redness, brightens complexion

Bioactive Pearl Powder:

  • Resilient Skin: Pearl contains a variety of amino acids, which provide the structural building blocks for the skin tissue. Therefore, the use of Pearl may help improve collagen synthesis, cellular repair, skin hydration, and protect skin from pollution and toxins.
  • Rich in Minerals: Pear powder contains over 30 trace minerals, including some of the more scarce elements that people tend to be deficient in including, magnesium, silica and calcium. The natural occurring calcium carbonate alone can help to support proper thyroid function, which in turn promotes healthy skin regeneration, oiliness and moisture. Calcium supports the thyroid gland in regulating sebum production and cell turnover. Also, when the body is deficient in calcium, parathyroid increases along side prolactin, which increase the calcification of the skin, leading to fibrotic, scaly skin. Increasing calcium intake can help to prevent this, ensuring the calcium stays in the bones/teeth where it belongs.
  • Antioxidant Protection: In addition to being a rich source of nutrition, pearl powder increases the production of the bodies two most powerful antioxidants: superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione. These antioxidants help to protect every cell in the body from stress, aging and disease. Low levels of these antioxidants, paired with a high level of reactive oxygen spices (free radicals) contributes not only to wrinkles, and skin aging, but nearly every disease imaginable.1
  • Porcelain Skin: Traditional Chinese Medicine texts suggest that regular use of pearl powder can eliminate blemishes such as age spots and fine lines. Its antioxidants and micronutrients also help to protect the skin from the stress of aging, supporting more graceful aging that is more resistant to stressors. Pearl also contains nacre, a substance that has been found to stimulate fibroblasts in the body, which accelerates wound healing and skin regeneration. This can also help collagen regenerate itself, which may make wrinkles appear less prominent. (From Forever Healthy LLC Website)

Tumeric Essential Oil (optional): cleanse, nourish, clarify, smooth, calm, invigorate, strengthen, and exfoliate. Also very anti-inflammatory for people who suffer from this on their skin. Helps wrinkles and signs of aging. 

This formula is gritty in texture, due to the camu and pearl powders. I suggest using it after the oil cleanse and rice water or rose hazel spray, topped with lighter to heavier serums and moisturizers after.

Ingredients: Aloe vera gel, skin glycerin, Camu powder, bioactive pearl powder, turmeric EO (optional)
