The Nue Co. TOPICAL-C
Why Shen Loves it: Topical - C is a powdered vitamin c supplement for your face, proven to boost collagen, fight sun damage, and firm skin. It's activated in the palm of your hand when added to your existing moisturizer or serum. Applied daily, skin appears brighter with less visible fine lines + wrinkles. Expect fast results!
Vitamin c is a volatile ingredient. It's hard to stabilize and maintain, which means most products toting its benefits aren't nearly as effective as they claim to be. Somewhere between manufacturing and hitting shelves, the formulas lose their potency. Topical – C is different. We use a powdered form of vitamin c that doesn't activate until you tell it to.
We mix l-ascorbic acid—aka pure vitamin c—with a plant-based antioxidant called ferulic acid. Both are proven to stimulate collagen production and fight sun damage. Then we add tapioca starch derived from the roots of cassava plants, collodial oatmeal and aloe vera to exfoliate, soothe + heal the skin.
Shen Recommends: We typically recommend it for AM routines, but you can use it at night too. Just dissolve 2-3 shakes in the palm of your hand with water or your favorite serum and apply it to your face, neck—and décolletage if you feel like it. With daily use, you can expect brighter skin + a visible reduction in fine lines, scarring, and pigmentation.
