Have you ever wondered why your expensive vitamin C serum turns brown so quickly?

Well, the answer is simple...

L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is an inherently unstable molecule and once liquid is added, it quickly oxidizes and loses its potency up to 50% within 2-3 months.

In addition, any high concentration of 20% or more is really going to oxidize rapidly.We have seen it with our own eyes as we have time and time again tried to formulate water-based creams with a high vitamin C content.

It just doesn't remain stable for very long, like 4 weeks tops!So we decided to create a powder-based high percentage Vitamin C product so that stability would not be an issue.

This two-step solution solves the problem. Active fresh vitamin C to the skin every time.

Skin tissues adore vitamin C and collagen production thrives on it. While it is equally as important to include this crucial antioxidant in our diet, the most effective way to directly target skin tissue is to apply it topically.

While other types of vitamin C produce some benefit, recent studies have shown that vitamin C derivatives are not able to penetrate the skin - the percentage may not be even be great enough to notice visible results.


BONUS: You can add this to any serum you are already using to give it a Vitamin C boost.WHAT IS IT? The Power of C is a 2-step solution to applying a high concentration of vitamin C to the skin. C the Power Activator is a vital part in making up the C the Power treatment more effective. However, you can also add it to any Lotus Moon serums or moisturizers such as Hyaluronic Intensive, Hibiscus Flower Hydrating Lotion or even Skin Boost. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?L-Ascorbic Acid is a beneficial component in defending skin from environmental stress that can cause inflammation and damage to collagen and elastin.L-ascorbic acid in its powder form does not oxidize and therefore remains stable as opposed to when it is solubilized in water-based formulations.

When Lotus Moon C the Power is mixed with our C the Power Activator along with one of our serums, the powder dissolves and then delivers 100% active, unoxidized vitamin C to the skin.

Smooths on my skin beautifully My skin is bright tight and beautiful

I wish I had taken photos over the last month to show how the spot went from dark to completely gone. I looked in the mirror this morning and realized it's no longer there. My skin is brighter and healthier because of The C Duo.

One final note, my skin gets irritated easily and I've had not issues with this product.

Seems pricey, but it’s really not since a tiny bit goes such a long way. I’ve been using this twice a day for the last 2 weeks and already my older skin seems smoother and brighter and the pores smaller. Can’t wait to see the effects after a whole month.

This duo is the best Vitamin C product I have ever used. The clarity it has brought to my skin is amazing! I'm 48 and have not a single age spot or sun spot on my face after using this duo for 3 months - they're all gone! My skin is brighter, my tone more even and my pores smaller. I've even notice the small wrinkles around my mouth have faded. That I got these kind of results with zero irritation - no redness, no peeling, no dryness - is just the icing on the cake. Another fantastic product, Lotus Moon!
