Number of Applications: You can expect 100-150 applications from the pure C the Power from the 1 oz glass bottle.
Our vitamin C powder booster just got an upgrade. We added ferulic acid, which helps vitamin C perform better.
This innovative and stable form of vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) for the skin is the best to get the vitamin directly to our skin.
As many of you may know, l-ascorbic acid in water-based formulations are very unstable and quickly oxidize and begin to turn yellow. The problem with vitamin C creams and serums on the market is that they have a short shelf life. Vitamin C quickly degrades and becomes ineffective once dissolved in liquids.
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 by providing active vitamin C to the skin every time.WHAT IS IT? C the Power boasts potent water-soluble antioxidant L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), which protects skin from oxidative damages caused by the sun rays (UVA/UVB radiation). It improves skin elasticity by enhancing the production of collagen.C the Power Activator (sold separately) 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. You can add some powder to Living Greens Powder Masque WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? L-Ascorbic Acid is a beneficial component to this powerful application to restore moisture balance, heal wounds and repair tissue. C the Power® helps to protect and repair delicate tissue, fade discoloration and decrease fine lines.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.

I first bought the sample size to give it a try and noticed it was doing wonders for my 40+ year old skin texture and tone. So I told my 15 year old daughter who is dealing with hormonal and mask acne to give it a try too. She had begun a habit of picking and creating very dark spots around the lower half of her face. This vitamin C is helping those dark spots fade into glowing beauty again. She’s not 100% consistent with her routine, and I believe it would work even more efficiently if she did, but it’s definitely making a difference. She is much more confident and is able to not feel so self conscious about the spots and scarring. I can visibly see her skin texture improving in front of my eyes! I’m sold on this!
I have been using Lotus Moon products for over 10 years. I added this product into my routine about 6 weeks ago, and I'm glad I did. After a few days of us, I felt that I needed additional guidance on use, so I booked a call to ask some questions. I came away from the consultation with several new ideas on use.
This is my new routine:
Do not use with a retinol: there is some evidence that Vitamin C and retinol diminish the effectiveness of each other, so it is best to use one in the AM and one in the PM.
AM use is best for me: Vitamin C has some sun-protective qualities, so using it in the morning is beneficial.
A little bit goes a long way: using too much powder makes it harder to dissolve, and it will burn your skin. To get an appropriate amount of powder, I place my damp fingertip on the bottle and invert it. The amount of product that sticks to my fingertip is the perfect amount to dissolve in the activator.
Mix the activated powder with oil: I add a bit of oil to the powder/activator mix, and then massage the mixture on my face, neck and decolletage.
Results: I've noticed increased plumpness, elasticity and tone as result of using this product, and dark spots are significantly improved. I definitely recommend this product and will keep using it myself.
