All of your questions about our vitamin C serum, including those about its ingredients, packaging, and other frequently asked questions, are addressed in this guide.
What makes our vitamin C serum effective?
The Foxtale C For Yourself Vitamin C serum is formulated with 15% L Ascorbic Acid which is the purest and most potent form of vitamin C. Products containing L-ascorbic acid penetrate skin tissue and aid in boosting the skin's production of collagen, which is what gives your skin a youthful appearance. It also aids in the skin's suppleness.
L-ascorbic acid is an excellent vitamin that also assists in minimizing the harm done by free radicals, which include those produced by pollution and exposure to UV rays. The Foxtale vitamin C serum is a one-stop solution for skin aging, skin firmness, and overall skin regeneration and brightening as a result of all these advantages.
How do we make our vitamin C serum stable?
L-ascorbic acid is slightly more complicated than other forms of vitamin C, but the results on the skin with this component are so spectacular that we had to include it in our serum. It is without a doubt the most effective and pure form of vitamin C, however, it is also pretty unstable when it comes in contact with water (Aqua). It requires highly specific conditions to impart all of its potent antioxidant potential to the skin. Fortunately, we have the best R&D team, which took on the challenge of making the Foxtale vitamin C serum a stable composition.
First and foremost, to stabilize the formula, we reduced the pH to less than 3.5, leaning slightly acidic. Many Studies suggest that this pH value makes the formula more trustworthy to use and that the serum does not oxidize as soon as it would otherwise.
When L Ascorbic Acid is present in serums in concentrations of between 10% and 20%, it is stable and efficacious. According to a Study, "in most circumstances, a product needs to have a vitamin C concentration higher than 8% to be of biological importance." With a 15% concentration, the Foxtale vitamin C serum is a potent and reliable treatment for aging and pigmentation.
Experts also add one or more antioxidant compounds to the formula to assist stabilize L-ascorbic acid. The most common is vitamin E, often known as Tocopherol which the Foxtale vitamin C serum consists of. It is quite safe for all skin types because it is a major fat-soluble antioxidant that is already present in our skin. According to the same study, L Ascorbic acid and vitamin E act together to give excellent photoprotection, promote collagen in the skin, and protect the serum from rapid oxidation (change of color).
When it comes to reducing the risk of instability and oxidation in L Ascorbic acid serum, the packaging of the product also makes a significant effect. When exposed to air or UV radiation, L ascorbic acid may oxidize at a considerably higher pace. As a result, the Foxtale vitamin C serum comes in an opaque package that shields it from direct sunlight.
In addition, the Foxtale serum has been redesigned and is now equipped with an airless pump rather than a conventional pump with a pipe in order to prevent further oxidation. This novel package employs an airless pump to extract the serum without letting air into the container because a traditional pump allows air to enter the bottle, which can speed up oxidation. As a result, fewer preservatives are required, and you can use the serum all the way down to the last drop.
Pro Tip: It could take a few initial pumps to get an airless pump working. Therefore, after opening the package, we advise you to shake it and pump it a few times.
