WHAT DOES VITAMIN C DO FOR YOUR SKIN?
A vitamin C serum will supercharge the results in all skincare routines; no matter your skin type or concern.
Help fade hyperpigmentation
Vitamin C has the incredible ability to help lighten hyperpigmentation - patches of skin that are darker in colour than the rest of your skin. Hyperpigmentation can be caused by age, UV damage, medication, hormonal changes, and acne scarring.
Using Vitamin c for acne scars is an effective way to minimise their appearance. It can aid in lightening 'post inflammatory hyperpigmentation' (darker patches of skin that appear post breakout) while still being gentle enough for compromised skin.
Slow signs of ageing
A potent antioxidant and active ingredient, Vitamin C works to strengthen the skin cells and protect collagen against free radical damage. This helps with repairing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall skin texture.
Vitamin C not only protects existing collagen, it plays a key role in producing more collagen which helps skin maintain its firmness.
Collagen production naturally slows down as we age which leads to a loss of volume, wrinkles, and fine lines. Using Vitamin C serum encourages new collagen and delays these signs of ageing.
Brighten a dull complexion
Struggling with a dull, tired looking skin? Vitamin C is a superior skin brightener helping to enhance skin radiance and even out and lighten a dull skin tone.
Protect against UV damage
Using Vitamin C skin care will aid in boosting skin’s protection against UV damage. Antioxidant properties work to neutralise the free radical damage caused by unprotected exposure to the sun - which accelerates the visible signs of ageing. Use a Vitamin C serum under sunscreen for enhanced daily protection against free radicals and ultraviolet light.
How to use Vitamin C serum
After cleansing your skin, use the dropper to apply an amount smaller than a pearl of Pomegranate Brightening Serum onto your skin and massage in. Follow with face oil / moisturiser and then sunscreen.

Pomegranate Brightening Serum is formulated Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) plus the best plant-based ingredients for skin lightening; Pomegranate extract, Kakadu plum and Liquorice root extract.
Kakadu Plum is a superior natural skin brightening ingredient - this Australian native superfruit is believed to be the world’s most potent source of natural Vitamin C. Pomegranate is abundant in Vitamin C too and Licorice Root extract also contains natural skin lightening properties.
You should apply Vitamin C serum after cleansing your skin. Use the dropper to apply an amount smaller than a pearl of Pomegranate Brightening Serum onto your skin and massage in. Allow 2 - 3 minutes for the serum to be completely absorbed before applying the next product in your routine.
To get the maximum benefits from your Vitamin C serum, we recommend applying it in your morning routine. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant which helps defend your skin against the environmental stressors it faces during the day, like pollution and UV rays.
Always follow your vitamin C with broad spectrum SPF 30+ protection as skin is more photosensitive after using vitamin C. Not applying broad spectrum sunscreen after using Vitamin C skin care can lead to further skin damage.
You should apply vitamin C serum immediately after the cleansing step in your morning routine to maximise absorption. Follow with a moisturiser or face oil and then your broad spectrum SPF 30+
Yes. Vitamin C serum is a potent skin brightener. It helps lighten hyperpigmentation, even out skin tone, fade brown spots, banish dullness and enhance skin radiance.
No, you don’t wash off Vitamin C serum. After applying it to your skin, allow it to be absorbed completely (wait 2 -3 minutes) before applying the next product in your routine.
Yes, you need to apply moisturiser after Vitamin C serum. Serum doesn’t replace the moisturising step in your routine - they work together as a team. Vitamin C serum delivers a potent hit of antioxidant benefits to your skin and a moisturiser helps keep skin hydrated by sealing moisture into the skin.
Results and time frames will vary and depend on individual skin types and concerns. Benefits may include smoother, softer, and brighter skin. Allow time for your natural cell regeneration cycles to complete.
Vitamin C serum then Hyaluronic Acid serum. In your morning routine, apply Vitamin C and allow it to full absorb into the skin before applying Hyaluronic Acid serum.
If you haven’t used Vitamin C or Hyaluronic Acid before, introduce them into your routine separately. Apply the Vitamin C serum in your morning routine and Hyaluronic Acid in your evening routine to allow skin to adjust to the active ingredients.
Form of Vitamin C: Ethyl Ascorbic Acid which is more stable than L-ascorbic acid (another form of Vitamin C)
Concentration: If you’re just starting out with Vitamin C skin care or have sensitive skin, it’s advisable not to begin with a high percentage. Any active ingredients, like Vitamin C, should be introduced slowly into your routine. Our Vitamin C serum contains 3% Ethyl Ascorbic Acid.
