Dr Yusof Vitamin C Serum

We all grew up knowing that Vitamin C was in orange juice, and that whenever we got a cold we needed to take some of those orange vitamin C tablets! But why do we need to use it for our skin?

If you want your skin to constantly refresh and repair itself, you need your Vitamin C applied topically. Vitamin C has so many fantastic benefits for skin and can help with an endless list of issues. Sun damage, inflammation, acne scarring, and dry skin are just a few of the skin problems that Vitamin C serums can help with, but the confidence you’ll gain from fresh, healthy skin? The gift that keeps on giving.

After careful research, we knew that we wanted to have a serum that was based around the Vitamin C benefits, but what else could we add into the serum to benefit the skin EVEN MORE…. Desert Lime is a native fruit, well-adapted to the dry desert conditions of Outback Australia. It contains a powerful antioxidant to help rejuvenate the skin, enhance skin firmness, even out patchy skin tone & revitalise skin tissue.

Kakadu Plum is an Australian superfood that has the worlds highest level of vitamin C… It’s High in antioxidants so it provides the benefits of anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory as well as giving your skin the iron supplements it doesn't usually get in a skin treatment.

Australian Lavender - we introduced the lavender into the serum to help those who are prone to acne or sensitive skin - this will help provide your face with enough oil to compensate for the natural oil your skin provides (Sebum)

Organic Lemon oil - a good remedy for restoring the luster of dull skin. Its antiseptic properties help in treating pimples and various other skin disorders. Lemon is also recommended for reducing excessive oil on the skin.

Davidson Plum - We used this native ingredients due to it containing the flavonoid anthocynain, which researchers have found: is a very strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promotes skin elasticity through enhanced collagen and elastin production and behaves like an AHA (Naturally removes dead skin cells)

These are all ingredients that are found in our Vitamin C serum, all Australian sourced, and ethically treated so that you know exactly what your skin is consuming.
