dr.dermal’s IntenCE Antioxidant Plasma is probably the most effective Vitamin C serum available on the market today. With its potent cocktail of free radical scavengers it boosts the skin’s natural defenses, and with regular use it will visibly brighten dull, tired looking skin.
While many products contain Vitamin C, not all Vitamin C is equal as there are different forms. The only form of Vitamin C that your skin can readily use in it’s original form is L-Ascorbic acid. All other forms of Vitamin C must first be converted by your skin into L-Ascorbic acid before they become useful as antioxidants.Our IntenCE Antioxidant Plasma contains 20% L-Ascorbic acid in its nano form meaning that the molecules are tiny enough to ensure efficient transport deep into your skin where it can go to work to brighten your skin, break up pigmentation, inhibit further pigmentation and improve your skins ability to heal and function optimally.
Healthy skin is also composed of a high percentage of collagen and Vitamin C is required in the skin for new collagen to be created.Your skin requires Vitamin C in order for it to function at its best. The best way to visualize how Vitamin C works as an antioxidant is to think of what happens to an apple once you cut it – oxidization turns it brown. This browning is a chain reaction and can be halted by applying an antioxidant (like lemon juice) because the antioxidants pair with the free radicals that are oxidizing the apple – (turning it brown).
On any given day, your skin is exposed to environmental aggressors like sunlight, dust, pollution, wind or more that can trigger oxidization. Think of how sun exposure can cause sun spots or pigmentation for example. High dose Vitamin C can help to prevent the oxidization caused by aggressors as well as the free radicals released by some sunblocks while also increasing the sun protection of your SPF.
Apply 2 to 3 drops to clean, dry skin and massage in gently. Allow 5 to 10 minutes for it to absorb completely before applying any moisturiser.

Q: Why is L-ascorbic acid the best form of Vitamin C?
A: L-Ascorbic acid is the only form of vitamin C that can be metabolised directly by the skin. In other words, it does not have to be converted into a different form to become bioavailable. Other forms of vitamin C must first be metabolised by your skin into L-ascorbic acid before becoming useful. In each metabolic step, the concentration of effective vitamin C dilutes dramatically. Consequently, a high potency serum with L-Ascorbic acid is the most effective way of delivering vitamin C to your skin.
Q: What does Vitamin C do in the skin?
A: Vitamin C provides a range of benefits including exfoliation, evening out skin tone and protecting against environmental damage.
Q: Will this help with my pigmentation?
A: Yes, vitamin C is known to curb melanogenesis (production of pigmentation). It also acts on the pigment surrounding the follicle.
