L-ascorbic acid has long been the gold standard for vitamin C in skincare, because it is the raw form of vitamin C. However, it can oxidize quickly with exposure to light, air, or if the formula lacks stability. If it oxidizes before being applied to the skin, it is not going to provide the benefits normally expected from vitamin C.
The Sodium ascorbyl phosphate (SAP) vitamin C included in the Firma-Bright formula must be converted by the skin in order to become effective. This means it remains stable much longer. Since this conversion acts similarly to a time-release effect, this form of vitamin C is also less likely to cause irritation, even at higher levels. SAP’s stability also creates a better scent experience than l-ascorbic acid.
Vitamin C is a great ingredient for brightening, but the Firma-Bright formula also includes the brightening Granactive peptide in combination with other brighteners such as resveratrol and mulberry. These ingredients will reduce the level of pigmentation and skin damage that occurs to sun exposed skin by inhibiting enzymes responsible for hyperpigmentation, inflammation and DNA damage.
Niacinamide is another extremely well researched and proven ingredient that targets all visible signs of aging. This star ingredient has been shown to: reduce pore size, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin barrier function, and aid in the evening of skin tone and dullness. Because it is an antioxidant, it also protects against free-radical damage and remains stable despite light and heat.
