Why Ultra-stable Vitamin C is your NEW complexion superstar

Why Ultra-stable Vitamin C is your NEW complexion superstar


The new Natural Actives Brightening Serum is packed full of radiance-inducing ingredients like Ultra Stable Vitamin C, so you can enjoy instant brightening, with long-lasting benefits. Allowing you to glow about your day!

When it comes to harnessing the power of Vitamin C, the formulation really matters.

Whilst popular for its skin-brightening properties, Vitamin C does come with a down-side – it is also notoriously unstable. This means it starts to break down and lose its brightening capabilities once the product is exposed to air. Our NEW Natural Actives Brightening Serum stands out amongst other skincare players with Ultra-stable Vitamin C. The extra stability helps our Brightening Serum maintain its glowy goodness when exposed to light or air as you use it.

Our Brightening Serum has been consciously crafted in our Sukin Lab to target concerns like pigmentation, redness and address dull, lacklustre skin types.

In conjunction with our Ultra stable Vitamin C, clinically proven Tomato Fruit Extract elevates this Brightening Serum above the others. Included for its clinical ability to improve skin radiance*, say hello to instantly brighter skin. Vitamin E in the ingredients list supports and enhances the effects of your Vitamin C whilst also protecting your skin from un-friendly skin scavengers known as free radicals.

For over 15 years in skincare, we have been committed to using natural ingredients across our formulas and the Natural Actives Brightening Serum is one of our BEST formulas to date. Layered within this formulation is Bisabolol, an active ingredient found in Chamomile, Bisabolol helps to reduce the appearance of redness, propelling you on your journey to a more radiant skin tone.

The super lightweight oil-based consistency applies like silk across your complexion, readily absorbing into the skin without leaving behind a heavy or sticky feeling. An added sensorial benefit is the subtle scent of uplifting citrus upon application.

When it comes to using a Brightening Serum in your routine, we recommend applying in the morning. This allows the antioxidants in your serum to protect your skin against those out-of-control free radicals we mentioned earlier, all day long.

We understand that when making skincare choices, you may have multiple concerns you want to address. That’s why we’ve designed each Natural Actives Serum to work in conjunction with another, enabling the serums to be layered. As a general rule of thumb, apply your leave-on products in order of thinnest consistency to thickest. This will ensure all the ingredient goodies have a clear path to absorb into your skin.
