Science behind this product:

Vitamin C is a proven skin-brightener and antioxidant for decades. It boosts collagen formation and effectively targets visible signs of ageing, giving skin the much-needed glow. The effectiveness of Vitamin C majorly depends upon the concentration of pure Vitamin C delivered to your deeper layer of skin. If a serum delivers 8-10 % of pure Vitamin C right into the dermis, it works like a magic wand. However, Vitamin C is highly unstable in its purest form (L-Ascorbic Acid) and loses its efficacy when exposed to air or light.

Minimalist Vitamin C serum is formulated with a stable Vitamin C derivative, 10% Ethyl Ascorbic Acid that is closest to pure Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) in molecular size and weight. With similar molecule size and 86% pure Vitamin C content it delivers maximum benefits of Vitamin C without getting bad or losing efficacy till the last drop (unlike other Vitamin C serums).

A Centella water based formula that soothes skin and reduces irritation making it suitable for all skin types. Uniquely formulated with 1% Acetyl Glucosamine (AG) that not only lightens skin tone, it also promotes synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid to improve skin hydration. Lastly, AG improves your natural cell-turnover, giving you a bright & glowing complexion.

to use

  • After cleansing and toning your face, take 2-3 drops of Vitamin C serum on your fingertips with a dropper. Apply it on the face by gently tapping it on the skin. With a circular motion, evenly spread the serum and allow your skin to absorb it
  • For instant hydration & a plump look, use it with Minimalist Hyaluronic Acid 2%+ B5. Apply a few drops of HA, and when the skin absorbs it, go ahead and use Vitamin C serum. Wait for 1-2 minutes to allow Vitamin C to get absorbed and then go ahead with applying moisturizer
  • It can be applied in the morning(AM) and evening(PM). Always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 and above while using Vitamin C serum

1. What does vitamin C serum do for the skin?
    Vitamin C serum is a powerful antioxidant that has the power to neutralise free radicals, which in turn protects skin and prevents photo-ageing. The exposure to UV leads to skin ageing and sagging of the skin. Regular usage of Vitamin C can brighten the skin tone while reducing the signs of ageing.

2. Can I use Vitamin C in AM?
    Yes! Vitamin C is an antioxidant and it neutralises are radicals. Ultraviolet light emitted by sun induces free radical formation in skin and that leads to photo aging, and even cancer. Vitamin C is a great antioxidant and it protects the skin against the harmful effects of UV radiations. So it’s not only safe to use Vitamin C in the day, it in-fact is helpful to do that. However, please note that Vitamin C is not a replacement for your sunscreen and you should always layer your Vitamin C serum with a good sunscreen when using Vitamin C during the day.

Vitamin C (Ethyl Ascorbic Acid) 10% + Acetyl Glucosamine 1%

Shalbani Das
Glow of Minimalist Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C works great wonders for our skin. But, as with any products, not all serums are created equal. Components like the type and concentration of vitamin C, the ingredient list, and even the kind of bottle or dispenser make or break your serum’s benefits and your skin. But, don't worry! You can trust on Minimalist blindly. I have been using the Vit C serum regularly in the morning for past 2 months soon after I wake up and cleanse my face. It protects me against sun damage, brightens up my skin tone and leaves a glowing effect and keeps my skin healthy. I always layer it up with a light moisturizer and a sunblock to get better results and I've been flattered by the results lately!
