Vitamin C face serums are a popular beauty item. They range in price from about $20 to more than $200. When the cost varies that much, you have to wonder if the quality varies that much as well.

A few years ago, my friend Liz Wolfe — aka Real Food Liz — asked about collaborating on an anti-aging vitamin C serum. There were many on the market, but we didn’t feel comfortable using them. They were water-based and contained all kinds of harmful ingredients — including their type of vitamin C.

Most skincare companies use the wrong from of vitamin C. They use lab-made derivatives: ascorbyl palmitate and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. These derivatives are quite stable but not very effective. Recent studies have shown that vitamin C derivatives are either not absorbed by the body or are not converted to the correct form in high enough concentrations to have any effect.

The vitamin C serum Liz and I created is made differently. We use the power of REAL food to infuse the serum with L-ascorbic acid. This form of vitamin C is the only one that can be used by the skin and body. A face serum made with L-ascorbic acid will provide you with the top 5 anti-aging benefits of vitamin C.

4. Slows free radical damage

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can slow the rate of free radical damage. If free radicals overwhelm the body’s ability to regulate them, a condition known as oxidative stress ensues. When that happens, free radicals adversely alter lipids, proteins and DNA. This can trigger a number of diseases. An application of an external source of antioxidants can assist in coping with this oxidative stress.

5. Sun protection

Topical vitamin C can protect you from the harmful effects of the sun. Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals produced by oxygen. These are the highly reactive molecules produced by the interaction of sunlight on the skin’s cell membranes. Vitamin C does not absorb light, so do not consider it a sunscreen. Instead, it’s a great addition to your usual sun protection.
