Vitamin C is known to be a powerful anti-oxidant and is key to the synthesis of collagen in skin cells. There are four main factors that make Eucerin’s Hyaluron-Filler Vitamin C Booster so effective:
- 10% Pure Vitamin C: Our formula contains 200x the concentrated Vitamin C of an orange2. Research has shown that, to make a difference to skin cells, a product needs to contain at least 8% Vitamin C. Formulations over 20% do not increase in effectiveness and may also cause some irritation3. Eucerin uses a concentration of Vitamin C proven to deliver results while being well tolerated by skin4.
- Freshly-activated: Pure Vitamin C naturally degrades when exposed to oxygen so it is at its most effective when it’s freshly-activated. Our innovative packaging releases the Vitamin C powder at the push of a button. Shake it, and the powder blends with the emulsion. The Vitamin C is activated and unfolds its power instantly. Use within 21 days of activating to ensure the booster is at its most effective.
- The total formula: The formula also includes low molecular Hyaluronic Acid (skin’s own moisturizer which helps to plump up wrinkles) and Licochalcone A (which strengthens the anti-oxidative effect of the Vitamin C).
- Applied directly where it’s needed: The unique combination of ingredients in Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Vitamin C Booster means it can be easily absorbed by the skin, so you can be sure you’re applying Vitamin C right where it’s needed.
