The two most important things to look for when choosing a Vitamin C serum:
1) Is the active ingredient listed "L-Ascorbic Acid"?
2) Was it bottled in a completely oxygen-free environment?
The first thing to look for when choosing a Vitamin C serum is that the form of Vitamin C listed is... real Vitamin C. Serums containing "Ascorbyl Palmitate," "Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate," "Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate,"...etc. are all legally allowed to be called "Vitamin C serums," even though these derivative forms tend to have little to no actual Vitamin C antioxidant power. The ingredient you're looking for is "L-Ascorbic Acid," which is the pure, natural, full-potency form of Vitamin C you'd find in a freshly-picked orange.
The second thing to note is that if your Vitamin C serum doesn't smell sweet and look like light yellow apple sauce, it's no longer Vitamin C. There's a lot of talk out there about "stabilized Vitamin C" created by adding water or Ferulic acid. These indeed increase the stability, but if the serum is bottled with oxygen exposure, every hour it sits on the shelf it will continue to oxidize, degrade and lose its effectiveness significantly.
All Protocol serums are lab-made, using technology from the aerospace industry. Protocol bottles all serums in a 100% oxygen-free environment, ensuring our key ingredients are protected and preserved in their full potency, all the way to your skin. To make this possible we had to work with a company who builds containment technology for the aerospace industry and the US Navy.
