Glutathione is a precursor to ascorbic acid, so it regenerates ascorbic acid as it is used up by our skin. This results in an effective delivery system that far outperforms any percentage of free ascorbic acid or other ascorbic acid derivatives.
With regular ascorbic acid it may add free radicals back as it loses it efficacy. YIKES! The glutathione conjugation in Triple C + Gold prevents this from ever becoming a pro-oxidant.
Formulas containing regular ascorbic acid will see about 80-90% decrease in ascorbic acid content after just 6 days of opening the product. Oops, there goes your money!
With Triple C + Gold, 100% of the ascorbic acid penetrates and is bioavailable to the skin. AND it is 100% stable! This means it retains efficacy after the product has been opened.
The antioxidant properties of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and its role in collagen synthesis make vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health. Dietary and topical ascorbic acid have beneficial effects on skin cells, and some studies have shown vitamin C may help prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV) induced photodamage.
When gold is combined with other antioxidants it makes them more effective at the molecular level. This makes it possible for the ingredients to penetrate the skin's lower dermis levels, protecting new cells and encouraging collagen's growth. Gold can calm acne inflammation, reduce skin redness, and protect against free radicals that lead to wrinkles and sun damage.
Ascorbic Acid, Gold, Glutathione;– Ascorbic acid complex is designed to keep ascorbic acid 100% stable over time and increase the penetration of vitamin C into the skin. By conjugating ascorbic acid to gold, its bioavailability is increased drastically, and glutathione (a vitamin C precursor) helps to replenish ascorbic acid as it’s broken down.
Gold (Acetyl Heptapeptide-9, Gold) – A collagen boosting peptide for an anti-wrinkle effect. The peptide is bound to gold to extend the bioactivity of the peptide from 30 minutes to 36 hours.
Terminalia Ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum) Fruit Extract – Extract from Kakadu plum, which contains the world’s highest source of Vitamin C. Studies on this active have shown that it also stimulates the transport of Vitamin C into the skin and boosts collagen synthesis.
Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract - Collagen boosting and marine biofermented to improve hydration and barrier function, protect skin from blue light pollution, and provide skin with a natural glow.
