L-Ascorbic Acid is Vitamin-C in its purest form. It is a powerful antioxidant that is fantastic for helping various forms of skin aging. L-Ascorbic Acid has even been known to reverse existing hyperpigmentation and fine wrinkling. Vitamin-C loses its potency when premixed with water, oil or when exposed to sunlight. This is why MERME’s comes in a powder form to ensure you get the highest potency each time mixed fresh.

How to use Vitamin C
For maximum anti-aging and brightening benefits:Use alone on clean skin. Perfect before any moisturizer or face oil. Vitamin-C is also great in your AM routine for extra UV protection.
For skin new to Vitamin C or very sensitive skin, start with lower dilutions by: Boosting Your Cleanser: Once diluted with water, mix MERME’s Vitamin-C Powder with your cleanser for extra Vitamin-C.
Create a Vitamin-C Moisturizer: Add extra antioxidants by adding the diluted powder to your moisturizer or serum.
Mix with a Mask: Again, once diluted, add to your face mask for extra antioxidants. Perfect with plain clay masks for an extra boost.
Granules must be completely dissolved in order to penetrate into the skin. Dilute one scoop with 20 drops of water in your palm and mix until completely dissolved. Apply to skin or mix into other treatments.
For layering products in your routine, start with Vitamin-C and apply your oil or moisturizer at least 15-20 minutes after. Oils should not be used as the mixer for Vitamin-C powder as it won’t dissolve properly.
A tingling sensation may occur as your skin adjusts in the first 1-2 weeks. Ideal to use every second evening or up to 4 days per week. If irritation occurs discontinue use.
