Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum
Our award-winning serum is a harmonious blend of antioxidants that work wonders on improving the overall appearance of the skin!
Directions: Massage into skin after cleansing in the morning.
What is the percentage of vitamin C? Our Vitamin C Serum utilizes sodium ascorbyl phosphate (SAP), a form of vitamin C that is much more stable and less prone to oxidation than some traditionally used forms of vitamin C. This serum is wonderful for both sensitive and acne-prone skin! The recommended percentage for efficacy without irritation is different for various forms of vitamin C, and therefore they cannot be compared simply on a percentage basis. Our serum would be comparable to a 15-20% L-ascorbic acid serum. We use a combination of vitamin C, vitamin E and ferulic acid as this trio of ingredients has been shown to offer a compounding antioxidant effect.
Is this good for acne-prone skin? Our Vitamin C Serum is wonderful for easily congested and oily skin types. It is a concentrated blend of vitamin C, ferulic acid, and vitamin E along with nutrient-rich konjac root.
Do I apply this morning, night, or both? We recommend using our Vitamin C Serum in the morning and exfoliants like our Vitamin A Serum or Exfoliating Serum, at night. If you are not using another serum at night, you may apply the Vitamin C Serum twice a day.
How much am I supposed to use? We recommend using a dime-sized amount of Vitamin C Serum, which is usually enough to cover face and neck.
Does this have a fragrance? We do not use synthetic fragrances in our line, however, this serum does contain konjac root, chamomile and clary sage extracts which do impart a faint aroma. It does not have a strong smell and dissipates quickly.

Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, a more stable form of Vitamin C than the commonly used L-Ascorbic Acid found in most skin care products, provides the same benefits, without the risk of oxidation and irritation that is often associated with L-Ascorbic Acid.
Vitamin E - Protective antioxidant that has been shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles & discoloration.
Ferulic Acid – A natural antioxidant found in the cell walls of plants. When combined with vitamins C & E, Ferulic Acid has been shown in studies to have a compounding antioxidant effect.
