Leaders in Vitamin C


Hailed as an anti-ageing superstar and a core part of the Medik8 regime, vitamin C is a must-have in any morning skincare routine. Our collection of vitamin C products are expertly crafted with only scientifically proven forms of vitamin C within stabilised formulations. We have a format for everyone; nourishing creams, potent serums and SPF combinations.

L-ASCORBIC ACID

This is the vitamin C for purists looking for results. We have gone to exceptional measures to make sure our Pure C15™, containing 15% ascorbic acid,is highly stable before opening, and lasts for at least 8 weeks once opened. Delivered in two separate bottles, you get 2 x 8 weeks supply of vitamin C - making it great value for money.

We have optimised our formula’s pH to make sure the ascorbic acid has the most effect, but with minimised irritation. We produce the formula in a chamber saturated with nitrogen, rather than air, to stop ascorbic acid from coming into contact with oxygen and becoming unstable. Ascorbic acid is combined with vitamin E and glutathione, two other antioxidants naturally found in the body.

This antioxidant complex mimics the skin’s natural defensive system and forms a rechargeable antioxidant network. The antioxidants work synergistically to boost their overall antioxidant power, while regenerating each other for long-lasting potency. This means that the vitamin C is uninterrupted to help stimulate collagen production and to help inhibit the formation of hyperpigmentation, for brighter, younger-looking skin.

TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE

An oil-soluble derivative of vitamin C, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate has a long name and a long shelf life. Super stable and ideal for penetrating deep within the skin’s lipid barrier, this derivative provides an easy entry-point to the vitamin C range, with very little irritation. Included in our C-Tetra® range along with beneficial emollient oils; tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is perfect for targeting lines and wrinkles while leaving skin nourished and cared for.

ETHYLATED L-ASCORBIC ACID

Last but not least, introducing our most powerful form of vitamin C in Super C30™. The molecule is based on ascorbic acid but has a carbon chain attached to the most reactive part of the molecule, which stops it from being oxidised. This means ethylated ascorbic acid retains all of the efficacy of pure vitamin C without any of the stability issues. Expect a slight tingle when you apply this due to its potency, which will subside within a few minutes. We only ever use chirally correct vitamin C in all our products to ensure it reaches its full potential on the skin.
