La Roche-Posay Active-C

La Roche-Posay Active-C

La Roche-Posay Active-C contains L-ascorbic acid, the only form of Vitamin C directly recognized and utilized by the skin, formulated to prevent the Vitamin C from oxidizing.

The L-ascorbic acid in La Roche-Posay Active-C works to reduce and prevent the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles for younger-looking skin.

The biological activity and stability of La Roche-Posay Active-C's Vitamin C is in contrast to the yellowed (oxidized) Vitamin C found in many serums which is devoid of benefit and may even be harmful.

Vitamin C derivatives such as ascorbyl palmitate (as found in Jan Marini C-ESTA) and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate must be converted in tissue back to the vitamin ascorbic acid to be optimally effective as natural Vitamin C.

La Roche-Posay Active-C is suitable for all skin types (including sensitive and acne-prone) however is especially useful for patients with maturing and prematurely aged skin in need of a radiance boost.

La Roche-Posay Active-C formulations may be used up to twice daily, alone, with an antioxidant such as Replenix and/or sunscreen such as Anthelios, other moisturizers, products and medications (please check with your physician before combining use of La Roche-Posay Active C with medications).
