When formulated into a serum, it is critical that Vitamin C is in a stable form. Otherwise, it will lose its potency over time and become less effective. BRIGHTEN Vitamin C Serum contains two stable forms of Vitamin C:
Ascorbic acid polypeptide
Ascorbic acid in the polypeptide form …
is a superior form for Vitamin C delivery. Other forms can be less stable, oxidize quickly and do not penetrate as effectively. A polypeptide is a type of chain produced by amino acid proteins. And in this case, the protein is derived from citrus fruit and provides a very effective delivery of ascorbic acid.
In Jakare’s BRIGHTEN formula, the ascorbic acid is encapsulated in a liposome and spun into a polypeptide. Liposomes are spherical vehicles composed of a phospholipid and vitamins. This liposome actually protects the ascorbic acid so that it doesn’t lose its potency or go rancid. When BRIGHTEN is applied to the skin, the liposomes break open at that time to release the ascorbic acid for absorption into your skin cells. This guarantees the potency and freshness of the ascorbic acid and thus the stability and effectiveness of BRIGHTEN. Serums that do not use this process can become unstable and ineffective over time.
