UV rays cause sun damage
An active lifestyle leaves skin exposed to environmental stressors like UV radiation. The sun's ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB) have a harmful effect on skin, regardless of the weather (and about 80% of these rays can pass through clouds, so this is relevant all year round). The sun's infrared rays (IRA) generate free radicals and cause premature photoaging.Visible signs of sun damage include dark spots, wrinkles, uneven skin, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.
Beyond the visible signs of damage, UV radiation causes DNA changes at a cellular level and long term damage. Because photodamage from UV rays happens in the deepest layers of the skin, known as the dermis, it can take years before you know about the damage. For more info on sun damage click HERE.
Other environmental stressors damage your skin barrier
Sun damage isn’t the only issue. Other factors like high impact workouts, stress, pollution, dirt, cold weather, air conditioning, hot showers and over-cleansing can also damage skin. These factors can cause damage to the delicate skin barrier and transepidermal water loss and leave skin dry, dull and irritated.
Why topical Vitamin C is essential
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it fights harmful free radicals, preventing, protecting and repairing damage caused by free radicals that come in contact with your skin from external sources like air pollution, or from inside the body as a result of normal processes like your metabolism.
Eating an orange isn’t enough. For skin, Vitamin C applied topically is 20 times more effective than Vitamin C taken orally. Topical Vitamin C serum keeps skin healthy and strong day after day, by preventing, protecting against and repairing damage caused by environmental stressors.

It has a light gel texture that is waterless and fragrance free. In clinical studies, VC-IP showed higher uptake in human cell culture when compared to pure ascorbic acid.

FAST ABSORPTION WITH A WATERLESS FORMULA
Many formulas don’t penetrate well, they become oxidized, breakdown or remain in the upper layers of skin. Our powerful, waterless formula penetrates better than other formulas for great results on your skin. Instead of water, C ME contains patented Oléoactif®, a new generation of oil-extracted bioactive complexes. Using Oleactif ensures that VC-IP penetrates deeply into the skin for maximum benefits.

Our formula uniquely combines VC-IP and argan oil for maximum benefits. Together these ingredients strengthen skin cells before and after sun exposure. C ME also contains bisabolol, an anti-inflammatory antioxidant extracted from German chamomile that enhances the absorption of other skin care ingredients, and makes C ME even more impactful.
