What is Pevonia’s “C” Complexe with Oxyzomes’ superpower?
Pevonia’s “C” Complexe with Oxyzomes reveals a radiant complexion and promotes skin health for those who want to prevent and correct the appearance of fine lines, undesirable pigmentation, and uneven skin tone. It is a must for those exposed to smoke who have experienced sun damage, environmental pollutants, and high stress. This unique micro emulsified gel is quickly absorbed to render the skin radiant and smooth. Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid work together to correct photodamage and support the rebuilding and strengthening of collagen fibres. It moisturizes and drenches the skin with repairing antioxidants for a revitalized, more youthful-looking appearance.
What makes your C complex so effective and unique?
This powerhouse serum delivers an instant glow with Vitamin C encapsulated in high-tech Oxyzomes for vitamin stability and excellent absorbency. Oxyzomes are minute botanical phospholipidic time-release vehicles that consist of a core filled with a salt form of Vitamin C (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate). For maximum protection and antioxidant power, the entire wall of the core is coated with Vitamin E. Once the Oxyzome gets absorbed deeply into the skin, its outer layer starts to degrade. Over 12 hours, the Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is released and enzymatically converted into L-Ascorbic Acid for maximum cellular uptake and performance. Oxyzomes are one of the most effective methods to topically deliver anti-free radical Vitamin C in its most potent and stable form. This offers reduced skin irritation and consistent collagen synthesis support. Another powerful ingredient in this product is non-allergenic Hyaluronic Acid extract from sugar beets, which provides hydration and potent water-binding. It also acts as a delivery system for the Oxyzomes, increases the absorbency of other ingredients in the formula, and has its own share of properties to manage aging signs. This duo of actives in a micro emulsified gel base makes the “C” Complexe with Oxyzomes an extraordinary age-defence serum that can quickly boost the results of any skincare regimen.
What type of skin benefits most from this product?
This product is ideal for all skin types. For fine lines and wrinkles, dehydration and dullness, irregular texture, skin discoloration from sun damage, and skin that has been exposed to smoke, environmental pollutants, and high stress. To reduce the possibility of rare instances of irritation, the “C” Complexe with Oxyzomes may not be suitable for hypersensitive skin or recently sunburned skin and should not be applied over open wounds or on skin that shows possible signs of infection or undiagnosed medical conditions.
Vitamin C products are super popular at the moment. What ingredients set Pevonia’s “C” Complexe with Oxyzomes apart from the others?
Since its inception, the core of Pevonia’s foundational ethos has been to be unique and different. Pevonia was green before it was fashionable, launching in 1991 with cruelty-free formulas and post-consumer recyclable/reusable packaging. We incorporate delicately extracted phyto-organic and natural ingredients to create earth and skin-friendly products that are mother-nature approved. All ingredients are rigorously selected from sustainable worldwide sources for their vitality, purity, and strength. The selection of ingredients and the formulation and manufacturing processes set the Pevonia name apart from competitors.
From micronization and micro emulsification to time-release delivery encapsulation, these high-tech, nontoxic, natural methods deliver guaranteed results in every Pevonia product. The “C” Complexe with Oxyzomes is formulated as a powerful benefits booster that addresses multiple concerns for the skin's overall wellbeing and aids in managing aging signs in one step. The main actives, such as Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid, are botanically sourced as safe and effective natural alternatives to synthetic or drug-related ingredients in similar products. Then, advanced green technologies are applied to empower the action of the ingredients and deliver superior results. Vitamin C from sweet orange is converted to a salt form for improved stability and reduced irritability potential and then encapsulated in a natural time-release vehicle for maximum performance. The Hyaluronic Acid from sugar beets facilitates the delivery and absorption of ingredients while moisturizing the skin and further increasing the performance of actives.
What research backs the claims of your products?
Pevonia only utilizes research-backed proven effective, synergistic natural ingredients delivered in precise amounts through uniquely designed, advanced emulsion bases that provide the key to successful formulations. Furthermore, all pre-release Pevonia products are laboratory and clinically tested for performance, safety, results, and user satisfaction by a renowned and recognized independent entity: The Department of Drug Sciences at the University of Pavia, Italy.
How is “C” Complexe with Oxyzomes best used?
In the morning and evening, consumers can apply 1-2 pumps of this Serum on clean skin all over the face and neck. Gently massage until it is completely absorbed. For best results, use before using Pevonia Moisturizer. Consumers can amplify the glowing effect with the Pevonia Bright Skin Green Apple Mask.
How else can “C” Complexe with Oxyzomes be used?
The “C” Complexe with Oxyzomes is a powerful at-home use companion for the improved recovery and visibly boosted results of chemical peels, radiofrequency, ultrasonic rejuvenation, IPL/laser treatments, and injectables and after any youth-enhancing spa treatment. Just make sure to wear sunscreen daily while on this product. The Pevonia YouthRenew® Tinted Cream SPF 30 or the Pevonia Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 40 with Blue Light Shield is a safe and matching recommendation.
