Vitamin C is a renowned skin treatment with a very impressive track record. Using this potent antioxidant daily on your skin can protect your skin from UV damage, reverse the signs of ageing and help to maintain a glowing, youthful complexion. But the key to getting the maximum benefits from this wonder supplement doesn’t come down to the brand but rather the particular type of vitamin C that’s in the formula.
Vitamin C gives antioxidant protection to the skin. It uses electrons to neutralise free radicals in the skin formed due to environmental stresses like pollution and UV radiation. It also promotes the production of collagen which as everyone knows, is vital for anti ageing. Additionally, vitamin C blocks the enzyme responsible for melanin production and this can lead to brighter skin with a radiant glow.

L-Ascorbic Acid is by far the most potent and effective of all the forms of Vitamin C. It’s the most efficient at penetrating the skin barrier and its skin benefits are scientifically proven.
When properly formulated at the correct pH of less than 4 and at the right concentration, this type of vitamin C can have magical results.
BUT, L-ascorbic acid is water-soluble and oxidises (breaks down) when exposed to heat, light and air, rendering the vitamin C inactive and potentially damaging to your skin.
Some products containing L-Ascorbic acid sit around on shelves for months on end and by the time they are bought and used in a regime, they're practically useless. This is why it’s critical to choose an L-Ascorbic acid serum that’s formulated correctly to give maximum benefits.
KJ Serums Triology Vitamin C serum is a powerful antioxidant complex of pure fresh L-ascorbic acid, ferulic acid and Vitamin E made freshly every month and packaged in amber glass bottles to protect the active ingredients. This means that it’s effective and potent for the entire one-month period of treatment.
How to use Trilogy Fresh vitamin C serum
If you're using our Trilogy serum for the first time, we strongly advise you to choose 10 percent concentration only for the first month to allow your skin to adjust smoothly. After which, you can increase the concentration to 20 percent. It's equally essential to use our serum while it's fresh and active and approximately within four weeks of purchasing to retain its effectiveness.
We recommend a light moisturiser after the serums. KJ Serums HydraSilk is a nice light one with excellent ingredients but if you have a favourite this is OK too. You should also use a good quality broad spectrum sunscreen EVERY day and avoid UV exposure as much as possible.
Morning: Triology + HydraSilk Moisturiser + Sunscreen
Night: Triology + HydraSilk Moisturiser
Wait a few seconds between each application to allow the serums to absorb and dry. A hand fan can speed the process. We have one available at the website.
