Pure-C CrystalsBack to products
A vitamin C crystal powder fortified with super antioxidant duo, L-ascorbic and alpha lipoic acid.
This highly stable formula is the most effective form of vitamin C for advanced results. With potent antioxidant, skin brightening and age-defying benefits, this is an essential for optimal skin vitality.
• Potent vitamin C antioxidant
• Brightens uneven skin tone
• Promotes collagen and elastin, minimising fine lines and wrinkles
• Stable powder formula will not oxidise, unlike water-based formulas
DirectionsUsing the spatula provided, simply dispense 1 heaped scoop of Pure-C powder into the palm of your hand and dissolve with 4 drops of water.
Alternatively, mix the Vitamin C powder with your recommended Synergie serums (1:4 ratio) for targeted results:
• SuperSerum+ (anti-ageing)
• HydroGel (oily skin)
• ReVeal (dull, sun-damaged skin)
• EnLighten (pigmentation concerns)
Do not combine with retinol or niacinamide serums. If you have a known sensitivity to acidic products, introduce Pure-C slowly over 3 weeks to allow the skin to acclimatise.

L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C): The only antioxidant that directly stimulates collagen synthesis and promotes the formation of collagen to reduce the appearance of fine lines. L-ascorbic acid protects the skin cells from harmful UV damage by neutralising DNA damaging free radicals (Reactive Oxygen Species).
It promotes skin lightening by suppressing melanin production. It is a tyrosinase inhibitor and has the ability to interfere with oxidisation phase required during melanogensis (L-ascorbic increases the conversion of O-Dopaquinone to Dopa, which reduces the formation of oxidised melanin).
This potent anti-inflammatory ingredient is recommended following laser and IPL treatments to reduce inflammation. It reduces pro-inflammatory cyotkines (small signalling proteins/peptides) that increase/escalate the inflammatory process and accelerates the healing process of the skin.
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA): A powerful antioxidant with anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties. ALA inhibits cross-linking of protein (collagen), which causes wrinkling of the skin, by limiting the production of AGEs via glycation (Advanced Glycation End Products/AGE), reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
It regulates the protection of nitric oxide, which improves vital blood flow to the skin. It also decreases dark circles and puffiness around the eyes and reduces facial swelling and puffiness. ALA also helps to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores.
Not all forms of vitamin C are created equal. Pure L-ascorbic acid is the gold standard in topical vitamin C therapy.
Unfortunately, if L-ascorbic acid is formulated in a water base it will begin to oxidise and break down almost immediately, in turn losing stability and effectiveness.
Formulating Pure-C Crystals in dry crystal form enables the vitamin C to be activated only at the time water (or an appropriate serum) is added. This provides the user with maximum activity of L-ascorbic acid on the target skin cells.
