What Is Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, We Use In Our Serum?
It is extremely difficult to formulate a long-lasting vitamin c serum that will keep its power from the first to the very last drop. It is notoriously unstable, sensitive to oxidation, and can often turn yellow in colour, which indicates it has oxidized. Best not to use it because the pH has probably become less acidic and therefore less able to penetrate the skin. Voila Pure advanced Vitamin C 50 utilises an extremely stable form of vitamin c, called Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate or STAY-C 50.
A water-soluble form of vitamin C, which is very gentle on the skin, causes no skin irritations, the easily water-soluble monophosphate ester of ascorbic acid is bio-convertes into Vitamin C by phosphatases present in the skin.
How are vitamin C derivatives derived?
Vitamin C derivatives are made by mixing L-ascorbic acid with other chemical. This process changes the nature of vitamin C from being acidic to alkaline of from water-soluble to oil-soluble or both.
Does Sodium Ascorbyl phosphate penetrate the skin better?
Sodium Ascorbyl phosphate has a salt molecule attached to it, allowing it to easily penetrate the skin's lipid barrier, without causing irritation due to its non-acidic and non-exfoliant nature. So deeper penetration with less irritation.
Ok I bought this serum to add to my skin care routine to help with facial scaring and in even skin tone after putting on the doctor's treatment I was recommended to try a vitamin c serum to help boost the effects and I believe I can see the results after a few months this brand is very reasonable and has a good texture not sticky like other serums can be and no peeling off or causing as some others have where it just makes the day cream I use come off in bits . One tip I would give is to allow the serum to dry completely and absorb before applying your normal daily moisturizer.
Vitamin c serum is recommended to help even skin tone and fade out uneven skin tone which I feel it is and my friends have noticed the difference too I'm just not one for posting pictures of myself being self conscious but I use it morning and night combined with my day and night creams . I do use the lancome anti aging cream for the day and Murad anti aging eye cream (best eye cream I have found for over 40s and it works)and at night I have combined it with my Olay retinol night cream and the night eye cream and the lancome night serum and it seems to be working well at fadeing my scars and helping even out my skin tone. I do have quite sensitive skin and it's a combination skin type and this serum has never caused a reaction and it's also got hyaluronic acid so help even more with anti aging I'm 43 years old and it's really helped me

It has a lovely creamy consistency and I like this , some Vit C serums are runny and difficult to use ..not this one ..it’s perfect. The bottle is massive too really good value for money ..this will make your skin glow .

I’ve tried the Vitamin c serum and it makes your skin so soft and smooth. It’s got a creamy texture and doesn’t irritate or dry out your skin, like other serums. This is the first Vitamin C serum. My acne-prone skin hasn’t reacted to, which helps to brighten up my skin too.
I just love how this serum is so soft, light and a bit creamy. I added it to my night time skincare
routine and I'm so satisfied how my skin feels so soft, in the morning. I've been using this for a
week now and it kind of lighten some of my blemishes which I'm s impressed. I could totally
recommend this product! And for those who's who's suffering with uneven skin tone or sun spots and wrinkle formation I think it's the best product for you to try.

This vitamin C serum is my favorite -- I've tried a bunch - some smell too citrusy, others come in weird dysfunctional squirt bottles... If you put this on at night before you go to bed, you will see a disappearance of dry spots and wrinkles. In the winter I used to get dry patches around the corners of my eyes. After applying this nightly, the problem went away. Love it 🥰
The first thing I noticed about the serum is that it has a smooth, creamy consistency. A lot of Vitamin C serums I’ve tried had a sticky texture (which made them tricky to use) and an odd smell but that’s absolutely not the case with this beauty. It glides on easily with no stickiness and absorbs like a dream. There is no unpleasant scent either which is a big bonus for me - no one really wants a stinky face do they!
I do already have a small amount of sun damage and since using this serum I have noticed a slight fading on the top of my cheeks. I hope to see this improve even more with prolonged use.

Ok so it's the second time I'm using this vitamin C serum so I waited for a month of daily using to be able to see the results .It is just fabulous ! I am using this one in the morning and night together with my moisturiser and for me personally is the best serum I have used so far .Really good in repairing the skin especially if you suffered with aknee before .Hydrates the skin really well, gives a natural glow to your skin . If you use this serum daily you will get results so be patient ! Totally recommend this

I had a very deep line in between my eyebrows & was considering botox or a filler injection of some sort! A friend recommended Voila Pure Vit C serum because she'd been given it as a gift & was seeing her wrinkles massively reduced. I started using it about 2 weeks ago & I can't believe how much of a difference it has made!! I'm using it in the morning & before bed, just a small amount & massaging it in. i have concentrated on this area so I would know if I saw a difference. I am so impressed I bought the eye gel & the face cream too!!

Texture is amazing and you see the results quite soon. Most of the vitamin c Serum I have bought before ended up in the bin except a couple of them of expensive brands. I am over 40 and I have oily sensitive skin. This one does a great job, you feel your skin smoother and more radiant... you feel it in the not only you see it! Would buy it again no doubt.
I used to spend a fortune on all those famous brands and didn’t see any results. In fact, since turning forty my skin became intolerant to a lot of them resulting in a unsightly rash. I found this serum by chance my skin is as fresh and plump as it was in my twenties. It absorbs into the skin really quickly. After using it twice a day for a week I could see brilliant results. I have just ordered my second bottle. Great product. Thanks Voila pure!
I bought this because I figured I needed to start a skin care regimen and this is working great! After using it daily for one week I could really tell the difference in my skin. I’m 35 and oily, acne prone skin with acne scars. This has significantly improved the longevity of my make-up, reduced visibility of my acne scars on my face, and has lightened problem areas around my chin and mouth. I wish I had started using it sooner.

This serum is magical ! I’d pretty much given up on finding anything natural and organic that would make my 46 year old skin look less, well, 46!! My skin looked and felt much better from the first use. It absorbs brilliantly, has definitely brightened and plumped my skin, it is wonderful as a base before moisturiser and foundation. I have been so impressed with this product. I bought the retinol cream the other day, and that’s also fantastic. Will also send a review on the Retinol cream once I’ve used it for a week or so. Definitely worth buying.
