Vitamin C is a highly popular antioxidant and is known as a required component in the production of collagen, which is what provides skin its suppleness and elasticity.

Rating: Will this product cause light sensitive to skin?
Also the product itself should avoid light?
New Directions Aromatics Response:
Hi Donna, Vitamin C Raw Material is a light- and heat-sensitive product, thus it is recommended to keep it in dark or opaque air-tight pumps in a cool place away from sunlight. If properly incorporated into cosmetic formulations, the final product can be used in both day and night products.

Rating: I bought it just to try it out and count my lucky stars since! I'm using it for the Facial Toner and whoever tried it saw their pores shrinking... I'm also using it on my face and I definitely saw a big difference on my skin... it's bright and fresh! I will definitely buy more!
Rating: It seems that there were 500 ml packs available in before, but why now only 1 kg packs available? Highly recommend to have a smaller size pack instead of a 1 kg pack.

Rating: I ordered this as an experiment and I am so glad I did! I could see a difference after one application and my clients are loving it! Great value for the size

Rating: Great except I wish it came in a smaller size as I just use it for personal use. Also, as far as I know ND doesn't sell anything to stabilize this? I need to buy ferulic acid elsewhere, which is inconvenient.

Rating: Very Happy. I used it to make Vit C serum. It is cheaper at NDA compare to what you would pay at the stores. I checked with all the health food stores at the mall before I placed my order.

Rating: It may seems a bit expensive but 500 g goes a very long way. Really worth it.

Rating: Dissolved 1g of vitamin C powder (1/2g for sensitive skin type) into 10ml of distilled water, then I apply it to the whole face, including eye areas, during the day and at night, I found that it really can prevent age-spots from growing rapidly, firms the skin immediately, and clear uneven skin tones.
