Benefits

A combination of science and botanical ingredients help firm skin and smooth lines and wrinkles.

Helps to even skin tone by reducing the look of acne scars, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation.

Free radical-fighting antioxidants defend skin from environmental stress that can cause inflammation and damage to collagen and elastin.

Acne is caused when oil, hair and dead skin cells clog pores. Ingredients such as Salicylic Acid and AGP Complex help stimulate cell turnover to curb breakouts.

Formulated free of petroleum-based oils to gently nourish skin without clogging pores.

Improved texture and proper product absorption is due to exfoliation. When the surface layer of the skin is removed, fresh skin is revealed and can absorb active ingredients easier.

For those with severe gluten sensitivities or Dermatitis Herpetiformis, rest assured this product is gluten free.

Mix crystals (a few shakes) with any of your favorite COSMEDIX serums and moisturizers and apply to face.

Day

Pure C is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Change in product and container I have purchased Pure C for several years with satisfaction. This recent order, I was surprised to find that the plastic jar and screw on cap, as pictured, was replaced with a cardboard container and a plastic top you would find on disposable salt and pepper shakers. It is important not to expose this product to air, so this container is a concern. More concerning is that the crystals themselves are not as fine. I cannot conduct my own chemical analysis to determine if the ingredients are of lower quality, and my trust in the product has been diminished, so I feel it is necessary to look for another source for this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doctors know it works This product sat in my drawer for some time unused. After hearing vitamin C on a list of products scientifically proven to work, I dug it out and began using it morning and night. I noticed my skin is looking amazing and several people have commented on it. Somehow, it brings out a tan complexion on my skin. I'm using it with simply brilliant and cell ID, Refine every other night and Define. I wash with Purity clean to remove dead cells. The pigment in my skin has cleared up some.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Same price for almost 1oz less!! The original packaging contained .28oz. With the new packaging the price has remained the same but the contents are now .2oz. Thats the kind of maneuvering that really turns customers off. Vitamin C is the cheapest thing in the world to manufacture. At over $50 for less than 3 oz, were their profit margins not big enough?! Greedy.

Hi, what strength L Ascorbic acid would this be equal to? I have a 20% L Ascorbic Acid serum and a 17% cream. How would this compare in terms of percentage strength? Thank you, Michelle

L-ascorbic acid in its crystal state does not oxidize and therefore remains stable as opposed to when it is solubilized in water-based systems. When CosMedix Pure C crystals are mixed with our professional custom mask or one of our serums, the crystals dissolve and then deliver 100% active, unoxidized vitamin C to the skin. When vitamin C is pre-solubilized in formulas, there is a chance that the l-ascorbic acid will become oxidized over time with the exposure to air and other elements in the formula. Therefore, the vitamin C concentration is not as potent each time you use the product. Cosmetic formulas with vitamin C need to be expertly crafted in order to maintain the maximum efficacy of the l-ascorbic acid in the product. All of our CosMedix formulas undergo extensive research to ensure this product stability.

I purchased the Cosmedix Simply Brilliant and the Pure C mixing crystals, when I'm mixing the crystals am I mixing until I cant see the powder form of the crystals anymore? and how many pumps of the serum am I using for my whole face and neck?

Asked by: Anonymous
One full pump should be enough for face, neck and décolleté. Add a shake of the Pure C and yes, blend until dissolved then apply.

Please explain how this form of vitamin C remains stable and is absorbed by the skin. There is a great deal of press about this ingredient, so it is worth researching, but the research shows it is ineffective in many forms and is unstable enough that even good products are not effective for very long.

Can this be used mixed with sunscreen in the sun for a long period of time?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes it can but it will not take the place of any sunscreen, and will not extend the life of sunscreen on skin. Follow manufacturer's direction for proper reapplication of sunscreen.

I bought a Pure C from a online retailer. I noticed there was some sort of packet inside the powder? Is that normal? if so what is it? some sort of anticaking product?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, each container of Pure C should have the non-toxic silica gel moisture absorber inside.
