What is the shelf-life of this product when used daily? Does this product become yellow like other Vitamin C products?
The shelf-life of this serum has been tested and certified to be 12 months from production date. This product boasts the most advanced formula of stable bio-available Vitamin C: the Stay C 50® formula. This means that while the natural properties of the product are retained, the product is prevented from oxidizing (expiring) rapidly. The process of “yellowing” of the product is exactly the effect of oxidation which occurs when Vitamin C is left exposed to air. Therefore the stable formula of Kleem Organics® Vitamin C Serum remains fresh and effective for its whole duration of its shelf-life. Secondly, thanks to the airless bottle, oxygen and bacteria are not allowed to come in contact with the product at any stage therefore ensuring the product’s freshness and sterility.
What is the percentage of Vitamin C?
This product has 20% Vitamin C content inside it. 20% has been scientifically proven to be the ideal content of Vitamin C for all skin types. (Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, 2006). At this percentage of Vitamin C, researchers found an increased production of both Type I and Type II collagen, both of these types of collagen are important for youthful skin.
What type of quality moisturizer would you suggest to use with this product?
When it comes to your skin-care routine, it’s easy to get frustrated or confused as we don’t often know if a particular product interacts positively or negatively with other brands or if it’s been specifically designed for your skin type without the risk of irritating it.
That’s why we developed our newest Advanced 2.5% Retinol Moisturizer which highly potentiates and complements the anti-aging effects of the vitamin C serum for quicker results, through the active combination of their ingredients.
A powerful complex of Vitamin C, E, combined with 2.5% Retinol (vitamin A) and Hyaluronic Acid smoothens and evens the skin tone to restore a healthy glowing skin, increasing the skin firmness and elasticity for a more youthful look.
Kleem Organics Advanced 2.5% Retinol Moisturizer is essential for repairing the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals, responsible for 90% of skin aging, that are over produced especially in this time of the year, when the Sun rays are more powerful.
APPLICATION OF THE PRODUCT
Can you use this product around your eyes?
Even though this product is safe to use even on the most sensitive parts of the face, we would still recommend that you pay particular attention when you use it close to the eyes and especially avoiding vulnerable areas such as eyelids. Having said this, this serum
contains Witch Hazel which has Vitamin H inside which in turn helps reduce puffiness around the eyes! We would recommend to use your ring finger when you apply the serum around the most sensitive areas of the skin because it exerts less pressure on your skin. Hence, not only is it safe to apply around the eyes but also improves the skin condition in that area too!
Do I need to use a moisturizer before applying makeup?
This enriched Vitamin C Serum contains many ingredients which retain and increase the natural water content of the skin. Among these we find Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba Oil, Aloe and Witch Hazel. However, some skin types require more hydration than others and hence some clients opt to use a moisturizer to increase their skin water content. In the case the client opts to use a moisturizer, we do recommend to apply makeup AFTER the serum and moisturizer have both been applied.
Can I use this product after having used the derma roller?
The function of a derma roller is to micro-puncture the skin to stimulate the natural healing process to produce more collagen which in turn stimulates the renewal of skin cells more rapidly. Inevitably, when the skin is punctured and the Vitamin C serum is applied, its rate of absorption is higher, hence its effect on the skin is more pronounced. In cases of people with sensitive skin however, since the skin is actually damaged when the derma roller is applied (due to the micro-punctures), a slight discomfort and redness has been reported.
Also watch out for the Kleem Organics® Derma Roller that is shortly going to be available on the market.
Is this serum for night time?
For best results, use this serum twice a day, morning and evening just before going to sleep. By applying it before bed time you are giving the serum the best chance to be absorbed well by the skin and acts throughout the night to repair damage to the skin due to free radicals, heals micro wounds in the skin, tightens skin pores in oily types of skin and renews the skin by replacing old and worn cells by completely new skin cells. It is scientifically proven that the pores of the skin are also more open at night, hence able to absorb the serum better and at a deeper level. Hence, while you are asleep, the serum is busy working to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin. This can be easily appreciated in the morning when you wake up and feel a soft silky skin and a radiant look when you first look in the mirror. Hence, don’t forget to apply Kleem Organics enhanced Vitamin C serum at night time for a positive surprise in your appearance the next morning!
USES OF THE PRODUCT
Does it help with discolorations in the skin on the face?
The main ingredient of this product is Vitamin C. This is a powerful anti-oxidant which means a chemical that limits the formation of free radicals that are produced in the skin by harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun, smoking and environmental pollutants amongst others. These free radicals are one of the main causes of discolorations in the skin. Hence, Vitamin C, together with other antioxidants found in Kleem Organics® Vitamin C Serum such as Vitamin E, Aloe Vera and Ferulic Acid make it one of the top skin care products fighting against discolorations on the face.
How long does it take for spots to disappear?
The serum is enriched with numerous antioxidant agents such as Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid and Aloe Vera among others. Hence every time it is applied to the skin, neutralization of free radicals is occurring at a cellular level apart from providing a barrier on an external level to prevent further free radicals from forming due to exposure to harmful sun rays or pollutants. This enhances the process of reduction of age spots to take place at an accelerated rate. Therefore, even though results vary from one individual to another, one may notice a gradual fading of age spots after a brief period of time, typically after about two weeks. We do however recommend product users to be consistent in the use of the serum and use it twice daily, in the morning and in the evening to give their skin the best chance to get results from the product.
Can this be used on other parts of the body?
Indeed! Since they are areas not covered by clothing, the face, neck and the area on the back of the hand are more exposed to sun rays and environmental pollutants, hence are more vulnerable to signs of aging. Therefore, for that much sought-after youthful look, in order to improve and even prevent fine wrinkles and discolorations, we do recommend that this product is used on the areas mentioned above for best results.
Does this product work on African-American skin?
Absolutely! This product is suitable for all types of skin and even people with an increased amount of melanin in the skin as in the Afro-American race can use the product freely and can expect to see the same benefits as in those people with skin that contains less melanin.
Does this work for men?
Kleem Organics® Vitamin C Serum is a unisex product that produces beneficial effects in everyone’s skin. The basic composition of men’s and women’s skin is very similar and Kleem Organics® Vitamin C Serum has been found beneficial for all skin types. It is also advisable for people of all ages, starting from adolescents with oily, acne-prone types of skin to those with maturing skin showing signs of aging such as wrinkles or discolorations. It is advisable for men whose occupations expose them more to the sun as this product works wonders to prevent the harmful effects of the Ultra-Violet rays. For smokers, it is invaluable in reversing the negative effects of smoking on the skin by neutralizing free-radicals caused by cigarette smoke thanks to its strong anti-oxidant properties.
Is this product useful for people of all ages?
It is indeed, and depending on the age of the person, this serum has particular beneficial effects for the skin. In adolescents with acne-prone skin, this serum serves as an astringent, tightening the pores and helping the skin remain free from bacteria, thereby preventing the formation of further acne. For people exposed to the sun and environmental pollution, or even for smokers, this product is invaluable because it stops the formation of free radicals caused by ultra-violet rays of the sun and pollution. For people in middle-age or beyond, it rehydrates the skin and regenerates new skin cells, thanks to its collagen-stimulating properties, replacing older cells to give the skin a wonderful, radiant, youthful look.
