C + Renew Serum is a plant based serum with a high concentration of bio-available Vitamin C that will stimulate a more youthful looking and acting skin. Vitamin C is known to be critical to the development of collagen fibers in the skin, and to help lighten dark and pigmented areas of the skin.
The bio-available form of Vitamin C is called Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (also known as Esterized Vit C or THA). It is a lipid soluble form of Vitamin C that can readily penetrate the lipid barrier of the skin. Naturally, the chirality is the correct L-form of Vitamin C.
The 'carrier' function to deliver the esterized Vitamin C into the skin, is performed by olive and sunflower oils. These are non-comedogenic. Oily skin types can also use this product - see suggested use in 'directions'.
This sensitive skin antioxidant and anti aging serum contains soothing sea whip and intensive ester Vitamin C in an olive and sunflower oil base.
C + Renew also contains the antioxidant carotenoid astaxanthin from microalgae. To learn more about antioxidants see the video 'Antioxidants: Why? in the 'Other Resources' tab.
C + Renew Serum is an amazing anti aging serum that can actually work for sensitive skin.

For external use only.
Apply a small amount daily in A.M. or P.M. after cleansing for level 3 sensitive skin.
For level 2 sensitive skin, apply a small amount 3 days per week (like Mon-Wed-Fri) in A.M. or P.M. on cleansed skin.
Apply on wrinkled and sun damaged skin after Relief and Hydrate serums, but before light moisturizer and sunscreen.
Because this product is rich and emollient due to it's oil base, you may need less moisturizer on the skin after applying the C + Renew.
For oily skin types, apply a small amount of C + Renew to cleansed skin and add a layer of Soothe + Hydrate mask. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes (rehydrate the mask with a little cool water if it dries), then remove with cool water and pat the skin dry with a clean towel.

I've been using the Sensitive Skin Clinic products by Andrew Scoular for about 6 weeks now, and I love the way my skin feels! The two products I can recommend without hesitation are the C + Renew Serum and the Rich + Calm Cream. Both of these products make my extremely dry, sensitive skin feel youthful and smooth.
