Immortal Brightening Moisturizing Cream
A fine texture facial cream aimed to brighten skin’s tone and improve its uneven pigmentation. The cream contains a few skin beneficial ingredients, quality oils that significantly assist in decreasing water loss from the epidermis, meaning they keep the skin hydrates and more flexible.
But what we really want to know is, can it improve skin’s uneven pigmentation? Well, there is one active ingredient, a stable Vitamin C derivative, which theoretically capable of doing so, but due to the product’s jar package that reveals the formula to oxygen and light, the efficiency of this ingredient reduces dramatically. It will break down, oxidize and so does the rest of the plant extracts and anti-oxidants in the formula.
Moreover, like other products in the series, it contains the immortal oil. There is a paucity of researches to back immortal oil’s properties. What was found is that when it is applied topically, in concentration higher than 0.5%, it can causes irritation.
• Hydrates the skin.
