Want your skin to soak up all the goodness of Vitamin C? Forget oranges, meet Superox-C AF, a skincare ingredient extracted from the Australian superfruit Kakadu Plum containing 100X more vitamin C than an orange!

Skincare buffs have been talking a lot about Vitamin C benefits for skin lately, and we are not surprised why. Vitamin C is proven for rejuvenating dull-looking skin, reducing sagging, and boosting collagen synthesis in the skin. In a world full of eatables abundant in Vitamin C, a brighter skin might seem just an orange away, but what if we tell you we have a better alternative!

Despite high doses of oral consumption of Vitamin C, only a small fraction of it will be biologically available and active in the skin. So, we bring to the table a skincare essential formulated with a superfruit with 100X more vitamin C than an orange! 

Meet Superox-C ™ AF: The Skincare’s New King of Vitamin C

In the past few decades, skincare science has been introduced to a slew of powerful ingredients loaded with enriching, skin-protecting properties. Superox-C™ AF is one of those. Superox-C™ AF is a botanical active ingredient extracted from native Australian Kakadu plum specially designed to provide a topical supply of antioxidants necessary to fight free radical-induced skin ageing. 

Kakadu plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana) is a superfruit native to tropical northern Australia, found specifically around the Aborigines territory of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park. This one-of-a-kind superfruit has devised an intriguing self-defence mechanism to defend itself from harmful UV rays by synthesising the highest amount of vitamin C as compared to any other plant on the planet, along with antioxidant chemicals. Furthermore, studies have shown that Kakadu plum extracts induce the synthesis of pro-collagen I and hyaluronic acid from fibroblasts, balancing the production of free radicals and effectively reducing wrinkle depth and boosting skin radiance. 

Benefits That Superox-C AF Imparts To The Skin

Brightens Your Skin 

Vitamin C is necessary for keeping the skin looking bright and healthy. Research shows that it is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from oxidative stress by neutralising the free radicals that may cause increased production of melanin. Superox-C™ AF prevents post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and brightens the skin by interfering with crucial melanogenesis stages. It inhibits melanin synthesis through downregulation of tyrosinase enzyme activity.

2. Anti-Ageing Effects 

The outer barrier of the skin’s role is to keep moisture in and environmental contaminants out. However, due to ageing and exposure to UV rays, the vital protective barrier is weakened, resulting in an increase in free radical damage (damages skin cells and accelerates ageing). Enriched with antioxidants and polyphenols (mainly gallic and ellagic acids), Superox-C™ AF delivers the advantage of vitamin c and protects the skin from free radical damage caused by sun, pollution and toxins.

3. Improves Skin Redness & Infections

Superox-C™ AF is also helpful for those with inflammatory skin problems or sensitive skin types. The polyphenols, gallic and ellagic acids in Kakadu Plum help improve skin radiance and help to minimise redness caused by sun exposure. Kakadu Plum could also be helpful if your skin is more sensitive towards infections, itching and irritation as it also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.  

4. Maintains Hydration

Various studies have shown that topical application of Vitamin C may help increase skin hydration. Superox-C™ delivers proper hydration to the skin. It also stimulates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and preserves skin’s plumpness. If your skin usually remains dry, you must incorporate a Vitamin C serum in your skincare regimen.

Here’s a simple guide for you to explain how to use this serum in your daily routine. 

How to Use TrueBasics Vitamin C Serum

Are you unsure of where to put Superox-C™ AF in your skincare routine? Let us make it easier for you. It is completely fine to use a Vitamin C serum in both morning and evening. You can apply it after cleansing and toning. However, if you are using it in the morning, do not forget to apply a layer of broad spectrum sunscreen before stepping out of your home. Similarly, even if you are applying it at night, apply sunscreen the next morning. 

To use this serum , take 2-3 drops of the product in your palm and rub with both your hands. Gently massage it onto your face in a circular motion until it is fully absorbed by the skin. However, before going directly on your face with this serum, we would recommend you to take a patch test on your palm. This will help you identify if your skin is likely to have an initial reaction to the product. If a slight irritation persists, then we advise you to not use the product. 

Now when you know about the richest source of Vitamin C in the world, what are you waiting for? Add the goodness of Superox-C™ AF in your daily skincare now!
