IDEAL LIGHT C+ SKIN DEFENDER™ - ANTIOXIDANT + FIRMING EVEN TONE SERUM
Antioxidants are essentials for skin health and beauty. But not all are created equal.
You may have heard of antioxidants, particularly Vitamin C....but not all antioxidant Vitamin C products are created equal. Many are not formulated properly to make the ingredient stable long-term and even those that are, do not penetrate the stratum corneum due to hydrophilic (water-loving) and lipophilic (fat-loving) characteristics of ingredients. What's more, improperly formulated products can increase free radical activities on skin to cause more harm than good.
Ideal Light C+ Skin Defender™ goes beyond conventional antioxidant Vitamin C formulas & combines scientifically proven effective concentrations of pure & potent complex of 15% Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid, Pro-Vitamin B5 & Hyaluronic Acid & breakthrough line smoothing Octapeptide complex - all intensified and ultra-stabilized in a never-before patented carrier system of multiple pathways to efficiently work on different levels of the skin to hydrate, firm, and neutralize free radical damage plus oxidative stress that break down different layers of your skin. Ingredients are kept potent and targeted to provide protection and repair where it matters most.

Anti-Irritation & Skin Strengthening Rescue for Stressed Skin
Created by an esthetician who has battled long-term with acne, eczema, and psoriasis and personally understands struggles with skin issues.
We go beyond “clean” to also be free from naturally-derived & synthetic fragrances, essential oils, and other commonly-used "natural" or synthetic skin irritants and sensitizers
THIS EXCLUSIVE MEDICAL-GRADE FORMULA CONTAINS:
- Aqua/water - improves the performance of hydrophilic ingredients
- L-Ascorbic Acid - the most powerful and most well-studied form of vitamin C shown to provide results. However, it is also known to be extremely unstable, oxidize rapidly, and not suitable for sensitive skin. Our proprietary stabilization and delivery technology address these concerns allowing its powders to help repair and improve the look and feel of photo-damaged skin in terms of lines, pigmentation, and elasticity without the side effects (and the stickiness) often experienced with the leading vitamin C formulas.
- Ethoxydiglycol - solvent allowing for uniform blending of ingredients
- dL-Tocopherol (Vitamin E antioxidant) - based on available research so far, skin scientists believe these have numerous benefits and are essential to skin cells due to their ability to delay damage from free radical activities. These antioxidants have the power to reduce inflammation and attack specific free radicals that cause inflammation. Their antioxidant powers may help reverse damage due to free radicals and potentially prevent wrinkles while making the skin appear more youthful.
- Glycerin - plant-derived hydration booster that is one of the most effective humectants available to draw moisture deep into skin, protecting it from loss of water other harsh products, and helping it look smoother.
- SNAP-8™ - an octapeptide that reduces visible wrinkle depth by destabilizing the SNARE complex in skin that's involved neuronal excitability and facial muscles contractions. tests show that wrinkle depth is visibly reduced by up to 63% within one month of treatment. The face looks smoother as the look of fine lines and expression wrinkles fade. It offers an effective topical alternative for those who do not prefer or invasive procedures.
- Ferulic Acid (antioxidant) - helps reduce the effects of damaging free radicals on the skin and helps in skin’s repair and regeneration activities from environmental damage. It also works to enhance stability and efficacy of other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E.
- Panthenol - also known as pro-vitamin B5, it's a humectant that attracts moisture to the skin and also acts as a skin moisturizer. It helps to soothe and soften skin while helping to promote a stronger barrier to defend against irritation and moisture loss.
- Sodium Hyaluronate - a form of hyaluronic acid that acts as a humectant to attract moisture to the deeper layers of skin helping to reduce dryness, inflammation, and the appearance of lines. Skin looks plumper and smoother.
- PPG/Buteth-26 - used to restore and improves suppleness with conditioning properties that help reduce flakiness and other visible texture irregularities of skin.
- PEG-40 Castor Oil - an emollient to help keep skin soft and help prevent moisture loss from skin.
- Phenoxyethanol - one of the most effective broad-spectrum preservatives to help prevent the growth of fungi, bacteria, yeast, and mold.
- Triethanolamine - used to help balance pH levels so ingredients can work at most ideal pH levels and helps the formula to work best with the natural pH of the skin.
- Sodium Pyrosulfite - a preservative that helps enhance the effectiveness of other preservatives to allow for the most broad-spectrum protection and safety.
