WHY WE LOVE IT
“Vitamin C is such a lauded ingredient for its brightening properties, but it’s so precious and degrades rapidly. This was one of the first serums we formulated to test out our self-activated form factor and show that we could deliver peak potency consistently in every…single…dose.” — Liz Whitman, Founder
10% L-Ascorbic Acid. 5% is clinically proven to have a moderate benefit, so we’re confident that 10% will bring out your bright side.
Replenishes cell moisture, reduces appearance of wrinkles, accelerates wound healing, and helps skin appear plumper, dewier, and more hydrated.
4 MOLECULAR WEIGHTS
High Molecular Sodium Hyaluronate forms a protective yet light film on the skin surface to prevent water loss, and leaves a smooth even layer on skin.
Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate has a smaller molecular weight and absorbs more deeply into the surface layers of the skin to plump and restore the skin from within. This deeper hydration helps ensure “actives” get to where they need to be and also helps with lines and wrinkles itself.
Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate is both hydrophilic and lipophilic which increases skin affinity and “anchors” to skin, which also helps ensure the “actives” work more efficiently and over time and boosts elasticity itself.
Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer is cross-linked to act like a “sponge” or “reservoir” for continuous hydration and longer-lasting overall benefits.
Brightening Boost is best used in the morning. Apply to clean, damp skin and layer underneath moisturizer or SPF.
Your serum is activated when fully dissolved, about 15 seconds of combining the Active Powder with the Hydrator.
Active Powders can be used interchangeably in our Activator with the same Hydrator so you can mix and match your AM and PM routine easily.
Remove Rubber Cap from Dispenser. Place your Globe + Dispenser onto the Bowl with the Dispenser side down. Gently push the Globe down and twist clockwise. You will hear a few small clicks—then a “thunk” at about 90 degrees.
Lift Globe to reveal 1 dose of liquid and 2 piles of powder. Whip it for about 5 seconds until it transforms into a light cream-gel serum. Scoop out all the good stuff and apply to your face and neck.
Your Bowl can be quickly wiped with a tissue between uses or it can be rinsed and left to air dry.
Vitamin C is considered the holy grail to most skin concerns. While vitamin C is known to improve skin’s overall brightness, it also evens skin tone and texture, offsets photodamage, and boosts collagen.
After activating your Superior Serum, scoop out the product and apply liberally to your face and neck.
Apply your vitamin C serum after cleansing the skin. Follow with a moisturizer or SPF.
Yes, during the night your skin is in a repairing mode, and applying vitamin C helps boost its regenerative state while building up the antioxidant defense for the next day.
We encourage you to use vitamin C daily to reap all of its skin-glowing benefits. Because our vitamin C is produced to prevent irritation, you can use it twice a day, once in your AM and PM routine. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend applying it once a day every other day to start, then gradually move to 1x a day, then up to 2x a day.
Yes, you may feel a light tingling. Do not worry, this means the actives in the serum are working.
For those with sensitive skin, it’s best to start off with vitamin C once a day, every other day, and work up to 2x a day as tolerated.
Vitamin C is naturally found in many fruits and vegetables. When used for skincare, vitamin C is synthesized in a lab for purity and consistency.
Never mix vitamin C with AHAs and BHAs. Such a combination might be too active and cause sensitivity or irritations. Also, you shouldn't layer vitamin C with benzoyl peroxide as it may lower the efficacy of vitamin C.
A Superior Serum is the result of activating a pure Active Powder with our Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator. Once the Active Powder is mixed with our Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator, it transforms into a serum with a light gel cream texture and clinically-proven results.
Made fresh in an instant so that your skin can benefit from active ingredients at peak potency.
Powder is the most stable, least degradable format available for potent, delicate actives. Our Pure, potent Active Powders are innovatively designed to quickly and fully activate in under 8 seconds when mixed with our Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator—transforming seamlessly into a silky, light gel cream texture.
Yes, our line of Superior Serums was designed to mix and match so you can use different Active Powders (in their Activator Globes + Dispensers) with the same Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator and Activator Base.
Yes, they can, and product selection is based on the skin concern you most want to improve and benefits you want to see and feel.
All Exponent products are allergy tested for safety. However, alway patch test prior to use to make sure your skin tolerates any new topical skincare product.
The Active Powders each come with 45 doses, and the Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator comes with 90 doses.
The shelf life or full expiration date is currently tested at 2 years. But our formulas from a ‘best if used by date’ never go bad– as in, they deliver the same potency every single dose.
All formulas are considered safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding except the Enzyme/Probiotic Powder as it has willow bark that is standardized for salicylic acid. However, as with any skincare product, we advise those who are pregnant or lactating to consult their physician prior to use.
