  • Stable
  • Potent
  • Silky smooth texture

WATERLESS SUSPENSIONS

Because of the lack of water, these formulas are stable; however, because the Vitamin C crystals are not dissolved, they tend to feel sandy or gritty, and can ball up when used with other products.

  • Potent
  • Silky smooth texture

OTHER WATERLESS SOLUTIONS

These formulas are stable and smooth, but are unable to deliver higher concentrations of Ascorbic Acid (15%+).
