  • C+C Serum is a 15% vitamin C serum featuring two forms of vitamin C plus CoQ10 to help brighten, smooth, and firm your skin.

  • Vitamin C is one of the most powerful skincare ingredients you can get without a prescription. It can:

    • Scavenge and neutralize free radicals
    • Increase collagen production
    • Fade hyperpigmentation

    However, the form of vitamin C that’s easiest for your skin to use, L-ascorbic acid, is also extremely unstable, breaking down quickly when exposed to water, heat, or light. That’s why most vitamin C serums turn orange and need to be replaced often.

    C+C Serum uses 10% L-ascorbic acid, but rather than introducing elements that cause it to degrade, we’ve suspended it in a lightweight silicone formula away from water, heat, and light. That means it’s stable on your shelf for a full year. We also added 5% ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, an oil-soluble form of vitamin C, which complements L-ascorbic acid’s water solubility.

    To up the ante, we added another incredibly powerful antioxidant, Coenzyme Q10 (otherwise known as ubiquinone) to make sure no free radical is left un-scavenged. Bisabolol, a key component of German chamomile, helps soothe and calm skin.

    Put it all together and you’re left with an incredibly potent yet non-irritating antioxidant serum to help brighten, smooth, and firm your skin.

    C+C Serum does not have a pH because it’s an anhydrous (water-free) product.

    Like all Stratia products, C+C Serum is unscented, gimmick-free, and formulated based on hard science.

  • We chose C+C's vitamin C percentages to hit that sweet spot: effective but not irritating. That means it's perfect for even sensitive skin. Since C+C Serum's silicone base evaporates away, it's lightweight, non-greasy, and suitable for all skin types.
