There's an ever-increasing number of beauty products that are being made with pure Vitamin C, which is notoriously difficult to work with, as well as Vitamin C derivatives that are more stable and resistant to oxidation—and Korean beauty brand Neogen recently released a Vitamin C powder with serum-like benefits.
In the form of a powder, the product is able to provide intense brightening benefits but without the risk of oxidation. To activate the 17% pure Vitamin C, the travel-friendly powder is best mixed with a toner or a watery essence, according to the brand. Due to the potency of its main ingredient, the product is best used without others that contain AHAs, BHAs or retinol, which may cause sensitivity.
Now that Neogen's $20 Real Vita C Powder Lemon has already sold out, it has amassed a 2,000-person waitlist.
