Key Ingredients and Benefits

BIOMIMIC™ Vitamin C + Ferulic serum provides you with a nature-inspired, broad-spectrum UV-radiation protective formula.


Research has shown a combination of 15% L-ascorbic acid, ferulic acid, and vitamin E to be the ideal antioxidant blend for skin protection. These are natural substances that actively participate in treating and preventing photoaging.


BIOMIMIC™ Vitamin C + Ferulic acid is packed with the below key ingredients:

L-Ascorbic Acid 15% Skin Benefit

1.

WHY DID WE USE IT:

Vitamin C is the gold standard in antioxidants. L-ascorbic acid is the purest form of Vitamin C, and highly concentrated at 15% in BIOMIMIC™ Vitamin C + Ferulic acid. 

2.

It helps neutralize free radicals to protect against oxidative stress and provides visible anti-aging benefits. It has been carefully formulated to ensure stability, absorption & efficacy.

  • SKIN BENEFITS:

  • Helps fight against free radicals & provides broad-spectrum environmental protection
  • Helps even pigmentation and skin tone
  • Brightens and boosts glow
  • Broad spectrum antioxidant

Vitamin E Skin Benefit

1.

WHY DID WE USE IT:

This pure form of vitamin E neutralizes free radicals and replenishes skin lipids. It has been proven to act synergistically with vitamin C. 


Vitamin E has a thick and oily consistency, which helps in nourishing dry or normal skin. High concentrations are found in nuts and seeds.

  • SKIN BENEFIT:

  • Nourishes dry to normal skin
  • Helps fight against free radicals

Ferulic Acid Skin Benefit

1.

WHY DID WE USE IT:

Ferulic acid helps neutralize free radicals and complements the antioxidant benefits of vitamins C and E to combat the signs of ageing. This powerful antioxidant can be found in rice grain, among other plants.

  • SKIN BENEFITS:

  • Helps fight against free radicals & provides broad-spectrum environmental protection 
  • Enhances the stability of other antioxidants, mainly vitamins C and E

How to use:

BIOMIMIC™ Vitamin C + Ferulic is best applied in the morning, after cleansing.


Dispense 3-4 drops into the palm of your hand and then apply to your face.


Add another 3-4 drops if you will also be applying to your neck and chest.

The Science of Biomimicry

Plants and other animals have constant sun exposure. How come they don’t face radiation damage? Take corn bran as an example; it has a tremendous heat-resistance capacity.


The secret lies in its abundant ferulic acid content. This chemical constituent cross-links membrane molecules and strengthens cellular structure in the face of harmful radiations.


Apart from this, other animals and plants make vitamin C to fight UV-induced damage. Humans have undergone mutation in a gene that regulates the expression of L-glucono-gamma lactone oxidase enzyme (2, 3). 


The lack of this enzyme has resulted in our inability to generate vitamin C.


BIOMIMIC™ Vitamin C + Ferulic Acid serum fills this space. It follows the strategy of nature to provide you a comprehensive UV-protection.


UV Radiation - Free Radicals (ROS)

UV Radiation waves are potent ionizers because they have high energy. They are capable of disrupting cellular structures and produce free radicals. In turn, these free radicals amplify the interference by making attachments with random molecules of skin’s structural units. They initiate enzymes that degrade extracellular matrix proteins and cause wrinkling.


UV Radiation - Genetic Mutations

UV-B radiation tends to mutate DNA in genes by breaking the bonds of thiamine based in its molecule. This mutation has a carcinogenic effect and the potential of causing skin cancer (1). 


Another genetic mutation caused by UV-radiation is the oxidation of guanine, which results in 8-oxo guanine formation. This DNA alteration speeds up aging and photo-damage.

UV Radiation - Hyperpigmentation

Your body produces melanin in response to UV-B exposure to protect skin from damage (1, 2). But excessive melanogenesis by melanocytes leads to freckles and age spots. Sun exposure also results in redness and dull skin. 


Ingredients such as the combination of Vitamins C, E and ferulic acid have been shown to break down melanin clusters for a clearer complexion.
