light up - brightening vitamin C booster
- light up -
the light up booster is a modern-day miracle worker.
here’s the deal: we wanted to bring a vitamin C packed booster to mix with your favourite creams and serums, to skyrocket their effects.
but after doing more research on ascorbic acid in its dissolvable form for skincare, the fancy word for vitamin C, it turns out the oxidation of ascorbic acid is the same oxidation that turns copper green, apples brown, and metal to rust.
and just like you don't want to eat brown apples, you don't want oxidized vitamin C in your products, or on your skin. plus we don’t want to sell an ingredient that we know doesn’t work after two weeks (and yes, other people do!).
the alternative? sea buckthorn, the key ingredient in our super packed vitamin C booster.
I read a fancy paper saying that sea buckthorn is the richest source of vitamin C, with ascorbic acid content of up to 2500 mg%. that’s like, a lot.
so if you’re looking for a vitamin c booster that, I don’t know, really works, then light up is your man. packed with anti-oxidants, light up will help your skin look refreshed and lit (I had to go for the cheesy pun).

our boosters are like supplements for your skin. you can add them to your daily regimen as standalone products or mix them with other products to improve their performance. use got it like that anytime of day. mix with serums, creams or masks, and apply to face and neck. or, apply 2-3 drops directly to your skin.
allow to absorb 2-3 min before applying makeup.
