Sanitas Vita C Serum Review

Hi All,

If you ask any dermatologist what their top 3 must have products are Vitamin C based serum would probably make the list! We all are aware of the health and skincare benefits of Vitamin C. It's an antioxidant which helps to fight the free radicals that are often triggered by sun exposure and pollution. It also helps to stimulate collagen production which in turn helps the skin to stay firm and youthful! Research has shown it also helps with dark spots and hyperpigmentation! 

Unfortunately not all Vitamin C serums are stable, in fact the most common form of vitamin c serum on the market are made from L-Ascorbic Acid which is highly unstable in nature and loses its effectiveness once exposed to air or light, also it's quite acidic in nature which can cause irritation and inflammation on the skin. Another problem is that not all Vitamin C ingredients are oil soluble ie they will only work on the surface of the skin and not penetrate the epidermis where it can stimulate collagen production.

Since my skin could not tolerate L-Ascorbic Acid and would always end up having congestion I went looking for other vitamin c options and came across Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate , an oil soluble form of vitamin C which is stable and non-irritating on the skin! During my research I came across Sanitas Vita C Illuminating Serum which has Tetrahexyldecyl Ascrobate as the second ingredient so I knew the % would definitely be very high! 

Sanitas skincare uses Biogenic science ie they use active ingredients which are natural but found in biology and in the skin as well. If you look at their ingredient lists, the formulation is very simple and straightforward with not huge list of ingredients and that was one of the things which attracted me towards this line as it's free of any unnecessary fillers! So you get what you pay for! 

Sanitas Vita C serum has whopping 30% of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate which is the highest amount of THA I have ever seen in a serum yet! The serum is housed in a beautiful glass bottle with a dropper, it's definitely on heavier side but it's travel friendly as well. The serum is clear oil based but has a nice slip to it. I use 3-4 drops directly after my acid toner and its enough for both face and neck. 

Full Ingredients List: Squalane, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Safflower Oil/palm Oil Aminopropanediol Esters, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Theobroma Grandiflorum (Cupuau) Seed Butter, Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D), Palm Alcohol, Lecithin, Phytosteryl Canolate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil.

Results:- I have been using this serum for quite sometime now and really really love the results! With regular everyday use my skin definitely appears more brighter and radiant. The complexion has evened out and even deep scars have lightened up. My skin had become quite dark and dull during the course of my pregnancy but with using this everyday for past few months my skin is now in much better place! Not only it helps to fight the free radical damage caused by sun exposure, due to its oil soluble capabilities it penetrates deeper into epidermis and helps to stimulate collagen which I believe has helped to lighten the pigmentation and plump up the scars making them not that visible! The ingredients are pretty impressive too with first ingredient being Squalane, followed with Safflower oil which is high in linolenic acid, murumuru seed butter from brazil and cupuau seed butter contain essential fatty acids to keep the skin moisturized and strengthen the skin barrier. 

This serum is also very moisturising on its own due to the inclusion of butters and oils, it has never clogged my pores or caused any kind of irritation or congestion. There is absolutely no redness and inflammation which would occur whenever I used a higher dosage of L-Ascorbic Acid based serum. It's the most gentle yet most effective form of Vitamin C out there so if you have sensitive skin or even your skin reacts badly to L-Ascorbic based Vit C serums, give this a try! 

It retails for 99$ for 30ml, since you just need 3-4 drops per use, it lasts quite long time, I have been using mine everyday for past couple of months and still got quite a lot left! Plus you can always get 20%-25% off from Dermstore, Pharmaca , PremierLook or EDCSkincare :)

Hope this review was helpful, if you have any questions please feel free to leave them below.

Stay blessed and stay beautiful!
