Painted Earth Skin Care sent me the new Optimum 20% Vitamin C With Ferulic Acid Serum to review. I am a huge fan of Painted Earth Skin Care and used the Optimum 18% Vitamin C Serum every day. It is the only skin care regiment I have stuck to for longer than a month. I have been using this serum since being introduced to it over a year ago. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it and have noticed a significant change in how healthy my skin looks. So much so that I rarely ever wear make up anymore.
So, here’s my question: Why change such an amazing product? Right? I mean, if it’s not broke don’t fix it. I never understand that until I became an adult and found products that I fell in love with that were later changed and just never the same. Lucky for you ladies, the Opitimum 18% Vitamin C Serum is still available, however the Optimum 20% Vitamin C Serum with Ferulic Acid is AWESOME!
Since using the new serum I have seen more of a reduction in the sun spots over my face. I wish I had a high resolution camera to show you the difference but they were light but noticeable to begin with. Not light enough to see on my camera. Now I have noticed a big difference even after the difference I noticed with the Optimum 18% Vitamin C Serum.
What is Ferulic Acid? According to Wikipedia: “Ferulic acid is a hydroxycinnamic acid, a type of organic compound. It is an abundant phenolic phytochemical found in plant cell wall components such as arabinoxylans as covalent side chains. It is related to trans-cinnamic acid. As a component of lignin, ferulic acid is a precursor in the manufacture of other aromatic compounds. The etymology is from the genus Ferula, referring to the giant fennel (Ferula communis).”
Did you get that? Yea, me neither!
Basically Ferulic acid is found in the cell walls of plants such as rice, peanuts, wheat, apples and other fruit. Being particularly abundant in amaranth and coffee. The name amaranth comes from the Greek for “the one that does not wither,” as a result of all the ferulic acid presumably. It is an antioxidant that can seek and destroy several different types of free radical. From what I have been told free radicals are what destroys your DNA in your skin causing sun spots and other aging.
Thank you Painted Earth Skin Care again for always bringing us the best! If you have sun spots or other aging signs on your face, neck and chest give this a shot. After it has been absorbed into your skin it won’t be washed off. That means your skin is going to get the benefits from it even if you dance in the rain. I feel confident to go naked on my face every day now.
