Come C the Skin Care That Just Got a Makeover: New Yuja C Dark Spot Clear
In 2016, we launched our Yuja Water C line as a premium brightening moisture skin care line that harnessed the intense glow up powers of Yuja, an Asian citrus fruit (commonly know as Citron) with 3X the Vitamin C as lemon! Vitamin C is essential to the body’s production of collagen, which is a crucial component to building healthy skin, hair and nails. It’s also a potent antioxidant, reducing free radical damage and boosting the body’s immune system.
“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” isn’t the motto around SKINFOOD. We’re constantly tinkering with our formulas, trying to increase the health and efficacy of our products to better serve SKINFOODIES. We kept the best parts of yuja’s intense brightening power and Vitamin C delivery and turbocharged it by adding an intensive blemish care factor.
Back and better than ever, re-introducing SKINFOOD favorite, Yuja C in Dark Spot Clear!
A Squeeze of Yuja to Make You Squee
We use yuja from Goheung, a region of South Korea where the cold winds blow through due to its proximity to the sea, and stimulate the yuja to grow with richer fragrance, bursting with moisture. We use yuja grown with a specially developed natural fertilizer rather than of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. This process is especially important because we want the purest, most powerful yuja so we can distill from it the purest, most powerful skin care.
We use all parts of the yuja, peel to pulp, and we extract both at a low temperature to preserve all its natural nutrients. We then age the extract for 14 days to stabilize and deepen its efficacy. This process amplifies yuja’s natural brightening power, which we combine with Vitamin C derivatives for deep blemish treatment and brightening.
Stressors from the outside environment, like UV rays, penetrate skin’s layers and destabilize it, causing skin’s melanocytes, cells which produce melanin, responsible for the skin’s pigment, to produce melanosomes. Melanosomes are organelles which carry melanin to the surface, creating dark spots, or hyperpigmentation.
Leveling Up Your Skin Requires Good Offense AND Defense
Yuja C Dark Spot Clear's blemish care builds up your skin from the inside out and the outside in by treating each level of skin with different active ingredients.
- Outer level: The active ingredient is niacinamide, a form of Vitamin B-3. Niacinamide helps to rebuild healthy skin cells, treating blemishes that have already formed at this level, and also buffering skin against UV rays. It also kickstarts collagen production, which improves skin tone and repair.
- Middle level: Sodium ascorbyl phosphate, a Vitamin C derivative, and Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate (more commonly known as Licorice Root Extract), a brightening ingredient that double teams to block blemishes from emerging to skin’s surface by treating the blemishes and strengthening skin’s lipid barrier.
