Vitamin C Serum


We are all silently on the hunt for that 'next big thing' that promises to be the answer to all our skincare prayers: glowing skin!

But sometimes, the hero ingredient isn't a new discovery but a trusted ally presented in a superior form. Introducing Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP) — the more stable, more fabulous version of Vitamin C.

This wonder ingredient is revolutionizing face routines everywhere and we at Akuwa Skincare are here to give you the complete guide on why it should be the cornerstone of your daily skin care routine for glowing skin.

The Science of SAP: More Than Just a Vitamin C Serum

SAP or Soduim Ascorbyl Phosphate might sound like a chemistry experiment, but it's actually a gentler, more stable form of Vitamin C. This power-packed ingredient penetrates the epidermis effectively at a non-irritating pH level around 7.0.

Unlike its acidic relatives, SAP stays friendly with your skin's natural pH balance, meaning you get all the antioxidant benefits without the redness and tingling. And here's the kicker: it's just as effective. SAP keeps on working its magic long after other forms of Vitamin C have given up, making it a superhero in the world of serums.

Research from 2005 has shown that 1% SAP has a strong antimicrobial activity on acne causing bacteria and it also showed on people that 5% SAP can strongly improve the inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions of acne vulgaris.₁ Another double-blind study from 2009 showed that  5% SAP reduced the inflammatory lesions by 20.14% and 48.82% within 4 and 8 weeks respectively.₂

In summary, what does this mean for your skin? It's simple: SAP helps fight acne, fade pigmentation, and give your skin that sought-after radiance. It's stable, doesn't irritate, and still packs a punch against skin enemies like dullness and aging.

SAP's Role in Your Skin Routine

Integrating SAP into your good face routine is a breeze. Imagine a skincare routine that’s as satisfying as your morning coffee. It's a morning ritual that whispers promises of brightening and protection throughout your day.

Whether you're crafting a face routine for women or anyone who values their skin, SAP-infused serums like our Elite Glow Serum fit right in.

After cleansing, a few drops of our Elite Glow Serum with SAP prepare your skin to absorb the full spectrum of benefits from your moisturizers and other serums. Apply it after cleansing and before moisturizing to lock in its benefits. Plus, it plays well with SPF — the ultimate daily defense.

It’s your skin’s best ally, working tirelessly to fade dark spots and keep your complexion as vibrant as your spirit. SAP works in harmony with moisturizers and other serums, amplifying their effects and ensuring your skin gets the most out of your clean ingredients.

If you are ready to say hello to hydration, farewell to fine lines, and embrace a glow that doesn't quit, shop our elite glow serum here.
