Brightening & Glow. Helps in repairing the skin from Sun Damage & Pollution Damage.
It does not sting.
Vitamin C is one of the most effective & proven ingredients in skincare. Let this gel reveal your best skin. We use Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate pH 6, which is less irritating and more stable. While traditional vitamin C serums use (L-Ascorbic Acid pH of 3.5) which can irritate sensitive skin and is less stable.
Product Size: 20ml
This Formula is now UNSCENTED, It means it doesn't have any essential oil or fragrance added to it. The smell may not be very pleasant but it isn't unpleasant either.
Antioxidants are more stable together than alone. A combination of Sodium Ascorbyl phosphate, Ferulic Acid, Tocopherol(Vit E), and Curcumin work in synergy to give radiant skin.
Curcumin is a strong antioxidant and has shown UV-B Protective properties. It helps with tanning due to sun exposure.
Ferulic Acid is found in Rice Bran. It has strong antioxidant properties.
Gotu Kola is a skin rejuvenator. It helps with refining skin texture. It also helps with Sun Damage.

Using it in the mornings ensures maximum efficiency as it reduces and reverses sun damage. Follow up with a moisturizer. We suggest using it on a damp skin for better penetration.
In the evening use an Exfoliating serum + Moisturiser for glowing skin.
If you are using both Exfoliating Serum and want to also use Anti Oxidant serum, first apply Exfoliating Serum, wait for 30 min and apply Anti Oxidant Serum
How to avoid reaction with water based serums?
Add 1-2 drops of Squalane to the water based serums and apply. When skins' barrier is damaged, skin can be quick to react. Skin has very small dry cracks, they needs emollients(oils) to fill up those cracks. If actives are applied to such cracks then irritation can occur. Its best to apply light non problematic emollients like squalane first and then apply water based serums on top. Your actives will work slower this way but you wont take chances with irritation. Alternatively add 1 drop of Squalene to water based products and apply.
Please store below 30C or keep it in the fridge
1. Can be used in combination with Niacinamide, because Sodium Ascorbyl Phospate (the form of Vit C) goes well with Niacinamide.
2. You can combine with HA Serums
3. You can add a few drops to your moisturiser.
4. After AHA or BHA pls wait for 10 min before you apply this serum.
Sun sensitivity & Vit C Serums
1. Doesn't cause any sensitivity so can be used in the morning. Can be used by all skin types.
2. Some skin types may darken slightly due to actives during sun exposure, in such case use it in the night regime.
3. Using it in the morning gives best results in terms of collagen degradation.
Vit C + Moisturiser
1. This Vit C serum is not a moisturiser. Hence use of moisturiser is necessary.
2. Using it with only gels like aloe vera gel can be drying to your skin. so follow up with a proper cream instead of gels only.
3. If you prefer to use only Gel-based moisturiser or Aloe gel you can add 1-2 drops of Squalane to the gels and use as a moistruiser.
4. This is important if your skin is combination or dehydrated.
Vit C can accelerate skin cell turnover. Hence you may face slight purging initially, esp Acne-prone skin.
As active ingredients speed up skin cell formation, which means that underlying blocked pores are coming to the skin's surface. This is called skin purging. This may end within 2 to 4 weeks. After that, your skin will be clear.
Start slow. Use 1 drop added to your moisturiser if you have reactive skin.
Vitamin C and Color Change
The formula of our Antioxidant Serum is very stable as we use Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, which is stable for 6-9months. We also use a combination of antioxidants( Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid and Curcumin) to make it more stable. We make products in small batches thereby ensuring that fresh batch is sent to you everytime. Please note that there will be a slight color change with Vitamin C serum. Please store the serum in fridge.
Color: Translucent cream color to pale yellow
For oily skin, it's suitable
For combination skin, it's suitable
For dry skin, it's suitable just make sure to moisturise well
Very bad product my skin get black
What has happened, after face wash you have changed the formulation for this also. Has gone through bottles of vitamin c serum and face wash but the changed formulation is just not so working. Latest vitamin c purchase gave so bad reaction which never happened before. Waiting for your team to restore the original formula of both face wash and vitamin c serum.
Initally the Vit C serum worked fine and I wanted to use it for longer in order to test its efficacy. But the product turned yellow within just a few days of opening it despite having kept it in dark and did not leave it open for a long time. I am quite disapointed.
Hi Sumana, we have advised everywhere, even on our website to keep our AO serum in the fridge.
I don't know about its visible results bcz I don't notice any but yes I can say that it is hydrating my skin and keeping my skin clean means doesn't make it oily.....but still I m looking for some visible change in my pimple scars nd all....hope for the best
We find that it works best when you apply it along with moisturising products. Adding squalane can help with moisturisation. And hence actives can work better.
I think this would be the best product of suganda...it faded my pigmentation, smoothened my skin.. amazing product... I'm into my 3rd bottle... Mandatory in my skin care routine...

Hey.. I am 29 and my skin type is oily.. I have few acne spots left from my old breakouts and I use a glycolic peel 6% at night and during day I just use aloe Vera gel.. What can I try for acne marks and clear skin from your product range? I already use a salicylic acid 2% face wash
You can use our White Lotus Moisturiser + Antioxidant Serum (10% Vit C)
Antioxidant Serum can help dark spots and scars due to Vit C and Centella in it. But for deep pitted scars removal go for Lasers.
I have pigmentation around my mouth and forehead area. Will usage of anti oxidant serum is effective for that and how to use it?
Pigmentation or acne around mouth are hormonal. So managing stress, diet, sleep, exercise helps.
Also Yes Vit C helps reduce the existing pigmentation, It takes 2-3 months to show atleast 50% reduction.
meanwhile work towards reducing hormonal issues, without which skin can darken again.
