PCA Skin C&E Strength Max is a high percentage corrective day cream that delivers stable and highly effective antioxidants to environmentally damaged skin. It strengthens, smooths, brightens and helps to reduce hyperpigmentation and other visible signs of skin ageing. It also protects the skin from future damage by neutralizing free radicals. Formulated for more sun-damaged skin and those with hyperpigmentation. Not suitable for those with sensitive or rosacea-prone skins.
Key ingredients include L-Ascorbic Acid 20%, a potent antioxidant that is the most bio-available form of pure Vitamin C for the skin; together with Retinyl Palmitate, a mild Vitamin A derivative, it helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and it stimulates collagen and elastin production. It also reduces dullness, promotes an even skin tone and a radiant complexion. Tocopherol 5% (Vitamin E) is a fat-soluble antioxidant vitamin and is an emollient that helps to keep the skin hydrated. Bisabolol, one of the principal active compounds found in chamomile calms and soothes the skin.
Dr Webster’s Recommendations: This fast-absorbing day cream has it all – two well-known antioxidants but one with a high concentration of Vitamin C and a mild Vitamin A to target and correct signs of mature skin ageing and/or hyperpigmentation. It also helps to strengthen the skin and prevent future environmental damage by protecting the skin from free radicals and oxidative stress. This product should not be used by anyone with sensitivity. Some tingling may be felt on application but this is transient and disappears when the product is absorbed. If you have never used an L-Ascorbic product previously, it is best to start with a lower percentage such as the PCA Skin C&E Strength which contains 15% L-Ascorbic Acid. Always use a high factor, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day with this product of the best results.
