Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin C and Citric Acid

Ascorbic Acid – Also known as Vitamin C, is found naturally in citrus fruit: lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruit.

No matter what you call it, this is a superstar ingredient found in all ÈZE creams!

It does so many things, it’s a vital skin care element.

  • Boosts the skin’s natural collagen production
  • Works with Vitamin E synergistically to provide UV photoprotection
  • Fades pigmentation and brown spots

Citric Acid

Also found in citrus fruit, Citric Acid is a member of the alpha hydroxy (AHA) family of molecules. Similar to Vitamin C, Citric Acid has one additional oxygen atom – but different uses.

Citric Acid is used for a wide variety of uses.

It has the ability to adjust the pH of skincare products so that other ingredients work at their fullest potential.

Exfoliates by gently lifting dead skin cells off to leave your skin soft and smooth

Use it regularly to increase skin thickness – especially useful for sun damaged skin

Using products with citric acid should result in smaller pores and a decline in acne

A Gentler AHA than glycolic or lactic acid

Citric Acid forms esters with other ingredients to create a protective coating on the skin that limits how much moisture evaporates from your skin and in turn, promotes hydration. 

Vitamin C is in all of ÈZE's creams: Bonjour, Toujours, Voilà! and Crème de Lune!
