No matter how amazing your look is, sometimes a change is just what you need to add a renewed spring to your step. That’s why we’re pleased to report that one of our salon favourites, Ultraceuticals Ultra C23 Firming Concentrate, has just undergone a makeover of its own! This star product has glammed up with improved ingredients to offer your skin even more benefits.
What’s the difference between the old Ultraceuticals Ultra C23 Firming Concentrate and the new formula?
If the Ultra C23 Firming Concentrate is already part of your skincare arsenal, you know that it acts as an extremely powerful anti-aging tool. Developed specifically to improve the dermal renewal process and improve your skin’s resilience, this light-weight product also protects the skin from the free radical damage we encounter every day.
The star ingredient of this age defying formula is 23% pure Vitamin C, delivered via a CSIRO developed system along with the peptide Microelastin. This combo dramatically improves skin elasticity and firmness, while brightening the skin for a more radiant appearance. Ultraceutrals Ultra 23 Firming Concentrate is paraben free and non-comedogenic, which makes it perfect for sensitive and acne prone skin.
For best results, the skin should be prepped with C10 and the product applied to the face and neck on alternative days, building up to daily use if no sensitivity occurs.
What about the new formula?
Even an impressive formula can be improved upon. Now, this already powerful age-defying concentrate has been reformulated to deliver both the Microelastin peptide and the Micro Collagen Peptide. The re-released Ultra C23+ will also bring a sense of luxury to your skincare routine, feeling like velvet as it melts gently into your skin.
How do peptides work?
Essentially, peptides are chains of amino acids. These chains send messages that stimulate cell function. Bio-mimetic peptides are proteins that carry several amino acids attached to a single carrier molecule in order to improve and increase skin absorption. The better the absorption, the more effective the product.
The Microelastin peptide is a fragment of human elastin that encourages the natural dermal repair process. This visibly improves skin damage brought on by aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity. This peptide works in tandem with the Micro Collagen peptide, which in turn boosts the synthesis of collagen to restore the structure of the skin, increasing the thickness and minimising wrinkles.
This powerful duo ensures that your skin is in the best state possible to rest, renew and fight the signs of aging.
The Ultraceuticals Ultra C23+ Firming Concentrate works effectively on all skin types, from dry to sensitive skin. We particularly recommend it for individuals who require a higher percentage of Vitamin C to combat the signs of aging (including loss of firmness, dullness and photo aging). Ultra C23+ fans report not only smoother skin, but also a revitalised, brighter complexion.
Unlike the previous formula, the new and improved Ultra C23+ concentrate doesn’t require you to prep your skin with Ultra C10+ for increased absorption. Simply apply to the face and neck, alternating between morning and evening for 4 weeks, then building up to daily application.
If you loved the old Ultra C23 product, the new formula will blow you away. And if you’ve never tried this multi-tasking miracle worker, now is the time to treat your skin and jump aboard the Ultra C23+ bandwagon!
