I’ve heard good things about Niora’s skin care products in the last few months, especially the Seattle company’s Alpha C Serum. Some vitamin C serums are a bit too harsh for my skin, but I liked what I read about the ingredients in Niora’s products, and decided to give the serum a try. It’s only been a few weeks, but so far I love Alpha C. It seems to work synergistically with my pomegranate seed oil — the combo is producing excellent results.
The serum contains a Vitamin C ester tri-complex (ascorbyl dipalmitate,ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, ascorbic acid polypeptide), along with aloe, jojoba oil, vitamin E, 10% naturally derived alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and a few other important ingredients. My skin can be very sensitive, but I’ve noticed no problems at all after using the serum. It absorbs quickly and has helped my skin retain moisture.
It’s too early to tell if Alpha C will help lighten the ‘age spots’ (hyperpigmentation) on my skin, but I already feel my skin has benefited from the subtle peeling action of the AHAs. Another plus, the company will send you a free vitamin C eye serum with your first order — it’s the only eye-area serum I’ve used in a very long time that does not cause skin irritation or migrate to redden my eyes.
Check back for updates as I continue to test Niora’s products.
