Q. How much Vitamin C is in Alpha-Berry Active Vitamin C Serum?
Our Vitamin C Serum gets its Vitamin C content from fruit extracts; Mountain Berry, Kakadu Plum, Acai Berry etc. We do not give our serum a specific vitamin c percentage. This is because the amount of Vitamin C between individual fruits varies and every harvest is unique. In addition studies have shown that, typically, the percentage of synthetic Vitamin C (Think L-ascorbic Acid), decreases in 30-75 days. This means a product may start with a high percentage of Vitamin C (15% for example) but that amount will steadily decrease over a short period of time, regardless of packaging. Whereas, the stable Vitamin C found naturally inside Alpha Berry remains highly potent and active for its lifecycle.
Q. How long do your products last?
Due to our ingredients being mostly certified organic, it is best to use them within 6 months of opening to ensure the extracts perform at their peak.
Q. Does the skincare range contain essential oils or fragrance?
There are no essential oils in our skincare range except for Daily Elements Oil Cleanser (0.5%) and this is due to it being a rinse off product rather than a leave on. Essential oils (think orange, neroli, frankincense etc) can have antibacterial benefits, however most of their components can significantly irritate and damage the skin over time.
Q. In what order do i apply Gracious Minds Skincare?
Skincare should be applied from thinnest to thickest form. After cleansing, replenish your skin with "Beyond the Surface" : Our hydrating and nourishing facial mist. Then follow with hyaluronic acid "Hydra-Marine." Hyaluronic Acid must always go on damp skin in order for it to bind itself to skin cells and work. Then apply our advanced Vitamin C serum: "Alpha Berry" and finish with "Vitamin Sea" or "Photosynthesis" depending on what skin concerns you're focusing on.
