Australian certified organic natural skincare brand Mukti OrganicsVital C Elixir delivers a powerhouse serum designed to help improve skin resilience and firmness while providing antioxidant protection from daily environmental aggressors. Formulated with Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP) that acts as a powerful collagen stimulator in conjunction with Kakadu Plum, the highest bioavailable plant source of Vitamin C. 

To boost the benefits of a vitamin C serum, you might combine with a dermaroller tool at home to enhance product penetration and simultaneously assist with collagen production. When rolled across the skin, Mukti Organics' Micro Dermal Roller's 0.25mm microneedles create very small micro channels on the surface of the skin, enhancing the overall efficacy of serums and moisturisers by 40%. It achieves this by aiding passage to the outer dermal layer and allowing the active ingredients to penetrate, triggering the skin’s natural repair process and the production of collagen and elastin. The result is firmer and plumper skin over time, with enhanced collagen production. Regular use has proven to be effective for uneven skin tone, diminishing light scars and pigmentation. 

Brighten skin and deliver a refreshing pick-me-up with this advanced hydrolysed vitamin treatment. Esthemax's Vitamin Bio Cellulose Sheet Masks contain Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and Niacimide to stimulate skin cells, amplify collagen production, and treat hyperpigmentation. The 100% natural biodegradable biocellulose mask deeply infuses and locks beneficial ingredients into skin.

Suitable for skin experiencing sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.
