Whether you’re skincare-curious or have your routine down to a science, you know Vitamin C has some major perks. But what exactly does it do, and what makes Kat Burki’s STAY C different? We’re here to tell you everything you need to know, and make some recommendations along the way.

Vitamin C: The Basics.

There’s a reason our Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream is one of our all-time best-sellers. That one little ingredient packs on the benefits. Most notably is its antioxidant properties. Not only does Vitamin C help fight inflammation, but it protects the skin from free radicals and pollution. Trust us, that’s not just needed for our city girls out there. Free radicals also get introduced via UV light, so anytime the sun hits your face, your skin is losing Vitamin C. That’s why we developed skincare to replace it. And with the addition of reishi mushrooms, Vitamin E, and rosehip, it’s absorbed quicker and easier.

Even More Benefits.

As if all that antioxidant superpower wasn’t enough, there’s more to Vitamin C than just that. If you’re looking for the best vitamins for dry skin, look no further. Strong enough to offer a deep surge of moisture, but light enough for AM and PM use, it's the perfect everyday moisturizer. But the benefits still don’t stop there. Vitamin C plays a unique role in collagen synthesis, so it helps replenish your skin’s elasticity, evens out its tone, and brightens up dark spots and overall complexion. That’s one multi hyphenate ingredient.

Going The Extra Mile.

So what makes Kat Burki’s Vitamin C products special? It’s all about STAY C. That’s our signature stabilized formula that makes sure you’re getting the most out of all those amazing benefits. Just as UV rays strip your skin of Vitamin C, heat strips a skin care formula of its potency. That’s why, in addition to being completely vegan, all of our products are made with a cold-pressed process, keeping the strength of the ingredients at peak performance. Finally, we use a water soluable form of Vitamin C that is only activated when absorbed, meaning even more potency remains intact.

Something For Everyone.

With such a plethora of perks, and a powerful signature formula, you may be asking yourself, “Is Vitamin C right for my skin type?” The answer is yes. It's perfect for skin that’s oily, dry, sensitive, combination, aged, you name it. While the benefits of Vitamin C have been known and overlooked for a long time, it’s only in recent years did brands like ours give it the attention it needs. Now we’ve centered it in an effective, manageable skincare routine with improved formulas and efficacy.
