Ok, So I had read here on the forum about someone putting vit. C serum on an apple and that it slows down the "aging" of the apple, the browning of it. I decided to do alittle experiment. You will see numbers next to the apple pieces, these refer to:
1 - Candessence C, E Ferulic
2 - Candessence Triple C
3 - PSF Vitamin C serum 12%
4 - Nothing

First pic is 2 hours after I put the serums on the apples:

Next is about 12 hours after:

And, 24 hours after:
Image

Then the last pic at 36 hours after:

I don't know if you can tell but the best looking piece is #1 Candessence C,E Ferulic, the one I use everyday!!! Yeah!!
Although all 3 of the pieces did look good!

I only wish I would have had one of the more expensive C serums, like skinceuticals, or Cellex-C to test along with it. But I didnt!

Oh my gosh--that's so smart! I love seeing the very visible results you got. I'm now doubly glad I ordered a sample of Candy's c-serums.

amylola!
Thanks - nice to see the differences - when I posted about putting Vit C serum on an apple I know a couple of people said any topical would have an effect, while I think that is true to some extent (in the shorter term)this experiment shows that a good Vit C serum can be really effective over a long period of time!
Felt a bit of a weirdo when I posted - I mean how many people test skincare on fruit?! Laughing Glad its not just me!!!LOL! Laughing

Great to see the Vit C & Ferulic had such good results! (I'm using a VitC&Ferulic from Skincarecentral made by GOW so I hope its as good!)

Very Happy

Thanks for posting the interesting results. Can't wait to try Candy's c-serums soon. Now I really wonder how Super Serum compares to Candy's Confused

Great job Amylola. Which of the C and Ferulic do you have, the 10 or 20%? I have the Triple C and I love how radiant it makes the skin appear. Do you feel you get that from the one you use?

TIA,
kimberly

Thanks for sharing amylola. Interesting about CEF versus Triple C - it just confirms what a few knowledgeable people have been saying; that ferulic acid stabilizes L-Ascorbic Acid and thus extends its free radical scavenging functions for a relatively longer period of time.

The Triple C serum would contain a lot more Vitamin C than the CEF serum, but its free radical scavenging fades more quickly when exposed to air.

kimberly - i have the 10% - I use the 10% then after that I use the Triple C. I've only been using them about 2 weeks or so. I am def. noticing a more even tone, I have also been using the Daisy serum from GOW. I am very happy w/the results.

amylola - how are you incorporating the vit c with the daisy serum from GOW? Do you use 1 in the morning and the other at night? That was a great experiment. I have IS Super Serum and Skinceuticals C, E, Ferulic. I think I will try that experiment with those 2 products!

Hmm, i'm a little skeptical that the results were better than triple C.

rileygirl - I use the CE serum then wait a few minutes, use the triple C, then wait about 10 minutes, and use the daisy serum.
Also, if you look at the pics you will notice that all 3 pieces of apple did not turn brown, they all stayed pretty good, just the first one was the most fresh looking. But only by a smidge!

very interesting experiment! I would of course do a few more trials to determine ultimately since the amount applied on each slice could vary as well as other factors....

It's the ferulic acid. Just google "ferulic acid" and "Vitamin C".
