For a visibly brighter and smoother complexion.

Protect against environmental pollutants and premature ageing, help improve the appearance of fine lines and correct age spots with our lightweight and stable 10% Vitamin C + 1% Bakuchiol serum.

In a base of melon seed oil, this lipid antioxidant serum absorbs quickly and leaves a silky soft, non-greasy finish on the skin. 

10% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THDA)

A highly stable oil-soluble form of vitamin C, THDA scavenges the free radicals that are a cause of premature skin ageing, improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation and reduces age spots.

Unlike water-soluble ascorbic acid which begins to degrade immediately on contact with light and air (and can make your skin yellow), THDA is a form of Vitamin C that remains stable throughout the use of this product, so you benefit from every last drop.

It’s also not as irritating as ascorbic acid, making it better tolerated by sensitive skin.

Why THDA is the best form of vitamin C

1% Bakuchiol

With continued use, Bakuchiol has been shown to have a noticeable effect on the skin, including a reduction in wrinkle surface area, pigmentation, elasticity, firmness and overall photodamage. The main advantage of Bakuchiol is that it doesn’t cause peeling and irritation, and it can be used during the day because it does not cause photosensitivity.

We source our Bakuchiol (trade name Sytenol® A) from the manufacturer, Sytheon.

The research showing retinol-like skin benefits was conducted using Sytenol® A. The most notable is a 12-week double-blind clinical study of volunteers using either Bakuchiol or retinol. It found that both groups saw similar results with no statistical difference between the two ingredients. However, the retinol group reported more scaling and stinging.

Bakuchiol: What Is It And What Does It Do?

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate: Choose your Strength

Both our Vitamin C serums contain THDA. Which one you choose depends on the strength that is optimal for your skin. If you're new to vitamin C, start with the lower percentage.

Vitamin C + Bakuchiol - 10% THDA

Vitamin C + Broccoli - 20% THDA

Although it's not a substitute for daily sun protection, Vitamin C + Bakuchiol provide protection against oxidative damage, which is why we recommend using this serum in the morning.

Press 2-3 drops of Vitamin C + Bakuchiol Serum onto your skin after applying water-based serums. Or mix a few drops with your moisturiser.

Keep away from direct sunlight. Store the bottle in a cool, dark place. Best used within six months of opening.

I have been using Kri for some years now. This serum is a fabulous addition to my morning routine. I just mix it with my Endless moisturiser and it leaves my skin feeling good all day. Well recommended

Like all Kri facial oils - it's gorgoeus!

Another lovely facial oil from Kri. I like them all so much that I have them all and I alternate, sometimes adding a few oils together. The Kri oils don't leave your face greasy like you may think they would. They absorb quickly and that's on top of using Kri Hydrate Serum, then Illume Serum, Endless moistruriser and then I lock in the moisture with the oil, and it all absorbs nice and quick.

Love this product

On my 3rd bottle now - so, I guess I really like it. A little goes a long way & it provides a richly moisturising skin cover without feeling heavy. Skin feels soft and nourished, without any tightness or dryness. It makes a great base for my moisturiser too. Vit C products can often be tingly or irritate skin, but not this one. Can't really say if my menopausal skin looks better, but it certainly feels much more comfortable.

Great for Sensitive Skin

I have sensitive skin but am experiencing no issues at all with this serum. Skin feels soft and healthy, moisturized but not greasy. Will stick to this product and am excited to see how it works for me in the long term.

Small but effective

This is a lovely product to use and makes my skin look better, so I will be repurchasing!

The gentlest and best vitamin C I’ve ever tried

I have extremely hypersensitive skin, to the point that I usually end up giving away about 95% of the skincare products I try from other companies, because it’s made my skin sting a lot or irritated it. This is the first Vitamin C (or actually, product with any actives in it), that my skin has been able to tolerate. I am over the moon! I think the fact that it’s in a gentle oil base also helps (as water & watery products tend to irritate my skin too). The vitamin C itself is also really gentle. I love the fact there’s Bakuchiol in it too, which is super gentle as well. It never stings my skin. It makes my skin brighter. I just love it and will be buying it for years to come! Thank you :)

Luxury in a jar

This is my all time favourite product. The oil is rich and glides onto my skin but is easily absorbed for that soft, smooth finish. My skin drinks it in and is never left feeling greasy. Its a bit of magic in a jar. A tiny bit goes a long way too so it lasts ages. What's not to love.

Love this serum

I'm so pleased I've found this serum with Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. This is the best form of Vitamin C (as L-ascorbic can oxides quickly and not stable). Plus there is Bakuchiol in this serum which is another good oil and safe to use around my eyes (I don't want to use retinol under my eyes as it can irritate and dry my skin). After using it, my skin is hydrated and smoother. Amazing serum!
