Antioxidant superstar Vitamin C has been used at a concentration of 16% and paired with two other outstanding antioxidants, Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid. The combination of antioxidants has been shown in studies to potentiate the power of the Vitamin C.

This is a standout product that delivers exceptional brightening, firming and clarifying benefits.

Why Pestle & Mortar Vitamin C 2 Phase Serum?

Innovative dual-chamber technology mixes three forms of water-based Vitamin C with an oil base just prior to application.

This keeps the Vitamin C potent and stable, while also enhancing its penetration.

The clever bottle blends the two formulations and dispenses the perfect dose just prior to use.

At last, all the benefits of Vitamin C without the downsides of instability, oxidisation and irritation!

The Pestle & Mortar Vitamin C 2 Phase Serum visibly smooths fine lines, firms the skin and brightens the complexion.

Why is Vitamin C important?

Collagen is the main structural component of skin and is found in the dermis.

As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and our existing collagen is degraded by UV exposure and other factors. Our skin starts to lose its structure and suppleness from our mid-20s. Wrinkles and sagging are two obvious signs of this loss.

Vitamin C is necessary for the production of collagen in the body. Incorporating Vitamin C into your skin care routine helps fight free radical damage, preserves existing collagen and promotes collagen production.

Vitamin C is a great way to retain smooth, supple and even-toned skin for longer.

Pestle & Mortar Vitamin C 2 Phase Serum ingredients

Pestle & Mortar Vitamin C 2 Phase Serum combines three types of Vitamin C so you get the specific benefits of each.

Ascorbyl Glucoside is converted to Ascorbic Acid in the skin and provides antioxidant protection, brightening effects and collagen-boosting benefits.

3-0-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is an etherified and stable form of Ascorbic Acid that gets converted in the skin to Ascorbic Acid at a rate of about 86%. It has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and collagen-boosting powers. 3-0-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is particularly good at brightening the skin and evening out tone.

Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate functions as an antioxidant and has a strong ability to brighten the skin and reduce discolourations. Additionally, it visibly firms and smooths wrinkles.

Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid are potent antioxidants that have been shown to work synergistically with Vitamin C to enhance its effectiveness.

Pumpkin Ferment Extract replenishes fatty acids and gently exfoliates to create a brighter and fresher appearance.

Tamarind Seed Extract has antioxidant and skin-refining benefits. It contains acids that gently exfoliate and brighten the skin. It also helps the skin retain more moisture.

Evening Primrose Oil is an emollient and soothing oil that also helps other ingredients better absorb. Evening Primrose Oil is well suited to those with dry, ageing and sensitive skin.

Pestle & Mortar Vitamin C 2 Phase Serum Review

I really do love this serum … It gives me those amazing Vitamin C benefits that take a serum from nice to wow. My skin tone looks clear, even and as close to unblemished as it’s going to get! I also think the ingredient list and formula similarities make this a great alternative to the Drunk Elephant Vitamin C, if you’re no longer supporting them but really like that serum.
