Why is this different?
Ferulic Acid Vitamin C Serum functions well together towards limiting the expression of tyrosinase which will provide the brightening effect. Vitamin C ferulic acid contains anti-inflammatory properties which clear pigmentation and PIH and is also essential for collagen biosynthesis.
How Does it Work on the Skin?
- 10 % Vitamin C (3-o-ethyl ascorbic acid) inhibits tyrosinase activity to provide a brightening effect.
- 0.5 % Ferulic acid is a potent antioxidant, which prevents sun damage by suppressing the production of free radicals.
How to use?
- Apply 2-3 drops onto dry skin after cleansing.
- Use your fingertips to spread it evenly across your face until absorbed.
- Follow up with a moisturiser and sunscreen for best results.
- Can be used in the morning and evening.

I purchased this after a lot of research and thought of deconstruct serum to be the one to use... But the colour of the serum was slightly yellow in colour and it was not mentioned anywhere on the website about it being yellow...
Because of the yellow colour, now you can not say if it is oxidised or not......So i asked for a refund but was told that it is the new formulation....
Not using it....
Waste of money..
Good serum loved 😍 a lot
Works good on my skin and give nice glow
It gave me breakouts,I don't know why. I asked for help from the brand but they didn't help.
It was a nice serum BUT my previous bottle got oxidised within 4 months so I received a replacement(which i really appreciate) but this 2nd bottle's vitamin c colour is already dark, so i asked this to customer support and they said it's the new formulation so this the new colour of their vitamin c. Now i am not sure if i should use it. And most importantly if it is the colour in all their new batch how would we know that vitamin c is oxidised. I'm not asking for refund or replacement but i am not using it anymore.
