Some of the beauty salons offer the Vitamin C Peel enriched with ferulic acid that shows stabilizing and strengthening effect on the vitamin C, protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays and, as an antioxidant, slows down the aging process. The best results are achieved by a series of 4 treatments repeated every 7-10 days, but it can also be done just once.

This vitamin is a powerful antioxidant, it fights free radicals and protects the skin from external factors. In addition, the serum contains hyaluronic acid, mulberry extract, tripeptide-3 palmitate and panthenol. Each of the substances plays an important role:
