Vitamin C: Neutralizes free radicals and helps slow down signs of aging, our 10% concentration of sodium ascorbyl phosphate (a natural derivative of Vitamin C) is equivalent to a 20% concentration of L-ascorbic acid in its effectiveness yet more stable and bioavailable.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA): A magnet for moisture, the HA in our formula has a much lower molecular size which allows it to penetrate the skin better so that your skin feels and appears hydrated, plump and healthy.
Ferulic Acid: An antioxidant that helps slow the aging process and protects against sun damage.
Superfruit Complex: Packed with vitamins A, B, C, and other fruit acids, our superfruit extracts protect your skin against free radicals while they gently exfoliate, brighten and clarify your skin.
Sodium PCA (PCA): A natural component of your skin, PCA protects the skin against dryness by attracting and binding moisture from the surrounding air to your skin.

Should I use Glow Nectar during the day only? In general, you’ll get the most out of vitamin C in the morning because vitamin C serum helps to shield your skin from free radicals during the day and can help to boost the protection offered by your sunscreen. Applying at night time, too won’t hurt but make sure you do not combine vitamin C serum with products that contain active ingredients such as retinol or benzoyl peroxide.
Why do we use Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP) and not the traditional L-Ascorbic Acid (L-AA) used by other brands? We use SAP as it is a more stable form of Vitamin C yet twice as effective as L-AA, the most commonly used form of Vitamin C used in skin care. Most of the L-AA, when applied, sits on the skin's surface without being absorbed and utilized and often causes irritation as a result. The primary difference is that SAP, the form of vitamin C that we use, has a salt attached to it, allowing it to penetrate the skin's lipid barrier and making it more bioavailable. This also makes it much more stable and less prone to oxidation, which is a huge problem with L-AA.
