amara organics vitamin c serum

Amara Organics is a really popular choice amongst vitamin C serums sold on Amazon. Overall, it’s not a bad product. It’s probably more effective than most drugstore products containing vitamin C. That being said, it doesn’t contain the most effective form of vitamin C. Amara Organics serum is made with SAP (sodium ascorbyl phosphate) not with L-AA aka ascorbic acid. Studies have shown that ascorbic acid is a much more effective than any other form of topical vitamin C. A much better option in the same price range is Timeless vitamin C serum made with ascorbic acid as well as ferulic acid and vitamin E, which increase absorption by up to 8 times.
