C-MAX Skin Repair - 2 oz.

Organic Excellence - Stimulates Collagen - Promotes Skin Repair

Chemical Free Skin Cream - Topical Vitamin C Cream

For the maximum amount of skin repair and protection, researchers at Duke University Medical School have shown that the L-ascorbic acid form vitamin C needs to be topically applied and absorbed into the skin. The L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C is the only form of vitamin C that can be used by the body and must be used in at least a 5% concentration to achieve the maximum collagen synthesis.

The Organic Excellence C-Max Skin Repair Formula contains a 6.5% concentration of L-ascorbic acid. Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid form only) is the most abundant anti-oxidant found naturally in the skin and is the only antioxidant that has been proven to increase the production of collagen, which is an essential protein necessary for strong, healthy skin. The collagen protein is a kind of biological mortar located in the skin's second layer that forms the foundation for the underlying skin and keeps it firmer and appearing younger. Collagen production decreases with age, and when the level of collagen drops low enough, the underlying structure of the skin weakens, becomes less firm, and allows skin sagging and wrinkling to develop.

Why Organic Excellence C-MAX Skin Repair Improves Skin Health

It is difficult to get a high enough volume of vitamin C in the skin to start the production of the collagen protein through diet alone. Experts say that no research has shown that taking oral vitamin C supplements affects the aging process of the skin in any way. Vitamin C cream can reverse the signs of photo-aging, (one of the processes that cause a decrease in the production of collagen) causing skin to wrinkle. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, meaning that it is not stored in the body. The body will naturally eliminate any amount of vitamin C that it doesn't use. According to an article in the American Academy of Dermatology, "Vitamin C is depleted when the skin is exposed to the sun, pollution or smoking. Even minimal UV exposure can decrease the vitamin C level in the skin by 30%, while exposure to the ozone of city pollution can decrease the level by 55%."

UV rays also affect the production of collagen, therefore the more time that is spent in the sun, the sooner the aging process will begin. New studies have shown that topical vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is an excellent antioxidant for UVA and UVB protection, making it a useful addition to but not replacement for sunscreens. Because topical vitamin C does not absorb light in the UVA/UVB range, IT IS NOT A SUNSCREEN, for that, we recommend Badger Sunscreen.

The L-ascorbic acid form of Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant that has a proven ability to neutralize damage to skin cells caused by free radicals. Free radicals are one of the major causes of aging of the skin. According to a new French study, published in the European Journal of Dermatology, "one way to stave off the ravages of both time and sun damage is to boost collagen production via topical application of creams containing the L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C."


  1. Is the L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C, the only true form of vitamin C that the body can use in the product? For the Organic Excellence C-Max Skin Repair Formula the answer is YES.
  2. If yes, is the L-ascorbic acid at a low pH so that it penetrates skin and high enough concentration to have an effect? For the Organic Excellence C-Max Skin Repair Formula the answer is YES. C-Max has a concentration of 6.5% of the L-ascorbic acid form of Vitamin C in each 2 ounce jar, and is formulated with a low enough pH to be absorbed into the skin. (Studies have shown that at least a 5% concentration is needed to achieve results.)
  3. Is the L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C in the product stable? For the Organic Excellence C-Max Skin Repair Formula, the answer is YES.
C-MAX Skin Repair by Organic Excellence is Made in America to assure quality and purity.

Reviewer: shannon from norwalk, OH United States  
This product is awesome! All natural and makes my skin so soft and smooth. Better than any other product I have tried. A little goes a long way so it's well worth the price.

organic excellence c max face cream March 14, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Canada  
this is one of my favorite companies!  I feel I can trust the quality of their products - and the C Max is no exception . It goes on smoothly, and with little to no scent, which suits me.

Only Used a Few Days, but ... November 21, 2013
Reviewer: Kathleen Allegro from Philadelphia, PA United States  
I had purchased the Organic Exvellence Silk Protein Formula only to discover it indicated using OVER THE C-MAX. I found it on "cheaper" on Earth Turns and it arrived quickly thereafter. I have only begun using it but can feel my skin change. I'm hopeful it will be a long-time affair for my "wrinkles" and I.
