Benefits of Perricone Vitamin C Ester

Vitamin C Ester is both water and fat soluble, which enhances its effectiveness in supporting both a stronger immune system, as well as helping fight the visible signs of aging, such as fine lines and loss of elasticity.

Besides its antioxidant benefits, Vitamin C Ester helps to:

  • Deliver firming benefits
  • Improve elasticity
  • Diminish appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration
  • Leave a smooth and luminous appearance

How does Vitamin C Ester help improve the appearance of aging skin? One way is through promoting the growth of fibroblasts. Fibroblasts make up the bulk of connective tissue found throughout the body, including collagen and elastin.

Collagen and elastin are proteins important in skin composition, and as people age, production of these decreases and the proteins begin to break down. Loss of these proteins results in wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Why Vitamin C Ester?

Why Vitamin C Ester, not just Vitamin C (i.e. L-Absorbic Acid)? Dr. Perricone explains:

Application of Perricone Vitamin C Ester

Dr. Perricone recommends taking 2 capsules daily with meals. Combine with topical treatments to keep skin at its healthiest.

  1. Dear Dr. Perricone,

    I am 63 years old, and I tried so many products to have a nice skin, but nothing works. Then, a friend of mine who’s been using your product for a while, advised me to try it. I am so amazed of the outcome, for just few weeks I saw results, and I am very satisfied. I want to try your Vitamin C Ester 15. Could you please send me a sample. My address is 428 Lakeshire Dr, Daly City, Ca 94015.


  2. I have used this product twice only and redness on my sensitive skin has almost gone! I am hopeful that my melasma will disappear soon also. I can’t stop starring at the mirror, its just a miracle. I will use this product forever.

  3. Hello, I am 77 going on 78 but I don’t look my age. I chanced upon an article in the daily newspapers and am curious about your product.

  4. Due to weight loss I have protruding vertical neck bands.

  5. Hello Dr.

    I am 67 and like many people have sunbathed without realising the damage that I was doing as many years ago no one knew this. As a result I have brown marks on my face and hands which have never gone away. I have a big one on my cheek and I have tried many things and nothing has happened. I spend most of my time trying to cover them with concealer and its making my life a misery. It would be a dream come true if I could find something that will make a difference to the marks on my face and make me feel happy again.

  6. I need vitamin c ester to help get rid of the sun spots on my face, the anti inflammatory affects and to help with the lines that are making me unhappy! I just turned 42 and I don’t look as old as I am and I’d like to keep it that way!

  7. Hello Dr,
    I desperately like to try your supplements especially vitam c ester but umfortunately your products contain gelatine and this ingredient restrict people like vegetarian and people with religious beliefs that forbid such animal based ingredients in their diets.
    Is it not possible to use alternative ingredient in your supplements? or could you suggest an alternative supplement with all the great benefits of vitamin c ester .that is suitable for vegetarians.

  8. i have very rough skin on face. looking old and dull

  9. Have not use Perriconemd’ s product. Would like to try Vitamin C Ester 15 to see if it works on ethnic skin.

  10. I would love to win this product! I really would like to use Vitamin C on my face but all the Vitamin C serums on the market break me out – Skinceuticals, Philosophy, Cellex-C – you name it, I’ve tried it. I would love to give this a shot as I know that it would help reduce my sun damage and build collagen. I’m crossing my fingers!

  11. Love your products. I am using your Nutritive Cleanser and
    Advanced Face Firming activator and face finishing moisturizer.
    Can I use your Vitamin C ester in conjunction with these products?
    What order would I use them in? Is it safe to use these products if
    you are having IPL treatments?
    Have your books, and find them so informative.
    Thank you so much!

  12. The book “The wrinkle cure” by dr. Perricone is not just another book on cosmetics.
    It is a life saving source of information and an important piece in a puzzle of how to treat the most dangerous diseases of our time.
    Thank you dr. Perricone.

  13. Hello, im 42 and have light melasma starting to spread. I take Ester c and am looking for somthing topical to help as well. Dont have many wrinkles just some skin discoloring starting. Would likr to try your product. Read some of your books :)

  14. How do I use this in conjunction with other serums/products? In what order (this first, then others, then moisteriizer? Or others, then this,etc.?). Also, is this used in the morning or at night? I have it and WANT to use it but I need better directions for application. Can it be used with OVER THE COUNTER products containing retinol? Please don’t tell me to contact a dermatologist….I am not talking about RX retinol.

  15. I am 63 yrs old and am fair skinned. My skin is in relatively good condition. I currently use Reviva Vitamin C Ester, Dmae, alpha lipoic acid. I understand that your product is better and I would like to know what is different about it
    I am on a strict budget so need to spend my money wisely. I would buy yours if I knew that it would at all heal the sun damaged skin on my neck..My face was always covered with sun screen over the last 50 decades but not my my face looks at least a decade younger than my neck….but would use it on both.

  16. why do perricone leave old comments up so long all comments over one year should be removed they are boring and make people assume his products are no good.

  17. I was using some vitamin C serums which didn’t provide any noticeable results, they were full of things I wasn’t too happy to put on my face + their price was daylight robbery.

    I have sensitive combination skin, the only trouble is that it’s prone to shining – but the Lady Soma Renewal Serum solved this.

    Well, this serum is something completely different – but it’s the first time that skin product gave me some noticeable results. Skin seems … well, just better, sort of more alive.

    Besides, (not very dark) pigmentation I had for years gradually disappeared after a few months of using this serum.

    Since my mother is pharmacist I gave her the list of ingredients and she says they are fantastic.

    When my husband smelt it on me he liked the smell so much that he tried it – and from that day he’s stealing it on regular basis. He has dry, but not sensitive skin and adores it.

  18. I am 62 and in the last 4 years I have started getting the lines around the mouth, folds under the nose, etc…Lately I have some fillers(injections) which has helped a little to soften some of the lines. I have also been reading your book and haves started on the 3 day cleanse which I will probably go on the 28 day wrinkle free program. So I would love to be a tester.

  19. would love to test a product to buy it later

  20. I was given one ( leftover ) bottle of your products ( vit.C Ester Amine Complex Face Lift ). I just turned 43 and don’t believe in miracles HOWEVER ….. I saw HUGE difference after 2 days !! would LOOOOVE 2 buy some more but , the prices .. any sales or giveaways ??

  21. I’ve been on Dr. Perricone’s Prescription including C-Ester for six years. I feel and look great. I am going to be 57 this year (2011) and people tell me I look like I’m a teenager, some say I look 30ish or early 40ish, they’re all great compliments, but I owe it to Dr. Perricone, c-ester, alpha lipoic, dmae, salmon, nuts and cantaloupe . . . I highly recommend it. Wish you luck

  22. I hate my freckles. I only had a few before but now there all over. I really want rid of them so i’m trying the lemon juice,sour milk
    orange juice, red currant juice,parsley juice
    favorite moisturizer and UV cream.

  23. Hi! Dr. Perricone

    I would like to become one of your testers. I am on your site tonight because even though I am currently receiving unemployment. Your website gives me hope and something to look forward to. I am 51, soon to be 52 in August. My skin is starting to sag and it is dry and had spots from picking at the facial hair I don’t know if anyone or anything can help me because this facial hair is a nightmare!!! I don’t go out much and I don’t have friends because I don’t want people to look at me. But when I take a journey through your site, I am inspired and hopeful. For those that have tried your products and found life I am truly happy for them. Well, nice chatting with you! Lenelle

  24. I love this product because it sinks into my skin effortlessly and the results are apparent in a very short amount of time… instant gratification! I use it in the “Eye Effect” combo in conjunction and am loving it!

  25. I was so exicted to have read about your products and I cant wait until I start my new skin regime. I would be very happy to become a Perricone tester.

  26. Looking forward to your products. I have purchased many in past years, but look forward to what you have new.

  27. Sounds like a great product, I would like to try it.

  28. If you want to have healthy youthful even toned clear skin then vitamin c ester is the magic vitamin your body needs to producve just that. This really is all you willever need besides plenty of sleep sunscreen and drinking lots of fresh water every day.

  29. i would love to try some

  30. The ester component is fascinating to me! I have struggled with skin problems most of my life (acne age 10 to present), dryness and flaking from treatments, and now at age 42, aging skin. I love keeping up with all the latest advances in skincare. It’s important that we know the truth vs. hype.

  31. I could use more vitamin c in my daily diet
