    Hi there! Can you use vitamine a ( retinol) in combination with your vitamine c serum? Best regards, Jennifer

      Hi Jennifer! Thanks for asking. Generally, the answer is yes, but if you have sensitive skin or are new to Vitamin C, we recommend patch testing first to ensure there's no sensitization. You could also alternate the days you use both products. For more in-depth tips, email us! :)

    Hello there, I want to ask that you said we should avoid salicyclic acid and glycolic acid while using vit c, can i use a product that has 3% glycolic acid and 0.45% salicyclic acid in it in the same routine? In my case it is a'pieu glycolic acid cream. Please tell us more ways to protect vit c from oxidation in your upcoming videos. Thanks

      Thanks, Lily! Our Pineapple-C Bright Serum is super gentle, while still providing maximum brightening effects. You can use this in conjunction with your exfoliating treatment, we would just recommend patch testing first, and/or alternating the days you use each product. To maintain efficacy, store Vitamin C products in cool, dark places. Our Pineapple-C comes in a tinted bottle, coated in a UV resistant layer :)
