WHY WE MADE THIS
Not all vitamin C serums are made equal, and our
Vitamin C + Ferulic Serum is one of the most potent available. With powerful antioxidants and actives, this formula visibly brightens skin and fights ageing long-term.
THE SCIENCE
1
Reduces pigmentation and dark spots
Vitamin C inhibits melanin production to lighten dark spots and discolouration.
2
Boosts radiance
Ferulic acid targets dullness for a visibly brighter, glowing complexion.
3
Fights signs of ageing
Alpha-lipoic acid improves the appearance of fine lines, while vitamin E protects against environmental stressors that accelerate ageing.
4
Keeps skin supple and smooth
Vitamin C helps boost collagen production for skin cell renewal, resulting in elastic, youthful skin.

Build your morning routine

Using the dropper, apply 4-5 drops of serum to face neck and chest, and gently rub in.

Can I use this with my custom formula?

If used alongside your custom formula, this Vitamin C + Ferulic Serum should only be used in the morning and not in the same routine. It is also meant to be used once your skin has adjusted to Software’s clinical-strength formulas. We recommend waiting between 6-8 weeks before introducing it gradually.

Such an amazing product!
[These products] do exactly as they describe.I've had amazing successes with the Foaming Wash, Vit C Serum and Retinol Oil - I can't recommend them enough and have gifted [them] to both my mum and sister-in-law!

Great value for customised clinical-grade skincare
Tailored to your individual needs and you can have it reviewed and changed whenever you need. Great price for something with so many effective active ingredients. You’ll pay more for less action from off-the-shelf products that aren’t even customised.

Amazing products! Noticed a difference after one use!
Used [them] before going to bed last night. My skin felt and looked amazing instantly! When I woke up this morning, my skin was glowing and any dry/irritated areas had gone over night, leaving my skin feeling super hydrated and smooth! Highly recommend!

An unexpected quick turn-around in my skin
After 3 weeks of using the Essentials Kit and Vitamin C plus Retinol, my skin has visibly improved in terms of texture, fine lines, and pigment. Very happy with the results in such a short time!

Actually amazing!
I never leave a review mostly because I normally feel so-so about other brands/products. BUT Software Vit C and Retinol are actually AMAZING! Only been using for a few weeks and this stuff has transformed my skin! So smooth and clear.

Best skincare treatment I have tried!
Great product. Fixed my acne issues and preventing aging signs too. The purchase process is fantastic and Drs. give great support an advice. Reorder cycle is planned to perfection if you use product as instructed. Highly recommend the prescription, but also their moisturiser, Retinol Oil and Vitamin C serum.

What's the difference between this vitamin C and the other vitamin Cs that are available on the market?

The Software Vitamin C + Ferulic Serum is one of the most potent vitamin Cs on the Australian market. Most vitamin C serums contain 2-4% vitamin C, but ours has a full 15% vitamin C as well as ferulic acid, which works to protect against the premature signs of ageing and rejuvenate the skin by improving skin elasticity and firmness.

Can all skin types use this Vitamin C + Ferulic Serum?

Vitamin C is a hero ingredient that’s beneficial for all skin types and skin concerns. It helps to protect against premature ageing, fights pigmentation and dark spots, brightens skin, improves elasticity, and protects against UV-induced damage caused by free radicals.

While vitamin C serums boost the effectiveness of your skin’s defence, you must always follow it up with a full-spectrum SPF before stepping outside.

Where do I use vitamin C in my skincare regimen?

Vitamin C serums are best used as part of your morning skincare routine, immediately after cleansing and before moisturiser and SPF.

Does using the Vitamin C + Ferulic Serum have any side effects?

Because the Vitamin C + Ferulic Serum contains potent actives, you may experience some purging (initial breakouts) as you start to use the product, especially if it is your first time to use this ingredient in your routine. However, your skin should clear after a few weeks as your skin cells turn over. Results take time, so do stick with your product. Should your symptoms persist, please consult your doctor.

Is the Vitamin C + Ferulic Serum safe for pregnancy or breast-feeding?
