15 Best Natural and Organic Vitamin C Serums

Best natural organic vitamin c serums

I’ve rounded up the top 15 organic Vitamin C serums for face made with natural ingredients and stabilized Vitamin C. Vitamin C is one of the best antioxidants to protect skin cells from free radical damage. Besides acting as a protective shield, Vitamin C also helps fight hyperpigmentation and sun damage, brighten skin tone, increases collagen production and reduces wrinkles. Simply put, it’s an anti-aging powerhouse. For sensitive skin types, Vitamin C may cause irritation so proceed with caution. Read on for the best natural and organic Vitamin C serums in clean beauty (plus a discount code for several)!

On my Instagram @organicbeautylover I did a Vitamin C test using apple slices to see how well clean beauty Vitamin C serums prevent oxidative damage compared to cult fave Skinceuticals C E Ferulic ($166). These are the results after 48 hours.

As you can see all the Vitamin C apples that had Vitamin C serum applied look much better than the untreated apple slice, which turned brown and shriveled looking after 2 days. Generally, expensive Vitamin C serums will give you the best results, but if you’re on a budget and Vitamin C doesn’t irritate your skin, a Vitamin C serum will still protect your skin more than not.

Geek & Gorgeous C-Glow is not a natural organic brand but its simplified clinical formulas are extra potent. The $12 C-Glow is the most identical dupe to Skinceuticals C E Ferulic Acid that I’ve come across while testing dozens of dupes.

To ensure maximum freshness, Geek & Gorgeous creates C-Glow in small batches once a week (on average, by the time a C-Glow reaches customers it is about 2-3 weeks old. It’s highly recommended to be stored it in the fridge, where it keeps fresh at least for 3 months. If you don’t, it will only be potent for 6 weeks.
