    Banana Bright™ Vitamin C Serum FAQS:


    What type of vitamin C is in the formula and what’s the concentration? Is it stable?
    Banana Bright Serum contains 15% 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid, which is a light-and-air-stable vitamin C derivative.

    What’s the difference between Banana Bright and Truth Serum?
    Both Banana Bright and Truth Serum brighten, firm, hydrate and improve the look of skin texture. The main difference is that Banana Bright Serum is Ole’s highest concentration of vitamin C for daily use (15%). Banana Bright also contains 5% PHAs (polyhydroxy acids), which is a unique chemical exfoliant. Truth Serum contains an enhanced, stable vitamin C derivative (sodium ascorbyl phosphate) along with nourishing collagen. If you’re new to using vitamin C skincare, we recommend starting with Truth Serum. Once you’ve developed a tolerance and want a higher concentration of vitamin C, we say glow bananas.

    What are banana powder-inspired pigments and what do they do?
    Banana powder-inspired pigments include light-reflecting and color-correcting naturally derived minerals.

    Does this serum have fragrance in it? Is it scented?
    This formula contains less than 1% fragrance, which is naturally derived from oranges and rigorously tested for safety, toxicity and allergens.

    How quickly will I see results?
    Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum instantly brightens, hydrates and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This multitasking serum also firms and reduces the appearance of pores and dark spots with continued use over time.

  • Inspiration

    Ole has been changing the skincare game since the beginning—he was a pioneer in bringing vitamin C to the skincare world and pushed boundaries when he brought makeup artist secret “banana powder” to our daily routines. Now, he’s combining those tried-and-true brighteners with more essentials for glowing skin—skin-smoothing PHAs and hydration-boosting hyaluronic acid—to create the ultimate multi-acid serum. This serum contains our highest concentration of vitamin C for daily use.
