Do you have a sunscreen?
No, we do not currently carry any products with SPF, though we plan to in the future. We do recommend applying a moisturizer rich in antioxidants in the morning to help protect against environmental damage. Generally speaking, we prefer taking cover versus lathering up on sunscreen. You will find us in a shady spot between the hours of 10 am and 4pm, when the sun is at its strongest.When fun in the sun does call our name, we follow a simple checklist…1. Sun hat. Hats protect the fragile facial and scalp areas that are most susceptible to sun damage. A sun hat will also help protect and preserve your hair color.2. Protective cover up. We don’t need an excuse to toss on a cute tunic or striped sun shirt!
3. Sunglasses. Don’t forget to protect your eyes, too! Look for lenses that filter out 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays.
We aren’t the only ones who share this sentiment. After testing literally thousands of sunscreens, the EWG (link) concluded that the best sunscreen is…a shirt and a hat! No chemicals to absorb through the skin; no questions about whether they work. Perfect!

What percentage of Vitamin C does the Vitamin C Facial Serum contain?
At One Love Organics, we use Vitamin C ester, also known as ascorbyl palmitate, because it is a more potent source of Vitamin C, is less irritating to the skin, and absorbs more readily than L-asorbic acid. It is also more stable in topical solutions, ensuring a longer shelf-life and protection from free radical damage. For these reasons, the Vitamin C ester in our Vitamin C Facial Serum performs at much lower percentages than typical, L-ascorbic acid based serums on the market.Why haven’t you heard of Vitamin C ester? Vitamin C ester is less popular in skin care products because it is much more expensive (168% more expensive, in fact) than L-ascorbic acid.In addition to Vitamin C ester, our Vitamin C Serum contains an abundance of ultra-concentrated, plant-based and bio-available ingredients naturally rich in Vitamin C:Organic Rosehip Oil: A potent superfruit from the rose plant, rosehip is particularly high in Vitamin C content and is one of the richest plant sources of Vitamin C available. Rose hips are also rich in lycopene, essential fatty acids and antioxidant flavonoids.
Baobab Fruit Oil: The Baobab fruit has six times more Vitamin C than an orange. Rich in vitamins A, C, D, E and F, sterols and the amino acid lysine (crucial in the creation of collagen), baobab oil absorbs quickly, is very moisturizing and encourages skin elasticity.
Organic Green Tea has been found to have a compounding antioxidant and protective effect when used in conjunction with Vitamin C. Green Tea works in synergy with and boosts the efficacy of Vitamin C and Vitamin E, which is also included in our formula.
Organic Seabuckthorn: This cherished superfruit is rich in antioxidants, essential amino acids, vitamins A, C, E, and is one of the most powerful sources of the rare Omega 7. It provides an average of 10 times more Vitamin C than oranges and is the third richest source of Vitamin E in the plant world.
Organic Acerola: A tropical plant also known as the Barbados cherry, Acerola can contain as much as 90 times more Witamin C than oranges, is an excellent source of Vitamin A, and is prized for its ability to brighten and even skin tone.
See what we mean? You simply can’t compare One Love Organics’ Vitamin C Serum to those containing common L-ascorbic acid. It’s in a class all its own! Need more proof? This carefully designed formula was named one of the TIA Five Best Vitamin C Serums of 2014 by anti-aging expert Marta Worhle at Truth in Aging.
