Antioxidants work best in concert with one another. That’s why we carefully select the mix of ingredients in our Topical Vitamin C Treatment so they can deliver the greatest wrinkle fighting, skin brightening power.
KEY INGREDIENTSl-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)
Vitamin C is crucial for maintaining tissue health, and because it is not synthesized by the body, our only source comes from our diet. Because it is integral to so many skin functions we believe topical supplementation ensures that the skin doesn’t get neglected. This is because topical applications, as long as the antioxidants are in their fresh, non-oxidized form, will not be diverted but will target skin tissue so that collagen production and antioxidant activities can proceed normally.
This potent, ubiquitous plant antioxidant becomes more stable and effective when combined with Vitamin C. Studies show that when used in concert with Vitamin C, ferulic acid doubles photo protection, from 4 fold to 8 fold, as measured by both erythema (redness) and sunburn cell formation.
Licorice root This powerful plant antioxidant provides anti-inflammatory benefits while it brightens and lightens your skin.

"I highly recommend these products, they are made from high quality ingredients and aren't cheap but they do what Marie says they'll do. My skin is fair and sensitive plus I live in the Mojave Desert so if MVO wasn't as advertised I would have known quickly. So very happy I followed the link that day in the Chronicle. If you decide to use MVO do your self a favor and take pictures of your face before you start using them, then again in three months..." -- Jackie Pelfrey
"After a head injury, my lower jaw began to move forward resulting in stretch marks on my face and deep lines around my mouth. While I obviously I have far more serious symptoms to heal from, looking at my skin in the mirror over the years has been heartbreaking. I recently learned about MVO products and while it was a splurge I decided to try the Pacific Night Serum with Retinol mixed in with the Vitamin C, as well as the Exfoliating Cleanser. I’ve been using the products just over two weeks. The stretch marks are about 40% better! And a few days ago the deep lines around my mouth started to soften! I’m really encouraged and so, so grateful these gorgeous, safe, organic products exist. On top of which, the service I received was incredible. Such a kind and knowledge staff. Yay! I’m looking forward to more healing across the board and am excited to have MVO as part of my team." -- Jane S.
"I LOVE this line -- my skin has never been better!!" -- Kathryn Lancaster via Facebook
"We love @MVOrganics and are so happy to introduce them to @TheMiniPost" -- @SolageCalistoga
"There are very few brands i truly trust and MVO is one of them! Thank you for your great, clean products." -- Ellen Martino
"I just started using your stuff and it has already changed my face's life." -- @NikoleBeckwith
"In the nearly 2 weeks that I have been using the MV Pacific line, I have seen marked improvement in my skin. Amazingly, I have only had 1 rosacea flare-up in these entire 12 days (!), and it was very minor. This is truly huge because I previously had 1 to 2 significant flare-ups every single day for the past year, and my skin was in a constant "reactive" state. I am beyond surprised that I would see such a huge difference so fast (and also that anything could help my skin) especially given how many different skin lines I've tried in the past 13 months since developing rosacea. My skin truly appears to be healing. Even the persistent redness that is always there (regardless of whether I am having a flare-up) is diminishing. Marie was actually in the store when I was there 12 days ago and she suggested that I switch from the micronized zinc sunscreen I had been using for a couple of years to her non-nano formula instead, which I did. I think that this in particular has made a huge difference since it calmed my skin from the first time I tried it. She also suggested a daily Turmeric & Vitamin C supplement, which I have been taking. Anyway, I am beyond thrilled and plan to continue using the Pacific line. My skin hasn't looked this good in over a year!" -- Rebecca J.
"I recently ordered the balance of the Pacific products for my face. Amanda helped in providing me an optimum cleaning routine. I'm alternating the Night Serum w/ Retinol with the Topical Marine Treatment. I'm almost 2 weeks into using the Pacific line and I'm loving it! I'll be able to provide better feedback after a months use but for now I can say my skin has never felt or looked better. Thank you to Marie & her entire team for giving me a healthy, natural choice. I'm a customer for life!" -- Deb
"I’ll put in my two cents and say I recently tried MVO’s Pacific line (based on a recommendation from this blog) and my skin is completely transformed. I’ve tried every clean product on the market, and I can easily say these are the most effective products out there, for me at least. And I don’t work for the company! I’m just a product junkie. So while $375 may seem like a lot, I would go for it based on my experience with MVO. I completely trust them based on my experience so far." -- Alison

Exposure to sun, smoke, pollution, stress, and medications—and in turn, free radicals—are unfortunately accelerating the aging process. Wrinkles and hyperpigmentation are the result of this free radical damage. Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons that attack lipids, collagen, elastin, cell structures like fibroblasts, and even DNA.
Antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, are free radical scavengers, scooping up unpaired electrons and neutralizing them to forestall free radical cascades. Some antioxidants are vital to maintaining skin health because, in addition to acting as free radical scavengers, they also perform other crucial functions.
Vitamin C in its water-soluble form (l-ascorbic acid) is extremely effective as an antioxidant, and it also repairs past damage, lightens sun spots and stimulates collagen production. The problem with Vitamin C is that it oxidizes rapidly in liquid, becoming a prooxidant, creating free radicals rather than neutralizing them. Skin care companies have tried to resolve the l-ascorbic acid problem by replacing it with oil-soluble forms (Vitamin C-esther, ascorbyl palmitate), however studies show that these versions are much less effective than l-ascorbic acid.
MVO solves this problem by delivering Vitamin C in powder form and in capsules. This allows you to dispense the exact amount you need and ensures that it's fresh each time. To make sure you are getting effective Vitamin C in your skin care, check the label for l-ascorbic acid. If it's a Vitamin C serum, chances are you will be getting an oil soluble version of Vitamin C, rather than l-ascorbic acid. If it is indeed l-ascorbic acid, check the color of your serum. If it's yellow or orange, your Vitamin C has begun to oxidize. If it's brown or dark brown your serum contains only prooxidants and will be doing your skin more harm than good.
Our Philosophy"Intelligent Ingredients" is more than just a tagline. It’s the overriding principle that guides every formulation at Marie Veronique Organics. That’s because science tells us that what goes on your skin ultimately penetrates your skin and goes into your body. The right ingredients can do a world of good and the wrong ones quite the opposite. Before an ingredient gets added to a product we make sure it does the right thing, efficiently and without causing harm to you or the planet.
Using our deep scientific understanding of the aging process, we turn to nature for potent ingredients that will counter—and even reverse—the effects of aging skin. Our ingredients are selected to penetrate deep within the skin, working exactly where the aging action happens, rather than simply staying on the surface. And above all else, we stand by our philosophy that toxic ingredients, harmful chemicals, artificial agents and preservatives are not the solution for making your skin look and feel younger.
It’s probably no surprise that our entire company is dedicated to sustainability. Wherever possible we use natural, organic and fair trade ingredients, packaged in 100% recyclable materials. And we source them as close to our Mill Valley headquarters as possible to keep our footprint super small.
Keep in a cool place. For external use only. Mix 1 capsule with selected serum in palm of hand until dissolved and apply to face, neck and chest. Use at night after cleanser, mist and face oil. If irritation develops, discontinue use and consult a physician.
