We formulated Pineapple-C with a proprietary concentration of 3 different forms of Vitamin C, including 22% Vitamin C rich pineapple juice, the most common form, L-AA and the less common but much more stable derivative, 3-O-Ethyl Acid. This combination makes this a very potent brightening serum!
Because Vitamin C can be unstable, packaging was an important consideration for us. The glass bottle that Pineapple C is housed in is opaque and coated with a UV protectant. We always recommend storing any Vitamin C serum in a cool, dry place. The fridge is a great idea!
Some of you smell tropical goodness while others notice a more distinct scent. Everyone experiences the scent of vitamin C differently, and some of you may be noticing how it interacts with the scent of natural pineapple juice, which makes up 22% of our formula. This is totally normal and has no bearing on the efficacy or stability of the formula—you'll get that amazing glass skin look either way.
Yes! Our shelfie-worthy bottle is made with 20% recycled glass and is 100% recyclable. Just rinse it after use and place it in your recycling bin. Make sure to separate each individual part of the dropper before placing them in your recycling bin.
Our cardboard cartons are made with a blend of PEFC-certified recycled paper, free of acids and heavy metal, printed with soy ink, and are 100% recyclable.

InStyle Readers' Choice Beauty Awards 2019: Best Serum
Glowing, glass skin starts with a bright, smooth, and translucent complexion so reflective, skin appears like glass. This bouncy, lightweight serum will do just that with three potent forms of antioxidant-rich vitamin C including 22% Pineapple Juice (one of the most powerful forms of natural vitamin C), pure Ascorbic acid, and stable 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic acid to combat acne scars, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation leaving skin glossy and even. The natural AHAs and Bromelain Enzymes from pineapple gently exfoliate while the built-in skin soothers (chamomile and aloe) ensure that skin stays happy and refreshed.
I love that this product uses bromelain as an enzyme for smoothing skin and it's definitely made my skin brighter. I wish it was a touch less oily and that it smelled more pineapple-y.
this serum is a little pricey, but it is so worth it. it takes a few weeks to see the results. however, i have noticed a huge difference in my skin. when i look at pictures of myself from before i used this serum, my skin looks so dull and uneven. now my face is bright and glowing!!
I have gone through so many bottles of this serum. I love the pineapple smell so much. The glow it gives my skin is amazing, and I have noticed that my dark spots have gotten lighter. I tried another vitamin c serum from another company in between bottles, and I returned that one and came back to this one. I cannot go one day without this!
Although it smells amazing it does the job right and I am extremely happy with my purchase. It leaves my skin feeling soft and bright!
