1 oz | 30 mL glass bottle

  • Recommended for: NOVA is suitable for all skin.

    Target concerns:
    + Dullness
    + Dark Spots
    + Uneven Skin Tone

    NOVA is powered by THD vitamin C—a highly efficacious, oil-soluble ingredient that deeply penetrates the skin to brighten dark spots and improve hyperpigmentation. At a potent level of 15%, this treatment gives skin an immediate boost of radiance and significantly brightens skin in seven days. Best yet, the powerful formula is gentle on sensitive skin, so everyone can enjoy its incredible benefits.

    A key ingredient in NOVA is antioxidant-rich super root turmeric which gives this serum a ginger-like smell that fades upon application. Like all of our products, NOVA is 100% natural and made without any added fragrances.

    Clinical results:
    In a blind use test on 65 men and women (ages 25-59 yrs), participants reported the following results after 7 days of twice-daily use: 

    • Brighter skin in 7 days
    • No new breakouts
    • No irritation

    Scent: Turmeric, ginger-like
    Texture: Silky, creamy
    Color: Pale yellow

  • Apply 1-2 pumps onto skin after cleansing and before moisturizing. For additional skin-tone-evening benefits, use 2-3 drops of LAPIS facial oil as the final step before applying SPF

    *Store in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.

Staple item

This product is a game changer. I have very sensitive skin and this makes my face feel amazing. The scent is subtle, and I love the glow that it gives me. I have added it to morning and night routine. I cannot recommend it enough!

So far so good!

Goes on smooth and smells great if you like tumeric. My face seems a little sensitive and I had a few extra blemishes after the first few day, but they cleared up quickly. Too soon to notice any brightening for me yet I think. I’m not great at wearing sunscreen (allergic to many of them), but protect myself with wide brim hats when outside longer periods. I haven’t noticed any additional sun sensitivity so far, but I would be careful in the sun with any Vit. C cream.

Great Vitamin C

Love this! The texture is nice and absorbs well into the skin! It does have a slightly earthy smell but I like that! I believe this helps keep my skin brighter and diminishes dark spots!

Game Changer!

I've tried other brands of Vitamin C which all caused breakouts. I tried the Herbivore brand due to the more stable form of Vitamin C and based on a review by an online dermatologist. The texture and easy application of NOVA are wonderful! Plus, no breakouts. It's made my skin glow, calmed my breakouts and pairs wonderfully with the Lapis oil. It is staying in my routine.
