  • Recommended for: NOVA is suitable for all skin.

    Target concerns:
    + Dullness

    + 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.

Great product

First time using a vitamin c serum. Seeing a difference in my mature skin. Definitely has a strong scent at application, but it doesn’t bother me as you don’t smell it for long. Purchasing more.

Satisfied customer

Within two weeks the redness of my skin had dramatically reduced, the texture looked smoother, and I had little to no new breakouts during the second week of use.

The Best Vit C Option I've Tried So Far

I have had issues finding a Vit C serum that doesn't sting my skin or increase the redness I already have. NOVA is excellent at not only not causing redness, but actually reducing existing redness! It doesn't break me out, and it doesn't irritate/sting. I am almost finished with my first bottle, and I while have noticed a subtle general all-over brightening, it's mostly only lightened post-acne marks and hasn't really had much effect on stubborn sun damage pigmentation.
