Elizabeth Arden Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules
In 1990, Elizabeth Arden changed the skincare industry forever with the introduction of Ceramide Capsules. Now, the number-one selling serum in a capsule welcomes its newest innovation – Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules Radiance Renewal Serum.
Each capsule is super-charged with a vitamin C that is 178x more potent than traditional vitamin C, which typically dissipates after three hours. Using this ultra-stable vitamin C, Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules offer maximum efficacy and protection against external skin aggressors.
To complement the skin’s moisture barrier, the capsules are formulated with oil-soluble vitamin C, rather than traditional water-soluble vitamin C.
Price: R1 025.00 (60 capsules), R599.00 (30 capsules)
