La Soie Silk Vita White: pure vitamin C powder

La Soie Vitamin C Silk Powder

I’ve written about how well my skin takes to the topical application of vitamin C and I’ve also tried a number of products incorporating this ingredient such as Therapeutic Dermatologic Formula C Scape SerumJohn Masters Organics Vitamin C Anti-Aging Serum and even my homemade vitamin C serum.  I stopped using the homemade version because I got lazy having to make a fresh batch almost every other day or so. So when Dr Christine Cheng of Divine Medspa told me about her new La Soie Silk Vita White and offered me a bottle to try, I jumped on it.

L-Ascrobic Acid
La Soie Silk Vita White Powder is described as a clinical formula made of 100% Silk Crystal with two ingredents – L-Ascorbic Acid and Silk Powder. L-Ascorbic Acid is known to be the only natural form of Vitamin C in skin care products. It is a potent antioxidant proven to stimulate the synthesis of collagen, strengthens the capillaries and cell walls, as well as protect both beta-carotene and Vitamin E from oxidation.

100% Silk Crystal
The Silk Crystal in La Soie Silk Vita White contains nano sized gold particles with silk protein which are said to have high anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties and hence, can reduce the level of free radicals causing cell damage, on top of its UV protection effects.  The silk protein by the way, is developed by a Korean scientist and you can read an article about the La Soie range by Business Times here.

Vitamin C powder for skin

Powder does not oxidize that easily
I like the idea of using vitamin C powder as this means I don’t have to worry too much about oxidization. Plus, it is so easy and convenient to use. All I need to do is to shake some of the La Soie Silk Vita White into my lotion or cream, mix well and apply. Easy peasy!

Some stinging sensations on initial usage
When I first used the powder, I felt some stinging sensations and skin reddening which are common with topical usage of vitamin C. However, over time, this sensation subsided and I don’t feel anything much these days. It doesn’t irritate my skin anymore and in fact, I just like how it made my skin look and how much faster my scars are healing with this. Okay, it’s not an astounding difference but if you’ve ever had success with topical application of vitamin C products, you’ll know what I mean.

Almost  non-smelling
Dr Christine Cheng told me that she likes this vitamin C powder because it is easy to apply, non-sticky and non-smelling. I agree except for the smell. It’s not a bad smelling but when it is mixed with my tonic lotion, it does have this slight “rusty” smell – which is very similar to my DIY concoction.

Price and availability
Anyway, the 5g cost S$68 and is available at Divine MedSpa located at #02-15 Robertson Walk at 11 Unity Street.  For enquiries, call 6732 5578 or you can visit the Divine MedSpa website for more information.  I estimate that the bottle can probably last me about 1.5 months with twice-a-day usage. I think it’s fairly reasonable and this is something I would definitely recommend if you’re in the market for an effective vitamin C product for your skin.  Well, at least I know I’m going to stick to this vitamin C powder for awhile longer.

This product however, is only available to those in Singapore.  If you’re outside Singapore, there are probably a couple of other brands you can check when it comes to topical vitamin C powder – such as the Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder or the Marie-Veronique Brightening Supplement.

    ooohhh.. this vit c powder looks really fine and it’s a bonus that it heals scars quickly. does the reddness last for long peirods of time?

  2. alixana says:

    This is extremely tempting! I shall probably check it out one of these days…

  3. gem85 says:

    Gg to buy one and try.. since it can heal scar.. =)

  4. sesame says:

    No, it last for a couple of minutes only. And I realized it was also because I used a few shake. Generally, one or two shake of the powder is sufficient for the entire face. Now, I don’t even get anymore redness.

  5. sesame says:

    I find this is quite good without having to invest in a new product totally as it can compliment with any serums or creams we’re using.

  6. sesame says:

    Yes, applying vitamin C topically can help with scar healing. I find my new scars lightened up considerably. Waiting for those on the sides of my face to subside…

  7. sesame says:

    Forgot to add – $68 is before GST.

  8. gem85 says:

    OoO.. Thank for the info.. =)

  9. VANYA says:

    Wow interesting but I’m hesitant to put down $68 for 5g.. How many applications do you think this will last?

  10. sesame says:

    It should last between 1 – 1.5 months depending on how much powder you shake each time. One to two shakes are sufficient.

  11. joey says:

    hi! i’ve read through your interesting takes on organic skincare and quite agree that way too many products out there contain deadly ingredients. I’ve been on a lookout for a healthy firming cream for the face to no avail. anyone knows of any reasonably priced yet not full of junk replacements? My current bio-essence firming cream does wonders but contains parabens, urea and fragrance.

  12. sesame says:

    The problem with organic products is that the price points aren’t too attractive – at least for those products that can deliver results. What comes to my mind based on products I’ve tried are those from John Masters Organic and Living Nature. For those that are affordable, I’ve only used their basic products like cleansers or scrubs as their moisturizers usually do not contain any effective active ingredients. If you’re willing to try oils, then there are a few affordable pure carrier oil you can purchase. However, this means knowing your skin type too.

    Btw, what’s the price of your Bio-Essence firming cream?

  13. joey says:

    oh, i got it at 27.90 from one of the beauty stores at amk central. its way cheap compared to watsons which is retailing for about 37? i can really see that it delivers as my face appears sharper with lesser water retention the next day, but its only suitable for night use for sure! not so comfortable with all the parabens though, thinking of trying H20+’s skincare, lesser chemicals?

  14. sesame says:

    Not too sure about H20+. But quite hard to find good organic moisturizers at that price point…

  15. rhania escueta says:

    hi hun,

    where i could buy this? i hope i could try this one =) thanks for the info

  16. sesame says:

    It’s available at Divine Medspa in Singapore.

  17. melmok says:

    can i actually add the vitamin C DIY power to my daily moisturizer?

  18. sesame says:

    You definitely can…just that I can’t tell how much at the top of my head. I’ve used the powder before and it was in a shaker so I only used like one shake each time.
