The formula is expected to darken over time due to oxidation of the vitamin C. Oxidation is a natural process and does not necessarily correlate to degradation of vitamin C. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare controls the conditions through formulation and packaging to ensure maximum shelf life. It is recommended to store the bottle in a cool, dark place.
Don't Let The Scent Surprise You. L-Ascorbic Acid and Ferulic Acid are potent antioxidants and may emit a vitamin scent.
