EmerginC 20% Vitamin C Serum contains stable forms of vitamin C along with Vitamin E and glycolic acid. The combination of these ingredients promises to protect your skin against free radicals, UV damage and skin aging.

People react differently to skin care products. While some can give you the results you want, there are products that can break your skin out.

And because we understand the uniqueness of your skin, we are giving you more options. We have a list of the best brands which you can check out here and a review of EmerginC 20% Vitamin C Serum.

About The Brand

EmerginC is a skin care brand that uses all-natural ingredients for its 60 different skin care products. They also use recycled materials for their packaging.

The brand has been around since 1997 and now sells product to almost all parts of the world. It claims to be one of the very few companies to recognize and take actions against the dangers of parabens and synthetic ingredients in skin care products.

Main Ingredients

EmerginC combines two powerful vitamins when it comes to fighting free radical damage and boosting collagen production- vitamin C and vitamin E.

It has Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Ascorbyl Palmitate and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate as its forms of vitamin C and Sodium Tocopheryl Phosphate as its vitamin E. On top of these two ingredients, the serum also has ginseng extract, Vitamin F and sweet orange oil.

Uses and Effects

EmerginC 20% Vitamin C Serum is intended for people who needs intensive vitamin C treatment. It diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, improves skin texture and makes pores appear smaller.

After 1 week of use, some of its users were able to see a noticeable improvement in their skin texture. They even saw a reduction in their fine lines.

Even if you’re not dealing with wrinkles yet, you can still use the product to slow down the signs of skin aging. It’s also good to use if you want to make your skin softer and a lot more radiant.

Unfortunately, however, although the product contains a handful of stable vitamin C, it also has some irritating ingredients, particularly its sweet orange oil content. This extract is added to the serum for its citrus scent.


The serum is orange in color with sphere-shaped particles suspended in it. It has a gel-like consistency that leaves a slightly tacky feeling on the skin.

As you massage the product on your skin, this tackiness dissipates quickly and you’ll end up with soft and smooth skin.

How To Use

Take 2 drops or more of the product to cover your face, neck and chest area. Since it gets absorbed quickly, you need to work fast in distributing the product evenly on your skin.

Use it once or twice a day and keep in mind to hydrate your skin after.


This EmerginC Vitamin C Serum is packaged in a cylindrical plastic bottle. It comes with a pump applicator that makes dispensing more hygienic and the product more sanitary.

You just have to be careful when dispensing the product since controlling the amount you get from a pump is harder than using a dropper.

The bottle is not transparent which means you won’t be able to easily see if there’s any change in the clarity or color of the product. Because of this, make sure to check the characteristic of the serum that goes out of the pump before actually applying it on your face.

The Verdict

  • Contains stable forms of vitamin C
  • Environment-friendly packaging
  • Gets absorbed quickly

What We Didn’t Like
