Vit C-30 Vit C-30


Vit C-30™ Ultra Brightening Serum

In a study of 20 volunteers:

  • 100% agreed it improved skin brightness
  • 95% agreed it left their skin looking smoother

A powerful vitamin C serum with 30% ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid (one of the highest amounts to make it into a product). Helps to improve the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles now, and protects from pesky damage later.

When growing up we like to think we become wiser. Whether that’s perfecting the best roast potatoes or tactically telling someone they have spinach in their teeth. But with all this, we’ll inevitably have to tackle the skin ageing that comes along with it.

Vit C-30™ is jam-packed with a number of benefits for your skin. From its antioxidant protection to skin brightening to anti-wrinkle wizardry, this serum is one to have in your skincare routine. It’s time to take back control of skin ageing and restore clarity, improve skin suppleness, provide overall evenness and a tightening effect to boot.

So without going too much into science, we thought we would explain the ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid a bit more. Ascorbic Acid (aka vitamin C) in its purest form is highly unstable; meaning it reduces its effectiveness over time (oh no!). We therefore have a high level of stabilised vitamin C in Vit C-30 (hooray!) so therefore maximising its effectiveness over time. This acts directly on skin without needing the help of unpleasant solvents (which we don't like as they strip the skin of its moisture and can be irritating).

Perfect for

Vit C-30 is suitable for 30+ skin that has seen some action (ie sun damage, late nights, general fun).

How to use

Apply 3-4 drops to clean face, neck and upper chest then gently massage the serum in. Avoid the delicate eye area. Once applied, you'll feel the product on the skin. Perhaps a slight tingle? No problem! This is a good thing and means the product is working. As we like to say - Vit C-30 both tightens and brightens your skin.

Follow up with Hyasoft® if you fancy, then your favourite moisturiser or facial oil. Don’t forget SPF in the morning!

Tips for best use

The super-high concentration of vitamin C in Vit-C 30 means that if the bottle has been kept at cold temperatures (usually less than 5°C), the vitamin C can crystallise in the formula.

This is a totally natural process that can happen during the winter months and goes to show how much active we've managed to squeeze in the formula (30%) - we couldn't fit any more in if we tried!

Usually, Vit-C 30 will go clear when it warms to room temperature, but if the bottle has been through a particularly cold period, you may need to heat up the formula at home.

It's very straight-forward, just place the bottle in a bowl and fill with fully boiled water to the top of the glass of the Vit C 30 bottle. Leave for a couple of minutes, then carefully remove (holding the rubber dropper) and shake the bottle to get the crystals moving around inside. Place back into the bowl and after about 15 mins the formula should have cleared. Repeat all steps once more if any crystals remain.

Once the formula has totally cooled, you can enjoy using Vit-C 30 as normal and reap the benefits of this special serum.

vit c30

I need a product that will tighten my skin, and soften fine lines, minimising my large pores. I have yet to find something that will do all three ! I also don't have much time in the mornings for a complicated routine as I am on the go most days.

Very impressed with this product. Will certainly be using. Brightens, tones and firms skin. It feels soft without being greasy or sticky.

I'm already a big fan of the HERO Glow Oil, which I was given in a Beauty box. Now on my third bottle. Very pleased with HERO products- I hadn't heard of them before.

Already using Vit C-30? Tell us about it.

No. Vit C-30 has been made to be kind to sensitive skin. It is powerful, so please avoid applying close to the eye area. There are some fragrance allergens in the product which are part of the essential oils. We would always recommend that you try a small amount of the product first before normal application as our skin reacts differently to cosmetic products.
You sure can! All of our products work hand in hand if you want to use them all. We would recommend first off using Vit C-30 in the morning, followed by Glow Drops (if you fancy), Hyasoft and then lastly your favourite moisturiser. Oh...and don’t forget your SPF in the morning!
If you use topical vitamin C in your skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with Night Drops. Combining Niacinamide with pure forms of vitamin C can affect the integrity of both ingredients. We recommend applying vitamin C (aca Vit C-30) in the morning and Night Drops, guess what... at night.
The main ingredient you’ll find in Vit C-30 is stabilised vitamin C (Ethylated Ascorbic Acid). You will also find a beautiful blend of fab oils including, lemon, grapefruit, lime and geranium oil.
In the Vit C-30 bottle, there is a small well or dimple in the bottom. This allows every last drop of Vit C-30 to be reached. (So no more shaking a bottle into your hand.)
Yes, you’re right, eagle eye. Glow Drops is a facial oil with a shot of vitamin C. This is used to moisturise and hydrate the skin; giving a “just-come-from the-gym” type glow to the face (in a good way). It’s suitable for all ages and skin types. Vit C-30 on the other hand is a high strength, powerful 30% Ethylated Ascorbic Acid (vitamin C) serum. It’s a highly concentrated power punch of a serum to address signs of ageing like lines, wrinkles, uneven tone and dullness. If your skin has seen some action (ie sun damage, late nights, general fun) and you’re in or approaching your thirties and beyond, this serum is likely to be more your bag. Both products can even be used together if you like the sound of this clever duo - serum first on cleansed skin, then oil.

Amazing product highly recommended


My skin feels soft and less bags

Thanks to The Hero Project

Jane h

Thanks to The Hero Project for making my skin look wonderful.

I really like the texture it's not greasy and absorbs well on my skin


This product is amazing and fits in perfectly with my daily skincare routine. My makeup sits perfectly since using Vit C-30 my skin has become brighter.

I love it


Its a very nice product it dont dry up my skin and i love the smell.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to trial this product, I'm really happy with the results so far.


Love how it sinks into my skin, and whilst I have oily skin, it actually leaves my face matte looking which I like. When applied on a night time I wake up with soft, plump and my skin tone looks more even.

Non sticky, effective vitamin C serum


I've only used this for a couple of weeks and was hesitant to purchase given its an oil and I have oily skin. So far, I've used this in the day time only and it seems to sink in really well and doesn't disturb my face routine. However, I have not used this long enough to tell if there are any benefits yet..

Bowled over

Mrs. Grace

I received Hero Vit C - 30 serum this morning and was bowled over by the pack that my postman handed across. A fab bag, an Oyster card cover (just in time as mine has disintegrated), a couple of samples and detailed product info.
Thank you. I haven't started to use the product yet, but am already looking forward to it.

I'm loving it!

Diana Prest

I received my hero project pack and started using my vit c serum, I thought with it being an oil, it might leave my skin oily etc, but it didn't, I even used more than the recommended 3-4 drops! It soon dried into my skin and my face was so soft to the touch, I'm loving it!

Smells absolutely divine !

Rebecca Algar

Never tried oils before, always thought it'd make my skin feel greasy. When my bottle arrived my first thought was 'this looks like a quality item' with the smart design and present tattoo box. The victim c oil smells absolutely divine. I suffer with really dry cheeks and forehead but oily nose but despite that I applied it to my whole face and neck. My dry skin disappeared instantly and stay gone. Makes my face feel so smooth and fresh. I don't think I'll go back to plain old face cream after this. I also applied it to a burn on my wrist I got from the oven and it's healed beautifully without scarring or scabbing . I seriously can not praise this these oils enough ! ❤❤❤❤❤

Skin looks fresh and younger

Kerry Hezzell

I'm so impressed with the Vit C Serum I received from The Hero Project... After using for only one week my skin is softer, smoother and blemish free, fine lines are reduced, almost invisible, and my skin just looks fresh and younger ...
It is easy to apply, absorbs quickly and smells divine, I will definitely be using this again and would definitely recommend it !
