302 Skincare C 12.5 Drops Key Benefits:
  • Fast acting on key skin receptors
  • Preservative free
  • Well tolerated vitamin C metabolite
  • Noticeable, visible improvement


Good for all skin types- Targeted Skin Type:

Uneven pigmentation and blemish prone skin will see visible improvement with 302 Skincare C 12.5 Drops.

Skincare Concerns:

Note that any vitamin C topical can quickly generate skin receptor fatigue. Over frequent application will reverse visible benefits. The skin should be ‘surprised’ by this metabolite.

High concentrations as found in C 12.5 Drops are best applied every three evenings (or even less – observe and adjust) is recommendedseem to work best.

Aging or youthful skin with uneven pigmentation and blemishes cannot be exfoliated to a more even tone or address unsightly age spots. Where it has lost its vitality and responsiveness new approaches are necessary.

How to use per concern:


Apply C 12.5 DROPS two or three times (2x-3x) per week, evenings (observe and adjust). Spread with Calming Mist.
After two weeks a second active may be introduced.
Do not exceed 2x per week if a second active is in play. An active partner for pigmentation would be a traditional retinol such as 302 Skincare A 0.5 Drops or for experienced retinol users 302 Skincare A 1.0 Drops, either used once per week. If you have used 302 Skincare A Drops or A Drops Rx you will find the gentle yet highly effective and skin friendly active retinol  in the following formula: Dermaki Skincare Vitamin A Complex as a suitable and effective option without the irritation commonly associated with traditional retinols.

Minimize other leave-on products at time of application. Apply in the evening to avoid a need for makeup and sunblock. No need for moisturizer following application.

Use only very mild products and very infrequently exfoliate. Exfoliation often increases visible pigmentation spots.

Discontinue active regime for 7 days every month to let skin rest from this active repair product regimen. In other words use for 3 weeks, then discontinue for one full week and repeat ongoing.

TIP: If you are prone to breakouts use 302 Skincare Revive to spread C 12.5 Drops or as a cleanser and a leave-on moisturizer to help keep visible blemishes in check.


Apply C 12.5 Drops 2x-3x per week, evenings.
New users- after two weeks use you may add any additional active.
302 Skincare Creramide Serum or Pro Hya+ would be appropriate choices to use twice per week with C 12.5 DROPS.
If you have three actives in play, limit every active to once (1x) per week application.
NEVER have more than three actives in play during a week. Limit every active to once per week to keep skin fresh and not saturated if three are in play.
Minimize other products, especially makeup and moisturizers, avoid chemical based sunblock/ SPF. Opt for mineral based formulas and apply if needed only opposite (use C 12.5 drops in the evening).


Beneficial for your skin if these conditions exist:

Exfoliating acids usage is infrequent

Benzoyl peroxide free for 30 days

Not inflamed or visibly unstable

Sensitive but not visibly unstable

Light to average makeup usage

Not beneficial for your skin if these conditions exist:

Inflamed, unstable skin

Frequent exfoliation

Unusual oral medications causing skin instability (i.e. chemo, cortisones, thyroid meds) may cause erratic skin behavior.

Recommended frequency of use:

Two or three times (2x-3x) per week (observe and adjust or contact us for assistance )

After one month discontinue current active(s) regimen and allow skin to rest for a 7-10 days before resuming. This will allow skin reactions further out to be fresh and not weakened by over frequent or prolonged application periods.

Cleansing Tips:

Two or three cleansers are recommended to be cycled through per week for best results.

Any 302 Skincare Cleanser or Face & Body Bar or gentle non-sudsing (sulfate free) cleanser combination is best.

Additional actives use with C 12.5 DROPS:

New Users- do not introduce another active for 2 weeks.

Do not apply a second active more often than 2x per week.

You could have a third active in play.

Three actives per week = apply C 12.5 Drops once per week (maximum).

If you have two or more actives in play AND are exfoliating frequently YOU WILL likely cause skin instability.

Additional leave-ons acceptable:

Calming Mist; recommended if two or more actives are part of your regimen.

Revive; use as needed anytime. In our experience, typically 1x daily use is best.

Remedy; (small pea sized amount for entire face) typically 1x daily. Can be especially helpful when inflammation/ irritation is a factor or to speed the healing of breakouts.

Light Moisturizer or Balance Moisturizer (on Actives free days or if needed, used sparingly am only – opposite C 12.5 Drops used evenings)
