The Power of Vitamin C

Hello March, 

Bluebonnets are starting to bloom, and the sun has returned to the Hill Country!  With spring just around the corner your Refinery Estheticians want to chat about one  of our favorite ingredients to assist your skin in protection and repair…. VITAMIN C! 

Vitamin C is one of the most professionally researched and proven skincare products  on the market, and this absolute game changer is well worth your investment. 

Why do we need to apply topical vitamin C?

Unfortunately, the human body is not  great at synthesizing vitamin C, so only a small fraction of what you ingest will be  available for your body to use. To make matters a bit trickier for the skin, as we age  our vitamin C supply depletes more and more.  

So, that means with a limited supply available, your body will choose to prioritize its  vitamin-c to repair your liver from last night’s glass of wine. A lack of Vitamin C in the  skin can leave your skin looking and feeling dull and more pigmented. 

That’s why this month at The Refinery Spa is all about the best vitamin c serum on  the market:  


Catalyst is in a class of its own because there is NOTHING else like it on the market.  It is clinically proven and FDA approved to repair DNA damage. While catalyst AC-11 heals damage deep within cells, these defense conditions are allowed to fade away. 

Other amazing clinically proven benefits: 

  • Achieve 110% increase in elasticity 
  • Reduce broken capillaries and redness by 64% 
  • Decrease scar tissue 
  • Provide a 15% tightening of eyelids 
  • Reduce pre-cancerous skin lesions by 15% 
  • Boost collagen production 
  • Guard against degradation of your existing collagen 
  • Shed skin tags – seriously, they just fall off 
  • Improve skin radiance and luminosity by 32%

Are you concerned with unwanted pigmentation? If so, Catalyst AC-11 is a must to  protect and repair your skin.  

As we age our skin begins to break down from free radical damage, sun exposure,  pollution, toxins etc… Pigmentation is your immune systems way of creating  protective umbrellas in the skin where there is significant damage. As much as we  hate the dreaded age spots, your body produces pigment with a purpose. This means  we need to repair the damage that has been done deep inside the skin to truly get  rid of the pigmentation.  

Catalyst AC-11 will reverse skin damage from deep within the cell. Even IPL or skin  lasers cannot repair the damage from within… In fact, skin lasers can only reach the  surface pigment and force it out. Lasers leave the cells more damaged and, as I have  repeatedly seen first-hand, a few years after laser treatments those pesky  pigmentation spots will return with vengeance.  


OsmosisMD serums are concentrates which means you are not paying for a product  that is mostly water. However, since they are highly concentrated, they are thicker in  texture and need a little activating to mist. Mixing Catalyst and infuse activating mist together will increase the amount of active ingredients that penetrate the living  layers of your skin. 

This month when you purchase a Catalyst AC-11 (Vitamin C) DNA Repair serum you  will receive a FREE full-sized bottle of Infuse Nutrient Activating Mist.  

To kick off some glowing spring skin we will be offering a limited-edition facial that is  packed full of Vitamin C from beginning to end. This 1-hour “Get the glow” Vitamin C  facial will still be customized to your skin type but, will nourish your skin with the  power of vitamin C for the ultimate in hydration and brightening!
