Bioelements Advanced VitaMineral C Complex Overview
The jury is in. Vitamin C is good for your skin. It’s really one of the best antioxidants we have and antioxidants are without a doubt one of the most important anti-aging ingredients there are. They fight off damaging free radicals that, left to their own devices, would destroy healthy skin cells one by one. Vitamin C also lightens and brightens skin by interfering with the action of melanin, the skin darkening pigment. It even helps encourage the production of new collagen.
So when we had an opportunity to take a look at Bioelements Advanced VitaMineral C Complex, we took it. According to the marketing materials, it’s been tested clinically and by dermatologists and found to be non-irritating, it clarifies and brightens skin tone, and it defends skin against dullness and aging.
The secret of Bioelements Advanced VitaMineral C Complex is the double dose of Vitamin C from Arerola Cherries. These little powerhouses contain 32 times more Vitamin C than oranges. This form of Vitamin C is also very penetrating, which is extremely important because an ingredient is only effective if it gets deep into the layers of skin where it needs to be.
Also included in the Bioelements Advanced VitaMineral C Complex formula are Mineral Ferments including Saccharomyces/Silicon, Magnesium, Copper, Iron, and Zinc Ferments. These work to detoxify the skin for even more clarity. They also bind to water to hydrate skin and plump out wrinkles.
Then there are the aromatic oils like Citrus, Rosemary, Bergamot, Coriander, and Sage that smooth and soften skin while providing a soothing scent.
Bioelements Advanced VitaMineral C Complex can be used day, night, or both. Simply apply gently to face and neck after cleansing.

Where to Buy
You can purchase Bioelements Advanced VitaMineral C Complex through Bioelements or other online skincare retailers. The .75 oz tube costs $50. We saw it for less at Amazon, but the only customer comment is about how she thinks she got the wrong or a defective product, so buyer beware.
We definitely think a good Vitamin C product is worth having. The hard part is finding the best one for the money. Personally, I think a serum would be a better call. That way you get the concentrated levels of active ingredients you want. If you get chance to sample Bioelements Advanced VitaMineral C Complex, you might find it to be fantastic. But if you have to go out and buy sight unseen, we think the $50 is probably more than it’s worth.
