DetailsOur skin is under constant attack from environmental factors and, as we age, the protective systems of our body become over-worked and begin to break down. Fight back with VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum.OPCs are powerful extracts, rich in bioflavonoids found in grape seed, pine bark and red wine. These extracts contain a high content of polyphenols and are effective in helping free radicals. These extracts promote firm skin, and support the elasticity of skin. Other ingredients in VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum, such as vitamins C and E, hyaluronic acid and yeast beta-glucan extract, moisturise the skin for optimal skin health.This revolutionary formula utilises a unique delivery system called Lipoplex™, created exclusively for use in VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum. The Lipoplex system uses unique nutrient carriers for deep absorption. LipoplexTM delivers nutrients and antioxidants using a prolonged and controlled time release for maximum absorption and benefit. More importantly, it extends product efficacy while reducing skin irritation. The vitamin C in VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum is not mixed with the formula during manufacturing due to vitamin C’s naturally unstable composition. Instead, the vitamin C is mixed in directly before using the product. This ensures that the vitamin C will not oxidise before being used and the customer will receive full benefits from VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum.VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum should be applied daily and can also be used separately with wonderful results.

FAQsWhat is the purpose of the VitaShield™ OPC-3™ Triple Serum? VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum is an advanced antioxidant shield that protects the skin from free-radicals. Its patent pending LipoplexTM delivery system allows its beneficial ingredients to be deep absorbed into the skin where they provide maximum protection and benefit.Why isn't the vitamin C mixed with the other ingredients when it is manufactured? Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is very unstable and begins to oxidise shortly after it comes into contact with the aqueous solution. If the vitamin C was mixed with the other ingredients, during manufacturing, by the time the customer received it the oxidation process would have eliminated all of its benefits.How much vitamin C is in the VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum? Each capsule contains approximately 210 mg of 100% pure vitamin C. This equates to 3% of the total formula.How do I use VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum?
When do you recommend using VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum? VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum should be applied in the morning after cleansing and toning. Apply several drops to your fingertips and spread over facial area. Use VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum every day. On days where you have prolonged exposure to the sun, use morning and evening.Why must I use this product within 10-12 days after it has been activated? Vitamin C remains fully active for about 12 days after it comes in contact with an aqueous solution. VitaShield OPC-3 Triple Serum is in an emulsion which contains water. Each vial contains sufficient product to last 10-12 days. More importantly, you should use this product every day for maximum free radical protection.Why should I use antioxidants topically? Antioxidants are effective in fighting the effects of free radicals, but when taken orally, antioxidants encounter the natural oxidation process that occurs in the body when free oxygen molecules interact with body tissue and other materials in the body. This process can prevent the benefits of oral antioxidants before they are able to reach the skin. Applying antioxidants topically ensures that the skin is protected from harmful free radicals.
- To ensure proper application follow the steps below:
- Remove the silver neck band.
- Place vial on a hard surface (not on glass), or hold firmly in your hand. Press down firmly on the activator cap (the white piston valve on top of vial) to release the vitamin C into the vial. The piston can also be pushed down using the thumb. Note: The piston should be depressed completely.
- Tap the top of the vial to assure that all of the vitamin C has dispersed into the vial.
- Shade the vial vigorously for about one minute to mix the pure vitamin C with the emulsion.
- Remove the plastic inner cap.
- Replace inner cap with the white applicator tip.
- Your 10-12 day treatment is ready for use. Using the flexible tip of the white applicator cap, squeeze a few drops onto your fingers. Massage into skin on face and neck until completely absorbed. Avoid the areas around the eyes to ensure there is no irritation.

My STAR FAVOURITE skincare items in Year 2020
You know the product works when one receives compliments in wave..... And everyone is curiously asking what I do.
They are amazed by my glowing complexion which surprises me as well.
Without doubts, the OPC 3 with the combination of Vit C are fully absorbed by me. Proven product and PLEASE, get one box (together with OPC 3, both inner and outer care) to experience the AWE feeling.
I am glowing like a STAR …. Not exaggerating....
Amazing! Even my husband asked me what I'm using!
I think this product is given too little attention because the results are absolutely amazing! It absorbs well and does not leave the skin tacky. Within the fist vial, results are very obvious! My skin is absolutely glowing from within and whiteheads and blackheads are visibly lesser! Makeup application is so much smoother and my skin feels young again! I put just a little more before going to sleep and next morning, I'm looking at Snow White! My husband even asked me what I'm using and wanted to try! After first application, he said not bad and next day asked me for some again!

Great for brightening up your dull face. With just one bottle after application, my face looked brighter and fairer.
