The true measure of Ester-C®
Topical's effectiveness came in a controlled test using
39 volunteers. Participants in the study discontinued use of
other creams and lotions, and applied 2% Ester-C®
Topical cream twice a day. The women - predominantly
middle-aged - evaluated the cream for four to five
weeks, using it on the face, hands, legs, heels and elbows.
Most were "medium" complected and had "dry"
skin. Rough and/or chapped skin was reported to be the most
common skin problem. Split skin and acne were also frequently
noted at the start of the survey. The results:
70% reported improvement in skin roughness.
45% reported improvement in scaliness and cracks in the
33% reported reduction in wrinkles.
25-35% reported reduction in itching and redness.
75-80% were satisfied with the moisturizing and soothing
properties of the cream.

"it soothed my hands right away"
"it had a lasting hydrating effect on my skin"
"it was very soothing"
"it improved my alligator skin a lot"
"it made my skin look healthier"
"I consider it a miracle ointment. No other moisturizer
or cortisone creams worked like this one."
"My skin is much softer. I had people feel both arms
without telling them why. Everyone said the skin on my
left arm (where I applied the product) felt softer and
"It protected my skin even in the pool and hot tub
at the gym. The rest of my skin dried up with the chlorine,
but my legs and heels are soft and supple."
"My hands are in dishwater eight hours a day, and
the cream seemed to last longer than hand lotion."
