- Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone : Also called NHDC, it is a low calorie sweetener and flavor enhancer that can be produced by hydrogenating neohesperidin, a flavonoid naturally found in bitter oranges. Previous studies suggest that flavonoids, for the most part, scavenge free radicals from the skin, promote skin metabolism, reduce pigmentation, and hydrate the skin. As a derivative of flavonoids, Neohesperidin dihydrochalcone has antioxidant and lightening activity. In a study that compares 3 bleaching agents (arbutin, kojic acid and VC) in common use with Neohesperidin dihydrochalcone, it appears that the latter has an excellent comprehensive performance, it is a new type of bleaching agent that has a greater inhibitory activity of the tyrosinase.

Summary analysis Liftactiv antioxidant and anti-fatigue dose of Vichy
We know that the formula includes 15% pure vitamin C (ascorbic acid), which may not be the best source of vitamin C available, as it can irritate the skin.
I would not recommend it for sensitive or dry skin, but maybe normal, oily or combination skin can tolerate it.
But perhaps what these skins do not tolerate are the ingredients that follow, such as alcohol, irritant or toxic ingredient.
For example, dipropylene glycol has irritating properties and is minimally toxic, although in most products it is used in such low concentrations that the impact would be minimal. But it is in the formula it is in the fourth place, and then it is worrying.
The active ingredients are good, since in addition to vitamin C, there is a fairly good bleaching agent, vitamin E, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. The failure is that the latter are in a very small proportion, and they will contribute little to the formula.
Nezeni Cosmetics vitamin C serum is a much more recommended option than the previous one, not only for what it adds: a lot of active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, antioxidants, emollients, etc., in very good proportions; but also for what it lacks.
No irritants, sensitizers or alcohols, which make it difficult to repair dry, sensitive or damaged skin.
