To the SEPHORA STAFF MEMBER who posted the comment above. I am very concerned that you are misleading people by saying there is no vitamin c. As the comments above tell you what ingredient (i think the third or fourth on the list) is vitamin c. Anything with the name ascorbic or ascorbyl is the ingredient name for vitamin c. You will never see a product that states "vitamin c" in their ingredient list. I am concerned because as a staff member you are giving false information I would expect a staff member to know as it is common knowledge among anyone who knows about skincare. This is further troubling because the reason most people want to know whether there is vit c in products is because many other ingredients cannot be used in conjunction and the combinations can be harmful to the skin or render the ingredients useless because they cancel each other out. Please revise your statement.
It contains Vit C as ascorbyl glucoside, but this is what I googled: ascorbyl glucoside. Form of vitamin C combined with glucose. It can function as an antioxidant, but only minimal research substantiates this. The research that does exist combined ascorbyl glucoside with niacinamide (Source: Skin Research and Technology, May 2006, pages 105–113). It is possible the benefit resulted from only the niacinamide, and not the combination.
So it mighty not be powderful.

how misleading... YES there is vitamin c in this: ascorbyl glucoside (stable vit. c) is the first one, and grapefruit peel is another source of vitamin c.

Yes, it does contain a high level of vitamin C - I don't have the ingredient list in front of me but look for "ascorbyl glucoside" in the ingredients - this is a nice form of stablilized vitamin C.
