More Than Just a 'Vitamin C Serum'
Botanical-C Serum culminates a potent blend of skin nutrients and synergistic co-factors, delivered in a luxuriously smooth serum, with a wonderful scent. Botanical-C Serum delivers more than just Vitamin C to your skin. It offers an entire compliment of nutritional constituents--constituents of the skin itself--plus important co-factors which stimulate healthy skin function and healthy assimilation of nutrients.
If you are familiar with the numerous skin care products, you have likely seen the high prices attached to Vitamin C serums. Yes, C serums do indeed work and enhance collagen! For this, they have gained much attention, and it is no surprise as to why; the basis for their effectiveness is elementary: skin nutrition. Silver Botanicals has taken Vitamin C serum further with Botanical-C Serum. We have avoided all of the skin clogging chemicals normally found in most C serums and added far more nutrients than typically offered. See the ingredients tab for more information.
How to use:
Apply 4-5 drops to clean hand/fingers. Apply directly to skin (wherever needed. i.e. face, neck, chest.). Apply in morning 20 minutes prior to personal skin regiment to provide antioxidant barrier throughout the day. Apply at night to promote skin rejuvenation.
What can I expect?
For the first two weeks of applying as directed, your skin will go through a process of rebalancing. During this period, it is not unusual to experience mild effects of detoxification (isolated break-outs of whiteheads, temporary blemishes, etc.). Plus, a rebalancing of the skin's microbiome may occur (changes to the microbial colonies of the skin).
Many also describe what could be called a 'saturation envelope.' Whereby, the rate of the skin's absorption of the serum may change over time from the onset of use. In most cases, skin absorption seems to be greatest upon beginning use of Botanical-C Serum. This period lasts for roughly two weeks (when used as directed). Thereafter, many describe a 'saturation point' whereby use of the serum may be decelerated to achieve the same results.
Of course, results will vary by individual. As always, use your best judgement and please feel free to address any concerns or questions to us. We are always happy to assist you!
A bottle of Botanical-C Serum will typically last 2-3 weeks of usage, when applied twice daily. As Botanical-C Serum is food grade product, containing no synthetic ingredients, the shelf life may be shorter than other conventional products (6 months recommended expiration). This is a choice we have made to provide our customers with quality natural skin care products they can feel good about using.

Also known as crystal-infused water or gem elixir, is a practice that involves placing gemstones in water in order to imbue the water with the energetic properties of the stones. This practice has been used for centuries in various cultures around the world, with the belief that gemstones have healing and transformative powers. The process involves carefully selecting specific stones, placing them in purified water over a period of time to absorb the energies of the stones. The resulting gem water is said to have a range of benefits, from promoting physical health and well-being to enhancing spiritual growth and emotional balance.
Our gem water is stored over crystals of rose quartz, quartz, amethyst, and fluorite. Rose quartz is said to have a calming and soothing effect, reducing inflammation and promoting cell regeneration. Quartz is believed to amplify the effects of other crystals, providing a boost of energy and clarity to the skin. Amethyst is known for its ability to calm the mind and reduce stress, while fluorite is thought to help balance the body's energy and promote mental clarity.
When used in a skin serum, the energetic properties of the crystals may help to promote a sense of balance and well-being, enhancing the body's natural healing processes and leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Overall, the use of crystal-infused water in a skin serum can provide a luxurious and effective way to support the health and beauty of your skin.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a popular ingredient in skincare products, particularly in serums, due to its ability to hydrate and plump the skin. The molecular weight of HA can affect its effectiveness in delivering hydration to different layers of the skin. Here are some benefits of serums using hyaluronic acid with different molecular weights:
- Low molecular weight HA: Serums containing low molecular weight HA can penetrate deeper into the skin and provide intense hydration to the deeper layers. It can also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can help to improve the skin's texture and firmness.
- Medium molecular weight HA: Serums containing medium molecular weight HA can provide hydration to the upper layers of the skin, helping to improve its overall appearance and texture. It can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- High molecular weight HA: Serums containing high molecular weight HA can provide a protective barrier on the skin's surface, helping to lock in moisture and prevent moisture loss. This can help to keep the skin hydrated and plump.
Our serum contains all 3 of these molecular weights of hyaluronic acid in a proprietary ratio to hydrate the skin, improve its texture and appearance, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

A wrinkle is defined as crease in the skin caused by the natural process of aging, excessive expose to the sun or extrenal environment. Fine lines, or also known as expression lines, is caused by contraction of facial musles during smiling or frowning.
What causes dry skin, and how can I improve it?
Dry skin is due to lack of hydration in the top layer of the skin, causing it to shrink. This can also lead to dry skin, itching, scaling, loss of elasticity, and tightness. One can improve hydration by applying hydrating materials that also promote retention of water. Botanical-C is rich in many of these types of ingredients.
Where should I store my Botanical-C Serum?
During normal use, store Botanical-C Serum at room temperature away from direct sunlight. For long term storage--in the case you wish to store your Botanical-C Serum for many months--refrigerate Botanical-C Serum in a plastic bag. After refrigeration, fully thaw your bottle in a cup of warm water until the formula becomes fluid again. Do not microwave!
What is colloidal gold?
Colloidal gold (also called nanogold) is nano-sized particles of gold suspended in water. In this way, it is just like colloidal silver. Although, colloidal gold has very different properties and benefits. Among it's reputed benefits is stimulation of cell regeneration / repair; anti-inflammatory activity and pain relief; calming of the nerves and mood; even the enhancement of IQ, as shown in multiple studies. The exact mechanisms of these effects are not fully known. Although, it is believed, in part, to be due to gold's electrical / conductive properties.
The Importance of a Quality Skin Serum
- by Dean DeWulf, Chief Chemist and Formulator
The skin, the largest human organ, is a wonderfully complex and amazing structure. From its diverse ecosystem of microorganisms, to the stratified layers of the epidermis, to the plethora of glands, nerves, capillaries and muscles in the dermis, it works continuously to protect us from, and presentable to, the outside world. How to better support and nourish this system - naturally, is a major focus of ours at Silver Botanicals. By the term “naturally,” we are only interested in using materials our body has evolved to work with over time e.g. no synthetic compounds, genetically altered or derived materials. Only substances found to occur naturally in our environment and known to support skin function. We are a firm believer in the philosophy that nature has provided mankind with all the materials needed for optimal health.
Cross-section model of the epidermis and dermis
Currently, the marquee product of our skin care series is our Botanical-C Serum. As the name suggests, it is a vitamin C serum, but we've taken it to the next level. Vitamin C serums have been of particular interest to the skin care industry. These serums sell in large volumes and their use is generally very well received due to their ability to dramatically improve the look & feel of the skin. However, most products are also packed with a long list of synthetic and artificial ingredients. A quick survey of some of the big sellers, even the ones claiming to be natural, will find they contain ingredients such carbomers, phenoxyethanol, & ethyl hexyl glycerin. Synthetic chemicals that are absorbed into our bodies and can disrupt the natural function of the skin. Another important negative impact these artificial materials may pose to the health of our skin is the disruption to the skin's microbiome. Our skin is literally teaming with bacteria. Most of which exist in a beneficial symbiotic relationship with our skin. This microbiome feeds on the materials our skin produce and the materials we put on it. Under natural conditions, different types of bacteria have evolved to live on different areas of the skin. Some are well-suited to live on our underarms while others have been found to exclusively live in our navels. While unsettling to some, this symbiotic relationship is vital to our health and is only beginning to be recognized. When we routinely apply synthetic materials to our skin over long periods of time, it often disrupt the ecology of the skin and hence the natural distribution of bacterial populations on it. These changes can occur quickly or over a longer period of time and can lead to intractable skin problems.
At Silver Botanicals, we have developed a superior all-natural Botanical-C Serum. We started with some of the most important quality ingredients required for healthy collagen growth. Collagen is critical for healthy skin internal structure. Two of the most important nutrients for this is vitamin C and an organic sulfur source. We use vitamin C, pharmaceutical grade made from non-GMO materials, and MSM, an organic sulfur source extracted from plants. One of the challenges with vitamin C serums is the delivery of it's nutrients deep into the skin. Most serums only deliver a small amount into the dermis (where structural collagen is actively formed). Our serums uses a variety of natural terpenes (found in essential oils) as penetration enhancers. These compounds help shuttle nutrients deep and efficiently into the skin. Other important ingredients are ferulic & hyaluronic acid. These compounds help improve antioxidant and moisture retention qualities of the skin along with many other beneficial effects. Our Botanical-C Serum has a very pleasant scent that is derived from the blend of 13 essential oils. Oils that have been known & used for centuries for their many beneficial effects, particularly focused on the skin. Some of these oils include frankincense, helichrysum, neroli, and roman chamomile. Each oil contains a multitude of compounds that work in a balanced and harmonious and concerted way to support the skin. Lastly, we use true colloidal gold and silver. Colloidal silver & gold are actually small clusters, approximately 30 atoms, of silver and gold metal suspended in the formula. Each drop of the serum contain trillions of gold & silver particles. These materials are extremely safe and invaluable in their ability to normalize skin bacteria and promote well-structured connective tissue. They are easily absorbed into the skin and do not bio-accumulate.
With a high level of expertise in chemistry and several decades of experience in high-quality chemical manufacturing, Silver Botanicals directly manufactures and oversees the quality control of its manufacturing of Botanical-C serum, from receiving of our ingredients to final packaging. We never outsource our manufacturing process and produce our serum in small batches. Once produced, our inventory is stored in refrigerated conditions until shipped. Silver Botanicals offer our serum in 1 oz. bottles with treatment pump or in 1/4 oz. vials with glass droppers. All containers are made of green glass to maximize shelf life. Currently, we have a 8-month shelf-life for our Botanical-C Serum.
Botanical-C Serum testimonials
This wonderful serum is the best I'v ever used in my life. I have trouble with uneven skin tone. This serum has cleared and evened out my tone. It tingles a little which mean it's working! It's a little pricey but well worth it. As long as I can afford it, I will keep purchasing this product. This stuff is amazing!

brightens skin but can cause/worsen blemishes
I liked the overall effect but think it broke me out a little. The serum has an interesting spicy scent that grows on you. It isn't sticky but isn't light either, needs time to sink into the skin (like many serums.) I found this really did even and brighten my skin noticeably! However my forehead had been having an uncharacteristic pimple flare-up when I started using this product and it continued through the use. When I ran out the blemishes cleared up almost overnight. I don't think this is a flaw in the product but an indication that it's not for all skin types. I would say my skin is more normal than combination, but I'm in my early \mid twenties so maybe I should limit oil in my skin routine. I recommend this to someone with mature or dry skin for sure. And for the price if you don't have serious acne problems I'd still say try it.

Love the all-natural ingredients. Not oily like other serums. Can't wait to see the difference. Thanks guys!!

I am very happy with this product and would highly recommend it
I have been using Botanical-C Serum Vitamin C for about six weeks. I will continue to use this serum indefinitely because
the expression lines on my face seem to be diminishing. The color and tone of my skin is healthier looking. I am very happy with this product and would highly recommend it. I have found it to be much more effective than other more expensive serums.
- loulew (via Amazon)
I have been using the Silver Botanicals Skin Serum (Botanicals C Skin Serum) for about three weeks. This is absolutely the best Vitamin C Skin Serum I have ever used. (I am 68 years old and have therefore used a large variety of prescription skin care and over-the counter products.) My facial skin looks and feels more youthful. I think the overall tone and color my facial skin is improved (especially targeted areas: expression lines around my eyes, forehead and mouth.) I wish I had taken before and after photos. In addition, the subtle fragrance is quite pleasant. I have had absolutely no unpleasant side effects. Check out the price! Quite a value. This seems to be a magical anti-aging skin potion!

The skin on my hands suffers sever punishment from being a machinist. This is the only product that keeps my skin from cracking and becoming eczematic and I have tried them all.
- R. Allen (Amazon review)
I'm nearly at the end of my first bottle and about to order my second bottle. Before using this my skin was kind of rough and uneven. This did wonders for my skin! It made it smooth and moisturized. I would recommend this natural product if your skin is sensitive and you want to avoid chemicals on your face.
- E. Law (Amazon review)
Best kept secret - a fountain of youth! This is a fantastic, natural skin rejuvenator. I've tried many facial products over the years (45 years of drug store, department store, home parties and spa brands), and most fall short of their claims and can cost an obscene amount. This one is a keeper - it's light, non-greasy, disappears into your skin, softens fine lines and wrinkles, and makes your skin incredibly soft. I'm very pleased with it, and with the reasonable cost. I've been using this product for about a year - saw immediate results as well as long term benefits. I love that there are no fillers, artificial scents, dilution, preservatives, etc. and it's made by an entrepreneurial, Texas, USA company. These people are great! (and no, I don't work for them, but have met them through using their products).
- HMS "HMS" (via Amazon)
I started using this Botanical-C Serum in March of 2012. At that time my skin was dry and older looking, as I am older and don't have as much collagen in my skin as younger people do. After three days of using it, just a few drops applied to the fine lines around my eyes and mouth, I noticed that my skin looked much more radiant and that people were starting to stare at me. Since at the time I had been feeling rather invisible, it was nice to be noticed again. The vitamin C must have awakened my energy and appearance.
After a couple of weeks, I determined that I had found the fountain of youth in a way that wouldn't harm my skin, as C is an anti-oxidant and skin is the best way to deliver it to the body.
After two months, my friends were commenting on how beautiful I looked, and I started carrying my little serum bottle along in my purse so I could show them how lovely its package was and tell them more about it. I applied it to the backs of many hands.
It softened them all. It makes a great girlfriend gift.
I have tried many products, natural shea butter creams, oils on my skin, and all sorts of natural ways to get my skin more hydrated. I have to say that this product outshines anything that I have tried, and I love it. It is priced reasonably and it really works. I can only thank the team at Silver Botanicals for creating such a gift for those of us who are buffeted by the winds of age. I feel and look years younger when I use this serum. Thank-you, Silver Botanicals!
- Dogstar (via Amazon)
I have been using this serum for many months now. My skin has been so clear and soft. It has made a difference with my skin so much so that several people who hadn't seen me in a while thought I had a face lift. I highly recommend this to everyone.
- SpearShaker (via Amazon)
I am always very skeptical about Vitamin C products - usually, they do not last long, or have issues with how effective they are due to being in unstable formulas. Or if they're one of the good ones that are stable, they are very very expensive. What makes this serum amazing is that it's stable (but easy to keep in the frig if you want to make sure it stays extra fresh), it has a lovely silky texture that makes it suitable for either applying alone under a moisturizer or mixing with a moisturize or other oils, it smells good, and it's SO affordable. I'm done with overpriced stuff that doesn't do anything spectacular. This serum and these guys at Silver Botanicals are the real deal.
