Pointers With Portela: Why Does Vitamin C Serum Smell?

Article

In this week’s Pointers with Portela, the 208SkinDoc explains why vitamin C serums can occasionally have an unpleasant smell.

Dustin Portela, DO, a board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon at Treasure Valley Dermatology in Boise, Idaho, explains why certain vitamin C serums "smell" or have a slightly unpleasant odor. Portela mentions that the smell of vitamin C is dependent on how it's formulated and what additional fragrance is added to "mask" the natural smell.
