CE-Thione – Rechargeable Vitamin C™
Medik8 is delighted to introduce its latest innovation in Vitamin C technology:
CE-Thione™ which showcases a totally new concept in skincare called:
Rechargeable Vitamin C™
Facts about Vitamin C:
- It is essential for the synthesis of collagen
- It is essential for the transportation of collagen molecules into the dermis
- It is an excellent antioxidant
- It reduces pigmentation
Potent Vitamin C is clinically proven to have an anti-aging effect on wrinkles.
CE-Thione research started by going back to first principles and studying how Vitamin C is actually stabilised in the skin naturally and then mimicking this process in the bottle. It turns out that nature had the answer all along!
How does it work?
Vitamin C is ‘recharged’ by having two antioxidant ‘allies’ in solution with it: Vitamin E and L-Glutathione which regenerate the Vitamin C molecule when it is used up, delivering an incredible potency.
This clever formula effectively recharges itself and stays potent without the need of lots of chemical additives which lead to greasiness and poor smell characteristics.
CE-Thione™ was presented to attendees of the annual FACE conference in June 2012 at the Royal College of Physicians in London, and had an incredible reception: CE-Thione™ is now the world’s first clinically proven “Rechargeable Vitamin C™” serum.
CE-Thione is an oil-free lightweight serum that penetrates quickly, leaving the skin soft and smooth.
Medik8 is committed to delivering breakthrough technology with fair pricing.

Introducing a revolution in antioxidant skincare, the new Medik8 Vitamin C technology: CE-Thione™. Vitamin C is an essential anti-oxidant in our anti-aging arsenal, fighting free radicals and clinically proven to help combat lines and wrinkles. L-Ascorbic Acid is the most commonly used form of Vitamin C in skincare but it is incredibly unstable and oxidises easily in water turning it from a beneficial antioxidant into a pro-oxidant. This means you are in fact applying free-radicals to your skin! Because of the risks associated with unstable L-Ascorbic acid products, Medik8 have developed CE-Thione™ Rechargeable Vitamin C™, a highly stable L-Ascorbic acid complex that remains 100% stable for two years.
After more than three years of research and development, Medik8 scientists led by Founder Elliot Isaacs, have successfully created a product that mimics the natural method used by our own bodies to keep vitamin C stable in the skin. The vitamin C in CE-Thione is ‘recharged’ by having two antioxidant ‘buddies’ in solution with it. They are vitamin E and Glutathione. These three antioxidants, in perfect balance, work in synergy to recharge each other so that they stay potent and active while on the skin and exposed to the atmosphere. This natural process not only stabilises the product in the bottle but it also prolongs the effect of vitamin C throughout the day, providing a longer lasting antioxidant protection and better anti aging benefit.
CE-Thione™ is the most effective way to deliver a stable form of vitamin C while guaranteeing that it works at its highest potential in the skin. It helps neutralise free radicals, build collagen, and provide high antioxidant protection. CE-Thione™ helps improve the appearance of skin tone & texture, while simultaneously minimising pigmentation marks and early signs of skin aging. All in a luxurious lightweight serum that has been formulated for daily (morning) application to the skin.
