this unique vitamin & powerful antioxidant is vital for the growth & the repair of our skin. from supporting hydration & stimulating the formation of Collagen, to protecting against anti-aging & hyper-pigmentation, vitamin C is crucial.
we know that the primary function of the skin is to be a barrier & your first line of defense. also for those of you that don't know, our skin is composed of two layers:
- the epidermal, the outer layer which provides the barrier function
- the dermal, the inner layer which gives strength, structure & elasticity, & also feeds the epidermal layer.
vitamin C is essential & should be used daily to support the structure of the skin. the role of vitamin C in the production of collagen is to interact with amino acids within collagen cells. it adds hydrogen and oxygen to those amino acids, so that they may do their part in collagen production.
as we age the Collagen decreases which can cause your skin to sag & wrinkle. vitamin C has been shown to boost the quality of the Collagen produced.
vitamin C can be found in many different forms, citrus fruits, ascorbic acid, sodium ascorbate & many others. one of the forms we use is ascorbyl glucoside which is ascorbic acid encapsulated in glucose. this form allows vitamin c to be stabilized & absorbed deeply into the skin & quickly delivered to the area of the skin intended for.
vitamin C protects, replenishes, exfoliates, hydrates & brightens our skin to produce a more radiant, vibrant overall complexion. this powerful antioxidant enhances your skin’s natural defense system while helping to counteract the effects of oxidation, stress & free radicals by neutralizing damaging molecules.
vitamin C is an important vitamin to add to your daily regimen!
