The Classic Active Ingredient-vitamin C For Skin Anti-aging
- Dec 31, 2020 -

Vitamin C has appeared in many skin care products in recent years. Why does it become an effective skin care ingredient?

C

The first is safe and effective. In 2018, some scholars published a monograph in the world's top natural science magazine 《Nature》, reviewed the history of the application of vitamin C against skin aging, and highly recognized its safety and effectiveness of anti-aging. Pointed out that as a very efficient antioxidant,vitamin C has the biological activity of scavenging oxygen free radicals and relieving inflammatory reaction in vivo, which is helpful to alleviate the damage of skin caused by external injury factors (such as ultraviolet rays, pollutants, etc.) . Vitamin C can also provide a reductive microenvironment, which itself can promote the synthesis of collagen by skin cells. In other words, it can fight damage on the one hand, and promote collagen synthesis on the other.

Vitamin C for external use can also form a protective film on the skin surface to block part of the ultraviolet. It can be used as an effective supplement to sunscreen (it is impossible to block all ultraviolet rays).

It’s a water-soluble antioxidant, which can block melanin production and reduce melanin, neutralize free radicals, promote collagen production and inhibit acne. It’s one of the few skin care ingredients that have been proven by reliable scientific research to balance skin tone and reduce wrinkles.

When choosing skin care products which contains vitamin C, you must pay attention to its source, content, and whether there are derivatives. Because simple vitamin C is difficult to absorb through the skin, it can only be used as a protective layer on the surface of the skin to block part of the ultraviolet radiation. Fat-soluble vitamins C derivatives can be better absorbed,and can produce anti-oxygen free radicals continuously in the deep layers of the skin.

Moreover, the different principles of vitamin C and vitamin E in antioxidant can achieve the effect of 1+1>2. If the microencapsulation technology is used to "package" natural vitamin C and vitamin E ,the absorption rate of the two vitamins can be increased at the same time, and skin cells can be protected.
