Ascorbic acid (vitamin C; 20%) is an effective antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals responsible for environmental skin aging. Aggressive free radicals are generated by increasing environmental pollution, smoking and excessive sun exposure and can irreversibly damage cells. This accelerates the aging process of the skin, the skin loses its elasticity at an early stage, and the overall appearance of the skin structure deteriorates. In addition, dark spots (age spots) can form.
Ascorbic acid prevents the formation of melanin, stimulates the formation of the skin’s hydro-lipid film and improves collagen synthesis, one of the most important skin proteins responsible for the structure and elasticity of the tissue.
Vitamin C is used especially for photoaging, uneven skin texture and to fight wrinkles.
