Vitamin C for Anti-Aging

Introducing Vitamin C for Anti-Aging

Vitamin C has become one of the most sought after and attractive ingredients in cosmetics in the last few years. And there is a reason! Its superpowers are well researched, and its effect on the skin is more than impressive.

What is Vitamin C?

Ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, is a powerful antioxidant that combats free radicals, reducing the damage caused by UV radiation and pollutants to the skin. Various forms of ascorbic acid are utilized in cosmetics, differing primarily in their stability—referring to their susceptibility to rapid oxidation and subsequent reduction in effectiveness—and the likelihood of causing skin irritation.

What are the benefits of vitamin C for the skin?

Vitamin C has been utilized for many years as an active ingredient in cosmetics, but its necessity is increasingly recognized due to its effectiveness in combating free radicals, reducing hyperpigmentation, and stimulating new collagen production.

So, here are its main benefits:

  • Anti-aging effectVitamin C has been clinically proven to stimulate collagen production, making the skin more elastic and dense, thus smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. By incorporating a vitamin C face serum into your daily routine, you can give your skin a fresher and more youthful appearance.
  • Depigmenting action –  Vitamin C suppresses melanin production, thereby lightening dark spots, evening out skin tone, and brightening the complexion.
  • Antioxidant protection – As one of the most powerful antioxidants, vitamin C protects the skin from free radicals that destroy collagen and elastin. It reduces the damage caused by solar radiation and shields the skin from inflammation and irritation.
  • Additionally, it improves the effectiveness of sun protection, acting as a shield against UV light damage. However, it’s important to note that vitamin C itself does not possess sun protection properties; rather, it helps counteract free radicals formed in the skin under sunlight exposure. Therefore, some dermatologists often recommend the simultaneous use of vitamin C with sunscreen and vitamin C for anti-aging.
How is vitamin C used?

A serum, cream, or fluid containing vitamin C is suitable for any skin type. The most visible and quickest results are often achieved by individuals frequently exposed to the sun or those with uneven complexions, fine lines, and wrinkles. Vitamin C products can be applied both morning and evening.

Morning application should be combined with appropriate sun protection, ensuring the skin is shielded from UV rays and hyperpigmentation.

Evening use also offers benefits, particularly in anti-aging efforts—stimulating collagen production, evening out the complexion, and brightening the skin. It’s best to choose the regimen that suits your needs, and remember to remain patient and consistent to achieve desired results.

What are the most stable forms of vitamin C?

While vitamin C occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables, it is commonly synthesized chemically for use in the cosmetics industry. The purest and most active form of vitamin C is L-ascorbic acid, but there are other derivatives utilized in creams and serums.

As mentioned, some forms of vitamin C oxidize quickly, leading to a sharp drop in effectiveness within weeks of opening the package or while on the store shelf. L-ascorbic acid itself falls into this category, requiring immediate use while it is still bioactive. Oxidized vitamin C is easily identifiable by its yellow colour.

Here are the most stable forms of vitamin C: ETHYL ASCORBIC ACID, TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE, MAGNESIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE.

Why we chose 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid for Pure Skin Brightening Serum with Vitamin C 15%?

The first and most important quality of 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid is its ability to penetrate the skin much faster than L-ascorbic acid, while providing the same effects and benefits as pure vitamin C for anti-aging.

A second advantage is its non-irritating nature, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. Its high tolerance ensures the absence of redness and irritation during use.

Last but not least, it is one of the most stable forms of vitamin C, maintaining its effectiveness while on the shelf. To ensure a long shelf life, the brightening serum from the Pure Skin series is packaged in an airless container with a pump that prevents air from further oxidizing the active ingredients.
