Today we are going to briefly discuss one of nature's best anti-aging ingredients. You see, we don't think you should have to choose between better ingredients or better anti-aging results. We give you the best of both worlds.

You may have heard in the past that Vitamin C is great for the skin, but may have been unsure why it is so beneficial. There are many types of Vitamin C used in skin care and there is an abundance of notable research to validate both the efficacy and stability of Ascorbyl Palmitate. This is important to note because some forms of the vitamin break down much more easily.
