How Vitamin C Benefits the Skin

 

 

Today we are going to briefly discuss one of nature's best skin care 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, as this beautiful ingredient is found in our Advanced Botanicals Facial Moisturizer and in our Extra Moisturizing Face Cream.

Let's talk about Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate). Why do we using this ingredient in our facial moisturizers? 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.

The Skin Care Benefits of Green Tea
The Skin Care Benefits of Green Tea

Green Tea is a powerhouse antioxidant which has been shown to significantly promote collagen synthesis. It may also help to slow down the skin glycation process.

Choosing body care products formulated with Green Tea can help minimize the signs of skin aging caused by dietary indiscretions such as excess sugar consumption, which causes skin glycation. What is glycation? Simply put, it is the process of sugar proteins damaging the collagen and elastin in the skin. Too much sugar ages your skin, according to scientific research.

Green Tea is protective.

The EGCG in Green Tea also helps protect against free radicals. Free radicals not only impact your health, but they negatively impact your skin. UV damage, smoke and other pollutants can wreak havoc on your skin, accelerating the aging process and damaging cells. This damage causes collagen and elastin to break down, making you look older, as we just mentioned with the glycation process.
