Why is Vitamin C used in so many beauty products?
Have you noticed that many anti-aging beauty products have Vitamin C in their ingredient list? Vitamin C is a power house antioxidant that has been proven to change your skin for the better! Brands like SkinCueticals, Cinique, Kiehls, Kehlayli and many more use Vitamin C in many of their products!
Does Vitamin C penetrate deep enough for results?
In our 24K Gold Mask we chose a specific kind of Vitamin C that penetrates deeper into the skin to maximize results. Our Vitamin C has Isopalmitic Acid. The Isopalmitic acid allows the vitamin C to become oil soluble. Why is that important? Our skin has oil glands that make a barrier to protect and moisturize our skin. Our skin is covered in natural oils, these oils can act like a barrier to Vitamin C not allowing the product to penetrate deep enough. Thats why we have added Isopalmitic Acid to help drive Vitamin C deeper into the skin!
What are the benefits of Vitamin C for skin?
The antioxidant activity of Vitamin C protects against UV damage. It does not act like a sunscreen by blocking UV rays but it actually heals skin that is damaged and will lighten age spots. Vitamin C also plays a role in collagen synthesis which is important for photo damaged ‘sun damage” skin and intrinsic aging. Studies have shown that topical use of Vitamin C has shown to show a decrease in skin winkling. Vitamin C also works as an anti-inflammatory agent helping damaged skin heal quicker.
