Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a Natural Antioxidant

EWG Rating
Skincare Ingredient Safety Review

Scientific Name: {Ascorbic acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate}
Common Name: {Vitamin C}

Vitamin C is one of the best antioxidants used in skincare products. It is also the most abundant. It neutralizes age-promoting free radicals that are caused by oxidative stress, plus it inhibits inflammation. The power of vitamin C was first discovered by sailors on the ocean for weeks without any fruit. Even if they had all the other necessary nutrients, they became very sick, even to the point of developing bleeding disorders and ulcers on the skin.

Researchers discovered that fruit was an essential part of the human diet and must contain some substance that our bodies find vitally important. Later, it was discovered that this substance is vitamin C. Though in modern times, we rarely suffer from such an extreme lack of vitamin C, our bodies may fail to utilize it properly.

Using a product that contains vitamin C is extremely beneficial. Not only does it act as one of the world’s most powerful natural antioxidants, but it is also naturally anti-bacterial, aids in collagen production, helps to build the proteins that the skin needs to regenerate, and stimulates blood flow. Few other ingredients can boast such a wide array of benefits.

Benefits of Topical Vitamin C

    • Inhibits Inflammation
    • Brightening
    • Supports Collagen and Improves Thin Skin
    • Evens Skin-Tone and Reduces Spots
    • Reduces the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

When our skin is over-exposed to UVA and UVB rays from the sun, premature aging can start. Free radicals begin careening through the cells. This, in turn, produces more unhealthy cells. If left unchecked, sometimes they can cause cancer. When vitamin C is applied to the skin, it gathers up and neutralizes these cells, eliminating their ability to wreak havoc on our skin.

Plus, giving it a chance to stay healthy. This is one of the most vital processes of this ingredient, as it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging caused by photo-damage. This, paired with its ability to boost collagen production, really helps to firm and plump skin from within.

A natural skin lightener, C, doesn't just make skin look better but helps it be healthier to appear brighter naturally.

As a natural anti-bacterial ingredient, vitamin C helps to combat blemishes. It helps improve the skin’s ability to get rid of a pimple or expel the impurities that cause discolorations. Most acne is caused by bacteria combining with our body’s natural oils, which are then trapped in a pore. By killing off this bacteria, there is less of a chance that acne will develop.

Vitamin C improves blood flow. The dermis is better able to fight off and protect your complexion. This influx of blood renews for a healthy complexion. This ensures that it is less susceptible to impurities.

Incorporating Vitamin C into your diet can benefit the whole family. Adults get the antioxidant protection they need, and kids get the health benefits of stronger bodies and respiratory systems. One downside is that it is not stored in our bodies. Making it is necessary to consume foods high in C every day. This naturally-occurring nutrient is easily obtained from dark leafy greens, the pulp of fruits, and everyday herbs.
