ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C) is essential to health and life. Ascorbic Acid is essential for the production of procollagen and the precursor to collagen synthesis. It also plays a vital role in elastin production. It is also a potent free radical scavenger. Vit C, in the ascorbic form, also reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation and helps speed up the healing process within the skin.

How does Vitamin C work?

Vitamin C when used topically helps reduce free radical damage caused by sun exposure, pollution and smoking. It also has wound healing capabilities and antioxidant properties. When Vit C is used with Vit E, antioxidant effects are more potent due to a synergistic effect.
