Ascorbic Acid is the most researched form of Vitamin C for skin benefits. It is an effective skin-soothing agent and antioxidant that can enhance the appearance of signs of ageing.
What are the benefits?
Ascorbic acid is an effective skin-soothing agent and antioxidant that can enhance the appearance of signs of aging and neutralise free radicals from oxidative stress (exposure to UV rays, pollution and smoking).
Aside from being an excellent antioxidant, Ascorbic Acid stimulates collagen production, which has the potential to thicken the dermis, reduce fine lines, and is necessary for firm, youthful skin.
Ascorbic acid also aids in the reduction of hyperpigmentation and brown spots, the evenness of skin tone, and the enhancement of skin radiance. Ascorbic Acid is a particularly vulnerable antioxidant when exposed to UV light and air, it must be packaged to protect it from these elements during routine use to maintain its effectiveness.
Look for airless, UV protective bottle. To stabilise Ascorbic Acid in an aqueous formulation, the pH level must be below 3.5.
