Vitamin C, also known as L-Ascorbic Acid, is a water-soluble biological reducing agent. Synthesized by most animals except humans, we must obtain it through diet or other means. It also exists in the D conformation; however, the L-Ascorbic Acid conformation is considered the form most beneficial to the human body. It exists as a white crystalline powder or a clear aqueous solution. Vitamin C is relatively unstable and oxidizes in the presence of air or other oxidizing agents. The oxidized form is biologically inactive and can be identified if the solution is yellow or yellowish-brown.
A vitamin C serum has been shown to help protect against the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun by neutralizing the reactive oxygen free radicals (superoxide anion, singlet oxygen, hydroxyl radical, etc.) that are responsible for photo aging and for the destruction of dermal and epidermal connective tissues. If left unchecked, the free radicals are capable of mutating cells and destroying elastin and collagen thereby reducing the skins elasticity and texture.
The role of Vitamin C in assisting with the formation of collagen and elastin has been documented in scientific and clinical publications. The results of using Vitamin C in prescribed regimens and in conjunction with a broad-spectrum sun protection product has shown a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and an increase in hydration.
Directions: Apply 2 to 3 drops of the antioxidant serum to desired area and then massage with fingertips.
