The Number 1 Wrinkle Reducing Ingredient
Most of us are reaching blindly for our skin care products, slapping them on, and hoping that the mysterious ingredients in them are making our skin smoother. But how much do we really know about those ingredients? The one thing that is going to keep you looking youthful is vitamin c, which is an essential component in the body’s production of collagen and a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate aged and sun damaged skin.
There are two types of vitamin c, the fat-soluble form of vitamin C ester and the water-soluble vitamin C (ascorbic acid). However, the vitamin C ester performs eight levels higher than ascorbic acid. This is due to the fatty membrane that is able to regenerate vitamin E as it’s continuously fighting off free radicals.
Vitamin C ester also has the ability to to activate growth of cells called fibroblast,which help assist in producing more collagen and elastin.
Lastly it has a stronger efficacy in topical solutions compared to the water-soluble vitamin.
