Vitamin C possesses definite, scientifically validated virtues that really do prevent and reduce wrinkles as well as rejuvenate skin, but what products really work? Why do some products with Vitamin C not work as effectively as others. Well, here are some interesting facts that may help you choose your next skin care product:
- Vitamin C is an indispensable component of collagen synthesis – the most important structural element in skin that aids in wrinkle prevention and elasticity.
- Vitamin C is an all natural antioxidant that helps skin protect itself against free radicals.
- Vitamin C is easily oxidized because of its instability. This means that products containing Vitamin C should be tightly sealed to ensure its potency.
- You can evaluate the oxidation of your Vitamin C containing skin care products by checking for yellowing of the product.
