Why is vitamin C so important ?
If you are wanting to firm, brighten and protect your skin from free radicals, vitamin C should be an essential part of your skin care regime.
Vitamin C is packed full of powerful antioxidants which will help neutralize free radicals in the body. Antioxidants have been found to protect the skin from damage, reducing the appearance of premature signs of ageing.
Vitamin C has also been found to inhibit the production of enzymes which cause the skin to darken (reduces pigmentation) and promotes a brighter complexion.
When looking for products on the market containing vitamin C you will see the ingredient listed as ‘ascorbic acid’ this is the most stable and effective form of synthetic vitamin C.
Keeping our products all natural & organic we have sourced naturally occurring vitamin C from botanical & herbal ingredients.
Which ingredients contain vitamin C ?
Kakadu Plum is a native Australian fruit found in the northern parts of Australia. Naturally rich in vitamins C & E this fruit has been included in the Revitalize Face Mist to help encourage collagen production, protect against free radicals and reduce the appearance of premature signs of ageing. We recommend spritzing the skin with this facial mist after cleansing / exfoliating to deliver essential vitamin C to the skin.
Rosehip oil is derived from the fruit of the rosebush. Rich in vitamins C & A, Rosehip oil also contains essential fatty acids which help support overall skin health. Vitamin A will help to reduce the appearance of sun damage / pigmentation and wrinkles / fine lines. We have included Rosehip oil in our Vitalize Face Elixir to help nourish the skin.
Pineapple extract is also rich in vitamins C & E and has been included in our Fruit Enzyme Refiner to help brighten the skin's overall complexion. Pineapple enzymes will also help to loosen dead skin cells, revealing a smoother more refined complexion.
If you are wanting to enhance the effectiveness of your vitamin C it might be useful to incorporate vitamin E also. This will provide you with a double defense against free radical damage. We have included vitamin E in our Hydrating Face Cream & Vitalize Face Elixir.
