Vitamin C Skin Care Products

Vitamin C also known as Ascorbic acid is a water soluble nutritive vitamin, meaning it is not synthesized by the human body.  Vitamin C is required in the synthesis of collagen in connective tissue, and helps protect the body against free radical pollutants by donating electrons to oxidized cells.  Topical vitamin C has shown to protect the skin from UV damage caused by prolonged sun exposure by reducing the amount of free radical formation and/or sunburn cells.  Exposure to UV light has also shown to decrease the naturally occurring vitamin C levels in the skin, thus topical application of vitamin C restores these photo-protectant levels.  Other studies also suggest that vitamin C may play a part in the collagen synthesis by activating collagen metabolism and increasing elastin.

Vitamin C is most commonly called L-ascorbic acid, ascorbic acid, or ascorbate.  Ascorbic acid acts as a support partner to the amino acids necessary to the function of collagen, and contributes toward creating a stronger dermal matrix. This in turn fights free radical damage caused by environmental exposure, one of the major causes of dermal weakening and loss of collagen.
