Vitamin C, due to its multiple functions, has become a fashionable ingredient in cosmetics. Its routine use returns to the skin the vitality, elasticity and firmness lost over the years. Also highlight the depigmenting and unifying properties of the tone.
Its high antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-glycation and repairing power makes it an essential nutrient to prevent premature aging of the skin. It not only protects us from solar radiation (UVA, UVB), blue light (blue light) or free radicals (exposure to pollution), but also contributes to the protection of the basic unit of cells, DNA, the synthesis of structural proteins and polysaccharides such as collagen or hyaluronic acid and tissue repair. Therefore, a beauty ritual that includes vitamin C (from 4%) allows to boast a hydrated, smooth, luminous, soft, smooth, supple and with less wrinkles.
Its depigmenting ability is another characteristic to mention. Vitamin C in high concentrations (from 10-15%) inhibits melanogenesis allowing to reduce the spots and unify the tone of the skin. Its continued use also prevents hyperpigmentation or appearance of spots.
The cutaneous efficacy of vitamin C is greater when applied topically, directly, than when it comes from oral administration, from food or food supplements. The latter is not stored, that is, our body uses only what it needs and eliminates the rest. Hence the importance of including it in your facial care in the form of a serum, cream, mask or ampoule.
This molecule in its pure state (ascorbic acid) is sensitive to heat and light and therefore tends to degrade/oxidize easily. To avoid this and maintain its activity in Neftis Laboratories we formulate with a derivative of equivalent activity, its ethylated form, ethyl ascorbic acid. It is of high purity and stable over time, and it has been shown that once absorbed it is transformed into ascorbic acid.
With the intention of achieving magnificent results we have developed a line of products highly concentrated in vitamin C. Among them we highlight the formats in ampoules, serums and clay masks with 5, 10 and 15% of vitamin C.
Do not hesitate to ask us for more information and samples about this new line that will undoubtedly be a great contribution in its range of cosmetics. A great opportunity to bring the multiple and powerful effects of this molecule closer to our dear users in their usual beauty ritual.
