INCI: Ascorbic acid

This product is for external use only, it is not intended for use as a nutritional supplement.


Vitamin C  is a water soluble antioxidant and an important constituent of skin.  It plays a pivotal role in the prevention of dry skin and wrinkles, collagen synthesis and skin regeneration.  Vitamin C is found in all layers of the skin, but it is readily depleted by about two thirds in cutaneous tissue stores with exposure to UV light.

Vitamin C is crucial for the synthesis of collagen and topical application has been shown to be effective in increasing collagen deposits and also enhances collagen lattice contractions. This implies that exogenous Vitamin C application contributes to strengthening the collagen framework and maintaining a healthy skin. Furthermore, topical application of Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Again, this is due to its effectiveness in supporting collagen production. It has further been shown to reduce the severity of sunburns and age spots.

Cutaneous levels of Vitamin C cannot be achieved well by ingestion, hence topical application is essential for preventing oxidative damage resulting from pollution, smoke and sunlight.

Vitamin C

New to this but after reading info on Vitamin C powder decided to give a go. I am adding this to aloe vera and vitamin e oil and apply to skin before moisturiser at night. Am hoping for fading of brown spots on face and back of hands. Time will tell. Pure Natures service as usual brilliant.
