Description

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.
