Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient required for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body including the skin, but can't be produced on it's own.


As an antioxidant, one of Vitamin C’s main functions is protecting the skin. Normal cellular processes, as well as environmental insults like ultraviolet light and pollution, create free radicals in the skin. Free radicals are inherently unstable molecules that damage cells, promoting skin dullness and wrinkles.

Vitamin C also plays an important role in the collagen synthesis. Collagen gives our skin support and structure and as it degrades with age, we begin to notice wrinkles and lines. Vitamin C is a necessary cofactor for building collagen bundles, without which this process halts.

Vitamin C is also helpful in lightening unwanted brown spots and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or decreasing brown discolouration by blocking the pathway of pigment.
