When you think of Vitamin C, an image of fresh citrus often comes to mind. In the context of skincare, Vitamin C is so much more.
WHAT IS VITAMIN C AND WHY DO WE NEED IT?
It’s a water-soluble vitamin that supports immunity and overall health. Insufficient Vitamin C can lead to weakness, anemia and skin problems. Unlike most animals, humans cannot synthesize Vitamin C themselves, so they must ingest or apply it.
In addition, vitamin C is an antioxidant, which means that it helps protect the body from damaging free radicals. Vitamin C is required for the biosynthesis of collagen and is involved in protein metabolism.
WHAT FORMS DOES MD COMPLETE USE?
MD Complete uses a more advanced and bioavailable form of Vitamin C (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, TA-C). It’s a more stable, more potent and more expensive variant of Vitamin C for better penetration, better brightening and better results.
Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is a lipid-based form of Vitamin C and is readily absorbed deep into the skin, where it helps stimulate collagen production. It absorbs far better than traditional Ascorbic Acid.
HOW DOES VITAMIN C WORK IN THE SKIN?
In addition to its antioxidant properties, Vitamin C refines skin texture to brighten and even skin tone, while smoothing the appearance of fine lines. It's an excellent booster for any routine.
WHY PAIR VITAMINS C + E?
Vitamin E works synergistically with Vitamin C to improve its performance, while helping to repair and renew a stronger skin surface for a beautiful complexion. Whenever you use Vitamin C, you should also use Vitamin E.
