Although humans are unable to synthesize vitamin C like most animals and plants, it is the most abundant antioxidant in human skin. Topical use of Vitamin C has been shown to increase collagen production in both young and aged human skin in clinical studies.
Not all preparations of Vitamin C are physiologically effective. Most do not penetrate into the dermis sufficiently, and most do not convert to the biologically active form of Vitamin C in skin. THD Vitamin C provides increased skin penetration over L-ascorbic acid.
Vitamin C works best in conjunction with Vitamin E to neutralize free radicals. In clinical studies Vitamin E is shown to increase protective properties by 400%.
• 10% Vitamin C increases collagen production. THD Vitamin C enhances penetration into the dermis.
• Vitamin E shown in clinical studies to increase protective properties of Vitamin C by 400%.
• Niacinamide helps older skin cells produce more collagen, enhances elasticity, and strengthens moisture barrier.
• Botanical Extracts made fresh in-house are hand selected to boost collagen creation.
