Description: A highly popular antioxidant, Vitamin C is known as a required component in the production of collagen, which is what provides skin its suppleness and elasticity. Vitamin C has also been shown to help reduce the appearance of age spots while providing some protection from external environmental stressors. It is widely used in skin care applications.
Usage: For a cosmetic cream as part of an anti-oxidant program, we would suggest adding from 2% – 5% in conjunction with other, more stable forms of Vitamin C such as herbal extracts. We also suggest adding in another antioxidant in the form of Vitamin E, Rosemary or Olive Leaf Extract. Keeping the formulation pH in the acid region also helps.
