Why Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is a wonder product for brightening your complexion and evening out your skin tone.
This ingredient is available in many forms, and there are many different products available on the market, including toners, serums and treatments.
The Different Forms of Vitamin C
One of the main forms of vitamin C is ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, and ascorbic acid in particular, is highly effective when formulated with additional ingredients.
Ascorbic acid is also known as L-ascorbic acid and is efficient in promoting youthful looking skin and protecting the surface of the skin from external damage, such as the sun.
It's magic works by rejuvenating the skin by promoting collagen production.
L-ascorbic acid is mainly found in concentrations of between 5 and 15%, normally with a low PH. For extra sensitive skin types, this form of vitamin C may be too strong.
Those with oily and combination skin types will suit using L-ascorbic acid, but those with very sensitive skin and rosacea should avoid it.
