Undernourished, dull skin can often be traced to a deficiency in essential vitamins. ‘Vita’ means life and when we introduce Vitamin-infused serums into the skin, there is an overall improvement in skin health leading to a more youthful, natural appearance.
Of all the different types of vital nutrients/vitamins necessary for life and health, these 3 are the most indispensable and effective ones in anti-aging skin care:
Any effective anti-aging product definitely contains Vitamin C or L-ascorbic acid. The Vitamin C in our organic serums is naturally sourced from carrots and citrus fruits like lemon and oranges. By helping to fight hyperpigmentation, Vitamin C gives the skin a more even appearance by inhibiting an enzyme called tyrosinase, which is responsible for melanin (or pigment) synthesis. Regular application will help decrease discoloration due to sun exposure, melasma, post-acne dark spots, etc.
Most importantly, Vitamin C’s high antioxidant levels defends skin from free radical damage and environmental stressors and helps restore firmness and elasticity. Vitamin C, in fact, dramatically slows a process called ‘glycation’, which has the net effect of stiffening collagen-elastin matrix, causing it to become brittle and non-elastic. This makes Vitamin C a great anti-aging ingredient, effectively softening and filling fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet, especially around the age betraying eye area, neck and decolletage.
Since Vitamin C is easily oxidized, look for a formula that is shelf stable and packaged well in dark or opaque bottles. The product should be protected from direct sunlight or oxygen as Vitamin C is easily broken down, making it less effective.
Retinol (a synthetic form of Vitamin A) is probably the most successful anti-aging ingredient. While synthetic Retinol can and does cause sensitivity and irritation in many people, the natural forms of Vitamin A, obtained as Beta Carotene from clean organic plant sources increase cellular turnover, promote collagen formation as well as improve firmness, tone and elasticity of the skin, all without side effects. With regular application, Vitamin A helps diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, pigmentation and other signs of aging.
Our BioScience Peptide Complex is the best organic serum you can find, with it’s precise combination of the three most important skin vitamins – Vitamin A, E and C. This unique formula with naturally derived peptides and more than 50+ wild-gathered botanicals boosts collagen and hyaluronic acid levels to help reduce the signs of aging skin. Within 60 days of regular usage, fine lines and deep expression lines softened with an improvement in skin’s texture, clarity and brightness.
Also known as alpha-tocopherol, Vitamin E is the ultimate combination of hydration and antioxidant boost. Naturally found in oils of sunflower, avocado, olive, almonds, etc., Vitamin E is best known for healing and moisturizing dry skin and reducing the appearance of scars. Vitamin E effectively reduces wrinkles and helps calm inflammation such as rosacea, eczema and other skin sensitivities.
Did you know that the benefits of Vitamin E increase 2X times when used along with Vitamin C? Vitamin E & C work together in our SunProtect SPF 30+ mineral sunscreen to help protect skin from sun damage. With micronized but never nano-particulated Zinc Oxide as the key active ingredient, our SunProtect SPF30+ is free of chemicals and harmful toxins.
