Vitamin C is not unknown to us in everyday life: In order to prevent illnesses and infections, we eat foods that contain many vitamins and minerals - including vitamin C. Like a natural protective shield, it protects our body from harmful influences. Nowadays, vitamin C is also often found in skin care: Known as a true anti-aging miracle weapon, vitamin C is one of the most effective means of protecting and caring for the skin:
- Protection against environmental influences (such as cigarette smoke or UV light) through antioxidant effects
- Smoothing effect by increasing collagen formation and supporting the skin's collagen structure
- Reduction and weakening of pigment spots for a more even complexion by reducing excessive melanin production
What effects does vitamin C have on the skin?
Unfortunately, the body cannot produce vitamin C itself. That's why external support is needed (e.g. through vitamin C skin care products like our reveel Vitamin C Concentrate ) to achieve powerful effects.
Vitamin C strengthens the skin's antioxidant system
Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants in human skin. Young and healthy skin contains a high concentration of vitamin C, while the concentration in damaged or aged skin decreases and is therefore lower. Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals and thus prevents damage to skin cells. Restoring vitamin C in damaged or aged skin strengthens the skin's antioxidant system.
Vitamin C inhibits melanin synthesis
Vitamin C inhibits the activity of the enzyme tyrosinase, which is involved in melanin synthesis (formation of dark spots). The skin reacts by lightening pigmentation and the complexion becomes visibly more even.
Vitamin C increases the skin's own collagen synthesis
Oxidative stress caused by free radicals directly affects the existing collagen structures and inhibits the production of the protein. Vitamin C protects against collagen breakdown by neutralizing free radicals and at the same time supports various enzymes to increase collagen synthesis. This visibly tightens the skin contours and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.
Not all vitamin C is the same!
The original and most effective form of vitamin C is L-ascorbic acid. The antioxidant is very reactive and can bind free radicals so that they cannot attack and even damage structures in the human body. It combats oxidative stress and thus prevents premature skin aging and infections. It is also able to balance enzymes involved in collagen and melanin synthesis. This increases collagen synthesis and inhibits the activity of the enzyme tyrosinase. Vitamin C has an extremely effective protective effect in skin care.
Due to its high reactivity, pure L-ascorbic acid is a very sensitive active ingredient that can oxidize quickly in combination with oxygen, for example. If skin care products containing L-ascorbic acid in the form of serums or creams are stored in containers that are opened each time they are used, oxygen reaches the active ingredient. This reacts and breaks down before it can penetrate the skin. For this reason, many formulations of vitamin C skin care products use a derivative which, although it does not break down when exposed to oxygen, is fundamentally less effective and effective. Products in which the vitamin C is only “freshly activated” immediately before use are most effective.
Thanks to our unique technology - the Advanced CryoSafe® Method - we are able to safely store the original and most effective form of vitamin C, L-ascorbic acid, until use, so that it only has its full effect with fresh activation immediately before Application unfolded. Therefore, stabilization, packaging and the way in which the active ingredient is stored are particularly important. Our reveel Vitamin C Concentrate combines the most effective form of vitamin C and the unique activator technology - for maximum protection of your skin from harmful influencing factors and a young-looking, firm complexion with an even complexion!
Tips for using Vitamin C Concentrate:
- Apply Vitamin C Concentrate in the morning after cleansing your face.
- To do this, place a bead on the palm of your hand - one pump of the activator dissolves the bead and can be mixed with your hands and applied to your face.
- This allows vitamin C to develop its full effectiveness and protect against environmental influences throughout the day.
- Apply moisturizer after using Vitamin C Concentrate.
- Finally, use a high level of sunscreen to protect you from UV rays (the combination of vitamin C + sunscreen is optimal).
