Vitamin C & skincare

The antioxidant properties of vitamin C and its role in collagen synthesis make vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health. Dietary and topical ascorbic acid have beneficial effects on skin cells, and some studies have shown that vitamin C may help prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV)-induced photodamage

Most animals can produce their own vitamin C, but humans have lost this ability. The human body does not produce vitamin C in the liver. There is an increased demand for vitamin C supplements as we cannot always effectively ensure a regular vitamin C intake.

Vitamin C comes in three forms; levorotatory, dextrorotatory and racemic. Levorotatory vitamin C has the highest bioavailability - absorption in the human body - and is the most beneficial. The L- vitamin C is the only one that is affective. The dextrorotatory form, the common one, is nearly useless
