Uses: Vitamin C can be found in such cosmetic products as lotions, soaps, bath salts, creams, anti-aging creams, shampoos, conditioners, hair treatments, skin oils, cleansers and body washes. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and is used on the skin to neutralize free radical damage can occur because of UV radiation therefore preventing photo-damage. Vitamin C also decreases the amount of water loss on the skin, reduces inflammation, is able to promote the production of collagen, can thicken the dermis and can have a positive effect (at levels of 5%) on hyper-pigmentation of the skin although it is not very effective as a reducer of hyper-pigmentation. Vitamin C can also improve the skin's ability to repair itself and can be used to enhance certain dermatologist performed procedures which includes microdermabrasion and peels.
Vitamin C is often consumed through foods or taken in dietary supplements. It is a necessary structural component in bone, ligaments, blood vessels and tendons and is very important in the synthesis of norepinephrine which is a neurotransmitter. As an antioxidant Vitamin C is very effective. It protects, even in small amounts, certain indispensable molecules in the body. These include lipid (fats), nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), carbohydrates and proteins. It protects cells in the body from the damaging effects of reactive oxygen species and free radicals and this damage can occur through the exposure of the person to pollutants and toxins but can also occur through regular and normal metabolizing. Vitamin C has been shown in studies to have positive effects in certain diseases in some cases of coronary heart disease, cancer, cataracts, hypertension, the common cold and stroke.

Vitamin C powder
Natural Aloe Vera Gel or any face cream

Odor: No odor
Natural: Vitamin C is found in vegetables and fresh fruits, especially citrus fruits. Humans, unlike many animals, cannot manufacture their own vitamin C and so we must obtain it through our diet. It is possible to synthetically create vitamin C but there is no difference chemically between natural and synthetic L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C). There are also no known differences in the bioavailability and biological activities of either one.
