Vitamin C in natural cosmetics

Cosmetic ingredients -

Vitamin C helps the immune system, has anti-inflammatory effects and is one of the most powerful antioxidants that is why it is used in both cosmetics and natural cosmetics, especially in anti-aging cosmetics. It has the ability to inactivate free radicals and environmental pollutants that damage the healthy tissues of our skin. Want to know more about it? Keep reading this blog!

What are the benefits of Vitamin C in our skin?

Vitamin C fights skin aging caused by sun exposure, the so-called photo-aging because it neutralises the action of free radicals. This active ingredient also contributes to unify the tone of the skin and helps to eliminate spots on the face, as well as providing luminosity to the face in dull skins.

Vitamin C improves the appearance of wrinkles and provides firmness as it stimulates the synthesis of collagen in the skin.

Does Vitamin C irritate the skin? What is the ideal concentration?

This is often asked by many people and we have to say that within vitamin C there are many molecules and combinations that will not irritate your skin. However, you must bear in mind that if you apply it in the morning you must use photo protection or a cream with high SPF, and if you use it in your night routine you must do the same the next morning.

With regard to the quantity to be applied, it is very difficult to find products on the market that contain pure vitamin c because it is photosensitive and it oxidises in contact with light. Some formulas have between 15 and 20 percent but can be acidic and aggressive for some skins. Therefore, a concentration of 10 percent would be ideal because it offers an optimal balance of tolerability and effectiveness.

What products with vitamin c can you use?

If you wish to include vitamin c in your daily facial routine, you can do so by using a facial serum, moisturiser or facial cleanser.

At Mediterranean Spirit we use vitamin c in our anti-aging facial serum as one of the main ingredients and extract it from sweet orange peel (CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS PEEL OIL EXPRESSED) and mandarin / tangerine (CITRUS NOBILIS PEEL OIL). We also combine it with resveratrol and ferulic acid. It is very complete and you will look radiant!


On which skins can you use it?

Vitamin C can be applied to all skin types, even sensitive skin, and at any age because it prevents premature aging in young skin and fights photo-aging in mature skin.

You already know the secret to get a young, radiant and firm skin! You will not be able to live without including it in your daily facial care!
