See See “C” The Difference? The power of Vitamin c
Did you ever wonder, what are the real benefits of Vitamin C? You need Vitamin C for the growth and repair of tissues in ALL parts of your body. It helps the body make collagen, which is an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. The power of C is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.
So now that you know this important bit of information perhaps this explains why sun damaged skin is so receptive to the healing properties
Vitamin C brings to the table. Sun “damage ” needs repair and what helps repair ? Well, Vitamin C does. There you go. Fortunately at LAFACE we have a couple products that are positively brimming with this fabulous ingredient and the effectiveness is proven over and over again. Your complexion will thank you.
The unique Vitamin C that we use in formulating the LAFACE products is a particular Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. It is a very effective yet mild, stabilized, time released form of Vitamin C, making it the most effective and powerful Vitamin C compared to other forms such as Pure Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) and the other forms of Vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is highly unstable in water base products and easily gets oxidized and amber in color. The price of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is about 80 times than that of ascorbic acid. For example, Dr. Perricone used to aggressively promote his vitamin C ester-ascorbyl palmitate products with pending patents. Now he has switched to Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, but even his is not as effective as the one we use.
Function and Benefits of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate include:
Anti – Aging:
- Cell activation
- Increases collagen production
- Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
- Helps photo-aging
- Improves uneven skin tone
Anti – Oxidation:
- Prevention of DNA damage
