Why is it important to protect the skin?

The skin is constantly exposed to various environmental factors, with ultraviolet (UV) radiation and pollution being two of the main triggers of skin problems. These elements cause reactions in the skin that lead to oxidative stress, a process harmful to cellular health, and premature ageing. Antioxidants play a crucial role in neutralizing oxidative stress.



What is oxidative stress and skin aging?

Protecting the skin from oxidative stress and skin aging

Antioxidants are essential to protect against the effects of oxidative stress. Their ability to fight free radicals helps maintain cellular integrity and stimulates processes vital to maintaining healthy skin. Antioxidants have the benefit of stimulating the production of collagen, the structural protein that provides firmness and elasticity to the skin. This ability is particularly notable of vitamin C, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles while strengthening the structure of our skin. The protective action of antioxidants also reduces cell damage and the risk of DNA damage. This cellular defense keeps skin healthy and prevents premature ageing. The capacity of antioxidants to fight inflammation is equally crucial in a variety of skin conditions. These actives soothe inflammation and promote healthy, irritation-free skin.




Vitamin C is one of the most powerful and effective antioxidants available for skin care. Its ability to neutralise free radicals and protect against cell damage makes it a key ingredient in our skin care. Vitamin C is available in several active forms, L-ASCOBIC ACID is biologically the most potent, best studied, highly effective as an antioxidant and stimulator of collagen production. In addition, L-ASCOBIC ACID is able to penetrate deep into the skin, where it can neutralize free radicals and protect cells from oxidative damage. To penetrate the skin and pass through the stratum corneum, formulations must have a P.H under 4.1 and a concentration between 10% and 20%.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant whose function is to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin E is available in several active forms with ALPHA-TOCOPHEROL being the most common and biologically active form of vitamin E in the body. It can be beneficial to the skin in several ways. Vitamin E can help keep the skin hydrated by improving the skin barrier and reducing transepidermal water loss. In addition, it has been shown that vitamin E is not a sunscreen, but it can help boost the effects of sunscreens and protect the skin against damage caused by ultraviolet radiation.
