While many of the ingredients in Oilixia’s products need a little more explanation, you may already think you know everything there is to know about Vitamin C. In the nicest possible way, we’d like to prove you wrong 🙂 !
Beauty industry insiders have been lauding its benefits for years but it was not until recently that Vitamin C-based skincare saw a dazzling increase in popularity. The interest in Vitamin C has been piqued by its fantastic antioxidant properties, helping to protect skin against free radical damage that can be caused by the external environment (read: pollution and stress!). These free radicals can contribute to collagen breakdown resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
VITAMIN C AND YOUR SKIN
Vitamin C is less commonly known by the name L-Ascorbic acid, which is the most potent form of the vitamin in a skincare sense. While many of us rely on drinking orange juice and ingesting other drinks or food high in Vitamin C, it also has beauty benefits when applied topically to the skin.
When used on our skin, it works as a potent anti-ageing ingredient. The antioxidants in Vitamin C work to protect skin by fighting free radicals and harmful pollution, ideal if you live in a congested city like London! This helps to combat the signs of ageing including fine lines, wrinkles and saggy skin. Vitamin C is also known for its brightening properties, helping to fade dark spots of pigmentation and brighten the skin, to give you an enviable glow.
Our Gummy Facial Cleanser formula is founded on Kakadu Plum extract. This is one of the best natural sources of antioxidant vitamin C which makes it ideal for smoothing out skin for a brighter tone and texture. On a 100g basis, Kakadu Plum contains 3,700mg of Vitamin C, compared to Camu Camu at 2,700mg, Kiwi Fruit at 180mg and Orange at 53mg!
Some of the most common skincare issues are tired-looking skin, premature signs of ageing and a stressed-out complexion. Again, the Gummy Cleanser and its Vitamin C content is ideal to freshen up exhausted skin and give a healthy glow. It’s no wonder the cleanser is fast becoming a favourite with beauty experts! It’s the ideal product to nourish skin after a long day to leave you feeling clean and relaxed before bed.
