C THE SUCCESS INTENSIVE TREATMENT MASK are based on an exceptionally high percentage of vitamin C, a powerful, natural anti-oxidant that neutralises free radicals. It is effective in rehabilitating collagen and elastin production as well as slowing down the premature skin-ageing, overall improving skin tone and texture. Each product contains additional active ingredients and complements the others for a natural and effective approach to a healthy, radiant skin.
There are many skin care products on the market today that boast vitamin C derivatives as an ingredient (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, ascorbyl palmitate, L-ascorbic acid). Vitamin C is the only antioxidant that is proven to stimulate the synthesis of collagen, which is essential since your body’s natural collagen production decreases as you age. Sun exposure will also accelerate the decrease in collagen. As you age, your body slows down its production of collagen and elastin that would keep the skin strong, flexible, and resilient. Antioxidants found in vitamin C may help to minimise fine lines, scars and wrinkles as well as strengthen skin’s barrier response, reduce inflammation, lessen hyperpigmentation and boost the efficacy of sunscreen actives.
Vitamin C has a variety of benefits for health and for maintaining healthy, youthful skin. It functions as an antioxidant, helping to offset oxidative damage that degrades collagen and leads to wrinkles and saggy skin. When skin is exposed to ultraviolet light from the sun, a sequence of events occurs that leads to free radical production. These free radicals damage skin cell membranes and activate enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, two most important proteins that keep the skin firm and youthful. Vitamin C has the ability to donate electrons to free radicals so they become less damaging to cellular structures. However, Vitamin C is not a substitute for sunscreen.
Active ingredients: L-ascorbic acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Sea Pine Bark and Chamomile extracts, Carrot oil and more. Lemon grass, rich in vitamin C, promotes skin lightening. Orange oil works to increase the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Grapefruit extract, rich in vitamin C, promotes skin renewal.
