Dr. Sante Vitamin C: Antioxidant Skincare for All Skin Types

Dr. Sante Vitamin C: Antioxidant Skincare for All Skin Types In the modern world, every day is like a race: there is so much to do and so little time! Due to this, we are living under constant stress, which may reflect on our skin, making it look dull and tired. Dr. Sante has created a new skincare collection titled Vitamin C, which is specifically designed to protect your skin from everyday stress. It consists of several products formulated with highly concentrated, 100% stabilised vitamin C.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a real elixir of youth, which is widely used in skincare products due to its powerful antioxidant properties. This vitamin neutralises the harmful effects of free radicals – unstable and highly reactive atoms and molecules that are one of the main causes of premature skin ageing. However, it is not only the anti-age effect of vitamin C that deserves your attention.

Another great thing about ascorbic acid is that it regulates and stimulates the production of collagen, a protein responsible for your skin’s firmness and elasticity. In addition, it helps to keep the skin hydrated by creating an invisible protective barrier that locks in moisture. Vitamin C also stimulates skin regeneration and renewal, as well as lightens complexion and evens out skin tone by blocking the synthesis of tyrosinase and thus reducing the production of melanin.

It should also be noted that ascorbic acid has pronounced strengthening properties – it strengthens the walls of small blood vessels in the skin and prevents their brittleness, protecting them from damage. As a result, skincare products with vitamin C help to prevent skin redness and rosacea.

The above-listed benefits of vitamin C allow to use it in various kinds of skincare products. However, this ingredient isn’t without its drawbacks. Vitamin C in its native form is very unstable and quick to oxidise, so it needs the so-called stabilisation. To stabilise vitamin C, it is combined with various compounds that slow down the oxidation process and allow vitamin C to reveal all its benefits.

There are various compounds that can react with ascorbic acid and stabilise it. For example, the reaction between ascorbic acid and a fatty acid (palmitic or isopalmityc) is used to obtain ascorbyl palmitate or tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate. These compounds are slow to oxidise on contact with air and are both water- and fat-soluble, which allows to use them in different kinds of skincare products.

Ascorbic acid can also be combined with sodium or magnesium to obtain stable forms of vitamin C – sodium ascorbyl phosphate or magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, respectively. Finally, ascorbic acid can be combined with glucose to obtain ascorbyl glucoside, another stable form of vitamin C, which preserves its properties at different pH levels and has a particularly gentle effect on the skin.

All products from Dr. Sante’s Vitamin C collection are formulated with ascorbyl glucoside. It is a 100% stabilised form of vitamin C which is converted to ascorbic acid when applied to the skin and exhibits its beneficial properties for a long time. Dr. Sante Vitamin C products also contain a special enzyme catalyst that helps to transport vitamin C and other active ingredients to the deeper layers of the skin, boosting their efficiency.

What exactly are these other active ingredients? Vitamin C products by Dr. Sante contain VitaHerbs complex (a combination of “female” vitamins A, B1, B3 (PP), B7 (H), E and F) to keep the skin healthy and youthful-looking, a combination of omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids, hyaluronic spheres, SymWhite (a complex of plant-based biologically active substances) and Wrinkle Filler (an active polymer system). All these active ingredients help to nourish, moisturise and revitalise dull and tired skin, restore healthy complexion and glow, and boost the skin’s natural elasticity and firmness. In addition, they eliminate the signs of fatigue and reduce the visibility of the early signs of ageing, making your skin look refreshed and well-rested at all times.

The specialists of the Ukrainian-Polish group of companies Elfa have developed Dr. Sante Vitamin C for women aged 25-45. The collection includes day and night face creams, an express face serum, and a vitamin cocktail for the skin around the eyes. All these products are based on natural ingredients and contain no parabens or dyes. Besides, they are really affordable, so you can buy them even if you’re on a tight budget.
