"C-Max is a great product because it keeps my skin young and healthy, even though my skin is naturally very dry. I use it every day and recommend it to friends. " - Hugo
Vitamin C is the most abundant anti-oxidant found naturally in the skin and is a critical component for simulating the production of collagen, which is an essential protein necessary for strong, healthy skin. The collagen protein is a kind of biological mortar located in the skins second layer that forms the foundation for the underlying skin and keeps it firmer and appearing younger. Collagen production decreases with age, and when the level of collagen drops low enough, the underlying structure of the skin weakens, becomes less firm, and allows skin sagging and wrinkling to develop. It is difficult to get a high enough volume of vitamin C in the skin to start the production of the collagen protein through diet alone.
Experts say that no research has shown that taking oral vitamin C supplements affects the aging process of the skin in any way. For the maximum amount of skin repair and protection, many studies have shown that vitamin C needs to be topically applied and absorbed into the skin. Vitamin C cream can reverse the signs of photo-aging, (one of the processes that cause a decrease in the production of collagen) causing skin to wrinkle. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, meaning that it is not stored in the body. The body will naturally eliminate any amount of vitamin C that it doesnt use.
C-Max Skin Repair Formula contains 6.5% of L-Ascorbic Acid, the only form of Vitamin C that the skin can use to create collagen.
