Vitamin C, better known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin and a powerful antioxidant. Used a lot in cosmetics for its properties, it’s introduced into the body through food, but not in sufficient quantity. Hence, a Vitamin C-based line is a precious ally to keep the skin hydrated and young, like the one proposed by Pixi.

Vitamin C and Skin
The cosmetic products in which this vitamin is used most are without a doubt creams and serums. They very often have an antioxidant, antiage, elasticizing, protective and lightening function for the skin.
The action of this vitamin in cosmetics protects the skin from free radicals caused by the sun and pollution, prevents the formation of crow’s feet and deep wrinkles, counteracts the loss of skin tone, lightens brown spots and brightens the skin.
Among other things, it should be noted that Vitamin C is involved in the regeneration of other oxidants, such as Vitamin E, and acts as a cofactor in various enzymatic reactions, preserving the existing one.
