VITAMIN C – a multi-purpose ingredient for the skin

What do you think of when you hear the word vitamin C? Most people associate vitamin C with medications for flu and citruses, as it protects cells from oxidative stress and plays an important role in collagen production. Vitamin C is not usable only for consuming, the versatile vitamin has also become increasingly popular in the cosmetics industry in recent years. It is used for many skin problems – it has lightening functions for hyperpigmentation, protects the skin from reddness and UVB light, has a beneficial effect on acne, an anti-inflammatory effect and promotes collagen synthesis.

Examples of studies where participants used vitamin C

Vitamin C is a multi-functional ingredient that helps with various skin problems.

Example 1 (10% of vitamin C used).

B) Visible improvement in texture and wrinkles is visible after 90 days of topical application of vitamin C.

B) Reduces skin irritation on the face, the skin is nourished and moisturized, there is no dry area on the cheeks and chin, reduced pigmentation around the lips, chin and forehead.

Formulating with vitamin C

Formulating with vitamin C is quite challenging for homemade cosmetics as vitamin C is sensitive to light and air, and is inherently unstable. If formulated incorrectly it will turn brown and formulation spoilage will occur very quickly. Besides, there aremany different forms of vitamin C, from which we can choose and they have different effect on the skin. Cosmetic products that contain vitamin C must be protected from light and heat. Therefore, we use tinted glass packaging that does not transmit light, pump packaging, capsules,… Do not use containers with open lids and transparent packaging.

VITAMIN C – multifunkcionalna sestavina za kožo

Na kaj pomisliš, ko slišiš besedo vitamin C? Večina vitamin C poveže z zdravim citrusi, prebolevanjem gripe, ipd. Vsestranski vitamin pa se ne uporablja le za konzumiranje, saj je zadnja leta vedno bolj priljubljen tudi v kozmetični industriji. Pomaga pri številnih težavah s kožo – ima osvetlitveni učinek na hiperpigmentacije, kožo varuje pred rdečino in UVB svetlobo, ima ugoden učinek na akne, deluje protivnetno ter spodbuja sintezo kolagena.

Vitamin C je res multifunkcionalna sestavina, ki pomaga pri številnih težavah s kožo, kar dokazujejo tudi številne raziskave. Poglej si primere študij, kjer so udeleženci testirali učinek vitamina C.

Primer 1  (uporabljena 10 % vitamin C).

A) Znatne fotopoškodbe obraza z nepravilno teksturo in globokimi gubami pred terapijo.

B) Vidno izboljšanje teksture in gub je vidno po 90 dneh lokalne uporabe vitamina C.

Primer 2 (uporabljeni kozmetični izdelki z vitaminom C)

Slika 1 Koža obraza je razdražena, dehidrirana (na predelih lic in brade), vidne so pigmentne lise na čelu, bradi in okoli ust, barva kože je spremenjena.
Slika 2 Zmanjšano draženje kože na obrazu, koža je nahranjena in navlažena, ni suhega predela na licih in bradi, zmanjšane pigmentacije okoli ustnic, brade in čela.

Formuliranje z vitaminom C

Formuliranje z vitaminom C je za izdelovalce domače kozmetike precej zahtevno, saj je vitamin C občutljiv na svetlobo in zrak ter je sam po sebi nestabilen. Če formuliramo napačno, izdelek postane rjav in se zelo hitro pokvari. Poleg tega obstajaja več oblik vitamina C z različnim učinkom. Kozmetični izdelki, ki vsebujejo vitamin C, morajo biti zaščiteni pred svetlobo in toploto. Zato uporabljamo zatemnjeno stekleno embalažo, ki ne prepušča svetlobe, embalažo s pumpico, kapsule,… Ne uporabljajte posodic s pokrovčki in ​​prozorno embalažo.
