Vitamins C and E are antioxidants. They boost the immune system so it can fight off bacteria and viruses. Combined, they can improve the tone and texture of your skin.
Vitamin C – Stabilized “C”
(Vitagen – PHOSPHATE FORM)
Ascorbic acid is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage and plays a vital role in skin repair and regeneration. Most importantly it is key to the Healthy Body’s production of collagen, which keeps skin firm and toned, and slowing down the signs of aging.
Normally, Vitamin C in a topical solution rapidly degrades when exposed to oxygen. However, Riversol MD uses Vitamin C in a phosphate form which provides stability and sustained effectiveness of its antioxidant properties.
Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant, fat soluble vitamin that maintains the skin’s cell integrity and prevents cell damage.
As an anti-oxidant, Vitamin E is becoming more important not only as an additive in skin care, but as an oral supplement to prevent skin damage. Able to prevent free radical damage to skin, Vitamin E is commonly used to reduce and prevent scarring and stretch marks.
Vitamin E helps the skin to remain healthy by maintaining cell integrity and preventing cell damage.
Research tells us that Vitamin E can only suppress a limited number of free radicals before it runs out of electrons to donate, therefore, it is often combined with Vitamin C to allow for sustained and long lasting antioxidant protection.
Combined, Vitamin C and Vitamin E help repair the skin from damage and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Combined they also help improve the tone and texture of the skin, making them a winning combination for anti-aging* (only when formulated in their “purest” form).
