Ascorbic acid is the purest form of vitamin C: it is one of the essential nutrients that our body needs and it can only be found in fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most unstable vitamins, meaning that it quickly loses its potency when it comes into contact with water. That’s the reason why, for our product La Vitamine C Powder, we have chosen to use vitamin C in its purest form; the powder form. One of the most important functions of vitamin C in our body is its responsibility for the formation of collagen. It forms the base of our connective tissue, and therefore also for beautiful skin. It is also a very strong antioxidant, protecting the skin against free radicals that are caused by stress and environmental aggressors, such as polluted air and UV light. These factors are responsible for the formation of premature wrinkles, and vitamin C helps to slow down the aging process. It is a true superfood for the skin, because not only does it protect the skin, but it also evens out the skin tone, strengthens the skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: a perfect blend that helps us maintain our beautiful and radiant skin. Our vitamin C is made from glucose derived from corn and wheat starch. It is made in England and you will find it in Comme Ça product La Vitamine C Powder.
