Benefits of Vitamin C for your skin

PELACTIV SKINCARE– where science meets nature

The Power Of Vitamin C

 

Today, Vitamin C used in skincare is still proving to be an outstanding performer in providing amazing results for a multitude of skin conditions. Australian skins are constantly punished by the harsh environmental conditions we are exposed to. Our skins are constantly fighting major free radical damage. Sun, undoubtedly the most damaging leaves our skin exposed to premature ageing, pigmentation, and thickened skin. Add to that smoking, poor diet, extreme weather conditions, air conditioning/heating – and you can have a total recipe for disaster for your precious skin. The Pelactiv Vitamin C+ skincare range has followed the tried and tested philosophy of combining science with nature to develop a performance product that rejuvenates, hydrates and heals the skin. By using a combination of L-Ascorbic Acid, Kakadu Plum and Lactic Acid we have created a range of results driven Vitamin C products that provide a visible difference to the skin. This combination of science with nature allows a better absorption into the skin making our delivery system unique. Our system has direct communication with your skin, speaking the skin’s language.

Why Choose Vitamin C

Clients wanted the results from this Vita C range without the reactions such as flakiness and redness. Therein lies the launch of the Pelactiv Vita C+ Professional Skincare Range. We wanted a complete system – the perfect range of Vitamin C+ products that deliver a complete facial regime with ongoing results. Environmental Factors Free radicals are found in our skin and when exposed to pollution or other environmental factors like smoke or sunlight they break down our collagen and elastin fibres. Collagen and elastin are essential proteins providing elasticity to the skin helping it to appear more youthful, firmer and healthier. Breakdowns of collagen and elastin cause the skin to age by showing signs of premature ageing such as wrinkles and loss of elasticity. The main performers in this Pelactiv range are: L-Ascorbic Acid, Kakadu Plum and Lactic Acid. Lactic Acid It was an obvious choice for Pelactiv to incorporate the use of Lactic Acid into its Vitamin C range. The benefits only enhance the ongoing use of these products. Lactic Acid is a form of AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) which provides so many functions. Exfoliating, hydrating, lightening, firming, fights the visible signs of premature ageing. Effective, yet not aggressive so can be used by most skin types. L-Ascorbic Acid Pelactiv haven chosen L-Ascorbic Acid as it is the only antioxidant that both neutralises free radicals and dramatically increases synthesis of collagen. L-Ascorbic Acid is the only Vitamin C that can easily penetrate the skins cells. Pelactiv use high concentrations (15%) of Vitamin C in their serums to ensure that it is topically effective. Alongside the active ingredient of L-Ascorbic Acid Pelactiv have added the benefits of our amazing Australian Native Botanicals for obvious reasons. Kakadu Plum The benefits of Kakadu Plum are used to enhance the performance of the Pelactiv Vita C+ skincare range. It is an antioxidant, stimulates collagen production and evens skin tone. Kakadu Plum contains a considerable amount of Vitamin C that plays an essential role in slowing down the ageing process.
