Why vitamin c?
Topical L-Ascorbic Acid, also known as Liquid Vitamin C, is a powerful antioxidant that can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and protect skin against the signs of premature photoaging caused by UV rays. Clinical research has shown that L-Ascorbic Acid is the only form of Vitamin C that can be utilized by the body.
What are free radicals and how do phyto-c’s formulas counteract them?
Free radicals are akin to dangerously charged electrons flying around the atmosphere and looking for healthy cells to latch onto and corrupt. When they latch onto healthy cells, they can damage those cells, creating more free radicals, and launching a chain reaction of damage. Free radicals can be created by the human body to fight viruses and bacteria, but they can also be created by environmental factors such as radiation, pollution, smoke. As we age, our body is more susceptible to the damage caused by free radicals.
L-Ascorbic Acid offers advanced environmental protection against free radicals caused by UV rays and other environmental factors. PHYTO-C’s formulas contain L-Ascorbic Acid, the only form of Vitamin C clinically proven to provide the most potent antioxidant benefits to the skin.
What are antioxidants and what do they do?
When skin is exposed to Ultraviolet (UV) light, measurements show that two-thirds of L-Ascorbic Acid in skin is destroyed. Scientists believe that L-Ascorbic Acid’s role as an antioxidant is essential in protecting skin from the damage caused by UV light exposure. In time, it is believed that these changes may result in premature signs aging and wrinkles and may escalate further if left unattended to.
Is sun exposure really dangerous and if so, what can I do about it?
Exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is a well-documented health hazard and excessive sun exposure is the most preventable cause of melanoma formulation. Malignant melanoma also has been linked to past sunburns and sun exposure at younger ages. Other possible causes of melanoma include genetic factors and immune system deficiencies. Protecting yourself against excessive UV radiation is important at any age. L-Ascorbic Acid is a moderately strong agent that reduces the effects of UV-radiation and shields against its damage.
Our atmosphere’s ozone layer protects humans from damage against UVC rays. If it were not for the ozone layer, and the human body’s multi-layered defense system, we could not survive in our oxygen-rich environment. But skin cancer and melanoma related to excessive UVR is on the increase, and protecting oneself against it cannot be underrated.
When skin is exposed to UV light, measurements show that two-thirds of L-Ascorbic Acid in skin is destroyed.
Scientists believe that L-Ascorbic Acid’s role as an antioxidant is essential in protecting skin from oxidative damage produced by UV light exposure and its associated inflammatory reaction. It is believed that this oxidative insult (the generation of free radicals) results in damage to other skin constituents including collagen, elastin, proteoglycan, as well as cell membranes and nuclear constituents. In time, it is believed that these changes may result in connective tissue breakdown (aging and wrinkles) and skin cancer.
Replacing L-Ascorbic Acid and maintaining healthy skin is key to minimizing the environmental damage caused by UV radiation, and even to natural signs of aging. PHYTO-C products are formulated to protect against the environmental damages caused by free radicals, the natural aging process, and other skin conditions. The protection afforded by L-Ascorbic Acid cannot be overstated. Dr. Omar, who discovered and invented topical L-Ascorbic Acid, has formulated all PHYTO-C products with the necessary ingredients to protect your skin and prevent further signs of aging.
