Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which the body cannot produce itself and which must therefore be ingested through food. It is found mainly in citrus fruits and fresh vegetables.
The antioxidant properties of vitamin C are particularly appreciated. On the one hand, ascorbic acid protects cosmetic products from spoilage by contact with oxygen (oxidative spoilage). On the other hand, vitamin C reduces oxidative stress on the skin.
