Vitamin C – the smallest vitamin with a big impact
The first thing that many people associate with vitamin C is its power to boost the immune system, especially during a cold. A sufficient intake of vitamin C is indeed essential for general health and individual well-being. But it is also a valuable beauty-boosting ingredient. Not only is it one of the most important antioxidants, but it also has the ability to positively influence and “regenerate” other antioxidants. As such, vitamin C is a widely used ingredient in skin and body care as it provides optimum support for the body’s own rejuvenating and revitalising processes.
