how it works
Antioxidants are very valuable weapons in the fight against aging. They effectively disarm environmental pollutants such as smog, smoke, and even light pollution, that could be harmful. Free radicals are unstable molecules that contain unpaired electrons. In this highly reactive state, they search their environment, looking to scavenge replacement electrons. This creates a domino effect, as free radicals steal electrons from healthy cells, creating more free radicals. When cells come in contact with damaged oxygen molecules, collagen begins to break down, and wrinkles and lines are formed. Antioxidants act as the first line of defense by neutralizing free radicals.
There are many forms of vitamin C, each with its own pros and cons. Some forms are notoriously unstable, causing them to rapidly lose their potency. Others can even cause sensitization and redness. Ascorbyl glucoside, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate are well-known to be exceedingly stable, gentle, and effective, embodying all of the antioxidant and brightening benefits of vitamin C.
