The Super Powers of Vitamin C

by / Wednesday, 05 July 2017 / Published in Beauty, Lifestyle


 Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants known and that we have most at hand. We find it in oranges, strawberries, papayas, kiwis, mangos, raw peppers (red or green), broccoli, kale, parsley, artichoke and avocados, and is popularly linked to the prevention of colds.



Did you know that Vitamin C applied directly on the skin is 8-10 times more powerful that taken orally?

The bioavailability of active Vitamin C on the skin after an oral intake is very limited. It is not enough to drink a natural orange juice every morning. This is why its usefulness in cosmetics is of enormous interest. Among its properties and effects we can mention that applied directly on the skin it is a powerful natural antioxidant and depigmentator, thus improving the luminosity and texture, and it prevents skin ageing as it plays an important role in the formation of collagen.

The power of Vitamin C+ is perfected with the anti-glycation action.

Dull skin that lacks luminosity in the face is one of the main worries when we look at the mirror. This pallid, matt tone that many skins show, known as the “Kusumi Effect”, is a consequence of glycation.

Germaine de Capuccini combines the powerful anti-oxidising action of Vitamin C with the Ume Extract, capable of inhibiting the action of glycation.


Can it be used in summer?

Yes. It even is recommendable during this time of year, as it works against free radicals generated by the sun. Even so, the use of products with Vitamin C or its derivatives does not exclude from suitably protecting your skin.

Do you have an event?

A shock of Pure Vitamin C.

Use the PURE C ESSENCE FACIAL SERUM concentrate as a shock treatment a few days before the event, and/or for a flash effect the same day of the event use the FLASH C RADIANCE MULTI-CORRECTION FACIAL MASK.  In just 15 minutes your skin will be more luminous, firm, toned and radiant.

An essential in your express beauty bag.
