Strolling through our gardens this holiday, we find our landscapes naturally adorned with a backdrop of satsumas, grapefruits and lemons. And as we gather our backyard bounty, we are inspired to share with you the importance of Vitamin C for healthy, peaches and cream complexions.
Vitamins are crucial to our health and when it comes to our skin, Vitamin C plays a vital role. Acting as a cofactor (or essential substance), Vitamin C combines with the hydroxylase enzyme to create new collagen, using one molecule of Vitamin C for every new molecule of collagen. On top of that, Vitamin C is an antioxidant and naturally protects your tissues from damage.
The short story: a healthy dose of Vitamin C is essential for maintaining a glowing complexion. But while you can supplement your diet with bell peppers, citrus, strawberries and more, the vitamin itself is water soluble, so you can’t store it for those moments when your skin needs it most.
At Sapelo, we found a way to give you the essentials, exactly when your skin needs it. By adding ascorbyl palmitate to our Rejuvenating Cream, a natural, organic form of Vitamin C that is stable, the cream is the perfect product to produce the most abundant collagens, collagen I and collagen III. Apply it twice daily, and your skin will thank you by looking more refreshed and replenished than ever.
It is this type of scientific formulation which is engineered into Sapelo Skin Care products, helping you put your best face forward.
With love from our backyard to yours,
Stephanie & Cindy
