Vitamin C is in cosmetics and skin care products on the
market today. The percentage of vitamin C in skin care products
varies greatly, from as little as 5% to
as much as 20%. Read the product labels closely. You may be using a
skin care product boasting about the vitamin C content, when in fact it
barely has enough to do any good, if any at all. Some products contain
concentrated "stabilized" vitamin C which is supposed to be more
effective, but more costly too.
NOTE - Vitamin C can be unstable when it becomes oxidized. When this happens, it becomes ineffective and can cause skin damage. In its unstable form, it can cause free radical damage. A yellowish tint may indicate an advanced stage of oxidization. Check expiration dates on skin care products. Throw out outdated products. Buy products that are sealed tightly and properly stored. Store product in a dark, dry, cool location. Sunlight, heat, air and time can destabilize products with vitamin C.
CAUTION! Vitamin C may be irritating to some. If you experience rashes, redness, small bumps or any discomfort discontinue product use immediately. Contact your health care provider, if needed.
