Vitamin C- your best ally in fight against aging - Over time the skin loses its flexibility and its radiance. These phenomena can be due to external factors (sun exposure, pollution, smoking, etc.) and internal factors (age, etc.). These factors favour the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles which give a dull and aged aspect to the skin. Furthermore, the concentration of vitamin C in the skin falls with age and exposure to UV rays, which has the effect of reducing the synthesis of collagen. Collagen is a protein which confers a resistance to stretching on the tissues. To deal with this fall, the vitamin C concentration in the skin must be increased in order to maintain an optimal collagen level and to keep the skin young, soft and radiant.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant drug that can be used topically in dermatology to treat and prevent changes associated with photo ageing. It can also be used for the treatment of hyper pigmentation.
Action - L-ascorbic acid (LAA) is the chemically active form of Vit. C. The absorption of Vit. C in the gut is limited by an active transport mechanism and hence a finite amount of the drug is absorbed despite high oral dosage. Furthermore, bioavailability of Vit. C in the skin is inadequate when it is administered orally. The use of topical ascorbic acid is therefore favored in the practice of dermatology.
- Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) 15% - Flavo-C forte contains 15% L-ascorbic acid (the highest concentration of stabilised vitamin C) for optimal repairing. Thanks to its unique penetration system, Flavo-C forte acts effectively, rapidly and lastingly on restoring the relief of the skin. It is the ideal treatment for the areas of the face where the damage caused by time seem irreparable (frown lines, crow’s feet, lip contours, etc.). It can be used as a direct treatment or in complement to Flavo-C serum (8 % LAA) in order to boost its action.
Apply a few drops of Flavo-C forte to the tips of the fingers, and then spread over the areas to be treated (face, eye contours, neckline), morning and evening, paying particular attention to the areas most affected by time (lip contours, crow’s feet, frown lines).
In the event of use of Flavo-C forte as “booster” for Flavo-C serum, two to three applications per week will be sufficient.
Avoid contact with the eyes.
Flavo C Forte-15% L-ascorbic acid serum is designed for all skin types.
