Ascorbic Acid


Did you know… humans, guinea pigs, fruit bats and primates are the only mammals that cannot make Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) in their bodies?

What's the deal with Ascorbic Acid?

Ascorbic Acid is also known as Vitamin C. Ascorbic Acid is a multitasking super antioxidant. It is perfect for use day or night and is widely included in skincare products. It can be boosted even further when it’s combined with other antioxidants and vitamins. Ascorbic Acid aids the formation of collagen, absorption of iron and helps with the maintenance of cartilage, bones and teeth. Citrus fruits are an important source of Ascorbic Acid, but it is also present in strawberries, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kiwi fruits and more.
