Let us have a look at the main vitamin ingredients which we use in our herbal organic products in order to enhance natural beauty of skin. These vitamins have been derived from plants or herbs. It is useful to learn the benefits our skin derives from them:
Vitamin A (Beta Carotene). Helps maintain smooth, soft disease-free skin; helps protect the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, throat lungs, which helps reduce our susceptibility to infections; protects against air pollutants and contaminants; helps improve eye sight and counteracts night-blindness; aids in bone and teeth formation; improves skin elasticity, moisture content and suppleness; and helps reverse the signs of photo-aging. A lack of vitamin A can cause skin to become dry and hardened.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) Vitamin C is essential for healthy teeth, gums bones; helps heal wounds, scar tissue, fractures; prevents scurvy; builds resistance to infection; aids in the prevention treatment of the common cold; gives strength to blood vessels; aids in the absorption of iron. It is required for the synthesis of collagen, the inter-cellular cement which holds tissues together, and is also one of the major antioxidant nutrients. It prevents the conversion of nitrates (from tobacco smoke, smog, bacon, lunchmeats, some vegetables) into cancer-causing substances. Moreover, Vitamin C has been shown to help slow the production of hyper-pigmentation (age spots) while providing some UV protection.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol Acetate). The Vitamin E family is well known for its antioxidant capabilities, protecting vital cell structures by neutralizing molecules called “free radicals”. Free radicals are unstable molecules produced from sources like air pollution, radiation, and peroxides.
Wheat Germ Oil (Triticum vulgare). A natural preservative, very high in Vitamin E and also containing Vitamin A and D. It supports the skins natural process of regeneration; aids muscle and lymph function and is particularly valuable for treating dry, aging skin. Good for stretch marks and scar tissue, and for dry rough skin. It leaves the skin very smooth while nourishing and helping heal the skin. It is also rich source of Vitamin E, A, D, proteins, Lecithin, and Squalene, and useful for numerous irritations including roughness of the skin, cracking, chaffing; also effective to help reverse the wrinkling process.
