For years vitamins have been recognized as extremely valuable ingredients in all kinds of cosmetics. Vitamins offer various benefits to the skin as suppression of pigmentation & bruising, stimulation of collagen synthesis, refinement of the skin surface, and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. The
antioxidant effect is particularly appreciated since free radicals generated by UV light or pollutants are effectively neutralized and no longer able to damage skin cells.
Vitamins can thus significantly improve the performance of cosmetics. The most widely used vitamins in cosmetics are vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and provitamin B5.
