Curate Apothecary Vitamin C Range is an extremely potent rejuvenation duo that specifically targets conditions brought on through the changing phases of the menopause.
The combination of plant-derived fatty acids, essential oils and botanical hyaluronic acid provide a rich nourishing feel to both formulations without any feeling of droopy heaviness. Serum and Cream are both rapidly absorbed and light to the touch.
Typical results are calmed and less reddened skin. Fine lines are plumped and irritation reduced. Long-term routine use results in generally brighter skin, a revitalised appearance and refined skin texture that is less prone to flare-ups with reduced age-related concerns.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient that is found in some fruits and vegetables which supports the production of collagen in the body. It provides free radical (antioxidant) protection and defense against photo-ageing with its symptoms such as hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
The body needs vitamin C to create collagen but the body is unable to produce Vitamin C by itself - this is why Vitamin C intake is important.
Collagen is the body’s primary repair protein and the building block for our tissue. As collagen production decreases with age, the effects of sagging, dull and wrinkled skin appear.
Good Vitamin C skincare may reduce and reverse the signs of ageing.
Since with the inset of menopause hormones also play a role in both levels and rates of collagen production decreasing, as well as the quality of collagen itself, the application with high-grade bio-available Vitamin C in the skincare routine may help provide invaluable regenerative support together with boosting antioxidant defense from destructive free radicals.
BOTANICAL HYALURONIC ACID
'Despite it's rather harsh sounding name, Botanical Hyaluronic acid is actually a sugar molecule that is produced naturally in our bodies and crucially optmises hydration levels in vital organs such as the eye and skin. It's hydrating power lies in it's incredible ability of attracting and holding up to 1000 its volume in moisture
NOT ALL HYALURONIC ACID IS THE SAME
Natural hyaluronic acid used in skincare has traditionally been sourced from horses and rooster combs, which has serious ethical implications and as with man-made synthetic versions, needs to be injected into skin to provide results as the molecule is too large to pass through the dermis naturally.
As an ethical vegan brand we only use botanical plant-derived hyaluronic acid which research has shown is more effective, due to its high polysaccharide content, at delivering lasting suppleness and relieving dryness without requiring the use of needles and most importantly- it is cruelty-free.
