The skin care industry makes a lot of assertions about taking years off your skin and their product’s anti-aging properties. When in fact a lot of the marketing buzz is not backed up with scientific research. It is hypothesized that the aging process occurs on the mitochondrial level, and inflammation is proposed to accelerate this process. Here at Blitzby, we do not attempt to take years off of your skin, we believe you should love the skin you’re in. Our mission is simple -- to make your skin look amazing at every step of your life. Bltizby’s proven formula includes the Ascorbic Acid form of Vitamin C, and coupled with Hyaluronic Acid to create a product you will truly love. So what exactly are these ingredients and what makes this combination so exemplary? We will explore each of these in this article!
Vitamin C = Ascorbic Acid
There are many forms of Vitamin C and while some are naturally occurring, others can be synthetically produced. The latin derived scientific name for Vitamin C is Ascorbic Acid (hydrogen ascorbate) and the primary forms of Vitamin C are L-ascorbic acid and D-ascorbic acid. If you break down the word Ascorbic, A - means no, and Scorbutus - latin for Scurvy, which was a common disease from a lack of Vitamin C. The body leverages vitamin c to build skin, tendons, and blood vessels, as well as contributing to the growth and repair of tissues.
The L form of Vitamin C can be found naturally in fruits and vegetables while most supplements contain the synthetic form. According to a 1993 paper about the bioavailability of natural versus synthetic ascorbic acid, there was found to be a similar utilization by the body. It is widely accepted that sun damage, pollution exposure, and oxygen can contribute the the skins aging process. Vitamin C is an antioxidant which can inhibit your skin from oxidizing on the molecular level. The D form has exactly the same antioxidants but none of the vitamin c, so it is rarely used.
The molecular form of Hyaluronic Acid is glycosaminoglycan which is partly comprised of naturally occurring sugars. The beneficial hydrating properties of hyaluronic extend from it’s immense ability to retain moisture. The natural aging process diminishes the skin’s ability to retain moisture, and skin care products supplement this moisture retention. Sodium Hyaluronate is commonly found in serums and other topical skin care products, due to the minuscule molecular weight and size the sodium hyaluronate is more easily absorbed in the skin.
