VITAMIN C THE HOLY GRAIL OF SKIN CARE

C Duo Styled

Vitamin C (considered by many to be the holy grail of skin care) is fundamental to the skin’s underlying structure and with advancing age, the skin progressively loses Vitamin C resulting in fine lines, age spots and wrinkles. Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant, it boosts collagen synthesis, decreases photo damage and is anti-inflammatory, protecting the skin from photo-ageing and skin disorders. Topical application is a superior way to replenish the skin’s concentrations of vitamin C leaving skin firmer, healthier and more youthful.

Reliable scientific evidence suggests that the most potent form of topical vitamin C is L-Ascorbic acid. Unfortunately this form of Vitamin C is unstable and begins to oxidize as soon as it is exposed to air or mixed with a liquid.

Other forms of vitamin C, commonly found in cosmetics, like Magnesium Ascorbyl Palmitate and Ascorbyl Palmitate are more stable but less effective than L-Ascorbic Acid. Studies have found that these derivatives are either not absorbed by the body or not converted to the form of vitamin C that the body can use.

JINJA Skin Care’s C Duo Polisher Plus is a unique product specially formulated to preserve the integrity of the Ascorbic acid making sure that the product you use has not oxidized to form a useless, or more alarmingly, a toxic product. This is done by keeping the Ascorbic acid dry and separate to the liquid.

This polisher/mask consists of a Vitamin C dense powder and a liquid which have to be mixed together just before application. This produces a fresh, active product for your skin. After gently polishing the skin, the mixture is left on the face for at least 20 minutes to double up as a mask for maximum benefit.

The Liquid ( protects and moisturises)

Glycerin, a powerful humectant, is infused with Hibiscus, also known as the botox plant. Hibiscus contains natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids which gently exfoliates the skin, increases skin elasticity, fights skin damage by eliminating free radicals, moisturises and evens out your skin tone.

Palmarosa regenerates and rejuvenates the skin as it helps with the formation of new tissue, fights dry skin and combats skin infections.  Rose Geranium benefits all skin types, controls excess sebum secretion, balances the skin naturally, treats congestion and sluggishness leaving skin supple and healthy. Both oils are fragrant and uplifting.

The Powder ( a powerhouse of Vitamin C, ascorbic acid being the main ingredient.)

L-Ascorbic acid is the only form of Vitamin C that the body can use, plus once it is in the skin, it cannot be washed, rubbed or perspired off.

Pomegranate Extract contains about 40% elagic acid which inhibits the formation of sun and age spots. It stimulates collagen production, treats hyperpigmentation and brightens the complexion.

Amla powder from the Indian gooseberry, is rich in Vitamin C, minerals, amino acids and phenolic compounds. It promotes collagen production and stimulates new cell production.

Rice powder is an ancient cosmetic  ingredient used extensively in Asia. It gently exfoliates the skin leaving it lighter, brighter and re-energized.

Bentonite Clay is a healing clay that draws toxins from the skin.

All the ingredients work synergistically to exfoliate the skin, boost collagen production, protect and prevent the skin from photo-ageing and leaves your skin feeling soft, moisturized and glowing.
