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, anti-aging and anti-wrinkle effects, and antioxidant 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 therefore significantly improve the performance of cosmetic and personal care products. The most widely used vitamins in cosmetics are vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and provitamin B5.
