Niora's Alpha C Serum pionneered the use of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) anti-aging skin care with Vitamin C Esters for sensitive and acne-prone skin. Vitamin C and alpha hydroxy fruit acids are the perfect match. Alpha hydroxy fruit acids exfoliate the outer layer of skin reducing wrinkling, and stimulating the skin into renewed growth, and Vitamin C takes perfect advantage of this process by ensuring new growth will be collagen rich, thus enhancing skin firmness.
The use of Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Vitamin C together in one skin care treatment were made possible by the development of a new generation of skin stable, and pH compatible, natural Vitamin C's used in skin care include the ester and ogliopeptide protein complexes (ascorbic acid polypeptide, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate) and ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate. These Vitamin Cs are oxidation proof, and thus stable, because each molecule of Vitamin C is surrounded with various molecular arrangements of proteins and lipid/protein complexes. This not only prevents contact with oxygen, but uniquely enhances penetration into the skin, which is mildly acidic.
These new Vitamin C's are derived from natural sources and the lipids and proteins used are from soy. The result is a natural vegetable sourced C encapsulated in highly bio-available skin-identical proteins.
Vitamin C has been clinically proven to stimulate collagen production. Vitamin C does this by turning on the skin s natural collagen-making mechanisms. Vitamin C hydrates, or attaches a molecule of water to the enzyme proline, a component of collagen. The skin uses proline as it measure of how much collagen is present in the skin. Hydrating proline, however, masks the presence of proline from the skin, without affecting the skin firming properties of collagen. Thus the skin, unable to detect proline, starts producing more collagen. The result is firmer, more youthful skin. Thousands of women and men nationwide are discovering just how much better the combination of alpha hydroxies and Vitamin C work.
