Organic Excellence - Stimulates Collagen - Promotes Skin Repair

Chemical Free Skin Cream - Topical Vitamin C Cream

For the maximum amount of skin repair and protection, researchers at Duke University Medical School have shown that the L-ascorbic acid form vitamin C needs to be topically applied and absorbed into the skin. The L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C is the only form of vitamin C that can be used by the body and must be used in at least a 5% concentration to achieve the maximum collagen synthesis.

The Organic Excellence C-Max Skin Repair Formula contains a 6.5% concentration of L-ascorbic acid. Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid form only) is the most abundant anti-oxidant found naturally in the skin and is the only antioxidant that has been proven to increase the production of collagen, which is an essential protein necessary for strong, healthy skin. The collagen protein is a kind of biological mortar located in the skin's second layer that forms the foundation for the underlying skin and keeps it firmer and appearing younger. Collagen production decreases with age, and when the level of collagen drops low enough, the underlying structure of the skin weakens, becomes less firm, and allows skin sagging and wrinkling to develop.

Why Organic Excellence C-MAX Skin Repair Improves Skin Health

It is difficult to get a high enough volume of vitamin C in the skin to start the production of the collagen protein through diet alone. Experts say that no research has shown that taking oral vitamin C supplements affects the aging process of the skin in any way. Vitamin C cream can reverse the signs of photo-aging, (one of the processes that cause a decrease in the production of collagen) causing skin to wrinkle. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, meaning that it is not stored in the body. The body will naturally eliminate any amount of vitamin C that it doesn't use. According to an article in the American Academy of Dermatology, "Vitamin C is depleted when the skin is exposed to the sun, pollution or smoking. Even minimal UV exposure can decrease the vitamin C level in the skin by 30%, while exposure to the ozone of city pollution can decrease the level by 55%."

UV rays also affect the production of collagen, therefore the more time that is spent in the sun, the sooner the aging process will begin. New studies have shown that topical vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is an excellent antioxidant for UVA and UVB protection, making it a useful addition to but not replacement for sunscreens. Because topical vitamin C does not absorb light in the UVA/UVB range, IT IS NOT A SUNSCREEN, for that, we recommend Badger Sunscreen.

The L-ascorbic acid form of Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant that has a proven ability to neutralize damage to skin cells caused by free radicals. Free radicals are one of the major causes of aging of the skin. According to a new French study, published in the European Journal of Dermatology, "one way to stave off the ravages of both time and sun damage is to boost collagen production via topical application of creams containing the L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C."

TEST FOR TOPICAL VITAMIN C PRODUCTS

  1. Is the L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C, the only true form of vitamin C that the body can use in the product? For the Organic Excellence C-Max Skin Repair Formula the answer is YES.
  2. If yes, is the L-ascorbic acid at a low pH so that it penetrates skin and high enough concentration to have an effect? For the Organic Excellence C-Max Skin Repair Formula the answer is YES. C-Max has a concentration of 6.5% of the L-ascorbic acid form of Vitamin C in each 2 ounce jar, and is formulated with a low enough pH to be absorbed into the skin. (Studies have shown that at least a 5% concentration is needed to achieve results.)
  3. Is the L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C in the product stable? For the Organic Excellence C-Max Skin Repair Formula, the answer is YES.
C-MAX Skin Repair by Organic Excellence is Made in America to assure quality and purity.

I have been using this product for several years after switching from store bought brands. My face no longer breaks out, my skin is softer and I feel this product is the reason why. Combined with the Silk protein anti-aging cream I feel my skin has never felt or looked better. Highly recommend.

I just started using it a few days ago but we have to wait for the results after a couple of weeks. Other than that I'm happy with the way the product feels and smells.

I have been using this, along with the Silk Protein Formula, as suggested, and my skin truly feels and sees a difference. It is easy to see why when you read the ingredients. These are ingredients that skin loves. Thanks for the great price, ET!

I have been using this cream for several months now and to my surprise, my skin tags went away. I also use the silk face cream a few minutes after I apply the C-Max and my face has never been softer. As I am sensitive to a lot of ingredients, there is nothing in either of the creams that irritate my skin. I am also very thankful for the fast and free shipping!

Since I'm older, I've got brown spots on my face from the bad old days in the sun. So I need a face cream with Vitamin C in order to fade those brown spots (plus some freckles that drive me wild). I use this cream at night and I love it. I can lay it on thick, but it's never greasy -- something that's really important to me. I've only had it about a month, but I think the brown spots are fading. I know this takes time. The other thing I love is that there's no weird chemical smell, which you often get with unscented creams. This one is truly unscented.

Winters are especially hard on my skin so I stock up. The Vitamin C. Skin Repair works best on my driest areas, feet, knees, elbows. It is fragrance free and wonderful for my extra sensitive skin. I am chemically sensitive.

I have been using this product for about a month now and I really don't see any difference. I was expecting a little change in my skin but as of now, nothing. It does have an nice texture and doesn't feel greasy at all. I wouldn't order it again. If I needed any other products, I wouldn't hesitate to order from this company. They have fast shipping. It was here within three days.
