Mismo Body Care has used science with a little help from nature to create its ACE serum. They have done this using synergy in the form of vitamins A, C & E. When put together as a combination these anti-oxidants really are the bench mark when it comes to fighting the signs of aging.
Vitamin A – Known as the skin vitamin, Mismo when doing its research decided on Retinyl Palmitate because it is a safe form of vitamin A and works on the cellular turn over. In younger skin the cell turnover is much quicker, as we age it slows down and shows up in the form of skin thickness, vitamin A’s job is to quicken it up, to thin the skin out again for that youthful look.
Vitamin C – This vitamin is an anti-oxidant so its job is to repair and encourage new even cell growth, it’s also a melanin inhibitor, over production of melanin shows up in the form of brown patches and freckles, vitamin C encourages a more refined and even skin look, it reduces the appearance of pigmentation and smooths the feel of the skin.
Vitamin E – The topical benefits of vitamin E are that it offers protection to the fat layer in the cell structure, this results in keeping moisturise in the skin. If you take the moisture away from the skin, the skin becomes dry and wrinkled.
Mismo believes vitamin C is a necessity when it comes to anti-ageing so they incorporate it into two of their anti-ageing products, ACE Serum and their Anti-Wrinkle cream. These two products are two components of their Anti-Ageing trio.
Vitamin C is an important nutrient which is a vital component in the body’s production of collagen, these building blocks keep the skin plump and young looking, it is also a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate aged skin and skin that has become photo-damaged due to over exposure of ultra violet rays. Over time this exposure causes deep set wrinkles, fine lines, brown marks due to the over production of melanin and loss of collagen and elastin. Think collagen as the frame that holds up the elastin – the bounce in our skin.
Mismo uses an oil form of vitamin C called ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, compared to vitamin C that is in a “water soluble” such as the ascorbic acid found in tablet and powder form. Water soluble vitamin C is very volatile and oxidises causing the vitamin C to change from an antioxidant which is great for the skin into a free radical toxin. Using an oil form of vitamin C ensures that the vitamin C can do its job for 12 – 18 months without oxidising.
Mismo also uses vitamin C in its Anti-Wrinkle cream, this cream contains the perfect synergy of A, C and E and has been coupled with hyaluronic acid another very important ingredient in skin care. Hyaluronic acid acts to plump up the skin from underneath acting like a cushion, helping to eliminate fine lines and even out deeper ones and also helps in preventing them in the first place. Hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a “fountain of youth” product.
So what do you get when you apply vitamin C to the skin? Younger looking skin that is for sure. ACE Vitamin C serum is a must use if you suffer from Rosacea or mature skin.
