Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is part of the group of anti-oxidant vitamins. It is the main non-enzyme, water-soluble anti-oxidant of the skin. It plays a role that palliates the oxidative damage caused by ultraviolet radiation in epidermal cells, performing a bleaching action. Stimulates collagen synthesis, activating its regulator gene (transcriptional effect). It is also involved in the synthesis of significant elements of the extracellular matrix of the connective tissue, as well as in the activation of peptidic hormones and the catabolism of tyrosine.
