It's difficult to get far in the anti-aging skincare world without coming across or at least considering vitamin A. Vitamin A receptor proteins exist within our skin ready to capture and employ it for the production, differentiation and normalisation of skin cells (keratinocytes), doing this by communicating with keratin genes. Vitamin A not only grows skin, it normalises, even optimises the process, facilitating production of natural moisturising fluid and suppressing excess oil secretions. As a Consequence of topically applied vitamin A is able to suppress, resolve and prevent the formation of pimples, increased skin hydration, decrease fine lines and wrinkle and improve barrier functioning- all highly desirable outcomes that deliver visible aesthetic improvements (1).
In recent years, the use of vitamins in skincare and haircare products has grown exponentially. This is largely due to the multitude of benefits that vitamins add to any skincare or haircare line, such as improving the texture of the skin, lightening and brightening skin, regenerating cells, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or as a powerful antioxidant.
