Consumers Report Great Improvement To Skin
Infiltrating the largest organ of the human body and reaching its deep dermal layers is key to stimulating the renewal of cells. Many attempts have been made, but the results have been disappointing due to poor formulation and poor vitamin stability. Scientists at Inter-Cal set out to prove that Ester-C® Topical could reach down to deep layers of the skin where collagen and other important support structures are produced. In an independent test, Ester-C® Topical (14% vitamin C) and a cream containing 1% Ester-C® Topical were applied in a randomized pattern to eight sites on the skin of the inside forearms of five subjects. The test showed that vitamin C from both were able to penetrate the skin barrier to access the cells and tissues involved in the maintenance and repair of skin.
The true measure of Ester-C® Topical's effectiveness came in a controlled test using 39 volunteers. Participants in the study discontinued use of other creams and lotions, and applied 2% Ester-C® Topical cream twice a day. The women - predominantly middle-aged - evaluated the cream for four to five weeks, using it on the face, hands, legs, heels and elbows. Most were "medium" complected and had "dry" skin. Rough and/or chapped skin was reported to be the most common skin problem. Split skin and acne were also frequently noted at the start of the survey. The results:
- 70% reported improvement in skin roughness.
- 45% reported improvement in scaliness and cracks in the skin
- 33% reported reduction in wrinkles.
- 25-35% reported reduction in itching and redness.
- 75-80% were satisfied with the moisturizing and soothing properties of the cream.
"it healed my rough skin and heels"
"it soothed my hands right away"
"it had a lasting hydrating effect on my skin"
"it was very soothing"
"it improved my alligator skin a lot"
"it made my skin look healthier"
"I consider it a miracle ointment. No other moisturizer or cortisone creams worked like this one."
"My skin is much softer. I had people feel both arms without telling them why. Everyone said the skin on my left arm (where I applied the product) felt softer and moister."
"It protected my skin even in the pool and hot tub at the gym. The rest of my skin dried up with the chlorine, but my legs and heels are soft and supple."
"My hands are in dishwater eight hours a day, and the cream seemed to last longer than hand lotion."
The Last Word On Health And Beauty
Free-radical damage from aging, smoking, drinking, UV radiation and chemical pollutants deplete the body's natural antioxidant defenses, damage elastin and other support structures, and are thought to produce DNA mutations that can lead to skin cancer. When skin is short on vitamin C, it becomes vulnerable to free-radical damage and can't produce enough natural collagen - the body's intercellular cement.
Now, with the discovery of Ester-C® Topical, many exciting products are on the way-creams and lotions for face, hands, and body; lip protectors; cleansers; suntan/sunscreens; and shampoos and conditioners - all with a highly stable form of vitamin C that both penetrates and lasts.
Ester-C® Topical lasts and penetrates.
