Why We Need Vitamin C

We all know that vitamin C is perfect for soothing the symptoms of cold and flu during the winter season. But did you also know that it's a wonderful way of boosting your complexion? Here's how your morning Vitamin C hit can help make your skin sparkle.

Works as an antioxidant

As an antioxidant, vitamin C targets free radicals. These free radicals are responsible for not only several chronic diseases but the aging process too. By eliminating free radicals, vitamin C promotes anti-aging properties and keeps our skin looking young and vibrant. The vitamin C in ONNE's Complexion Cream is from the Kakadu Plum which is the highest source in the world.

Promotes healthy skin

This outstanding vitamin has a metabolizing function, which means that promotes a healthy body. By inhibiting free radicals, the vitamin reduces the appearance of sunburns and other scar tissue. The vitamin also helps build collagen, which promotes skin elasticity. Having more collagen prevents the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging. The vitamin also acts as a melanin inhibitor, which can lighten dark spots on the skin. This helps to produce an even, clear skin tone that is free from unwanted age spots.

Natural source of Vitamin C

Many products claiming to contain vitamin C will actually use a nasty synthesised version of the ingredient. We don't want to put chemicals such as acetone on our skin which is why ONNE sources our vitamin C naturally. The vitamin is found naturally in ingredients such as Kakadu Plum, Orange Peel, Coconut Milk and Rosehip, which are some of our favourite ingredients. In addition to the Complexion Cream, it is a star in many of your favourite ONNE products. The coconut milk in the Beauty Bar and the rosehip in our Balancing Body Balm are both excellent sources.
