Vitamins & provitamins
Vitamins are known for their critical role in human health and in all body tissues, including the skin. Some vitamins, such as vitamins A and E, or pantothenic acid in the form of panthenol, are not only ingested. They can be applied directly to the skin to protect its structure or prevent premature aging.
Many vitamins and provitamins are included in nearly all exclusive beauty products. Due to their ability to fight the harmful effects of sunlight UV irradiation, immunity-enhancing function, and anti-inflammatory properties, they have significant protective effects on the skin.
