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.
