Dermagen C provides a high concentration of transdermally-absorbed vitamin C to ensure rapid transport to deep tissue and musculo-skeletal sites. Studies show that an adequate amount of vitamin C is vitally important in collagen formation, and for the repair and maintenance of joints, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and skin.
Dermagen C is indicated for tendonitis, bursitis, and pain due to trauma and inflammation; for skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis, liver and age spots, dermatitis and wrinkles; and as a daily face and body moisturizer.
This product contains AA2G (Ascorbic Acid 2-Glucoside from Hayashilbara), which is a natural vitamin C stabilized with glucose. AA2G can function in essentially an identical manner to vitamin C, preventing pigmentation of skin by suppressing melanin synthesis in melanocytes. It also has the ability to reduce the amount of pre-existing melanin, resulting in a lighter pigmentation of the skin.
AA2G slowly releases vitamin C, which has been shown to promote the synthesis of collagen by human skin fibroblasts, thereby increasing the suppleness of the skin. AA2G can provide these benefits over a prolonged time period.
Oxygen radicals, which are formed in the skin during its exposure to sunlight, are believed to cause skin damage and reddening of the skin. AA2G slowly releases vitamin C, which acts as a free radical scavenger, thereby reducing the amount of skin inflammation and roughness. ?
