Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitat)

Retinyl palmitat is a very stable and skin tolerant form of vitamin A. It is changed into retinol by enzymes in the skin, easily absorbed via the cell walls and then changed again into retinoic acid. By taking this little detour, the skin gains from the positive effect of the retinoic acid without any side effects, which would occur with a direct, external application. Vitamin A supports growth of keratinozytes, improves the immune system of the skin, stabilizes pigment cells, improves natural moisture and leaves the skin’s surface looking soft and smooth.

Vitamin B3 (Niacinamid)

Niacin is contained in all skin cells and participates in the carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism. It aids collagen and pigment building, regulates the influence of UV rays on the skin, manages moisture balance and keratinisation of the upper skin layers.

Vitamin B5 (Panthenol)

Panthenol increases the skin’s ability to hydrate, increases cell regeneration and activates the body’s very own production of lipids. The barrier function of the skin is being strengthened.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxin)

The water-soluble vitamin B6 pyridoxin is part of collagen and elasticin networking and thus in maintaining a healthy vascular systems.

Vitamin B7 (Biotin)

Contained e.g. in egg yolk, dry yeast and oats, biotin as a water-soluble vitamin is part of a number of metabolic procedures. It ensures normal cell development and an uninterrupted growth of cells.

Vitamin C (Ascorbinsäure)

Due to its varied effects, the water-soluble vitamin C is something of a well of youth for the skin. It encourages production of collagen and slows down its withdrawal at the same time. Tissue is strengthened, skin appears more youthful. Further, vitamin C protects from attacks by free radicals as a result of too much sun, nicotine or damaging environmental influences.

Vitamin E (Tocopherol)

The oily-moist membrane of the cells mainly consists of unsaturated fatty acids and has a tendency to oxidation, which can lead to premature ageing of skin. Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin, works against this in many ways. It strengthens the natural UV protection of the skin as a strong antioxidant and stops building of free radicals before these can damage skin cells. Further it reduces the transepidermal water loss. Fine lines are smoothed out, the resistance of the skin against damaging external influences is increased.
