Science On Skin: Multivitamins+
To transform a clear complexion to a firm, luminous and glowing one, SOS Multivitamins+ is formulated with a high concentration of Vitamins A, C and E, and a proprietary blend of stem cells, botanical extracts, collagen and potent peptides. When applied on the skin, Vitamin A helps to thicken and stimulate the dermis, so it reduces wrinkles and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin. In addition, Vitamin A increases the deposition of collagen, therefore it slows the normal aging breakdown of collagen and elastin. Vitamins C and E are powerful additions to an anti-aging skin-care regimen. The antioxidants neutralise free radicals that age the skin, which helps to keep skin firm and youthful, and reverse and prevent signs of aging. The anti-oxidant activities are intensely boosted by the addition of proprietary Stem Cells, which dramatically improve elasticity and firmness for a younger appearance.

“You have no idea what a retinoid is. The term describes vitamin A derivatives that unclog pores, boost collagen to reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discoloration and smooth the skin” – says Women Health Magazine SOS Multivitamins+ contains not just Retinol but also Salicylic Acid that helps slough off the stubborn dead cells of the skin, boosting the action of unclogging pores, improves the acne and blemishes on the skin. Retinol further promotes the production of collagen in the skin, but this production is only possible when there is sufficient moisture in the skin cells. Thus this serum contains Hyaluronic Acid and Green Tea Extracts to moisturize and condition the skin, thus allowing the boost of collagen
production to take place. Uneven skin tones of the skin is greatly reduced through this boost of cell turnover within the skin layers. Another key ingredient is Vitamin C. Many products in the market claim to have very high Vitamin C concentrations, such as 25% or 30 % of pure Vitamin C in their serums. In actual fact however, Vitamin C is a very strong antioxidant, in their purest and natural forms, they are very easily oxidised when exposed to air. Thus even if products claim to have up to 50% of concentrated Vitamin C in their formulations, it is actually futile if it is unstable. Vitamin C will be oxidised even before application onto your face. In assessing Vitamin C and associated products, stability is the priority concern, and also the absorption rate into the skin. “Although concentrations of vitamin C up to 30% have been used for animal studies, maximal absorption was achieved with a 20% vitamin C solution, with higher
concentrations showing lower absorption. Topical application of ascorbic acid will cross the epidermis into the underlying dermal layers” – says Micronutrient Information Centre by Oregon State University. So, the higher the concentration does not necessary means better.
