Vitamin A Palmitate
Vitamin A is a lipophilic vitamin that is also a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin A Palmitate nourishes the skin, counteracts inflammations and protects cell membranes and other structures within the cells from the damage caused by free radicals and in this way helps to prevent skin disorders. It also plays an important role in the functioning of the eyes and the making of new skin and mucous membranes. Both retinol and retinyl palmitate are widely used ingredients in skin care products. Both are forms of Vitamin A. Retinol is also hugely popular in skin care products because the skin naturally converts it to retinoic acid, which helps to stimulate collagen production, increase cellular rejuvenation and decrease pore size, creating softer, smoother skin. Retinyl palmitate is considered to be a gentler, milder form of vitamin A. The combination of retinol and palmitic acid has been found in studies to be an effective antioxidant. Research has shown that Vitamin A can promote the effects of the skins natural moisturizing factor and gives the skin a radiant glow. Vitamin A can strengthen the effects of the skin’s outer layer to keep it looking firm and to support the effects of skin’s immune system to prevent the appearance of breakouts.
