For María D'uol, the use of top quality active ingredients and in their proper concentration is vital to develop new formulas, it is something that we take very seriously and that we are proud to share and explain.

Some of these active principles have had a scientific endorsement for many years.

One of them is Vitamin C, an asset that we love and that has highly beneficial properties for skin care.

  1. It is a powerful antioxidant , vitamin C neutralizes free radicals that cause oxidative stress in the skin and cause premature aging. Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance in our cells due to an increase in free radicals and / or a decrease in antioxidants. Over time, this imbalance in the balance between free radicals and antioxidants can damage our tissues. It brings dull, tired-looking skin with it, and vitamin C gives you the boost you need to stay young and fresh.
  2. It is essential for the production of collagen , responsible for the density and firmness of the skin in the skin cells, it helps to maintain the structure of the skin and provide elasticity and firmness.
  3. Increases the number of capillaries in the dermis that are responsible for carrying out the oxygen exchange, for this reason when using products with vitamin C the skin will be more oxygenated, healthier and with more light.
  4. It also has depigmenting activity thanks to its inhibitory action on tyrosinase and its ability to block the formation of melanin.
