The FACE ACTIVES line by Dr Kraut Milano consists of 5 references based on super concentrated active ingredients that guarantee an effective action and a high performance. Among these we find Hyaluronic Acid, Azelaic Acid, Mandelic Acid and a Mix of Essential Oils, but the main character of the line is the VITAMIN C vectorized: a transversal, versatile product with a lot of properties.

Vitamin C, technically called Ascorbic Acid, is a concentrate of comfort for all skin types, it is particularly suitable for illuminating and revitalizing dull skin during the autumn season and it gives a glowing and uniform complexion. Although it is a photosensitive molecule, which decreases in effectiveness and oxidizes if exposed to sunlight, it is not photosensitizing and it can be used both in morning and evening skincare routine.

What makes Dr Kraut's Vitamin C Unique?

Arco Cosmetici has chosen to introduce in the Face Actives line a product based on Vitamin C Vectorized, that differs from the one commonly used in cosmetics for its special formulation that combines Ascorbic Acid with Silicon. Silicon works as a vehicle, facilitating skin penetration and ensuring immediate and longer-lasting results compared to the common Vitamin C.

Let’s discover together the properties and benefits of Vitamin C vectorized!

Antioxidant action

Ascorbic Acid is the antioxidant par excellence of our body and as such, it neutralizes the action of free radicals, it counteracts the signs of skin aging and stimulates the production of collagen.

Lightening action 

Thanks to its ability to inhibit the overproduction of melanin, Vitamin C lightens the spots and compacts the complexion making it uniform; in addition, it acts on sunspots, discolorations and skin hyperpigmentations, reducing the risk of reappearance.

Regenerating action

Vitamin C stimulates skin regeneration, makes less visible signs of expression and strengthens the skin surface, improving its elasticity.

The Vitamin C vectorized by Dr Kraut Milano is an excellent ally to face the seasonal changes and not lose the tone and brightness of the complexion acquired during the summer. In addition, it protects against harmful environmental factors and works as an anti-inflammatory in the presence of acne.

How can it be included in the skincare routine?

Vitamin C can be used alone before proceeding with the application of the usual cream, or in synergy with Hyaluronic Acid to enhance the moisturizing and plumping effect. We do not recommend the combination with Azelaic and Mandelic Acid, both with an exfoliating action, which could cause irritation or be too much aggressive. 

For an even more intense and enhanced action, in addition to the topical use of Vitamin C we recommend a healthy and balanced diet, and remember that the main sources of Vitamin C are citrus fruits, kiwi, berries, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage and spinach.
