What Are Free Radicals?
Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that carry one unpaired electron. Free radicals from the sun, smoke, and pollution attack the body daily and are responsible for 80% of the signs of premature aging, including lines and wrinkles. Have you ever cut open an apple and left it in the air? It doesn't take long before the fruit starts to turn brown and dry from oxidation. This is an example of free radical damage. What did your mother teach you to put on it to keep it from browning? Vitamin C (lemon juice), of course! Be sure to ask us about our Vitamin C&E and Intense Wrinkle Serum. These products support the body's ability to fight off these free radicals. It's proven that using products topically containing certain vitamins protect you on the outside from harmful free radicals.
