Our Top Vitamin C Products of The Moment
We know that vitamin C is important, but do we really know why? Do we know just how important? We know we need it for immune support, so we eat veggies high in C like broccoli, bell peppers, strawberries, plums, leafy greens, and eggplant. But topical C is just as crucial.

Vitamin C is not only a major player in our glow factor, but it’s a basic building block of collagen. This means that even though vegans don’t consume animal collagen, if they have a high intake of vitamin C both internally and externally, they can support their body and skin’s natural collagen production. Here are some of our favorite c-packed products we use to keep our skin happy.
