Nordmann Kompakt: Vitamins in cosmetics
Vitamins are popular ingredients in skin care products because of the benefits they have on dermatological treatments and cosmetics. But what exactly do vitamins do, how can they be incorporated into applications and what form should they be in? Our experts have the answers!
What exactly are vitamins?
Vitamins – coming from the Latin word vita – are organic compounds that are essential for life in small quantities. The body may produce them, but usually in insufficient quantities or not at all – meaning they must be obtained elsewhere, e.g. through food.
Vitamins help regulate metabolic processes, assist in other vital functions and are crucial for the immune system.
