A new facial cleansing gel has been created that contains vitamins A and C, which are essential to good skin.
The vitamin-rich gel is made from an extract of turmeric, which is the root of an Asian herb.
The ingredient is called vanicrux facial cleansor and is the first such product in the world to contain the nutrients.
“We’ve made this as a vitamin-enriched facial cleansing gel, not a shampoo,” said Jürgen Sauer, head of cosmetics at Skagen AG, the German-based manufacturer of the facial cleansors.
Vanicruxy is an essential ingredient for the human body, but not all facial cleansings are created equal.
The ingredient that makes up most facial cleanses, the chemical form of vitamin C, is also present in most cosmetics, so making an effective product is difficult.
Sauer and colleagues were inspired to create the vitamin-enhanced cleansers by looking at ingredients found in traditional cosmetics and applying them to a face to improve skin texture.
In the lab, they used a powder formulation of vitamin A and B3 and vitamin C to create a new type of facial cleansator that contains both vitamins.
The gel contains the vitamins while leaving skin feeling soft and smooth, while the natural oils help to improve texture.
The research, published in the journal Food Chemistry, showed that the vitamin and vitamin-C-rich cleansers worked better on oily skin than the less-toxic formulation.
While most facial cleaners contain a combination of ingredients, vanicruxs contains only one ingredient: turmeric.
The researchers also noted that the products did not have any added ingredients that could cause allergic reactions.
The researchers say the vitamin C-rich and vitamin A-rich versions of the cleansers were well-absorbed, and could be used in combination.
The study shows that vitamin-based cleansers can work effectively in a variety of skin types and for people with a range of skin conditions.
It also provides the first evidence that vitamin C can be added to a cleanser to enhance the effectiveness of a cleansing product.
