of all types. From cuts, burns and recovery from surgical wounds, Vitamin C helps the skin to heal
better.

4) Vitamin C improves colour, radiance and tone: it is used in the treatment and maintenance of several
pigmentation disorders such as Melasma, post inflammatory hyper pigmentation and general
prevention of unwanted discoloration.
