There are countless benefits to Vitamin B from the function of the body to external beauty and the health of the skin.
The essential vitamin B
There are eight types of Vitamin B, all with different functions; B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, B-7, B-9, B-12. As a whole Vitamin B helps maintain the health of cells, regulate the nervous system, form red blood cells, and turn food into energy. Vitamin B can be found in a variety of foods including meat, dairy, fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
Vitamin B can be used as a remedy for signs of ageing, as well as reduce the sensitivity of skin:
- Vitamin B-3 lessens aggravation and indications of ageing like wrinkles and flaws by smoothing out the skin. It can also help treat a variety of skin conditions, like dermatitis, acne, rosacea, eczema, dry and sun-damaged skin, and hyperpigmentation.
- Vitamin B-5 helps preserve moisture underneath the skin's surface by preventing water loss and absorbing moisture from the air, helping alleviate dry and cracked skin.
- Vitamin B-12 is necessary for cell reproduction and assists with expanding cell recovery to stimulate wound healing. It also reduces inflammation, dryness, and acne.
Vitamin B is used in many of our formulas under its purest form or in actives such as panthenol (B5), sweet almond oil (B7), apple concentrate or Aloe Vera (B12) in our Hydra Sponge line, our Sensitive line, our Rejuvenation line or our Orotherm line.
