Folic acid is also known as vitamin B9. Studies with cultivated human fibroblasts show that folic acid supports the growth of fibroblasts.
OK, but what are fibroblasts and why do I need them?
Fibroblasts are cells responsible for collagen production. Because of this fibroblasts are a total asset if you want full healthy and vibrant skin.
Folic acid is a fibroblasts best friend. Not only do they support fibroblasts they also protect them from damage caused by UV exposure. This means they can get on with producing collagen and not have to worry about dying from heat stroke in the process.
Folic Acid and preventing the ‘aged’ appearance of skin. What’s the connection?
Because of the role Folic Acid plays in supporting the skin’s dermal renewal process (protecting those collagen producing fibroblasts) it is considered a powerful ingredient for cosmetic products designed to help prevent the appearance of aging.
We produce a number of products that capitalise on this star ingredient for a range of different applications.
