C FactorTM's Ingredients:
| Ester-C: A Technological Breakthrough:|
14.3% pure & stable Vitamin C. The Big news about Ester C is the shelf life. While most Vitamin C
used in topical products is so unstable that 90% of its potency is gone after the first month (30 days).
C Factor's main ingredient, Ester-C Topical retains 90% of its Vitamin C activity for 2 years (730
days). This translates to more potency in the bottle, so when you apply it, it sends concentrations of
stable vitamin C directly into the skin.
To prove that Ester C Topical achieves greater stability than ordinary vitamin C, scientists at Inter-
Cal pioneered laboratory and analytical methods that gauge the stability of vitamin C liquids, topicals
and cosmetics. Extensive accelerated tests revealed the remarkably long shelf life of Ester C
tropical...and the remarkably short shelf life of ordinary vitamin C. To understand the stability concept,
consider the vitamin C in your orange juice. You buy it 'fresh' at the market. But as this chart shows,
its vitamin C content deteriorates very rapidly. By contrast, the vitamin C in Ester C Topical lasts
over two years with a potency of 90%.
Pycnogenol : Maintains Skin Health :
| WHAT IS PYCNOGENOL?|
Pycnogeno is a natural plant extract from the bark of the Maritime Pine, pinus maritima, growing along
the coast of south-west France, in the Lands of Gascony. Pycnogenol is a water-soluble flavonoid
extract with highly bio available procyanidins, catechins, taxifolins and the typical spectrum of phenolic
Pycnogeno has proof of its bio availability in man. Pycnogeno a powerful blend of antioxidants and a
natural anti-inflammatory agent, helps your body to combat environmental stress, keeps your
circulatory system fit and combats joint inflammation. Pycnogeno improves and normalizes capillary
activity and strengthens capillary walls. It helps restore flexibility to arterial walls. Pycnogeno binds
collagen fibers, realigning them in the process to more youthful, undamaged structures. Elasticity and
flexible strength is restored to connective tissue. The versatility goes beyond the fact that
Pycnogeno is a potent blend of antioxidants: its benefits are also due to it being a unique vitamin C
"action-helper". Current research has shown that Pycnogeno reduces the risk circulatory diseases
(stroke, vascular and heart diseases) , reduces inflammation (arthritis, edema), maintains skin health
and helps alleviate a variety of other conditions.
Pine bark flavonoid polyphenols were in used by the native Indians of North America in a tea brewed
from the bark of pine trees growing along the Atlantic coast. History indicates that pine bark was used
medicinally as early as the 13th century. French explorer Jacques Cartier was introduced to the tea
when Indians saved most of his crew from death by scurvy during the winter of 1534. More than 400
Years later Universities began studies on flavonoids. Their search for bio-active flavonoids eventually led
them to French coastal pine bark, where they found a rich source of a narrow group of highly bio
available and bio-active flavonoids in the bark of the French maritime pine of Landes de Gascogne.
Horphag's continuing work by researchers in France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Finland, Germany,
Hungary, Japan, Switzerland and the United States over the last 30 years has confirmed the chemical
structure, effects and absence of toxicity in Pycnogeno?

similar to extremely effective strong antioxidants. It prevents production of Oxygen free radicals
initially, due to efficient controlled use of Oxygen and Hydrogen electrons which then ensures that
cellular anti-oxidants have less free radicals to negate.
WHAT IS COQ10?
Co-Q10 is a totally natural substance found in every cell of the human body, especially in the
heart. Ubiquinone is produced by the liver naturally. Co-Q10 is found in the food chain. Foods such
as fresh fruit and vegetables have low levels whilst raw meat or very undercooked meat has potentially
Co-Q10 is harvested from a unique algae source produced in Japan. The Co-Q10 is removed without
damaging the algae which is then able to recover and consequently can be re-harvested continually.
Co-Q10 acts similar to extremely effective strong antioxidants. It prevents production of Oxygen free
radicals initially, due to efficient controlled use of Oxygen and Hydrogen electrons which then ensures
that cellular anti-oxidants have less free radicals to negate. In catalytic pathways it sparks the
manufacture of Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP), which is the basic energy currency molecule of the
cell. ATP is the fuel that electrifies the Mitochondria. Co-Q10 is the precursor of ATP. ATP is created
within the Electron Transport Systems (ETS). There can be up to 15,000 Electron Transport Systems
in one Mitochondria. The numbers differ greatly in various body parts and individuals.
Without the presence of Co-Q10 in all mammal cells, the cellular Mitochondrial electronic balance
diminishes with increasing age, resulting in ever increasing numbers of free radicals pervading the cell.
This decline in the health of your Mitochondria is Mitochondrial disease.
Co-Q10 is the key to accessing HEZ (Hydrogen Efficiency Zone).

like fine wine, AGED
Each herb is carefully selected for it's natural constituents and blended in specific proportions to
maximize the effect of the herbal residuals in C Factor. The first process is extraction with purified and
filtered water to perserve the integrity of the herbs. The second is an enzymatic process that boosts and
enhances the extraction. The third stage is a carefully monitored fermentation process. And like a fine
wine, it is then allowed to settle and mature before it is triple filtered into Bio-Ferm.
like the ocean tides, TIMED
Bio-Ferm is governed by the laws of nature and chemistry. The production time is measured in weeks
and months rather than hours like most high speed chemical processes.Bio-Ferm is timed to coincide
with specific phases of the moon. For thousands of years man has seen the effects of the moon on the
tides, the plant growth and cyclic animal behavior. This may not be the fastest method, but it is the
most effective method.
I've tried every product in the duty free stores, but NOTHING has worked better than C Factor. I'm very happy to have my own skin back from the dry "cabin skin".

"As a female business executive, and for simply a general feeling of self confidence, my appearance is very important. I have what we ladies like to refer to as mature skin, skin that has been around for way over 50 years. In these many years I have tried most product types that have come on the market in my quest to remain as young as possible for as long as possible.
One essential skin care regimen particularly touted by my dermatologist has been to 'use a C based product'. Vitamin C actually rejuvenates and replaces old skin cells with new cells creating a more beautiful, smoother and softer skin that actually glows. While this works, I found all the C products I used to be so drying or sticky when applied to the skin that I could only use them at bedtime and never under makeup.
I was delighted to discover VesPro's C Factor product. It is totally non-drying, gives my skin the rejuvenated new skin glow and best of all I can use it under makeup as a moisturizing base. Thank you, VesPro, for putting all the necessary parts together in one bottle for a more beautiful me." ....Carol Wagoner
I have what we ladies like to refer to as mature skin, skin that has been around for way over 40 years. C Factor is totally non drying, not sticky, gives my skin the rejuvenated new glow and best of all I can use it under makeup as a moisturizing base.
When I smile with my soft and glowing skin, people think I'm at least ten years younger than my real age, thanks to C Factor. It's the first thing I use after each time I wash my face, you should too.
....Hong Ai Kee
After several months of use and trying three other Vitamin C products I really couldn't tell that they were doing much for me. I was beginning to doubt that Vitamin C could really make a big difference, until I used C Factor. It works.

Frequently Asked Questions
|Why is vitamin C good for the skin? |
All the cells of your body require vitamin C to make connective tissue and carry out other essential life processes. In addition, the skin - as the first line of defense against many environmental assaults - uses up a lot of this vitamin as it protects the skin's layers from damage by sun, smoke, and aging. Older skin, in particular, may not get enough vitamin C from the body's internal blood supply, so it makes sense to apply it topically to those areas where it can fortify needed antioxidant protection.
How does it act as an antioxidant?
Inside the cells, vitamin C becomes an important means of maintaining the "reducing state" required to protect against oxidation. In the body, it rejuvenates several other essential molecules - including vitamin E, the important fat-soluble antioxidant. Vitamin C serves as an antioxidant by scavenging free radicals. These are highly reactive chemical species that are generated in cells and tissues by sunlight, tobacco smoke, and also many seemingly normal metabolic processes that involve oxygen from the atmosphere.
What's different about Ester C®?
Ester C® is a patented, non-acidic form of vitamin C in a complex containing an essential mineral. The complex also contains metabolites of vitamin C that have been shown in scientific studies to influence the cellular uptake of the vitamin. So Ester C® is the smartest choice for a topically applied vitamin C. It won't irritate the skin; ordinary acidic vitamin C (ascorbic acid) may. It penetrates through the tough epidermal barrier of the skin; other forms of vitamin C - including many fat-soluble forms - have not been shown to do so.
How does it get vitamin C directly into the skin without degrading?
Ester C® Topical contains the same Ester C® mineral ascorbates that have enjoyed great popularity over the years as oral supplements. It was designed, however, to overcome the notorious instability of vitamin C in products containing a lot of water, such as cosmetic creams and lotions. From the manufacturer's standpoint, Ester C® Topical has an extremely long shelf life and offers ease of formulation because it is compatible with so many cosmetic ingredients. When creams and lotions are formulated with the Ester C® Topical, the vitamin C is protected longer from the deleterious action of water in the finished product, so the vitamin C has a longer lifetime in the product. This means that consumers get the vitamin C they expect from the finished product, so it can go on the skin as vitamin C, not a degraded product.
Why doesn't ordinary vitamin C last?
Ordinary vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a poor choice to deliver vitamin C in a cosmetic product because it is acidic and can't be protected from significant oxidation in the finished product. In most cosmetics, ordinary vitamin C goes right into the water component, where it doesn't stand a chance against oxidation and degradation. Once degraded, it has no more vitamin potency - on or off the skin.
Should I also take a vitamin supplement?
Yes. Taking vitamin C orally helps your skin from the inside out, while Ester C® Topical works from the outside in. Vitamin supplements containing patented Ester C® mineral ascorbates are gentle on the stomach and readily absorbed.
Does Vitamin C skin care work?
|Do Vitamin C Products Work? Facts You Should Know About Topical Vitamin C |
In recent years, there has been an explosion in the number of skin rejuvenation, anti-wrinkle products with vitamin C. Do their claims have any substance? Do these products work? The situation is more complicated than you thought. On one hand, vitamin C does possess definite merits for wrinkle reduction and skin rejuvenation. On the other hand, most vitamin C products don't work.
Ordinary Vitamin C Does Not Last
Most vitamin C formulas are relatively unstable unless in a dry form. In the presence of air or other oxidizing agents, vitamin C is easily converted to an oxidized form. Vitamin C in its oxidized form is of no benefit for collagen synthesis or free radical scavenging. It actually promotes free radical formation causing damage to collagen, DNA and other vital structures. If skin care products are stored or prepared poorly, vitamin C may already be oxidized by the time you apply it to your skin.
But these problems can easily be resolved if: Vitamin C concentration in a product is high enough to create a substantial increase in vitamin C levels in skin cells:
The Vitamin C is absorbed quickly by the skin so that it has the chance to work while intact;
Vitamin C is properly preserved by sufficient amounts of protective substances. Ordinary vitamin C is so fragile it oxidizes and disappears upon contact with air, water, heat and light. Most vitamin C used in topical products is so unstable that 90% of its potency is gone after the first month. VesPro's C Factor main ingredient, Ester-C Topical, contains 14.3% vitamin C, and retains 90% of its vitamin C activity for two years at room temperature. C FactorTM 14.3% vitamin C is a uniquely stable formulation that doesn't degrade rapidly like other vitamin C preparations may. Another plus to the unique C FactorTM formula is the extremely fast absorption and non sticky application which comes from the inclusion of CoQ10, pycnogenol and a proprietary herbal complex. It maintains potency in the bottle, so when you apply it, it sends concentrations of stable vitamin C directly into the skin.
C Is for Collagen
Vitamin C is known for its importance in the manufacture of collagen. Topical vitamin C has also shown to prevent the free radical skin damage that occurs following exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun. Free radicals are unstable molecules that steal electrons from your body's healthy molecules to balance themselves. Unchecked, free radicals can cause significant tissue damage and contribute to premature wrinkling.
Vitamin C has been used as an aid for the healing of wounds, to help boost the immune system, and help fight the common cold. Recent scientific research has shown that vitamin C is also a potent antioxidant that is capable of preventing and possibly even reversing the effects of aging on human skin.
It is for this reason that we use vitamin C as a key ingredient in our anti-aging formulations. If topically applied, a high-dose vitamin C serum would also help prevent and treat dry skin problems, especially for geriatric patients.
Vitamin C and Melanogenesis
Studies have shown that vitamin C reduces the formation of melanin. This result predicts that vitamin C could have a skin lightening effect because melanin is responsible for the dark pigmentation of human skin. Studies indicated that if applied topically, vitamin C has skin lightening effects. Vitamin C can be used as a skin clarifier to even skin tones and lightens the dark skin blemishes and age spots that are characteristic of aging skin. It is especially effective around the eyes.
Vitamin C and Free Radicals
Studies indicated that less collagen is produced if human fibroblasts are exposed to reactive oxygen species (free radicals). Free radicals are thought to be responsible for cross-linking of elastin and collagen. This cross-linking causes wrinkles and skin sagging. Excessive exposure to UV radiation can damage the skin. Topical vitamin C is capable of controlling the inflammation resulting from ultraviolet exposure that eventually leads to wrinkling and skin cancer.
Recent studies show that topically applied vitamin C is absorbed into the dermis in levels high enough to protect the skin from UV radiation damage as measured by erythema and sunburn formation.
Sun exposure - Premature Skin Aging
|Know the Risks of Premature Skin Aging|
Protect Yourself :
* Protect yourself and family (especially children) from sun's harmful UV rays and pollution. * Protect yourself daily against sun damage and incidental exposure with Vitamin C Skin Serum.
Sun Damage Skin:
* Damaging UVA and UVB rays are always present, regardless of weather conditions.
* Most skin damage occurs from incidental exposure without adequate protection. For example: walking, * According to the National Cancer Institute, 1 out of 7 Americans develope skin melanoma during their
jogging, cycling, driving, sports, swimming etc.)
Get the Facts:
* 90% of premature skin aging is cause by sun exposure.
* SPF sun protection does not do the job alone. * Not all sunscreens protect against UVB rays (sun burn) and UVA rays (sun aging).
Tips to Protect Your Skin:
* Avoid direct sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
* Use SPF 15 or greater every day.
* Avoid reflective surfaces like water, snow and glass.
* Seek shade whenever possible.
* Wear protective clothing and eyewear.
* Report suspicious skin changes to your physician. * Apply sunscreen to children of all ages, including those 6 months and older
