It has been shown there is a correlation between a deficiency in L-ascorbic acid (a particular form of vitamin C), tyrosine, and zinc- and intrinsically aged or photo-damaged skin.  Originally launched in 1991, Cellex-C was the first topical ascorbic acid formulation to be successfully commercialized.

The patented complex was then combined with a phyto-chemical composition to produce a delivery system that would facilitate the absorption of the nutrients into the skin. The visual results are compelling, with over 85% of users reporting a dramatic difference in their skin when using Cellex C.
