Optimizing vitamin D for cosmetics

Vytrus Biotech offers a new concept to obtain plumped and luminous skin

Vitamin D deficiency is a global pandemic affecting more than a billion people worldwide[1], and it must be treated urgently to prevent the morbidity, mortality and increasing costs associated with the treatment of the chronic diseases involved.[2].

Described as “the sunshine vitamin”, vitamin D is a steroid with hormone-like activity. It regulates the functions of over 1000 genes and is essential for growth and development. Current research indicates that vitamin D deficiency is implicated in several diseases such as heart and autoimmune diseases, among others[3].

Although there is clinical evidence that links vitamin D deficiency to various diseases and physiological dysfunctions, less is known about the role of vitamin D directly on the skin. Vitamin D is synthesized topically and distributed throughout the body. This vitamin D has a direct effect on the health and appearance of the skin, and Vytrus Biotech has delved into this area and how to apply it to cosmetics.
