Question
You mentioned 30% Vitamin C Palmitate as being good for making skin look younger. I was wondering what it is since before you went on vacation. lol. Is this by prescription only or would health food stores have it, or what? How is it used?

Also what do hair conditioners do? Are they basically vitamins for hair? And if I left Nioxin conditioner in my hair for an hour would that help ensure I get the maximum benefit from it?

Answer
The term hair conditioner is vague. Hair conditioners fall into different groups according to what you want to accomplish with your hair. People with thin hair need a specific kind of conditioner, people with thick, dry hair need another...

Conditioners fall into six major categories:

Moisturizers
Reconstructors
Acidifiers
Detanglers
Thermal Protectors
Glossers
Oils (E.F.A.'s- essential fatty acids)

Revision Skin Care sells a vitamin C lotion that is 30% and is used on the face twice a day.
