Both vitamins and minerals are well known to be good for the body when ingested because they play a key role in overall health and well-being. Vitamins are well known for their co-enzymatic properties, and are mostly ingested through the food that we eat. By chelating naturally derived vitamins, they become more easily penetrated and available to the skin allowing them to work to benefit in overall appearance.
Unlike vitamins, not a single mineral can be synthesized within the human body. Without minerals, vitamins could not be assimilated and many enzymatic reactions could never take place without a mineral acting as a co-factor. They also are extremely beneficial to the skin when applied topically for the same reasons, giving strength and vitality.
Minerals may be divided into two categories: major elements and micronutrients. The major elements typically consist of calcium, phosphorous, silicon, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride, and sulfur. The micronutrients consist of iron, copper, iodine, manganese, zinc, fluorine, cobalt, chromium, molybdenum, and selenium.
When going through the chelating process, the beneficial aspects of all vitamins and minerals can be brought out with the damaging effects becoming limited. At Formulator Sample Shop, we have a variety of vitamins and minerals as well as mineral mixes which are able to harness their natural environmental functions and apply them directly to the skin.
