Humans have lost the ability to make Vitamin C because of a mutation in the gene that codes for the enzyme (L-gulonolactone oxidase or GLO). This mutation stops us from catalyzing the last step in vitamin C synthesis. This makes it vital to get it from outside sources.
Our body is unable to synthesize vitamin C this is called an “inborn error of metabolism.” Humans also have a minimal capacity for storing vitamin C; we can only hold about a 30 day supply. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to get our vitamin C from external dietary sources on a daily basis.
The recognition of vitamin C is associated with a history of an unrelenting search for the cause of the ancient haemorrhagic disease scurvy. Isolated in 1928, vitamin C is essential for the development and maintenance of connective tissues. It plays an important role in bone formation, wound healing and the maintenance of healthy gums.- https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/

Our Serums (both of which contain Rosehip Seed oil, Renewal Serum containing Marula Oil) AND our Herbal topical Magnesium wrap are all packed full of Vitamin C in various forms (all natural forms of course)
