What Are the Ingredients in Perfectil Vitamins?
Individuals who eat a well-balanced diet may not need to take a multivitamin supplement for health reasons, but some people are still turning to vitamins for the sake of beauty, according to the Consumer Reports website. Perfectil, manufactured by Vitabiotics, is the United Kingdom's number 1 supplement for the skin, hair and nails, notes the company's website. Perfectil vitamin supplements are also gaining popularity in the United States. The Perfectil line offers three products: Perfectil, Perfectil Plus and Perfectil Platinum. Consult with a health care professional if you are interested in taking Perfectil vitamins to enhance your appearance.
The active ingredients in Perfectil include vitamin E, vitamin D, vitamin C, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12, riboflavin, thiamin, niacin, biotin, pantothenic acid, iron, iodine, copper, manganese and chromium, selenium, cystine, natural mixed carotenoids and grape seed acid, boron, silicon and vanadium. These ingredients are intended to work together to nourish the skin, scalp and nails. Inactive ingredients are also included to ease in the manufacturing process or to make taking the vitamins easier or more appealing. Mycrocrystalline cellulose provides bulk to the tablet, while hydroxypropyl methylcellulose creates the tablet’s coating. Silicon dioxide prevents the ingredients from caking together. Other inactive ingredients include dicalcium phosphate, cross-linked sodium carboxymethylcellulose, stearic acid, hydroxypropyl cellulose, natural colorings and magnesium stearate.
