Vitamin formulas for healthy hair, skin, and nails contain many of the same nutrients that your entire body needs for growth and maintenance of cells such as Biotin, the B vitamins, Vitamin D, Zinc, Vitamin C & E, and essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6). These vitamins also support the production of keratin which is the essential building block for your skin, hair and nails.
