Based on the "Health & Well-Being" concept, Nissan has developed a vitamin C filter that supplies moisture to the skin during air conditioner operation.

Vitamin C Filter

Retains skin's moisture
Vitamin C is essential for synthesis of collagen and elastin, which are necessary for healthy skin. Mixing vitamin C into the air conditioner air stream is intended to have a moisturizing effect by being available directly to the skin.

To mix vitamin C into the air conditioner's air stream, a ceramic additive in the filter releases vitamin C in the presence of moisture in the air. Zeolite (a moisture absorbent) is also added to provide a steady release of vitamin C in dry conditions such as winter when moisturization is particularly needed.

It is believed that direct epidermal supplementation of vitamin C, which is essential for synthesis of collagen and elastin, stimulates the metabolism to promote the supply of moisture from within the body.
