Ascorbyl glucoside is the result of the union of a sugar molecule (glucose) to a vitamin C molecule (ascorbic acid) by means of an enzymatic reaction, thus protecting the -OH group from oxidation. Obtained biotechnologically and accepted by Ecocert as a natural cosmetic ingredient. It is the most stable form of Vitamin C that does not oxidise in the light and thanks to its neutral pH it is suitable for sensitive skin that does not tolerate pure vitamin C.
It is a great antioxidant, resulting in brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin. This effect is related to vitamin C's ability to suppress melanin synthesis, increase collagen production and reduce oxidative stress. It is depigmenting, lightens overall skin tone and reduces hyperpigmentation in dark circles and age spots. Reduces post-solar oxidative damage and associated skin inflammation. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen synthesis by skin fibroblasts, increasing elasticity and suppleness.
