Ascorbyl Glucoside Stable Vitamin C – AA2G
Lightens skin & Suppresses melanin synthesis:
When AA-2G is converted to vitamin C and enters skin cells, it significantly reduces the production of melanin by inhibiting tyrosinase activity. This results in a reduction of dopaquinone, an intermediate of melanin synthesis. Additionally it converts existing dopaquinone to dopa. When AA-2G is converted to vitamin C and enters skin cells, it can significantly lighten existing black
melanin by a reduction reaction.
Another application of AA-2G in cosmetics is control of skin pigmentation. Due to its antioxidant properties, this compound reduces the rate of melanin synthesis, thus preventing skin darkening after UV exposure.$45.99 – $367.99$45.99 – $367.99

- Pure Vitamin C is known as L-Ascorbic Acid. The “L” in front of Ascorbic is a reference to how the molecule itself rotates to light and refers to its source. L-Ascorbic Acid comes from natural sources such as oranges.
- L-Ascorbic Acid products penetrate the skin tissue and are more active in collagen production. This, in turn, increases firmness in the skin.
