Ascorbic Acid is as a powerful antioxidant.
Sadly its true that in most cases only a few of the extravagant sounding ingredients in your skincare product actually adds meaningful benefit to your skin, one of those ingredients is Ascorbic Acid.
A decent moisturising cream is really helpful in terms of managing dry skin, however the amount it benefits you is usually what is says on the packaging and as much as I hate to say it some to these ingredients have little to no effect in terms of what they claim they can do. In any case, there are a couple of things that do have some genuine benefit for your skin, and one of them is vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid).
Vitamin C’s INCI name is Ascorbic Acid and this is the name under which it shows up on most ingredients list. It is an astounding material fin more ways than one. As a formulator I am frequently shocked at how dissolvable it is and many of my Lab rat friends will agree with me. It disintegrates in less than its own weight in water.
It has a wide range of advantages in the dietary market and a plethora of books has been written about it. On the skin its primary use is as a powerful antioxidant. There are great hypothetical reasons that lead us to believe that antioxidants applied directly on to the skin may reduce the appearance and signs of ageing.
Be that as it may, antioxidants can repress or even invert the production of melanin although not as effective as other skin lighting agent vitamin C is unquestionably after than most (hydroquinone for example). In the event that you need to even your skin tone something like ascorbic acid is your best option.
With all that said, there lies a small issue. Ascorbic Acid is quite volatile and far from stable. The ascorbic tends to react with oxygen more quickly than the molecules around them.
This implies that while it is sufficiently simple to add ascorbic acid to a formulation, the vast majority of it is not going to effective by the time it reaches the end user. We have an advantageous material that does what wonders, however it is truly difficult to customer in order for it to work. (However, we are working on something inventive to address this)
