Ascorbyl glucoside

100% natural certification

Ascorbyl Glucoside can dramatically reduce the free radicals that result from UV irradiation of the skin, and significantly reduce cell damage and photo-aging.

It also promotes collagen synthesis. Collagen is a protein that plays an important role in the structure and firmness of the skin, which means it is highly beneficial for improving wrinkles and any roughness.

Ascorbyl Glucoside is produced from vitamin C and starch by using a natural enzyme, which results in binding glucose to the hydroxyl group of the same reactive carbon of the ascorbic acid.

Creams containing this remarkable substance are highly beneficial for improving wrinkles and roughness of skin.

An enzyme releases vitamin C at the cellular surface and provides benefits over a sustained period of time. Ascorbyl Glucoside is hydrolyzed by glucosidase, an enzyme present in the membrane of skin cells. This process releases vitamin C in its natural active form. When vitamin C enters cells it results in significant well-documented biological responses. It has been demonstrated to be hydrolyzed over a prolonged period giving its beneficial physiological effects to the cells and tissues in a constant and sustained manner.

When Ascorbyl Glucoside is converted to vitamin C and enters the 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 L-Dopa
  • can significantly lighten existing black melanin by a reduction reaction
  • can dramatically reduce the free radicals that result from UV irradiation of the skin, and significantly reduce cell damage
  • promotes collagen synthesis of skin fibroblasts. Collagen is a protein that plays an important role in the structure and firmness of skin. Ascorbyl Glucoside maintains its effects for a sustained period of time, resulting in increasing benefits
