VitaC Stable (AAP)

VitaC Stable (AAP)
VitaC Stable (AAP) is a new, stable, water-soluble, vitamin C derivative known as Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate (AAP).

Numerous studies have documented the effectiveness of l-ascorbic acid as both an antioxidant and anti-aging ingredient for skin care. Unfortunately l-ascorbic acid is not stable and will oxidize very quickly – within hours - once put into solution. The oxidation of l-Ascorbic Acid can actually be detrimental to skin health. This makes l-ascorbic acid a poor choice for most skin care products.

When compared to l-ascorbic acid and other vitamin C derivatives, VitaC Stable (AAP) demonstrated superior benefits for skin care. VitaC Stable (AAP) serves as an excellent antioxidant, helps to promote the biosynthesis of collagen, and also helps to lighten/brighten skin by *inhibiting the production of melanin which causes hyperpigmentation or age spots.

Studies have demonstrated a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and hyperpigmentation after as little as two months. VitaC Stable (AAP) is non-irritating and non-toxic when used as directed (0.1% - 1.0%). VitaC Stable (AAP) is an off-white powder that is easily soluble in water and very stable over time. This superior stability along with superb functionality, makes VitaC Stable (AAP) one of the most important anti-aging active ingredients.

Functionality:
● Very Stable: a 1% solution at 50C for 30 days shows no discoloration. Use of disodium EDTA or tetrasodium EDTA can offer extra protection against oxidation.
● Excellent skin penetration when compared to L ascorbic acid.
● Effective in reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
● Promotes biosynthesis of collagen
● Useful in lightening/brightening skin
● Non irritating and non toxic
● Easy to use

*Melanin helps protect our skin from UVA/UVB rays. By inhibiting the production of melanin our skin is more vulnerable to the damaging effects of the sun. We recommend UVA/UVB protection (sunscreen) as an important part of every effective antiaging regimen. This is particularly important with topical application of products that inhibit melanin production.
