3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid (former INCI: Ethyl Ascorbyl Ether) is a white crystalline powder, an ethered derivative of ascorbic acid, the most excellent derivative of Vitamin C so far.
Vitamin C and derivatives
Ascorbic Acid Polypeptide is a vitamin C peptide complex also known under the trade name Vitazyme® C. Compared with a synthetic vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), which is unstable in preparations, it has good stability in water solutions and other aqueous systems.
Vitamin C, chemically known as l-ascorbic acid, has been valued for centuries due to its incredible ability to prevent disease (such as scurvy), and for its important role in many biological functions.
Ascorbyl Dipalmitate is a white crystalline powder, an oil-soluble and stable Vitamin C derivative. It is a diester of L-ascorbic and palmitic acids, also known under the trade name Nikkol CP.
Ascorbyl Isostearate is a stable oil-soluble Vitamin C derivative, an ester of l-Ascorbic and Isostearic acids. Incorporated in oil-based skin care applications, it exhibits all the beneficial effects of water-soluble Vitamin C on the skin.
Ascorbyl Lactoside is a Vitamin C derivative with adequate stability, safety, and whitening performance. Structurally, it is close to Ascorbyl Glucoside and suitable for skincare applications. It is known under the trade name Everwhite™ VCL.
Ascorbyl Linoleate is an ester of Ascorbic and Linoleic acids, a vitamin C oil-soluble derivative obtained by a biotechnological process using a lipase-catalyzed synthesis. It is used in food, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetic applications.
Ascorbyl Methylsilanol Pectinate is a stable water-soluble Vitamin C derivative, an Ascorbic acid conjugate with Silanetriol and Pectin. It is known under the trade name Ascorbosilane C and developed by Exsymol.
Ascorbyl Stearate is a stable oil-soluble Vitamin C derivative, a monoester of l-Ascorbic and stearic acids. It is mainly used in the food industry and is an edible antioxidant.
Ascorbyl Tocopheryl Maleate is a diester of Maleic acid with Vitamin C and E (l-Ascorbic acid and α-Tocopherol) used in personal care applications and the pharmaceutical industry, with properties intrinsic to both vitamins.
Disodium Ascorbyl Sulfate is a sodium salt of a monoester of ascorbic and sulfuric acids, a stable Vitamin C derivative known under the trade name Nikkol VC-SS.
Nano LPD's Lightening is a Sodium ascorbyl phosphate encapsulated with nano-lipids sized less than 250nm in diameter. Capsules are mainly made of natural phospholipids that are structural analogs of the cellular membranes.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is the tetra-ester of l-ascorbic acid and 2-hexadecenoic acid, which means that Vitamin C conjugated (esterized) with four lipophilic parts of the 2-hexadecenoic version of isopalmitic acid (an isomer of palmitic acid), which makes it very stable in formulations and give
