Vitamin C and derivatives

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.

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.

Vitamin C Glucoside knew as Ascorbyl-2-Glucoside is a derivative of ascorbic acid combined with glucose. It is a flawless form of vitamin C that showcases all the outstanding benefits of the vitamin for skin well-being.

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 palmitate is the ester of L-ascorbic and palmitic acids. It's a fat- and water-soluble (amphipathic) antioxidant that has an increased shelf life thus used in many formulations.

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.

Like other forms of Vitamin C, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate helps prevent cellular aging by inhibiting the cross-linking of collagen, oxidation of proteins, and lipid peroxidation.

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.

Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (MAP) is an esterified derivative of Vitamin C. Unlike L-ascorbic acid, which is lipophobic (only water-soluble), has low pH, and unstable, MAP is lipophilic forms of vitamin C, which is stable at neutral pH.

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.

Compared with pure L-Ascorbic acid, Sodium Ascorbate has better bioavailability thanks to the presence of Na+ cation.
This particular Vitamin C derivative can be used to stimulate collagen repair thus diminishing some of the effects of photo aging. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is also capable of replenishing Vitamin E’s antioxidant capacity.

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

Vitamin C also known as L-Ascorbic acid plays a crucial role in human skin. It performs a large number of duties to ensure the radiance, firmness, and youthful look of the skin.
