What’s Ascorbyl glucoside?
Ascorbyl Glucoside is a form of Vitamin C used in skincare products, to be precise Ascorbyl Glucoside contains L-ascorbic acid and glucose. It is fat-soluble and breaks down in the skin into L-ascorbic acid and glucose. L-ascorbic acid is a pure vitamin C that comes from natural sources such as oranges. Since L-ascorbic acid is not stable and often breaks down when exposed to air and sunlight it is best to be paired with ferulic acid and an antioxidant which is the Ascorbyl Glucoside. Ascorbyl Glucoside. Ascorbyl glucoside is a derivative of L-ascorbic acid, vitamin C. But unlike regular vitamin C, which can sometimes irritate the skin, ascorbyl glucoside is much more gentle. was found to have greater stability in the presence of air, heat, light and pH levels.
Health Benefits of Ascorbyl glucoside
1. protect against free radical damage and repair the effects of UV exposure
Radiation from the sun, UVA and UVB, pollution, smoking and diet are environmental factors that can put the skin in a state of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress produces an imbalance in the levels of molecules called free radicals. According to studies Free radicals had been connected to the role of the ageing process that's why Vitamin C helps to reduce the effects of oxidative stress by neutralizing the free radical molecules and rebalancing their levels in the body.
2. Brighten skin by reducing melanin production
Hyperpigmentation sometimes comes from pregnancy or melasma, hormonal imbalance and sun damage, injury or inflammation. Melanin is responsible for providing skin color or pigment and uneven production of melanin results in hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C may reduce hyperpigmentation through inhibition of the enzyme responsible for producing melanin in the skin.
3. Increase collagen levels to improve skin elasticity
As we age, collagen production decreases. Vitamin C acts as a helper molecule in the body's natural collagen production process. Collagen is a protein responsible for skin elasticity and stretchiness.
