O-ethyl ascorbic acid is the most stable derivative of Ascorbic Acid (AA) known so far.
As an ethyl ether derivative, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid (EAA) presents higher lipophilicity, increasing bioavailability and improving eﬃcacy compared to free ascorbic acid.
|In contrast to free AA, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid freely penetrates into skin, where it is further metabolized to Ascorbic Acid, ensuring a remarkable higher bioavailability and a consequent higher concentration in deeper skin target sites.
3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid presents an outstanding stability in all kind of cosmetic formulations, without any color change at pH 3.0-6.0.
|• Inhibits Tyrosinase activity, preventing melanin synthesis.
• Improves skin complexion and enhances its elasticity.
• Outstanding antioxidant performance.
• Accelerates and improves collagen production.
|• Free radical scavenger. Protects skin from environmental and intrinsic stress factors.
• Reduces inflammation and inhibits the formation of edema.
• Excellent stability to light, heat, acid, alkali, salt and oxygen.
|INCI Name (US):||Ethyl Ascorbic Acid|
|INCI Name (EU):||Ethyl Ascorbic Acid|
||Whitening products: cream, lotion, gel, essence, mask, etc.
Anti-wrinkle products: improve the synthesis of collagen
Antioxidation products: eliminate free radical
Anti-inﬂammation product: inhibit edema.
||VCE can easily be incorporated in cosmetic
emulsion and other formulations. It is water soluble. The
recommended pH range is 5.0 - 6.0. (Stable at 3,0 – 6,0).
For better stability and to avoid pH-drift to acidic
pH-values the use of 1 % citrate buﬀer is recommended.
