Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has multiple functions in the human body, but it is relatively unstable and easily oxidized in aqueous solutions, which is followed by rapid degradation. AA2G™ is a vitamin C derivative synthesized from vitamin C and starch by the use of enzymes. In AA2G™ vitamin C is stabilized with glucose. When used in skin cream, AA2G™ delivers healthier and younger looking skin over a prolonged period by the activation properties of natural enzymes in the skin.
AA2G™ is gradually converted into active vitamin C in the skin, so it has a greater sustained effect than conventional vitamin C. Its application in skincare products, in addition to its use as a brightening agent, is primarily in moisturizing and sunscreen products for everyday use.
