L-Ascorbic Acid , commonly known as vitamin C , is a very popular active ingredient in cosmetology due to its multiple benefits for the skin.
ANTI-OXIDANT ACTION : It protects the skin against free radicals and environmental damage, thus reducing the signs of aging.
LIGHTENING ACTION: It reduces brown spots and evens out skin tone.
STIMULATION OF COLLAGEN: It promotes the production of collagen, an essential protein to maintain the firmness, elasticity and youthfulness of the skin.
ANTI-AGING ACTION: By stimulating collagen synthesis, it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and improve skin texture.
L-Ascorbic Acid must be formulated at an acidic pH of 3.5 to 4% maximum to be preserved effectively.
