Ascorbyl Glucoside (AA2G) is a derivative of Vitamin C that has been combined with glucose to make it more stable and potent. It enables the antioxidants within Vitamin C to reach skin cells where they can protect them against damaging free radicals and UV rays which cause premature ageing.
It also helps to brighten skin leaving it looking youthful, radiant and revived. AA2G is capable of delivering healthy benefits of ascorbic acid to the skin over a prolonged period as it is slowly converted into active Vitamin C.
AA2G can lighten the overall tone of skin and reduce pigmentation in age spots and freckles. It can inhibit the production of melanin helping to treat hyperpigmentation and dark spots and giving skin an even tone which has been proven to give the appearance of a more youthful and healthy complexion. AA2G also supports the production of collagen which maintains the elasticity of skin making it appear tighter and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
