UL Prospector


McKinley Resources Incorporated makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

L-Hexuron® is a superior Vitamin C derivative. It is very stable, and is easily converted to the active form by enzymes in the skin. The ethyl substituent forms an ether with the 3-hydroxy group of the ascorbic acid, which results in much higher stability. L-Hexuron® is amphiphilic, which makes it compatible in a broad array of emulsion systems and clear lotions.

L-Hexuron® is recommended especially for skin lightening and collagen stimulation. L-Hexuron® is found in anti-aging products, foundations, sunscreens, masks, facial moisturizers, and conditioners. The recommended usage of L-Hexuron® is 0.1% to 3.0%.
