Amitose HGA, "Lightening Vitamin C", is a novel moisturizing vitamin C derivative produced by binding vitamin C (ascorbic acid) to glycerin using Seiwa's original technology. In addition to its excellent skin-moisturizing effect, Amitose HGA imparts an excellent skin lightening effect because of its world's first mechanism. Our R&D team revealed that it surppresses melanin transport and then melanin is degradeded by autophagy. It can be blended into skin toners, transparent gel-serums, and emulsions such as creams, thus allowing it to be used in a wide range of formulae. This product is preservative free.
