Amitose MGA

SEIWA KASEI CO., LTD. makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Amitose MGA, "Emulsifying Vitamin C", is a novel stable Vitamin C derivative produced by binding Vitamin C (ascrobic acid), glycerin and an alkyl group together using SEIWA KASEI's original technology. Amitose MGA provides skin moisture and inhibits melanin production far more effectively than most ascorbic acid derivatives. Most particularly, Amitose MGA is amphilic and non-ionic and thus has oil-in-water emulsifying properties. It can be used in emulsions, gels and creams and remains stable over time. It also allows formulators to decrease or even remove the amount of surfactant used in the emulsion formulae. Lastly, Amitose MGA demonstrates anti-bacterial properties, a unique characteristic for a vitamin C derivative. This product is preservative free. It is developed and manufactured in Japan by SEIWA KASEI.
