INCI Name:

Ascorbyl Glucoside

AA2G™ is a stabilised ascorbic acid derivative produced from Vitamin C and starch by enzymatic technology developed by Hayashibara / NAGASE. This proprietary process results in a substance that has greatly improved solubility in water, while retaining the natural biologic functions of Vitamin C. When used in skin cream preparations, AA2G™ remains in its stable condition until it is applied on the skin, where it is activated by natural enzymes in the skin, delivering healthier and younger looking skin over a prolonged time period. It is also used as a skin-lightening, brightening and anti-wrinkle agent in daily moisturizing and sunscreen products to prevent photo-aging.
