Unlike pure vitamin C (ascorbic acid), which can be unstable and prone to oxidation, ascorbyl glucoside is more stable. This means it has a longer shelf life and is less likely to degrade when exposed to air or light, ensuring its efficacy in skincare products.

Like pure vitamin C, ascorbyl glucoside is an antioxidant, which means it helps neutralise free radicals generated by UV radiation and environmental pollutants. This property helps protect the skin from oxidative stress, which can lead to premature aging and skin damage.

Ascorbyl glucoside can help brighten the skin by inhibiting melanin production. This can lead to a more even skin tone and reduction in the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

It can help to promote collagen synthesis, which is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. Collagen production tends to decrease with age, contributing to the development of wrinkles and sagging skin. By boosting collagen synthesis, ascorbyl glucoside can help mitigate these effects.

Ascorbyl glucoside is less irritating to the skin compared to some other forms of vitamin C, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin. It can still deliver the benefits of vitamin C without causing irritation or redness.

Ascorbyl glucoside is compatible with a wide range of skincare ingredients, including other antioxidants. This makes it versatile and easy to incorporate into various skincare formulations.

Overall, ascorbyl glucoside is a versatile and effective ingredient in skincare products, offering antioxidant protection, brightening effects, and support for collagen production, all while being gentle on the skin and stable in formulation.
