Stabilized time-released Vitamin C
Protects against UV-induced damage
Brightens and evens skin tone
|A stabilized and long-lasting Vitamin C,which features multiple daily and special skin care benefits, including skin brightening
|AA2G™ is a stabilized Vitamin C derivative — L-Ascorbic Acid 2-Glucoside —synthesized from Vitamin C and starch* through enzymatic technology developed by Hayashibara. L-Ascorbic Acid 2-Glucoside is the main component of AA2G™ . It has the same bioactive functionality in the body as Vitamin C, because it is into Vitamin C and glucose by α -glucosidase —an enzyme naturally existing in cell membranes of the body and skin.
|AA2G™ is metabolized more gradually in the skin than other Vitamin C derivatives, providing sustained physiological effects. In the commercialization process, AA2G™ has superior formulation stability as a raw material, whereas Vitamin C is known to have disadvantages in the storage and production of cosmetics, such as discoloration and degradation. Used worldwide as a cosmetic ingredient for many years, the distinctive characteristics of AA2G™ allow for the fullest use of Vitamin C’s bioactive functionality in skin brightening, promotion of collagen synthesis, antioxidant effects and other skin care needs.

|Structural formula of
L-Ascorbic Acid 2-Glucoside
One glucose molecule is bound to the reaction site, 2'
hydroxyl group of Vitamin C, to improve stability.
|Formulation stability of AA2G™
AA2G™ is resistant to discoloration during production and storage
of cosmetic products compared to other Vitamin C derivatives.
