Ascorbic Acid 2-Glucoside(AA2G™) was originally developed as a quasi-drug cosmetic product in Japan to lighten the overall tone of the skin and reduce the pigmentation in age spots and freckles. Further research has shown other dramatic benefits and today AA2G™ is used all over the world – not only for whitening but also for brightening dull looking skin, reversing the effects of aging, and in sunscreen products for protection.

Function and Usage:
1)Ascorbic Acid 2-Glucoside(AA2G™) is natural vitamin C (ascorbic acid) stabilized with glucose. This combination allows the benefits of vitamin C to be conveniently and effectively used in cosmetic products. When creams and lotions containing Ascorbic Acid 2-Glucoside(AA2G™) are applied to the skin, an enzyme present in the skin, a-glucosidase, acts on the Ascorbic Acid 2-Glucoside(AA2G™) to slowly release the healthful benefits of vitamin C.
2)Ascorbic Acid 2-Glucoside(AA2G™) has glucose bound to the hydroxyl group of the second carbon (C2) of the ascorbic acid. The C2 hydroxyl group is the primary site of natural vitamin C’s beneficial activity; however, this is the site where vitamin C is degraded. The glucose protects vitamin C from high temperatures, pH, metal ions and other mechanisms of degradation.
