Benefits of using L-Ascorbic Acid on the skin

Posted February 20, 2024

L-Ascorbic Acid is a form of vitamin C that is biologically active and potent for the skin. It is an antioxidant that can help fight free radicals, prevent sun damage, and improve the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and acne. Some of the specific benefits of L-Ascorbic Acid are:

• It helps to maintain skin barrier integrity, which protects the skin from dehydration and environmental stressors

• It stimulates collagen production, which increases firmness and elasticity in the skin

• It aids wound healing and reduces inflammation, which can help with acne and other skin conditions

• It inhibits melanin synthesis, which reduces hyperpigmentation and evens out skin tone

• It brightens skin complexion and enhances radiance


L-Ascorbic Acid is a powerful ingredient that can improve the health and appearance of your skin. However, it is also unstable and prone to degradation when exposed to air, light, heat, and water. Therefore, it is important to choose a product that has a stable and effective formulation of L-Ascorbic Acid. Some factors to look for are:

• The concentration of L-Ascorbic Acid should be between 10% to 20%, as this range has been shown to be effective in clinical trials

• The product should be packaged in a dark, air-tight, and opaque container, as this prevents oxidation and degradation of L-Ascorbic Acid

• The product should contain other ingredients that can boost the efficacy and stability of L-Ascorbic Acid, such as ferulic acid, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, and peptides

One of our bestselling products is our C15 Serum, which has 15% L-Ascorbic Acid in a hyaluronic acid base.
