Make Way for L-Ascorbic Acid: The New Vitamin C Game Changer

Make Way for L-Ascorbic Acid: The New Vitamin C Game Changer

It goes without saying that Vitamin C stands legendary in the skincare world. For some, in fact, their skincare regime is incomplete without Vitamin C and rightfully so! It is an excellent antioxidant that gets you even-toned & glowing skin. 

While vitamin C is one of the most popular skincare ingredients, have you tried L-Ascorbic Acid (a form of Vitamin C), for your skin? If not, here's why you should add it right away because you are missing out on a lot of things.

Decoding L-Ascorbic Acid- the glow bomb for your skin

As much as the term L-Ascorbic acid might sound intimidating & somewhat confusing, the reality holds a different story for you. It is, in fact, the purest form of Vitamin C that exists out there,  making it the most biologically active & beneficial for the skin.

L-Ascorbic acid is a potent yet gentle form of vitamin C, naturally found in oranges, broccoli, leafy greens, grapefruit, and peppers. What's more? Owing to its unmatched potency, it is the most preferred form of Vitamin C found in dermatological and topical skincare products. 

But what makes this the Holy Grail Vitamin C for your skin? Dropping the deets here!  

✔️Skincare products with L-Ascorbic Acid penetrate deeper into the skin tissues and treat skin concerns like dark spots, hyperpigmentation, dullness & signs of ageing from within. 

✔️It is more active in collagen production, which in turn, boosts skin firmness.

✔️As a skin rejuvenating ingredient, Vitamin C also protects from sun damage & repairs photo-damage caused by harmful UVB rays.

✔️With a concentration of 5-20% skincare products backed by lower pH levels, it causes zero skin irritation, even for sensitive skin types. 

✔️An all skin BFF, L-Ascorbic Acid skincare products are great for oily, dry and combination skin.

Wondering What’s the Right % of L-Ascorbic Acid in Skincare? Here it is! 

As mentioned earlier, the potency or effectiveness of L-ascorbic acid makes it the most preferred form of vitamin C in skincare products. However, experts & studies have suggested that the optimal concentration of L-ascorbic acid in skincare products should be within 10-20%. Anything greater than that does not increase the potency of the active and, conversely, may also cause skin irritation. 

How Stable is L-Ascorbic Acid?

It must be noted that L-Ascorbic acid is one of the most important water-soluble vitamins. However, in its most natural form, L-ascorbic acid is a highly unstable ingredient that can have difficulty penetrating the skin. Therefore, to stabilise it & improve penetration power into the skin, the formulation of L-Ascorbic Acid must be at a pH that is below 4.2. Also, a skincare product with L-Ascorbic Acid must be formulated with Ferulic Acid or Vitamin E to increase its stability & make it effective against chronic photodamage of the skin. 

It must be remembered that when L-Ascorbic Acid is exposed to heat, light and air, it oxides faster and loses its potency over time. Therefore, skin care products with this form of Vitamin C should be kept away from direct light, air and heat to maintain its effectiveness for a longer period.
