Amitose VC

Moisturizing vitamin C derivatives

Amitose VC series is a novel moisturizing vitamin C derivative produced by binding glycerin to vitamin C using our original technology.

Amitose VC series is developed by derivatization of the fragile vitamin C with glycerin in order to improve the stability against oxidation, and so now it is possible to be formulated it into cosmetics with confidence. Because Amitose VC series has an inhibitory effect on melanin production and a moisturizing effect, it is suitable for being applied to aging-care cosmetics. There are some products having additional unique effects such as antioxidant effect, enhancing effect on collagen production, oil-in-water emulsifying ability and antibacterial effect. It can be formulated into skin toner, gel serum, and emulsion such as skin cream, thus allowing it to be used in a wide range of formulations and dosage forms.

So it is suitable for being applied to gels and emulsions into which it was hard to blend ionic compound, and enables to develop various types of cosmetic formulations.

Verification

We tested stability of Amitose DGA by using transparent gel.
Change in viscosity of transparent gel with Amitose DGA and benchmark was measured. Relative change was calculated assuming the viscosity of control as 100%.
