VCE is a white crystal or crystalline powder, odorless or with a unique odor consisting of acetaldehyde and vitamin C (characteristic of the material). 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid ether replaces the third hydroxyl group of vitamin C with an ethoxy group, which is much more stable than vitamin C. The molar activity of VCE is similar to that of vitamin C.

Application of Vitamin C ethyl ether:

Vitamin C ethyl ether is the best vitamin C derivative so far, it is not only very stable in chemical properties, it is a non-discoloring vitamin C derivative in the true sense, and it is easily decomposed by biological enzymes after it enters the skin And support its role of vitamin C. Vitamin C ethyl ether is a lipophilic and hydrophilic substance, which not only makes it extremely convenient to use in formulations, but more importantly, makes it easier to penetrate the stratum corneum into the dermis, making its antioxidant function better than other vitamin C. Derivatives are strong, and the whitening effect is better than vitamin C and its derivatives. On the one hand, its whitening effect is to block the production of melanin by inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase; on the other hand, it can directly reduce oxidized melanin to light color. Give full play to the biological role of vitamin C. Pure vitamin C, on the other hand, is difficult to absorb into the skin.

1. By inhibiting the activity of Cu2+ acting on tyrosinase, blocking the formation of melanin;

2. Effective whitening and freckle removal (when 2% is added);

3. Anti-inflammation caused by sunlight, has strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect;

4. Improve dull skin and give skin elasticity;

5. Repair skin cells and promote collagen production.

Therefore, in whitening and freckle removal products, anti-aging products, lotions, gels, essences, lotions, skin creams, etc.

Used in cosmetics. It is best to use it under the condition of PH3.0-6.0. Usage amount: 0.5-3%
