Ascorbyl Palmitate - Vitamin C Ester
What is Ascorbyl Palmitate?
Ascorbyl Palmitate is the oil soluble form of Vitamin C, also known as Vitamin C Ester, which is formed by combining Vitamin C with Palmitic acid. It is much more stable than the water soluble form of Vitamin C. For that reason it can be used freely in formulation without the worry of oxidation in your formulation. There are many benefits to using Ascorbyl Palmitate instead of L-Ascorbic Acid in your formulation.
Ascorbyl Palmitate is one of the most stable forms of vitamin C to use in formulation. It is heat stable and lasts a very long time. Unlike standard L-Ascorbic Acid, it is readily absorbed by the skin where it can combat the free radicals that cause premature aging. Oil soluble solutions containing Ascorbyl Palmitate penetrate the skin much better and are delivered into the tissues where it can work more effectively.
Ascorbyl Palmitate is used to stimulate the production of collagen, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and eliminate blotches and blemishes on the skin.
