The Virtues of Vitamin C Ester


Vitamin C ester is a non-irritating form of vitamin C, which is a well-known and highly regarded antioxidant with superior anti-inflammatory properties.  My findings in studies examining the effects of ascorbyl palmitate (vitamin C ester) on aging skin have been dramatic.  When increased levels of this fat-soluble form of vitamin C are in the dermis, levels of both collagen and elastin increase.  This facilitates a more youthful appearance by helping to reverse the thinning of skin seen both in the natural aging process and as a result of sun damage.  Vitamin C ester is highly stable (unlike ascorbic acid, the unstable, irritating, and water-soluble form of vitamin C) and will maintain its efficacy over long periods of time.  Its fat-solubility allows it to rapidly and easily penetrate the skin to deliver the therapeutic levels of vitamin C needed to enable the fibroblasts, which are the cells that make connective tissue, to produce collagen and elastin.  These collagen- and elastin- stimulating effects are magnified even more when vitamin C ester is added to formulations containing DMAE.  Benefits from this powerful antioxidant can be delivers through  Vitamin C ester topicals and supplements.
