AA2G™ Suppress Skin Damage by UVA

We have knowledge that our Ascorbyl Glucoside (AA2G™) can inhibit UVB-induced cell damage. Moreover, our recent study demonstrates that AA2G™ is effective against skin damage caused by UVA with positive results.

The study indicated that AA2G™ can prevent collagen from being polymerized and denatured induced by UVA. Results also shows that AA2G™ significantly suppressed the damage of NHEK cell caused by UVA, of which other Vitamin C derivatives is not able to demonstrate the same result.

AA2G™ is a time-released stabilized Vitamin C derivative produced from ascorbic acid and starch using enzymatic technology developed by Hayashibara / NAGASE. AA2G™ is Ecocert COSMOS, Halal certified, as well as China Compliant.
