AA2G™ lightens aging and dark spots

New study demonstrates that our Ascorbyl Glucoside (AA2G™) can lighten aging and dark spots with positive results; 12 weeks in-vivo study shows that lotion containing AA2G™ significantly reduces hyperpigmentation from aging spots.

Additionally our studies indicated that AA2G™ can suppress melanin synthesis by inhibiting tyrosinase activity when entered into the skin cells whilst converting into Vitamin C. AA2G™ can also lighten pre-existing melanin pigments on the skin by reducing actions.

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.
