By now everyone's heard that cosmetics containing vitamin
C reduce sun damage and erase wrinkles. But what most people
don't know is that ordinary vitamin C disappears upon contact
with air, water, heat and light. Since cosmetics inevitably
encounter all of these elements, any vitamin C that was initially
present probably vanished before the jar was even opened!
The Inter-Cal Corporation developed Ester-C®
Topical to provide the personal care industry with a way of
fortifying any skin, lip, hair or sun care product with a stable
form of vitamin C that penetrates.
Topical has a shelf life of at least two years and retains superior
stability in oil/water emulsions typical of cosmetic formulations.
It is also non-acidic and free of chemical derivatives,
like ascorbyl palmitate or ascorbyl phosphates, and effectively
penetrates deep down into the skin's layers to help produce
collagen and other support structures.
Warning: Cosmetics containing ordinary vitamin C may
not be effective for skin maintenance and repair.
