What is 3-0-Ethyl Asocorbic Acid?

Posted on by Ersin Koseoglu

3-0-Ethyl Asocorbic Acid is the most perfect L-Ascorbic Acid derivative ever developed. It is ultra stable.

It has the same molecular weight as L-Ascorbic Acid. Its effects on the skin are the same as L-Ascorbic Acid. It enters the cell using the same door as L-Ascorbic Acid and is metabolized like L-Ascorbic Acid. It is as good a free radical scavenger as L-Ascorbic Acid.

3-0-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid plus has a unique structure that is both lipophilic (fat-soluble) and hydrophilic (water-soluble). Thanks to this special and unique structure, it is absorbed very quickly from the skin surface and easily passes into the dermis layer of the skin.

L-Ascorbic Acid is only soluble in water, so its access to the dermis layer is very limited, almost non-existent.

3-0-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is absorbed very quickly and easily by the skin with its ultra-stable, lipophilic and hydrophilic structure. Since it can progress both in water and oil, it easily transitions to the dermal layer and works in this layer. It repairs damaged cells in the deep layers of the skin and prevents the formation of spots by suppressing melanin synthesis.

Thanks to its rapid absorption and ultra-stable structure, its positive effects on the skin begin to be seen very quickly.

Effects on the skin

  • It stops melanin synthesis by inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase enzyme. It prevents the formation of stains.
  • Accelerates collagen synthesis. A more elastic and brighter skin is obtained.
  • It is a very powerful antioxidant. It captures and neutralizes free radicals.
  • It is anti-inflammatory. It prevents post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that occurs after acne.

It gets along very well with almost all active molecules, especially actives such as retinol, niacinamide, azelaic acid. It can be used together with other actives.

It is safe during pregnancy and lactation. It is recommended to be used especially during these periods to prevent pregnancy spots.

It is suitable for use in summer. It can be used in the morning or evening. Then moisturizer should be applied. It is recommended to use sunscreen during the day.
