L-Ascorbic Acid

Pure Vitamin C is known as L-Ascorbic Acid. The “L” in front of Ascorbic is a reference to how the molecule itself rotates to light and refers to its source. L-Ascorbic Acid comes from natural sources such as oranges.

L-Ascorbic Acid found in topical skincare products carries a concentration between 5 percent to 15 percent.  A higher concentration can irritate the skin. L-Ascorbic Acid with a concentration between 5 percent to 15 percent usually has a lower pH, making it a serum that's unsuitable for extremely sensitive skin types.

L-Ascorbic Acid products penetrate the skin tissue and are more active in collagen production. This, in turn, increases firmness in the skin. L-Ascorbic Acid is a rejuvenating vitamin ingredient that also plays a part in the reduction of photo-damage caused by harmful UVB rays. Because L-Ascorbic Acid plays a major role in anti-aging treatments, skin firmness, overall repair and brightening, it also serves to rejuvenate the skin.

Conditions such as aging skin, hyperpigmentation and post-inflammation hyperpigmentation benefit greatly from L-Ascorbic Acid skin care products. People with rosacea  and sensitive skin conditions should avoid this Vitamin C ingredient as it may cause irritation. Oily, dry and combination skin types can benefit greatly from L-Ascorbic Acid products.
