Vitamin C ethyl ether is a very useful vitamin C derivative, it is not only very stable in chemical substances, it is a non-discoloring vitamin C derivative, but also a lipophilic and hydrophilic amphoteric substance, which greatly expands his The applicable range of Chemicalbook, especially in the application of daily chemistry. 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid ether can easily enter the dermis through the stratum corneum. After it enters the body, it is very easy to be decomposed by biological enzymes in the body to exert the biological effect of vitamin C.

Vitamin C ethyl ether (VC ethyl ether) is a lipophilic and hydrophilic amphoteric vitamin C derivative, which not only retains the redox effect of vitamin C but also is very stable. It is a lipophilic and hydrophilic amphoteric substance, which not only makes it extremely convenient to use in the formula, but also makes it easy to penetrate the stratum corneum and enter the dermis layer. After entering the skin, it is easily decomposed by biological enzymes to play the role of vitamin C, thereby improving the its bioavailability.


VC ethyl ether penetrates the stratum corneum directly to the basal melanocytes, inhibits the activity of tyrosinase, inhibits the formation of melanin, and reduces melanin to colorless, thereby effectively whitening the skin. And VC ethyl ether can directly participate in the synthesis of collagen after entering the dermis to repair the activity of skin cells, increase collagen, and make the skin full and elastic, making the skin delicate and smooth. 3-O-ethyl-L-ascorbic acid may be a useful stabilizer for p-hydroxyacetophenone solutions.
