SpecWhite™ VCE

SpecWhite VCE (3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid) is an ether derivative of ascorbic acid and is currently the most excellent derivative of ascorbic acid.  It has a very stable chemical structure. It is a colourless derivative of ascorbic acid, which can enter into the skin and is easily metabolized in the body. Its effect is better than pure ascorbic acid.

SpecWhite™ VCE is a unique lipophilic and hydrophilic material, easily used in cosmetic formulations. Its most important aspect is that 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid can easily enter into the dermis and have biological effects, which pure ascorbic acid cannot
