Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is one of the most widely used antioxidants for protecting the skin. Unfortunately, it is easily depleted when the skin is exposed to the sun, and by external stresses such as pollution and smoking. Maintaining adequate levels of Vitamin C is, therefore, important to help protect the skin against UV-induced free radical damage that is related to skin aging. To provide the maximum benefit from Vitamin C, it is recommended that a stable form of Vitamin C be used in personal care preparations. One such stable form of Vitamin C, known as Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate or PromaCare-SAP, maximizes the protective properties of Vitamin C by retaining its effectiveness over time. PromaCare-SAP, alone or together with Vitamin E, can provide an effective antioxidant combination that reduces the formation of free radicals and stimulates collagen synthesis (which slows down with aging). Additionally, PromaCare-SAP can help to improve the appearance of skin as it can lessen the appearance of photo-damage and age spots as well as protect hair color from UV degradation.

PromaCare-SAP is a stable form of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid). It is a sodium salt of the monophosphate ester of ascorbic acid (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate) and is supplied as a white powder.

The most important attributes of PromaCare-SAP are:

• Stable provitamin C of which bioconverts to Vitamin C in the skin

• In vivo antioxidant that is applicable to skin care, sun care and hair care products (not approved for oral care use in the US)

• Stimulates collagen production and is, therefore, an ideal active in anti-aging and skin firming products

•  Reduces melanin formation that is applicable in skin brightening and anti age-spot treatments (approved as a quasi-drug skin whitener in Japan at 3%)

• Has mild anti-bacterial activity and is, therefore, an ideal active in oral care, anti-acne and deodorant products
