Vitamin C + E + Ferulic acid: enhancing stability and effectiveness of topical ascorbic acid
We're so happy to introduce you to our Ferulic Acip with MAP Serum! The Original MAP Serum - BetterComplexions products are often copied, but never matched! This wonderful and powerful (non-irritating) vitamin C product is very potent 15% strength (more effective than 20% of L-ascorbic) this is THREE TIMES as potent as most other MAP products on the market today! We use 100% Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate as the vitamin C source in this product, it is not a mix of MAP and other types of Vit C. Our MAP is non-irritating, Paraben free, and non-comedogenic. And when we say it's 15% - we mean it! The proof is in the results! It's silky smooth texture feels wonderful and glides over the skin easily. It absorbs quickly and completely, tightens pores as it dries, and leaves skin feeling clean and healthy (not sticky). It firms the skin, stimulates collagen, detoxifies cells, reverses sun damage, reduces uneven pigment and brightens your skin. It revives your skin and turns back the clock!! This is, hands down, my NEW favorite product!
Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is one of the relatively few topical agents whose effectiveness against wrinkles and fine lines is backed by a fair amount of reliable scientific evidence (see our article on vitamin C). Unfortunately, vitamin C is relatively unstable. When exposed to air, vitamin C solution undergoes oxidation and becomes not only ineffective but also potentially harmful (oxidized vitamin C may increase the formation of free radicals). A variety of approaches have been used to try to stabilize vitamin C in water solution. Unfortunately, there are no good studies comparing the effectiveness of different stabilization methods under the conditions of real life usage. In this article, we discuss a method where vitamin C is stabilized and potentiated by the addition of vitamin E and ferulic acid.
Vitamin E is a fat soluble antioxidant. In living systems, vitamins C and E can regenerate each other and thus potentiate each other's antioxidant effects. While the capacity of vitamin E to protect vitamin C from oxidation in a water solution is relatively modest, vitamin E enhances the antioxidant effects of vitamin C when they are co-applied to the skin. Therefore, even if some of the vitamin C in a product is degraded, the remainder works better in the presence of vitamin E. Studies indicate that the combination of vitamins C and E provide better protection from UV-induced damage than either vitamin alone. On the other hand, vitamin E appears to have little effect on the ability of vitamin C to stimulate the synthesis of collagen.
Ferulic acid is a naturally occurring phenolic compound found primarily in plant cell walls. It is a potent antioxidant and may have skin benefits even when used alone. However, skin care related studies of ferulic acid focused on its ability to enhance the effects of vitamins C and E. Preliminary research indicates that ferulic acid may improve the stability of Vitamin C in water solution. Also, the addition of ferulic acid to the combination of vitamins C and E appears to increase protection from UV-induced skin damage. In one study, the addition of ferulic acid to a vitamin C + vitamin E formula almost doubled the UV-protection benefits. Whether ferulic acid affects the ability of vitamin C to increase collagen synthesis is unclear.
While the combination of vitamin C, E and ferulic acid appears to have clear advantages over vitamin C alone, a number of limitations remain. First, even though combining vitamin C with vitamin E and ferulic acid makes it more stable, some degradation still occurs and may still be a significant factor depending on the usage and storage conditions. Second, vitamin C is acidic and may be irritating for people with sensitive skin, especially at relatively high concentrations required for stimulating collagen production. There are alternatives allowing to get at least some of the benefits of stable topical vitamin C while minimizing skin irritation. (See articles on vitamin C derivatives and anhydrous vitamin C.)
