Ascorbyl Palmitate

Product Name:Ascorbyl Palmitate

Product Code:YNR-VCAT

CAS No.:137-66-6

Ascorbyl Palmitate is the oil soluble form of Vitamin C also known as Vitamin C Ester, facilitated by bonding with palmitic acid. Because it is oil soluble, and nonacid, it is much more stable than the water soluble form of Vitamin C, L Ascorbic Acid. For that reason it can be used freely in formulation without the oxidation that turns your products brown. The oxidation of the vitamin L Ascorbic Acid is the same oxidation that turns copper green, apples brown and metal to rust.  Ascorbyl Palmitate is one of the most stable forms of vitamin C to use in formulation though the most stable form would the encapsulated form.

Ascorbyl Palmitate is readily absorbed by the skin where it can combat the free radicals that lead to unhealthy aging skin. Because Ascorbyl Palmitate is oil soluble it is readily absorbed, getting into the tissues to deliver the multiple benefits of vitamin C . the production of collagen, the prevention of wrinkles, and the elimination of the blotchiness that gives the skin an aged appearance.

Ascorbyl Palmitate is commonly used in the food industry as a natural preservative for oils, vitamins and colors. Ascorbyl Palmitate also serves to regenerate Vitamin E creating a synergy of anti-oxidant activity. The perfect choice for all of your preservative free oils, balms and salves.
