Description
Acorbyl glucoside (AA2G) is an excellent derivative of VC, which has the effect of inhibiting melanin. The structure of acorbyl glucoside (AA2G) is that the hydroxyl hydrogen atom of the active site of ascorbic acid (hydroxyl group with reductive property) is replaced by glucosyl group. Because the hydroxyl group on the active site of VC molecule is shielded by glucose, acorbyl glucoside (AA2G) is non reducing and more stable than VC under oxidation conditions. The results show that acorbyl glucoside (AA2G) not only overcomes the disadvantage that VC is easily oxidized and unstable, but also has excellent stability in the presence of heat, oxygen and metal ions, and retains the normal activity of VC.

The main effects of acorbyl glucoside (AA2G) were as follows:
1. Inhibit the formation of melanin;
2. Reduction of formed melanin (light spot);
3. Prevention of skin damage caused by ultraviolet rays (erythema and pigmentation);
4. Inhibit lipid peroxidation (scavenging oxygen free radicals) induced by ultraviolet irradiation;
5. Whitening effect (antioxidation, inhibition of tyrosinase activity);
6. Maintain skin elasticity (promote collagen synthesis);
7. Prevent skin inflammation and photoaging (scavenging hydroxyl radicals).

There are numerous products containing acorbyl glucoside (AA2G) on the market, such as Shiseido, Lancome, L'Oreal, Avon, Johnson & Johnson, DHC, Kose, etc.

Acorbyl glucoside (AA2G) is mainly used in whitening, freckle removing, spot lightening and sunscreen products, as well as in anti-aging products.
