Vitamin C with Ester: The Perfect Match

Some things are meant to be together, like Forrest and Jenny who went together like peas and carrots.

When it comes to skincare, vitamin C goes with ester to make vitamin C ester, an effective skin treatment.

Read on to learn about this perfect match.


Vitamin C with Ester

Vitamin C ester isn’t vitamin C mixed with some “ester.” Rather, vitamin C ester occurs when vitamin C has been esterified to a saturated fatty acid, palmitic acid. This results in a fat-soluble form of vitamin C.

Vitamin C ester, or Ascorbyl palmitate, has antioxidant properties and helps boost collagen production. This is important since collagen is the principal structural protein that holds the skin together. As you age, collagen production decreases, and by the age of 60, all types of collagen are significantly below their once youthful levels.

Try Perricone for as little at $10.

  1. I’m 60. I read Dr. Christiane Northrup’s books and she highly recommends Dr. Perricone’s products. I’d like to continue to look as great as I feel and be a testimonial to good health and good care especially without a surgical face lift!
