Sun gel that is formulated with 15% of stabilized pure vitamin C, Blanc Vita, provides skin with a strong defense from UVA rays and includes antioxidants to shield skin.
Product - Description
Until now, there has been no sunscreen product formulated with vitamin C. Since vitamin C is vulnerable to water, air, and light, it was impossible to be infused into sunscreen formula. However, this sun gel is formulated with vitamin C that can be used under the sun without worrying about photo toxicity.
Protect skin from UVA rays and Blue light with SPF+/PA++++ and prevent skin irritation. Lightweight texture does not irritate skin and does not leave skin greasy.
Previously, vitamin C derivative had to be modified and altered into different substance to become stabilized. This modified substance has a low level of absorption. Though it is absorbed, the chances that vitamin C derivative converts into pure vitamin are so low that remaining derivative substances could be damaging to normal cells. However, Blanc Vita is stabilized by using porous substance that does not deform structure, color, and scent of vitamin C. Zeta potential is used to convert the electrical charge of vitamin C – from negative to positive. Adhesion and skin absorption is enhanced through diffusion.
What makes this product so special?
It protects skin against UV rays and sunlight where it creates oxygen free radicals and it provides antioxidant effect. No need to avoid exposure to light and air because the color and scent do not change. Without degrading vitamin C, it conveniently delivers efficacy of pure vitamin c to skin.
How does it relate to the story?
Since vitamin C is vulnerable to water, air, and light, it is almost impossible to be infuse into sunscreen product. Also, since vitamin C particle is negatively charged and when it is applied to equally negatively charged skin, the absorption of vitamin C is extremely low. We, Cosnine, have developed a way to preserve pure vitamin C to provide great sun protection and greater absorption rate of vitamin C.
Why the product/formulation is innovative?
“World’s first stabilized vitamin C sun care product”. It is very important to maintain the stability of vitamin C because products containing vitamin C have a high risk of photo toxicity. When the sun gel formulated with vitamin C that is stabilized by using porous substance is exposed at 50°C and daylight for 9 weeks, the discoloration and oxidation were minimized and the activity of 91% -97% of titer was maintained. When the FranzCells method is used in vitro testing, it showed that the stabilized vitamin C has a higher absorption rate than normal vitamin C. Vitamin C could be only infused into serums or ointment types due to its stability problem. Now, it can be formulated into fresh and lightweight sun gel as well.
