FSS Bio-Chelate VC

Due to ardent marketing campaigns of the nutrition and beauty industries, consumers are well-aware of the powerful health benefits associated with vitamin C. Yet, enthusiastic patrons looking to enhance their own wellbeing are often unaware that vitamin C only imparts these exceptional benefits when it’s delivered to the skin or body as a stable material. Vitamin C becomes almost immediately instable when exposed to oxygen, causing the valuable constituents of the vitamin to be severely degraded. In order to overcome this issue, FSS Bio-Chelate VC was developed to stabilize the vitamin.

FSS Bio-Chelate VC ensures the skin protectant benefits are delivered to the skin by shielding vitamin c from succumbing to the oxidation process during formulation. Typically found in citrus fruits, leafy vegetables, tomatoes and a variety of other foods, vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is essential for maintaining a youthful and vibrant appearance. Vitamin C is used by our bodies to form collagen, the protein that provides support to our skin. It is also necessary for the growth and promotion of healthy bones, teeth, gums, and blood vessels. Vitamin C has also been shown to play a pertinent role in the absorption of iron and calcium by the body. These two minerals aid in the wound healing process while promoting proper brain function. The road to younger-looking skin can also start with vitamin C because it reduces the appearance of wrinkles, minimizes the dryness of skin and promotes an over-all, healthier aesthetic. Vitamin C plays a vital role in the development and maintenance of collagen within the skin, a demonstration reinforced through an array of efficacy studies. Deficiency of this essential nutrient can lead to scurvy, hemorrhages, impaired wound healing, and dental disorders, in addition to loose, saggy skin.

Additionally, studies show that vitamin C plays a substantive role as an antioxidant. Great for imparting anti-aging benefits, vitamin C helps protect the skin from damaging free-radicals and promotes the production of collagen. By supporting collagen synthesis, vitamin C proves to be fundamental in upholding the skin’s matrix to yield a youthful and taught aesthetic. Because of this endless list of skin protectant properties, we believed it was crucial to address the associated stability issues of vitamin C. FSS Bio-Chelate VC and ascorbic acid polypeptide complex, was created by combining a plant derived polypeptide substrate with vitamin C to produce a complex which yields a reaction which is carried out until the stable polypeptide and vitamin complex is formed.

FSS Bio-Chelate VC allows for an increased ability for topical absorption, while eliminating any toxicity or irritation issues occasionally associated with a topical application of vitamin C. This protein complex also results in a vitamin product that is water-dispersible and easy to incorporate in cosmetic formulations. Chemist should incorporate FSS Bio-Chelate VC into cosmetic applications when a product that helps boost collagen synthesis and provides potent antioxidant benefits is desired. By creating a protein complex, this product also provides increased moisture binding properties. FSS Bio-Chelate VC can be used to promote healthy skin by stabilizing Vitamin C which provides excellent antioxidant benefits when applied topically for potent anti-aging attributes.
