Suppresses melanin synthesis
When AA-2G is converted to Vitamin C and enters skin cells, it significantly reduces the production of melanin by inhibiting tyrosinase activity. This results in a reduction of dopaquinone, an intermediate of melanin synthesis. Additionally, it converts existing dopaquinone to dopa.
Reduces skin hyperpigmentation
Elastect whitening lotions & creams containing AA-2G are effective at lightening skin hyperpigmentation.
Reduces existing melanin
When AA-2G is converted to Vitamin C and enters skin cells, it can significantly lighten existing black melanin by a reduction reaction.
Protects From UV Damage
Suppresses damage to cells caused by UV irradiation
When AA-2G is converted to Vitamin C, it can dramatically reduce the free radicals that result from UV irradiation of the skin, thereby significantly reducing cell damage.
Promotes collagen synthesis
Collagen is a protein that plays an important role in the structure and firmness of skin. When AA-2G is converted to Vitamin C and enters skin cells, it promotes collagen synthesis of skin fibroblasts. AA-2G maintains its effects for a sustained period.
Improves wrinkles and roughness
Elastect whitening lotions & creams containing AA-2G are highly effective at reducing wrinkles and skin roughness.
