Chemical Properties

ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is ascorbic acid and its derivatives, such as ascorbyllinoleate, are said to have skin-lightening and antioxidant properties. Its stability is a main concern when incorporating it into cosmetic formulations.
It is termed vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin that prevents scurvy, helps maintain the body’s resistance to infection, and is essential for healthy bones and teeth. It is the most easily destroyed vitamin and processing is recommended in stainless steel or glass. Storage at below ?18°C is recommended. In its dry form it is nonreactive, but in solution it readily reacts with atmospheric oxygen and other oxidizing agents. One part is equivalent to one part erythorbic acid. It is used as a vitamin supplement in beverages, potato flakes, and breakfast foods; and as a dough conditioning agent to strengthen and condition bread roll doughs. It is also used as an antioxidant to increase shelf life in canned and frozen processed foods. It is used in conjunction with BHA, BHT, and propyl gallate to regenerate them following the chemical changes they undergo when they prevent fat rancidity in bologna and other meats. Other forms of are isoascorbic (erythorbic) acid, sodium ascorbate, and sodium isoascorbate.
