Painted Earths scientists and formulators have refined ways to stabilize and deliver additional amounts of key Vitamin C into the skin. Our vitamin C formulations are superior to most of the C products on the market. Due to our use of a uniquely stabilized vitamin C called Stay C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate). Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is water soluble and is a salt form. It is easily bio-converted to Vitamin C by skin enzymes. Ascorbyl Palmitate is the more commonly used form of vitamin C in skin care formulations today. It is more stable, meaning that it will not yellow the product base as quickly. The reason that we do not use the more commonly used Ascorbyl Palmitate is that it is not as easily converted to Vitamin C in the skin....it remains in the ester form for a longer period of time. This is not optimal as we want the skin to bio-convert the pro-vitamin form and take up the C right away! What good will a vitamin C concentrate do for your complexion and skin cells if it cannot actually penetrate into the skin? So what we are saying here is that the more commonly used Ascorbyl Palmitate is more stable but less bio-available to the skin. We use Stay C at concentrations that may turn the base a light cream color over time. That is because vitamin C is active...all vitamins are active and sensitive to light. The main reason the Palmitate version was created was to avoid the yellowing in formulation but really had nothing to do with the skin efficacy. We are only interested in efficacy, and if we have to watch our product turn a light yellow in order to have the best skin care available, well, so be it!!
