- L-ascorbic acid
L-ascorbic acid also called vitamin C, is a water soluble vitamin and acts as a reducing agent for various biochemical reactions. Ascorbic acid plays a key role in the production of collagen. Ascorbic acid is essential for neurodevelopment, neurotransmitter synthesis and modulates neuronal synapsis. Dietary inadequacy of vitamin C has negative impact on cognition.
Arbutin is a glycoside; a glycosylated hydroquinone extracted from the bearberry plant in the genus Arctostaphylos among many other medicinal plants, primarily in the family Ericaceae. Applied topically, it inhibits tyrosinase and thus prevents the formation of melanin.
Vitamin C as a one of the key ingredients of Obagi-C collection improves overall photodamaged appearance, brightens skin, provides antioxidant defense, evens skin tone, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Obagi-C collection combines Vitamin C and arbutin to promote rejuvenation of skin’s appearance and enhance the appearance of even skin tone for a healthier-looking complexion.

“Not all Vitamin C forms are created equal. There are multiple options to choose from when formulating a Vitamin C skin care product and all come with different efficacy and stability levels. Of all the forms, L-ascorbic acid is the most powerful, which is why it was carefully selected as our gold standardingredient.“
