1. Vitamin C Stabilized Topical Formulation

(U.S. Patent Application # 20040034094)


Ascorbic acid, by our technology, can be stabilized in the formulations that may contain a  significant amount of water. Ascorbic acid is insoluble in oil (but, more stable) and soluble  in water (but, unstable). Most anhydrous formulations that contain a large amount of oil- type  ingredients do not provide adequate absorption of ascorbic acid into skin. The  formulations that contain a small amount of water can provide better skin penetration of  ascorbic acid. However, most such water-based formulations do not provide a  reasonable stability profile. Our technology offers practical, inexpensive solutions.


2. Topical Formulation Including Stabilized Water-Soluble and Oil-Soluble Compositions 

(U.S. Patent Application # 20040105873; 20050208003)
