Organic skin care – Vitamin C – Ascorbyl glucoside

Ascorbyl glucoside is a gentler, more stable version of vitamin C and has seen a rise in popularity over the past year giving (traditional) Vitamin C a run for its money.  It is officially the UK’s most searched for skin care ingredient and is closely followed by Hyaluronic acid skin care.
