What it is
Calcium Ascorbate is a stable form of Vitamin C.
What it does
Calcium Ascorbate is an antioxidant that fights free radical formation and is necessary for collagen production. It also helps heal inflammation.
In addition, it is used in cosmetic products to adjust their ph and to help prevent them from spoiling when they come in contact with the oxygen in the air.
Calcium Ascorbate is generally considered to be safe. However, products containing forms of Vitamin C can be expensive so make sure they contain a high enough concentration of this ingredient (don’t buy products that list it at the very end!) before purchasing. If the concentrations are too small, it just won’t do much for your skin at all.
