Its molecular structure is much smaller than that of Vitamin E and C, and, therefore, it penetrates more readily through the epidermis into the dermis.It is water-soluble and most importantly it is safe. We have run no tests on the benefit of the antioxidants in our formulas to the skin, but there are a number of clinical reports attesting to its topical value as a free radical scavenger and as a preventative against UVB radiation damage.
