Showa Denko America

August 17, 2006

l Vitamin E is one of the most important vitamins for cosmetics, however its use in water formulations is restricted because of its oily nature and poor solubility in water. Showa Denko’s vitamin E phosphate is a water-soluble powdery vitamin E. The formula helps protect skin against UV rays and radical scavenging.
Apprecier, a new vitamin C derivative, is easily soluble in water and is suitable for various formulas including lotion, cream and essence. Apprecier is used as a wrinkle and pigmentation reducer and can also help other skin problems, such as acne, while providing UV protection. More info: www.sdasf.com.
