Cetpro SAP

Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP) is a water-soluble, stable derivative of Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). It is converted to the Vitamin-C form within the skin by enzymatic activity. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a potent antioxidant for use in wide-ranging skincare formulations. It aids the formation of new skin collagen, thus assists in combating photo-oxidative damage in the skin from UV-A exposure.  

It has multiple cosmetic benefits, including:

  • skin whitening
    • very strong antioxidant
    • strong free radical scavenger
    • stimulates the production of collagen
    • antimicrobial especially against propionibacterium acnes
  • more stable and bioavailable than Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP)
  • increases the effectiveness of sunscreens
