ReCverin LLC announces that U.S. Patent 8,324,269, which covers stabilized solutions of dehydroascorbic acid, issued on Dec. 4, 2012. Dehydroascorbic acid is one of the two naturally-occurring forms of Vitamin C, and is also known as Vitamin C2. Vitamin C2 has many unique and favorable properties as compared to the commonly known ascorbic acid form of Vitamin C, including its ability to absorb into human cells many times faster and to much higher levels. It also penetrates into the outer layer of skin much more easily, making it superior for topical application to the skin. Dehydroascorbic acid is extremely difficult to provide to consumers, because it is chemically unstable and breaks down rapidly. Until scientists at ReCverin discovered how to stabilize solutions of dehydroascorbic acid, there has been no product available to provide this special form of Vitamin C for skin care or dietary supplementation. This discovery has now been granted all the rights ensuing from a United States Patent.
