Vitamin C60 BioResearch Natural-Derived Fullerene – A new era of anti-aging

Understanding Aging and Oxidative Stress' Impact on Skin

Oxidative stress caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) plays a major role in the visible signs of skin aging. As we age, our skin faces daily assaults from ROS that generate cascading reactions and cumulative damage. Neutralizing these harmful free radicals can help counteract their impact on skin health and appearance.


Fullerene – the discovery of which was Nobel Prize-winning chemistry - is a unique spherical molecule composed entirely of carbon that has remarkable free radical scavenging abilities. So potent is this ability that it has been described as a ‘free-radical sponge’, giving it exceptional capacity to detoxify ROS and protect skin from oxidative damage. By harnessing the potential of this powerful antioxidant, fullerene holds promise as a new era in anti-aging skincare.


The Unique Properties of Fullerence

"Probably the most beautiful symmetry of any molecule that's ever been discovered."

Sir Martyn Poliakoff, University of Nottingham


Potent, Stable Antioxidant

Compared to Vitamin C, Fullerene exhibits over 250 times the antioxidant activity, and crucially, it maintains this activity remarkably well after exposure to UVB radiation.


Strong Antioxidant Activity


Stable to Ultraviolet


Multifaceted Anti-ROS Activity

The anti-oxidation mechanism of Fullerene is not limited to one reaction; instead, Fullerene shows multiple pathways and, in comparison to some antioxidants, shows no pro-oxidative effect.


The key to Radiant Skin

The potent, multi-pathway activity of Fullerene together with its inherent stability make it the ideal solution for everyday skin protection and enhancement.


Introducing Fullerene from Vitamin C60 BioResearch Corporation

Decades of research and development culminated in VC60 BioResearch Corporation's 2020 introduction of the world's first plant-based fullerenes, produced through a proprietary, sustainable, cost-effective, and prolific process. This makes the everyday use of fullerenes a practical option as their full potential continues to be discovered.


VC60 BioResearch Corporation's Fullerene is derived from Japanese Cedar sourced from FSC certified managed forests, making it a potent, sustainable, and eco-friendly cosmetic active. It is available in various formats to support formulation and end-product flexibility, including water-soluble, oil-soluble, powder, and liposomal precursor forms.


The effectiveness of VC60 Fullerene is supported by extensive clinical and ex-vivo/in-vitro data, demonstrating the potent anti-aging potential of this truly innovative cosmetic ingredient.
