Reduced glutathione is considered to be the master antioxidant and a key for detoxification in the body. This small peptide can be oxidized or broken down easily when taken by mouth, so care must be put into formulation to make a truly effective product.
When it comes to glutathione formulas, there are a few key features to consider. Stability is an issue for many topical formulations, and is specifically problematic for formulas that contain water. Our carrier base in this cream is anhydrous, it contains no water at all. The stability of glutathione has been tested and proven to stay stable in this base. Be sure to check your product labels and ensure your glutathione product doesn't contain any water.
Another key consideration is the ability of a base to deliver active ingredients. The base in this formula is a professional compounding base typically reserved for prescription use only. The phospholipid carriers in this formula do an excellent job of driving glutathione into the skin, without the greasy feel of an ointment base.
