The fullerene effect on hyaluronic acid production

Takunori Matsumoto of Vitamin C60 BioResearch in Japan outlines a study into the effect of fullerene on hyaluronic acid production and its combination effect with retinol

Fullerene (C60) is a molecule with a unique soccer ball shaped structure and has been found as a substance with excellent antioxidant properties since research in the 1990s.1

In 2005, Vitamin C60 BioResearch Corporation (VC60), established as a group company of Mitsubishi Corporation in Japan, became the first company in the world to focus on the excellent antioxidant properties of fullerenes and to launch a fullerene cosmetic ingredient.
