Italian term or phrase: Ascorbilpalmitato
***Ascorbilpalmitato***, la vitamina C affine alla pelle.
(In fact the whole sentence has thrown me off...affine?
Vitamin C is similar to the skin?! There's something I'm clearly not seeing here. Bad day. BAD day...)

Ascorbyl palmitate
Explanation:
Hi, the description below is from the referenced site.
As to "affine", it's indubitably a typo for "affina" from the verb "affinare", meaning to improve or refine.

Ascorbyl palmitate is a synthetic ester comprised of the 16-carbon chain saturated fatty acid palmitic acid and L-ascorbic acid. The ester linkage is at the 6 carbon of ascorbic acid. It is used as an antioxidant in foods, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, and is also used as a preservative for the natural oils, oleates, fragrances, colors, vitamins and other edible oils and waxes which are used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and foods.

Oops, sorry about that \"affine\" - I misread your sentence and \"affinare\" is often used in translations about cosmetics and skin treatments.
I\'d put \"the type of Vitamin C with the closest affinity to the skin\" or something along those lines. L-ascorbic acid is Vitamin C.
