THE ULTIMATE MULTI-TASKING SKIN BRIGHTENER TO BOOST COLLAGEN AND RESTORE RADIANCE.
Our best selling Vitamin C Oil combines cold-pressed plant oils rich in “master antioxidants” with next generation Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD) the gold-standard vitamin c ester that works at the dermis layer to rapidly correct dark spots, skin imperfections and to boost collagen production. This antioxidant formula instantly plumps and hydrates the skin for a radiant and glowing complexion. Can be used alone or mixed into your favorite serum or moisturizer.
There is a lot of buzz about the breakthrough ingredient Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate – a lipid soluble non-oxidizing form of vitamin that is able to penetrate the epidermis and move to the layer underneath called the dermis. It is the only form of vitamin c that can boost collagen production because it is fat-soluble, unlike L-Absorbic Acid which is water soluble and only works on the epidermis layer. As we age our fat pads that give us that youthful appearance start to decline, THD Ascorbate helps to boost the collagen and works over time to create a youthful cushion. Using tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate means your skin benefits more from the use of vitamin C products without the common dryness and irritation associated with L-Absorbic Acid.

TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE VERSES L-ABSORBIC ACID
1. (THD) is able to penetrate the epidermis and move to the layer underneath called the dermis where it can boost collagen production. Unlike L-Absorbic Acid which is water soluble and can only sit on the epidermis layer and is unable to boost collagen.
2. (THD) is highly stable and does not oxidize like L-Absorbic Acid.
3. (THD) Ascorbate at 10% is equal to 18% L-Absorbic Acid due to it’s lipid profile, it does not irritate the skin like L-Absorbic Acid because it is lipid soluble and has a higher PH range that is compatible with the skin’s acid mantle layer unlike L-Absorbic Acid which is typically a PH range of 3.5 and causes dryness to the epidermis layer.
4. (THD) has zero tackiness that is common with L-Absorbic Acid, (THD) can be applied under make-up.
