Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is an oil soluble form of vitamin C. Studies indicate that it penetrates the epidermis, the uppermost layer of skin and also the dermis, the deepest layer of skin, faster and deeper than any other form of vitamin C.
Provides potent antioxidant protection by destroying free radicals that cause premature ageing. Fading age spots, enhancing collagen production and skin brightening. More effectively than L-ascorbic acid. This is because one of the limiting factors with L-ascorbic acid is its inability to penetrate deeper into the dermis.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate also stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans such as hyaluronic acid that are naturally present in skin and so help to hydrate skin as well as plump skin cells.
