Whether you’ve been looking to simplify your skin care routine or amp it up, a vitamin C serum might be your golden ticket. Topical vitamin C is a multipurpose workhorse that can protect, repair, and enhance your skin.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can be used topically to counteract the effect of oxidative stress on the skin and neutralize damaging free radicals.
Vitamin C is best applied in the form of a serum - where there’s a much higher proportion of active ingredient - in the morning before sunblock. L-ascorbic acid is the most effective synthetic form of Vitamin C but can be more irritating for sensitive skin and is highly unstable. Magnesium and Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate are less irritating derivatives but are less potent and may not provide the same anti-oxidant effect.
Benefits of Vitamin C:
◾️Reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
◾️Protects collagen and increases production.
◾️Aids wound healing.
◾️Helps protect against sun damage.
◾️Creates a more even skin tone.
◾️Acts like armor against pollution and other free radicals.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD) is a form of vitamin C which has been modified to be soluble in oil or lipids. In fact, it penetrates the skin faster and deeper than any other form of vitamin C to produce effects in the dermis as well as the epidermis.
THD ascorbate converts to L-ascorbic acid and behaves in exactly the same way as L-ascorbic acid, but without its limitations. It provides powerful antioxidant protection by destroying free radicals that cause premature aging of the skin, reduces the amount of skin pigment by almost 80%, boosts collagen production, and stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid. Most importantly though, THD ascorbate is stable, safe, effective, and suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
