WHAT IS TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE?
Been hearing the buzz about the amazing ingredient that is tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate and want to know more? You’ve come to the right place! Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is a form of vitamin C which has been modified to be more lipid-soluble. This modification allows it to better penetrate the skin.
The problem with most topical forms of vitamin C is they’re water soluble and can’t make it through the lipid rich skin barrier to reach the dermis of skin where they could have maximal benefits. Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is able to successfully penetrate the epidermis and move to the layer underneath called the dermis. It’s in the dermis that collagen, a protein that gives skin its youthful firmness and ability to resist wrinkles, is made.
Using tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate means your skin benefits more from the use of vitamin C products being used on your skin.
