Looking to up your skincare game? Look no further than vitamin C serums with Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, also known as THD ascorbate or THDA, which is a form of vitamin C that has been gaining popularity in the skincare industry. This powerful antioxidant is known for its ability to brighten the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and protect against environmental stressors. Sounds good, right?
This unique oil-soluble vitamin C absorbs more deeply into fatty layer of the skin known as the hypodermis. It works so well in fact, that it surpasses the penetration of pure vitamin C threefold at the same concentration and it penetrates successfully into the deeper layers of the skin (that is usually important to do some anti-aging work). There is also promising in-vitro data showing that it converts to AA (L-Ascorbic Acid) in the skin.
THDA seems to have all three magic abilities of pure vitamin C: it gives antioxidant protection from both UVB and UVA rays, it increases collagen synthesis (even more than AA) and it has a skin brightening effect by reducing melanogenesis by more than 80% in human melanoma cell cultures. But what is won’t do that pure vitamin C often does because of its acidity is cause skin irritation. That is a win for sensitive or mature skin!
THD ascorbate is also known for its ability to boost collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein that gives the skin its elasticity and firmness. As we age, our collagen production decreases, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. By using products containing THD ascorbate, we can help stimulate collagen production supporting a firmer and tighter overall appearance of our skin.
Another benefit of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, is its ability to protect the skin from environmental stressors such as pollution and UV rays. These external stressors can cause damage to the skin, leading to premature aging and other degenerative skin concerns. THDA helps to neutralize free radicals and protect the skin from damage, keeping it looking healthy, youthful and radiant!
Overall, THD ascorbate is a powerful ingredient in skincare products that can provide a range of benefits for the skin. Whether you're looking to brighten your complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or protect your skin from environmental stressors, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is definitely worth considering.
