Vitamin C Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate
CAS No. 183476-82-6
CLEAR ice white viscous liquid OIL SOLUBLE
stable oil-soluble Vitamin C ester which has anti-oxidant activity, inhibiting lipid peroxidation. Topical use can mitigate the damaging effects of UV exposure. Studies have shown it to stimulate collagen production as well as clarifying and brightening the skin by inhibiting melanogenesis (the production of pigment) assisting a more even skin tone.
Does not irritate skin.
Usage: Typical 0.5-2%, up to 12%
Compounding notes. this is a very easy to use, very stable, highly bioavailable oil soluble Vitamin hit. Easier to use, and more bioavailable than the oil soluble power ( vitamin C ester) - which will often leave a little residue that needs to be filtered out.
Will not turn your products yellow/brown over time.
