Ingredient Spotlight Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is the most promising Vitamin C derivative created so far. It penetrates skin deeper than all other forms of Vitamin C (including L-Ascorbic Acid!) so it does a better job at fighting free radicals, boosting collagen and brightening the skin tone. It is also one of the most stable, oil-soluble forms of Vitamin C used in cosmetics and skincare products because of it’s amazing ability to increase collagen levels, reduce melanin production, brighten skin, and repair the effects of UV exposure and other environmental damage. It’s also considered to be more concentrated than L-asorbic acid and other Vitamin C compounds and has a higher rate of penetration than other derivatives! Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate also has a higher rate of conversion to Vitamin C within the dermis. You can now find this amazing ingredient in LaVigne Natural Skincare’s best-selling Vitamin C Serum!

Vitamin C Discoveries:
Vitamin C, when applied topically helps to protect the skin from free radicals that are produced when the skin is exposed to ultraviolet light, environmental pollution or other factors commonly found during everyday life. The Dept of Dermatology at the Tulane University School of Medicine discovered and supports topical use of cosmeceuticals containing Vitamin C as an effective anti-oxidant in skin care.
According to a study conducted at the Department of Dermatology,University Hospital St Jacques in France, it was concluded that topical application of 5% vitamin C cream was an effective treatment for sun-damaged skin.The study, conducted over a six-month period, led to a clinically apparent improvement of “photo-damaged skin”, suggesting a positive inﬂuence of topical vitamin C for sun-induced skin-aging. Changes observed with the consistent use of a topical product containing 5% Vitamin C included a statistically significant improvement of hydration, wrinkles, glare and brown spots.
