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.

Directions: In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 2-3 drops of serum to fingertips and gently apply to dry face. Lightly massage serum over face and neck until it has absorbed.
What people are saying about our Vitamin C Serum!

“I love the vitamin C serum!! It works well to reduce what I call my ‘stress frown line’ on my forehead. It rivals Harry potter’s scar lol. I also like to use this to help keep other wrinkles at bay. It’s not sticky like other versions I’ve tried and I have had no reactions with my super sensitive skin. My daughter also uses a drop on her acne to make it go away sooner. Literally a drop is all you need so it lasts forever. Definitely a must try!!” – Jamie


“Smells amazing just got it!” – Jess


“I cannot believe how much I love LaVigne products. Wish I would have started sooner! My friends have noticed a difference with my skin too. Yesterday after a lunch out with some friends, one of them went to Nature’s Fare and bought the Vitamin C Serum. She sent me a message this morning and stated that even after just one night, her skin feels better!” – Teresa


“I recently ordered the Vit c serum on the black Friday sale and was super excited to get 30% off! The excitement didn’t end there bec I received it in the mail the following Wednesday. Exceptionally fast delivery!! especially when the postal system is overwhelmed (as we are in the mists of the Christmas season.) When I opened it, i just LOVED the scent, and after applying it only once, i could feel a pleasant firming action. I can’t wait to see the long term results from this serum , as some of my closest friends rave about it!!” – Tiffany

Clear Magic Facial Spray “This spray saved my kids skin this summer!!! Both of them went to the waterpark on a hot day. I was not there to frequently remind them to apply more sunscreen. They both came home lobster red and I knew they were going to be uncomfortable and they would also be peeling. I got them to shower to cool their skin down and we sprayed all over their bodies. 2 hours later we sprayed them again, and then once more at bedtime. They woke up and their burns were very minimal and only slightly pink. We continued to spray a total of 3 more times and the burn was gone the following day with out peeling.

I got it as part of a gift bag at Indie Beauty Expo and wasn’t expecting much, but after a few weeks of using it morning and night my skin had never looked better. Ordering again to see if it wasn’t just a fluke, but I’m rarely impressed by skincare products so had to leave a comment.” – Joe

The Best Foods for Beautiful Skin

Posted on: 08/20/2013 | 2 Comments

We’ve all heard the saying “you are what you eat,” but this old adage is most often associated between fatty foods and obesity.

When we focus so much appearance, it’s easy to go about our days focusing on low-calorie foods instead of nutritionally sound choices.

Not only do healthy foods reduce your risk for chronic illness, but dermatologic studies continue to show that certain nutrients play a vital role in long-term skin health.

Consider the following food sources and incorporate these easy recipes in your day to maintain beautiful skin. With summer here in the Northern Hemisphere, so many of these delicious beauties are well-priced and readily available. Get to the produce shop and pick up some great looking skin!


There are numerous reasons why these fruits are “berry” good for your skin (sorry, couldn’t help ourselves!).raspberries

First, they’re packed with vitamin C to reduce free radicals linked to wrinkles and sun damage. Furthermore, the naturally high water content helps your face maintain moisture to reduce the appearance of the visible signs of aging. Note: Keep reading below for a topical Vitamin C option to help boost your skin even further!

Organic strawberries are rated among the best berries, although blueberries and blackberries are also ranked high on the list.

Try: A fruity parfait with your favorite berries, almonds, Greek yogurt, homemade granola and honey.


Carrots are another natural source of antioxidants. Containing vitamin A, carrots provide skin with a healthier complexion by reducing the number of dead skin cells in the epidermis and stimulating cell turnover. When dead skin cells congregate, you’re left with dryness as well as clogged pores. This powerful antioxidant also treats acne and rosacea, and may prevent premature lines.

Try: A half-cup of organic carrots with hummus for a fiber-packed snack.

Green Tea

Green tea contains catechins, which are substances that may reduce your chances for cancer in the long term. This also includes skin cancer.

Short-term benefits are felt immediately through reduced skin inflammation. Green tea accomplishes this by determining levels of Caspase-14, a type of genetic protein responsible for regulating skin cells. While white tea can also help the skin, it doesn’t contain the same level of antioxidants as world-renowned green versions do.

Try: Two to three cups of hot green tea a day.


If Popeye were real, he would surely have a great complexion! Spinach is packed with vitamin C, folate and water. Like other antioxidant-rich foods, these leafy greens help product your body against free radicals thanks to a high lutein content. A 2006 study on lutein found that this compound not only increases skin hydration, but also the elasticity needed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Try: For the ultimate skin health meal, try a spinach and berry salad with a homemade vinaigrette of olive oil, honey and garlic. Add some almonds on top for a mix of healthy protein and fat.

Sweet Potatoes

Like carrots, sweet potatoes are packed with skin-healthy vitamin A. However, these autumn favorites are also packed with vitamin C. While vitamin A balances out skin hydration, vitamin C is directly linked to increasing collagen to prevent skin wrinkles. When considering potatoes, these versions are an extra sweet treat for your skin because they help to increase collagen production.

Try: Thinly slice sweet potatoes on a baking pan coated in olive oil. Add a small amount of sea salt to taste if desired, but keep in mind that too much salt can dehydrate the skin!


When cooked, tomatoes release lycopene. Not only is this ingredient great for eye health, but sun-exposed skin will also benefit. Studies show that tomatoes eaten within hours of sun exposure can help reduce burning. The fewer sunburns you have over the course of a lifetime, the less likely you’ll develop premature skin aging and cancer.

Try: Combine with olive oil, fresh basil and garlic for a ready-to-use pesto on pasta and chicken.

Five Reasons to Use Vitamin C on Your Skin

Posted on: 12/13/2012 | No Comments

Vitamin C has been touted as an amazing ingredient in clinical skin care for decades. Why does the love affair with Vitamin C continue? Here are five reasons:

Protection Against Sun Damage — Vitamin C prevents sunburns, as well as reduces the formation and number of sunburned cells. This is attributed to the ability of Vitamin C to counteract free radicals generated by ultraviolet radiation.

Reduced Inflammation — Inflammation is the body’s natural defense against injury. This redness, tenderness and swelling generate free radicals, which are then neutralized by the introduction of Vitamin C to the area.

Increased Collagen Production —When introduced to fibroblasts in lab dishes, Vitamin C was found to stimulate collagen production.

Increased Immune System — Vitamin C has been well documented to help the immune system when we’re sick. Our skin has its own immune system comprised of Langerhans cells which are strengthened by the introduction of Vitamin C.

Skin Lightening — In concentrations over 10%, Vitamin C leads to a marked reduction in the severity of hyper pigmentation. The same principles that cause lemon juice to lighten our hair also apply to our skin.

Dr Oz Highlights Topical Vitamin C As #1 Secret for Youthful Skin!

Posted on: 11/02/2012 | 2 Comments

Why should you be using topical Vitamin C on your face on a daily basis?

Dr Oz told us exactly why last night!

Dr Oz introduced his guests, top plastic surgeons, Dr Leif Rogers and Dr Shirley Madhere. The surgeons both described how people considering plastic surgery to reduce signs of aging could achieve major improvements with their skin by using the #1 Secret for Youthful Skin — Vitamin C!

Dr Rogers explained that Vitamin C is in your skin when you’re young. “It’s a powerful antioxidant critical in collagen synthesis. As we age, we lose Vitamin C. Other things break it down as well, such as UV damage, toxins from smoking, and because of that we end up with more wrinkles and drier skin.

So, “the secret is to actually put the Vitamin C back into your skin with topical treatments.”

Dr Madher said that results from topical Vitamin C application will vary from person to person. Some people may see results after use for 2-4 weeks, whereas others may see improvement after 6-8 weeks, with a maximum effect taking place after 6 months.

Dr Oz demonstrated the loss of elastin in our skin as we age, by having two audience members jump on mini-trampolines. The first woman, jumping on the trampoline with plenty of ‘bounce’ and resilience demonstrates our skin when we’re young. The second woman, on a weaker trampoline, which was not bouncing back nearly as well, demonstrated aging skin that has lost its elastin, or its ability to ‘bounce’ back.

Dr Oz: “When you’re young, you have lots of bounciness in your skin, so you can push on it and you don’t get any wrinkles, because the skin’s elasticity allows it to maintain that bounciness. ”

As you age, collagen is damaged or broken down, showing a loss of elasticity, that’s why Vitamin C is so critical.

“Vitamin C gives you new strings on that trampoline (your skin), rejuvenating your skin, and reversing the age-related damage to your skin. That gives you less wrinkles,” said Dr Oz.

LaVigne Organic Skincare offers a powerful Vitamin C Serum, containing – of course – Ascorbic Acid Polypeptide (Vitamin C), PLUS avocado oil, rosehip oil, glycolic acid, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin E and Tepezcohuite.

This serum is non-sticky, leaving a beautifully smooth appearance and feel to the skin. It’s also scent free and paraben free.
