What it Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD)?

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is a stable, oil-soluble form of Vitamin C, used in cosmetics, personal care products and anti-aging products because of its ability to increase collagen levels, reduce melanin production, brighten skin, and repair the effects of UV exposure and other environmental damage.

Has excellent skin penetration and as a result, offers increased cell protection against UV-B. The skin cell viability is increased up to 30% when compared with l-ascorbic acid. Clear yellowish liquid. Oil-soluble, water-insoluble.

Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is a stable form of vitamin C that is considered an analogue of L-ascorbic acid. Unlike pure vitamin C (ascorbic acid), tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is lipid (fat) soluble.

Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is oil-soluble. Studies show that it penetrates both the epidermis (the uppermost layer of skin) and dermis (the deepest layer of skin).

In other words, it penetrates skin faster and goes in deeper than any other form of vitamin C (including L-Ascorbic Acid!).

Benefits:

  • Can improve the appearance of aged and fragile skin
  • Widely used as add-on ingredient in skin-lightening products to correct hyperpigmentation and dark spots
  • Antioxidants effect can be increased by combining L-ascorbic acid with L-ascorbyl palmitate and/or vitamin E
  • Does not give finished formulas a yellowish color like l-ascorbic acid
  • Feels amazing on the skin

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE FOR YOUR SKIN?

Once it penetrates skin and converts to L-Ascorbic Acid, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate behaves pretty much the same way as L-Ascorbic Acid: 

  • Antioxidant: it destroys the free radicals that cause premature wrinkles.
  • Brightening: it fades away discolorations by reducing the production of melanin by more than 80%
  • Firming: it boosts the production of collagen (way more than L-Ascorbic Acid).

Vitamin C is probably the most powerful anti-aging ingredient there is because it is the one ingredient, that from an anti-aging point of view, directly stimulates collagen.

There’s a natural receptor for it, which is a unique receptor. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, which protects the collagen we have from breaking down from free radicals and it directly blocks an enzyme that leads to melasma and hyperpigmentation.

It really does make the skin look fantastic so you know there’s room for improvement and innovation, which is where I come in.

Ideal for those with sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation who want even-toned, smooth, and soothed skin.

Why is vitamin C the wonder ingredient?
It undoes photodamage and works on the realigning and thickening of collagen. Collagen formation needs to have ascorbic acid (a.k.a. vitamin C) to function. If you don’t have it, you get something called scurvy.

But you’re also into it for its sun protective qualities?
If you put Vitamin C on your skin and go out in the sun, you get a little less sunburn than if you didn’t. Add vitamin E to the equation, you get even a little less sunburn. Now, if you put C, E and melatonin on, you’ll get exponentially less sunburn. That said, I could not determine specifically how the melatonin works to activate the C. It enhances it, they work symbiotically, but no one knows how because the sum is so far greater than the parts. Melatonin is an antioxidant as well but somehow when it’s put together with C and E, it’s terrific. Both are in my C Boost Serum.

Niacinamide is another interesting ingredient (it’s also in Boost). There have been a whole bunch of studies that prove it offers enormous protection against basal cell carcinoma when ingested. It’s been this year’s top story in the medical news. We don’t know if it works topically, but it doesn’t hurt and it was no big deal to add to the formulation. I actually felt a few years ago that most products on the market didn’t do a damn thing, but now they actually do.

How does melasma start?

It starts with an insult of some sort, okay, physical or chemical. It could be the excess of to much sun. It could be irritation to something, which is actually technically called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, but sometimes it occurs without the inflammation so it’s something that some people…it’s just something they applied to their skin didn’t agree with them and then there’s a hormonal aspect to it, where birth control pills and pregnancy and puberty and high estrogen levels seem to be a trigger as well.
