Everyone wants to look like they have glowing skin. What people aren't looking for that? As we all know, skin can damage from time in the sun, but, with the right ingredients, you can get a beautiful, healthy glow without stepping foot outside! It's an easy way to turn a day into the office into a day at the park, and your skin be none the wiser.
One of the best ingredients? Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate! Yes, it is a bit of a mouthful. But this nifty little spelling bee nightmare is an excellent form of Vitamin C for your skin!
What is it?
Scientifically, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is a Vitamin C ester that is oil-soluble and stable. This means that it's easier to package properly in skincare products, so that it's still chock-full of Vitamin C when it gets to your skin! With other, water-soluble sources, it's far less likely to be a stable source, and unlikely to be worth the time and effort. This makes tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate an excellent way to easily get some Vitamin C to your skin, without any exfoliants or acids that might be rough on skin. If you have sensitive skin that needs a gentle touch, products like our Brighter Day Beautaniq Booster are a great way to glow without going red from irritation. The antioxidant properties it packs are a major bonus, too!
What does it do?
It Provides Vitamin C
Vitamin C is very important to your skin. Along with our antioxidants, it can protect your skin from UV and other free radicals. Because it is lipid soluble, it bonds with oils, making it a better choice of ingredient for skincare. Water-soluble Vitamin C sources are almost impossible to package properly, since they need an air-tight container. With lipid-solubles, you can add it directly to the cream! It's very stable, and will still be there long after packaging, and doesn't need air-tight containment. You'll get more usage out of skincare products containing tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, and can use it more often. This means less damage to your skin. You can also use Vitamin C to even out any discoloration in your skin, since it inhibits melanin production in the skin. It's a natural ingredient that can't be beat when it comes to skin care!
It Gets You Glowing!
That healthy look we mentioned? This is it! For healthy skin, there's nothing quite like this. Using products containing tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate can make your skin look healthier, helping to repair UV damage, smooth out wrinkles, reduce dark spots and fine lines, plus so much more. While other ingredients might be harsh, or achieve these goals by literally scrubbing away layers of skin, this isn't the same. It truly helps to heal your skin and, even better, it heals gently.
It Can Help With UV Damage
Older generations would lie out in the sun for a “healthy” glow. Now, of course, we know that UV rays aren't healthy at all, and damage all skin types over time. If you've been stuck in the sun and have UV damage, good news: Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate can undo some of that damage! The antioxidant effect it has means that your skin can more easily repair itself from the damage of free radicals, including UV exposure.
