A powerhouse oil serum with 10% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate Vitamin C and Squalane for brighter, firmer, more even looking skin --- with an illuminated glow. 

Called the "Gold Standard" for Vitamin C, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (BV-OSC THD) is considered one of the most effective forms of Vitamin C. 

It is a lipophilic form of Vitamin C that penetrates deeply while being non-irritating, non-acidic, and non-exfoliating. It is also highly stable compared to other forms of Vitamin C.

Vitamin C is paired with Squalane, Jojoba, Rosehip and Wild Watermelon Oil. This further enhances Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate Vitamin C penetration. Nourishing lipids support the skin barrier and help lock in moisture. 

Clients will see healthier, firmer looking skin with a luminous dewy glow. Bonus: antioxidant protection.

Additional use: mix a few drops with moisturizer or makeup.

KEY INGREDIENTS

10% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C) – considered the “gold standard” in Vitamin C. 

  • Highly stable and oil (lipid) soluble, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (aka THD Ascorbate) may penetrate better into skin than other forms of vitamin C.

  • Helps brighten, address dullness, and improve the overall appearance of skin.

  • Support natural collagen, improve the appearance of fine lines, and firmer looking skin.

  • Antioxidant - helps protect skin lipids and ceramides and defend from environmental aggressors.

  • THD is non-exfoliating and less potentially irritating than other forms of vitamin C. Delivered in nourishing oils, makes it a lovely choice for sensitive skin.
