Why We Love It
This serum can be used day or night and gives an instant Vitamin C glow! It's stabilised and can brighten, target signs of ageing and give antioxidant protection.
Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant, brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of aging. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is an oil-soluble derivative of Vitamin C that can be used in higher concentrations without drawbacks. It is one of the most stable derivatives of Vitamin C but, being a derivative, its potency will not be directly comparable to pure L-Ascorbic Acid. It is provided in this oil-format formula in combination with Vitamin F, also known as essential fatty acids. Aside from the general benefits of pure Vitamin C, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmiate has been shown to offer specific skin brightening benefits.
Note: Supplied in UV-protective packaging.
Apply once or twice daily to the face, ideally at bedtime after cleansing and application of water-based treatments.
HOW TO APPLY
Apply 2-3 drops to face and massage until absorbed.
Heavier creams and balms if desired.
Deciem advises to proceed with caution if applying alongside Niacinamide (B3) as some people may find this combination irritating to the skin.
