BV-OSC (Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate)
Powerful oil soluble Vitamin C. Will not oxidise, penetrates quickly and provides multiple anti-ageing benefits. Protects cells from UV damage, improves skin tone whilst promoting healthy collagen synthesis, resulting in a stronger, resilient, clearer, brighter, more even-toned, smoother complexion.
An increase in oxidative stress wreaks havoc on skin health, hindering collagen synthesis and speeding up collagen breakdown, higher photo-damage, resulting in increased melanin production. As a result, skin visibly ages, with wrinkles, roughness, ‘age spots’ uneven pigmentation, reduced skin brightness and a decline in skin hydration. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Vitamin C acts at a cellular level increasing cell survival, collagen synthesis, ensuring skin hydration.
- UV Protection – UV exposure increases inflammation in the epidermis and dermis, damaging the DNA. UV rays increase melanin production and skin thickness, but not in a good way, resulting in a skin that is thick, coarse, full of wrinkles, and pigmentation. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate achieves excellent penetration within the skin keratinocytes, fighting harmful effects of UV radiation. Cells treated with Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate have a better survival rate.
- Melanocytes – Produce melanin, a dark pigment, which protects skin from UV damage. However, too much of this pigment can result in a darkened, patchy, complexion. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate helps reduce melanin production, resulting in skin brightening.
- Collagen – With age and exposure to environmental toxins and pollutants, skin loses collagen reserves. However, all is not lost, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate helps promote healthy collagen synthesis as well as causing a decline in the activity of collagen-degrading enzymes.
- Multi-Functional – Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is a potent anti-ageing, antioxidant, melanin suppressing, and collagen boosting skincare ingredient with an impressive safety profile.
