The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution: is a mild skin treatment solution for blocking pigment production and increasing cell turnover. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F is a high-strength oil-solubilized Vitamin C derivative in Vitamin F.
Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant, brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of ageing. 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.
Topical Vitamin C offers a wide array of benefits to the skin. However, many forms of Vitamin C serums and many more formulations of Vitamin C are available commercially with a potential to confuse the audience. Deciem have developed a guide that offers guidance on the formulations of Vitamin C offered under The Ordinary range. It also offers education on Vitamin C itself and on the differences between formulations of Vitamin C at large.
Directions: Apply a few drops of Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate to the entire face in the AM and/or PM.
