All About Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD for short!)

The Magic of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate: Why We Swear By It

In the vast landscape of skincare ingredients, some stand out more than others, shining brightly amid countless compounds. One such superstar in our lineup is Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate or THD.

But what makes it so unique?

A Form of Vitamin C Like No Other

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate isn't just any form of Vitamin C. It's an oil-soluble derivative, which means it has a unique advantage when it comes to penetration. Water-soluble forms, which are needed in some formulations and combinations, penetrate the skin but not at the same depths as Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate does, which has the unique advantage of diving deep, ensuring that the benefits of Vitamin C are delivered directly where they're needed most.

Gentle Yet Effective

For all its potency, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is incredibly gentle to the skin. It can be less irritating than some other forms of Vitamin C, making it a go-to for those with sensitive skin profiles or those who have had less than pleasant experiences with pure Ascorbic Acid.

Gleamin uses Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate in our Vitamin C Advanced Energy Cream and Vitamin C Supernutrient Oil as gentle alternatives for those who want Vitamin C but can't tolerate higher concentrations. We also use this form in these formulas as additional Vitamin C boosts when used with our 15% Vitamin C Superactive Serum. It also plays well with other skincare actives, making it a no-brainer form of Vitamin C for the Gleamin lineup.


Hyperpigmentation's Foe

We're all about combating hyperpigmentation, uneven skin that shows up as larger clusters of dark spots, or the pesky marks left from healing acne. Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is a crucial player in this battle of diminishing hyperpigmentation. Its deep penetration, coupled with its potent antioxidant properties, means it actively works to brighten the skin, even out tone, and lessen the appearance of dark spots and uneven patches.

Stability Matters

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate shines in the stability department. While Vitamin C is notorious for its fickleness and instability in certain forms like ascorbic acid, this derivative remains more stable in formulations, ensuring that you get a product that retains its long-term efficacy.

In Conclusion

Our love for Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is rooted in science, efficacy, and the undeniable results it brings to the table. In our mission to provide simple yet effective solutions for hyperpigmentation and overall skin health, it's an ingredient we cherish and are proud to include in our formulations.
