What is THD Ascorbate?
THD Ascorbate is a hyper-effective stable form of Vitamin C. Ascorbic Acid alone can easily degrade therefore rendering formula ineffective after a few days! C21 is easily absorbed by the skin, which allows an ultra potent dose of stabilized Vitamin C. Through incredible chemistry, we have combined BOTH top performing versions (L-Ascorbic & THD Ascorbate) in a super stable Hyaluronic acid base.
THD Ascorbate has been esterified with tetrahydrodiferuloylmethane (THD), which is a molecule derived from Turmeric. This esterification process helps stabilize Vitamin C, making it more effective and longer-lasting when applied to the skin. In addition, the esterification of Vitamin C with THD helps to reduce its potential for irritation, making it suitable for use on even sensitive skin. This is important, as some forms of Vitamin C can be harsh and irritating, particularly for those with sensitive skin.
Why THD Ascorbate?
THD Ascorbate has high skin permeation and therefore easily absorbed into the skin, making it more effective in promoting skin health. Vitamin C is a beneficial antioxidant that can help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals and UV radiation. It also helps to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. THD is safe for acne prone and sensitive skin types.
Increased bio-availability: THD Ascorbate is considered to be a more effective form of Vitamin C than commonly used forms, such as ascorbic acid or magnesium ascorbyl phosphate alone. THD Ascorbate is more easily absorbed into the skin compared to other forms of Vitamin C due to its smaller molecular size and better solubility in lipid (fatty) layers of the skin. This allows THD Ascorbate to penetrate the skin more easily, delivering more of the active ingredient to the deeper layers of the skin where it can be more effective.
Skincare benefits: THD Ascorbate can be used to improve the overall appearance of the skin, reduce inflammation, and boost collagen production. It is also helps protect the skin from sun damage and environmental stressors. Overall, THD Ascorbate is considered to be a more effective and better tolerated form of Vitamin C in skincare formulation, due to its smaller molecular size and better skin penetration, as well as its stability and reduced potential for irritation.
THD Ascorbate benefits:
1. Brightening the skin and reducing the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation
2. Improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
3. Stimulating collagen production, leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin
4. Strengthening the skin's barrier function and helping to keep skin hydrated
5. Antioxidant protection against environmental stressors
