Stable Lipophilic Vitamin C Ester
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is a very stable, oil-soluble Vitamin C ester but has no inherent capabilities as an antioxidant because all hydroxyl groups are esterified. VitaSynol® C is truly a precursor of Vitamin C, release of which reduces cell damage triggered by UVB and suppresses UV-induced melanogenesis through ROS scavenging. Since release of Vitamin C may take hours before it shows protective effect, it is prudent to include an effective antioxidant like Synoxyl® AZ or Sytenol® A to VitaSynol® C formulations.
