Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (THD) - A uniquely potent and deep penetrating form of vitamin c. This vitamin c is an antioxidant that inhibits lipid peroxidation and stimulates collagen. It brightens by inhibiting melanogenesis to create a more even skin tone. This lipid vitamin c penetrates into and fights free radical damage in our lipid, ceramide and cholesterol components of our skin. Its stability makes this a more robust form of vitamin c that stays potent for longer. It is resilient against rancidity and oxidation, preventing the pro-oxidant risks of conventional vitamin c ingredients. Unlike ascorbic acid it will not irritate or exfoliate the skin making it gentler on sensitive skin.

Oleo Hyaluronic acid - A fatty form of Hyaluronic acid. A unique microsphere technology where hyaluronic acid is contained in an oil-forming lipophil outer layer. This allows hyaluronic acid to moisturize from within skin tissue and slow release its moisturizing action.

Passionfruit seed oil - Also known as maracuja oil, this seed oil is a powerful antioxidant with the added benefits of being an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. A natural source of vitamin e and c.

All Ingredients: Squalane, Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, Caprylic triglyceride, Passiflora edulis (passionfruit) seed oil, Oleo-Hyaluronic acid (Sodium hyaluronate, Hydrogenated castor oil, Ricinus communis seed oil), Citrus sinensis (Sweet orange) Oil, Tocopherol.

How to Use

Good to Know


Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (THD) is naturally colourless or pale yellow in appearance, depending on the supplier.

While THD is very stable, it will eventually degrade from continual light exposure or heat (above 45 degrees C). Even though Holistic Vanity has chosen to package this oil in a clear bottle, we advise keeping it stored in a cool dark place.
