DESCRIPTION: Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is the tetraester of Ascorbic Acid and isopalmitic acid (Also known as VC-IP). It is priced in cosmetic as a stable vitamin C derivative with improved percutaneous absorption. It prevents lipid peroxidation, stimulates collagen production, lightens the skin's colour, fades and removes dark spots. A stable antioxidant against free radicals, protect skin cells and prevents and repairs acne. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate also has good anti-inflammatory properties, sunburn protection, skin lightening and anti-ageing benefits.
