Our Deep C Serum combines Ultrafine L-Ascorbic Acid, with oil soluble Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, a form of Vitamin C that's been modified to be more lipid soluble.
This modification allows it to better penetrate the skin. The problem with most topical forms of vitamin C is that they're water soluble and can't make it through the lipid-rich skin barrier to reach the dermis of the skin.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is able to successfully penetrate the layers of the epidermis to the underneath layer of dermis. It is in the dermis that Collagen, a protein that gives skin its youthful firmness and ability to resist wrinkles, is made.
*Formulated to penetrate the skin's dermis
*Effectively delivers Vitamin C beneath the dermis to keep Collagen growth stimulated & healthy

Benefits for Skin
Vitamin C has a variety of benefits for health and for maintaining healthy, youthful skin. It functions as an antioxidant, helping to offset oxidative damage that degrades collagen and leads to wrinkles and saggy skin. When skin is exposed to ultraviolet light from the sun, a sequence of events occurs that leads to free radical production. These free radicals damage skin cell membranes and activate enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, two most important proteins that keep skin firm and youthful. Vitamin C has the ability to donate electrons to free radicals so they aren’t as damaging to cellular structures. Vitamin C isn’t a substitute for sunscreen, but it does provide extra protection against oxidative damage that can lead to premature aging and skin cancer.
Another benefit of vitamin C is it stimulates collagen production. Since collagen provides skin with the support it needs to stay firm and youthful, this helps to reduce wrinkles and skin sagging. A study published in the Archives of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery found that participants who used topical vitamin C for three months experienced a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles and an improvement in skin texture. This was confirmed by a similar study published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery. Topical vitamin C also appears to be effective for lightening excessive skin pigmentation and improving the appearance of stretch marks. It also reduces redness and inflammation after laser surgery.

I work outside and my skin has paid the price, this product has made an amazing difference and the Hyaluronic Serum 7 is very calming to my red inflamed spots. Thank you for the quality ingredients in your products."
"The Best By Far...I have purchased vitamin C serums from various companies since it is supposed to help if you are always exposed to the sun. This product is the best by far. The way it makes your skin feel is amazing. It is not oily and soaks right in, but your skin feels incredibly soft after you use it. I started using the LUXE products back in June and I can't begin to say how impressed I am with the entire process. I am hooked."
