Remarkable benefits of BV-OSC (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate) in our Ultimate Serum: Antioxidant, Whitening, Collagen Synthesis & Protection
We use a novel form of Vitamin C in our Ultimate Serum: BV-OSC or Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. This oil-soluble version of vitamin C is very bio-available and has excellent percutaneous absorption into the skin compared to ascorbic acid. It is able to penetrate keratinocytes to assist with the prevention of UV damage and provide a cytoprotection effect against cell mortality.
Studies show its anti-aging properties, including collagen synthesis. The use of BV-OSC has shown to DOUBLE collagen synthesis in fibroblasts.
It has also been shown to reduce melanogenesis by more than 80%, and inhibit tyrosinase activity, making it an excellent ingredient for brightening and evening out skin tone.
While BV-OSC is decidedly more expensive than other forms of Vitamin C, its benefits clearly outweigh its hefty price.

Collagen is a vital underlying structural support for your skin. As we age, the skin loses that more and more of that support, resulting in a loss of elasticity and firmness. Skin becomes weaker and thinner, and wrinkles set it. Here's how to help prevent collagen loss. Note that both our Ultimate Serum and Phloretin Serum contain ingredients shown to target collagen stimulation.
