The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% is a high-strength, oil-solubilized Vitamin C derivative in Vitamin F. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of aging. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is an oil-soluble derivative of Vitamin C that can be used in higher concentrations without drawbacks. It is one of the most stable derivatives of Vitamin C but, being a derivative, its potency will not be directly comparable to pure L-Ascorbic Acid. It is provided in this oil-format formula in combination with Vitamin F, also known as essential fatty acids. Aside from the general benefits of pure Vitamin C, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmiate has been shown to offer specific skin brightening benefits. Overall, this solution brightens skin, improves fine lines & wrinkles, and helps to even skin tone.
Directions: Apply a few drops to the entire face in the AM and/or PM, ideally after water-based treatments.
Ingredients: Coconut Alkanes, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Ethyl Linoleate, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract, Squalane.

Easily absorbed by the skin. I am using this everyday together with the squalane. I can see the brightening effects. I love it that my skin gets ample vitamin C without the harsh feeling. I have combination skin but more on the dry side and I did not experience any irritation.
