Vitamin C Serum Ester

Featured Ingredient: Vitamin C Ester

When it comes to ingredient sourcing at Root Science, only the best of the best make it into our formulas. When developing our vitamin C serum, we strategically chose a stable, oil-soluble vitamin C ester, which technically goes by the name of tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate. This vitamin C derivative is exceptional for a number of reasons. First, thanks to being oil-soluble, it has a greater ability to penetrate the skin compared to its water-soluble relatives. Second, its stable nature makes it more dependable, meaning your serum stays active longer and is able to effectively deliver on the far reaching promises of topical vitamin C. Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is also known to be a gentler, less irritating form of vitamin C, making it a promising option for sensitive skin. Studies show that topical application of vitamin C has the ability to visibly reduces dark spots, even out skin tone, and brighten complexion. It also promotes collagen production, which helps to diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is prized for its antioxidant activity, protecting against environmental stressors and free-radical damage. It’s no wonder vitamin C has earned a superstar status in the skincare world.

*Our certified organic, skin compatible plant oils provide the purest, most effective, and healthy form of moisture, eliminating the need for synthetic facial creams. Arctic-C is free from essential oils and the faint fresh raspberry scent is a gentle reminder that Mother Nature is present and working in full force to care for your skin. Our oils are not manipulated to remove scent or color – instead we use oils that are in their purest form, to fully preserve their nutrient and antioxidant content – for the benefit of your skin.


Can be used daily AM or PM. We recommend using Arctic-C as an evening treatment to begin with, applying immediately after cleansing and toning. Apply 1-2 pumps of serum to damp face, neck and chest. Allow several minutes for serum to fully absorb. Additional moisturizer can be used after application, if desired. For those with sensitive skin, we recommend applying every second or third day (one or two days rest between application). Your skin is unique, so please experiment to find an application frequency that works best for your individual needs.

We encourage you to use your product within 6 months of opening for optimal freshness and potency. However, when stored under best conditions (away from light, heat and moisture) our products can be safely used for up to a year after opening.
