Am looking for the superior Vitamin C.

"L-ascorbic acid is very unstable and can oxidase very fast. In higher concentrations, ascorbic acid can be a strong skin irritant due to its low pH and it can also cause excessive peeling.

Another different form of vitamin C, which is Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is a very stable form of vitamin C and does not oxidase easily like L-ascorbic acid does. It is gentle to the skin and non-irritant. It is effective in lower concentrations then traditional L-ascorbic acid and is also a lot more expensive, about 9 times the price of L-ascorbic acid. Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate has also a higher rate of penetration because it is lipid soluble, like the human skin (sebum).

Studies shows that Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate penetrates directly into the epidermis and dermis acting both as an antioxidant and a direct stimulant of new collagen, unlike L-ascorbic acid, which is released into the stratum corneum and protect the skin only as antioxidant."

{Vitamin E and C are like Bonny and Clyde they need each other to be effective.}
