La Clinica Resurfacing Vitamin C Radiance Skin Oil 30%
Seeking luminous, radiant skin or want to combat pigmentation, pollution or UV induced skin-stress?
LA CLINICA’s Vitamin C Potent Antioxidant Oil is a light, non-greasy, intensely hydrating face oil containing 30% Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (Vitamin C derivative) in a base of non-comodogenic plant derived emollients with added Hyaluronic Acid, Boswellia Extract, Vitamin E and Tetrahydropiperine. (for added delivery and efficacy)
Vitamin C is the most prominent antioxidant in our skin. Due to the fact that we as humans lack the enzyme enabling us to synthesise Vitamin C from diet alone, we should supplement our skin with topical applications.
Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is efficient at absorption into the dermal fibroblasts. Studies have shown that the intake of L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) into the skin after the application of Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is considerably higher than the application of L-Ascorbic Acid by itself (in-vitro). This is further boosted with the addition of Tetrahydropiperine used by LA CLINICA to increase permeability and bioavailability of the active ingredients.
Use day and night after cleansing and toning.
Apply 3-6 drops onto face and neck areas using upward strokes.
Follow with moisturiser and eye cream.

Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (Vitamin C)
A stable Vitamin C derivative with powerful antioxidant and anti ageing properties, superior absorption and effectively converts into vitamin C within the skin to perform various physiological functions.
Superior Skin Penetration
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil (Organic)
Jojoba Oil is very similar to the sebum created by the sebaceous glands within the dermis. Sebum is fundamental for skin health. It assists in keeping the skin moisturised, maintains skin elasticity and preserves the skin’s barrier. Due to Jojoba oil’s sebum like qualities it is readily accepted and easily absorbed by our skin and has shown to be effective in enhancing the permeation and efficacy of the active ingredients it is combined with.

Curr Drug Deliv. 2017;14(3):426-432
Jojoba oil exhibits high oxidative stability and is resistant to premature degradation. Studies suggest Jojoba oil accelerates wound healing and stimulates collagen synthesis.
J Ethnopharmacol. 2011 Mar 24;134(2):443-9.
Squalane (plant derived)
A powerful emollient with high oxidative stability found and created naturally in our skin. Squalane has occlusive properties yet is non-comedogenic and assists dry, inflamed skin conditions. It supports the skin’s barrier and has anti-bacterial properties
Chamomilla Recutita (Chamomile) Extract (Organic)
Chamomile extract has strong anti inflammatory affects on the skin. It inhibits nitric oxide production within the dermis. Nitric oxide is a catalyst for inflammatory diseases and is associated with acute and chronic inflammations.
Chamomile extract has anti-oxidant and antimicrobial properties and has shown to enhance wound healing.

Salvia Hispanica (Chia) Seed Oil
Chia Seed Oil contains a potent amount of Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic acid) and Omega 6 (linoleic acid) fatty acids (about 65% of the oil content) which posses strong anti inflammatory action. A study conducted by Annals of Dermatology in 2010 demonstrated that a formulation containing 4% Chia Seed Oil as the active ingredient applied topically soothes irritation, restores the skin’s barrier and moisturises dry and inflamed skin. This Potent Antioxidant Oil contains 4% Chia Seed Oil.
Vitis Vinifera (Grape Seed) OilRosa Canina (Rose Hip) Oil
Assists in scar prevention.
Reduces discolouration both long and short term.
Boswellia Serrata ExtractSodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid)
One of the most renowned, clinically proven humectants that draws in water from the surrounding air and delivers skin-hydration to the outer layers of the dermis.
Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) Tetrahydropiperine
A patented natural permeation enhancer to increase the absorption and efficacy of actives in topical applications.
