Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant, 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.

The Ordinary's portfolio of Vitamin C includes the following formulations:

Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone
Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%
Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%
Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%
Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%
Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution
100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder

Topical Vitamin C offers a wide array of benefits to the skin. However, many forms of Vitamin C and many more formulations of Vitamin C are available commercially with a potential to confuse the audience. We have developed a guide that offers guidance on the formulations of Vitamin C offered under The Ordinary range. It also offers education on Vitamin C itself and on the differences between formulations of Vitamin C at large. Note: Supplied in UV-protective packaging. Review our quides to Vitamin C products
Apply a few drops to the entire face in the AM and/or PM. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Keep out of reach of children. See how to combine multiple formulations from The Ordinary in a single regimen

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compliments received At first I found it a bit oily but it blended well with my skin. It did not produce acne. Instead, my friends noticed an immediate improvement in my skin quality. Not to brag, but I'm often complimented for good skin and still I received more compliments after I used this product. I didn't really expect much but when friends and family started noticing an improvement they started asking what product I've been using. They couldn't believe that Vit C could be applied in this form. My only recommendation was for them to check out the website and find the product which best suits then. I've tried 6 products so far. While all others were good this was my best bet yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from T-Zone (mainly forehead) Acne I think the product is interesting, but I believe the formulation is way too oily for my face. I never had acne, only small whiteheads here and there. I have the following routine: glycolic acid toning solution + this serum + natural moisturizing factors. Unfortunately I had an acne outbreak in the T-Zone, mainly on my forehead. I stopped using the product for a few days, and then decided to use it again and the same thing happened. Unfortunately it seems that my skin does not accept the product very well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure if it's working I bought this product couple of weeks ago, because my skin concern is dullness and uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, i am using it alternate day at the moment, but it does not penetrate into the skin very well, it makes me look greasy and heavy on my face. One of my routine is, after i cleanse my face, i am using Ordinary Hylauronic acid, then Ordinary Niacinamide, then this product very few drops though. when i apply this, it doesnt penetrate and then i had to massage atelast for couple of minutes. Then again it needs moisturiser on the top, this moisturiser alos will take couple of minutes to get absorbed I am really not sure, whether if this is the right layering, also i haven't noticed any visible changes on my skin. @DECEIM, can you please help me what's going wrong here, On vitamin c guide, it says that it abosrbs within 5seconds, but i can't feel that

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! It is making my 60 yr old skin dewey and clear. My pores look smaller and I don't feel the need to pick at my skin. (you know what I mean)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ... The product in itself is quide efficient, I noticed clear improvement in my skin overall aspect and it caused no irritations. However, the packaging is faulty (the cap does not fit, causing leakage when travelling on two different batches) so I would stay away if you want a product you can transport. DECIEM Response: Thanks so much for your review, we appreciate your feedback and will pass it along to our team to look into. You may also wish to explore our NIOD Pumps which are great for travel and with fit securely on any of our 30 ml glass bottles in The Ordinary :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A game changer... A game changer for me. Consistency of use is key to seeing results with Vitamin C and I just couldn't do it when I was using the Vitamin C Suspension 23%...just too uncomfortable to use and took forever to absorb. This Vitamin F product proved to be a revelation: no irritation or burning sensation and is absorded quickly and completely by my skin. It is more expensive than the other products in the line but the resulting glowing and smooth skin make it all worth it. (I am a woman in my early 50s with normal to dry skin and I live in a cold climate.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... Love this product for the way it makes my skin feel especially in the drier, winter months. Restores a beautiful glow. Could you tell me if I could add a scoop of 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder to add to the discoloration power? I am not seeing as much change as I'd like despite using day/night for quite some time, on my 2nd bottle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ... I took this product as I read good reviews about it but is to oily for me and takes ages to get into the skin . I even ordered 2 bottles . Now I am sorry for it. Can’t use it in the morning at all as I will have to apply make up after 30 minutes . I use other products from this brand and are good but for this one I will have to say pass DECIEM Response: We're sorry to hear your experience with Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F is not what you had hoped. This product is an oil formulation, but if looking for a water-based serum instead you may wish to explore Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution12%.
