The Essential Role of Vitamin C in Healthy Aging Skin Care

The Essential Role of Vitamin C in Healthy Aging Skin Care

Vitamin C has long been heralded as a cornerstone ingredient in the skincare world. This potent antioxidant is a foundational element in the formulations of many products due to its ability to visibly brighten complexions. However, as science advances, we've come to understand that Vitamin C is not a singular entity, but a family of related compounds with varying levels of potency, stability, and skin compatibility.

Among the many forms of Vitamin C, one naturally occurring variant, BV-OSC (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate), distinctly stands out. BV-OSC's unique ability to deeply penetrate the skin's layers sets it apart, providing enhanced benefits compared to traditional Vitamin C. This innovative form of Vitamin C can take your skincare ritual to new heights, especially if you’re interested in maintaining youthful, vibrant skin as you age.


BV-OSC is a fat-soluble derivative of Vitamin C that has been gaining popularity in skincare due to its high bioavailability and enhanced effectiveness in activating the deeper layers of the skin compared to traditional Vitamin C. But why does this matter? It's simple: the deeper the penetration, the more profound the benefits.

This scientifically advanced form of Vitamin C is revolutionizing skincare routines, offering extensive benefits that traditional Vitamin C cannot match. 

Integrating BV-OSC into your skincare routine can bring a multitude of benefits because of its ability to:

Improve Overall Skin Texture and Radiance:BV-OSC works wonders in brightening dull skin and enhancing overall firmness and texture. It helps inhibit melanin production, reducing the visible appearance of sun spots and hyperpigmentation, leading to a more uniform complexion and an illuminating natural glow.

Stimulate Natural Exfoliation: BV-OSC encourages the skin’s natural exfoliation process, a crucial process that keeps our skin looking youthful and firm. As we age, natural collagen production decreases, but with the help of BV-OSC, your skin can maintain its resilience and elasticity. 

Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles: BV-OSC consequently aids in diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a visibly smoother, more rejuvenated look.

Protect Against Oxidative Damage BV-OSC is an antioxidant powerhouse. It helps neutralize harmful free radicals produced by environmental stressors like pollution and UV radiation, preventing much of the oxidative damage to skin cells that can lead to signs of aging.

Enhance Hydration: BV-OSC can improve skin hydration, helping to maintain the skin's barrier function and prevent dryness, which can contribute to the appearance of aging.

BV-OSC Vitamin C isn't merely more potent, it's also gentler and less irritating than other forms of Vitamin C. Despite its mild nature, it's remarkably effective at brightening and moisturizing your skin, promoting a more even complexion and a youthful glow.


At Core Ritual™, we believe that effective skincare should never be a burden, but a seamless addition to your daily routine. That's why we've designed Protect™ – a Vitamin C serum that helps defend against common environmental stresses to reveal naturally radiant skin.

But the benefits of Protect don't stop at providing powerful antioxidant protection. Protect works hard to help diminish the appearance of dark spots to reveal a visibly brighter, more even complexion. It also helps strengthen the skin’s protective moisture barrier, enhancing your natural glow.

The star ingredient in Protect is BV-OSC. Unlike other forms of Vitamin C, BV-OSC doesn't degrade with exposure to light and air, ensuring its efficacy from the first application to the last drop. But BV-OSC isn’t the only powerhouse ingredient in Protect. While BV-OSC blends well with most ingredients, pairing it with other antioxidants like Vitamin E can boost its efficacy.

These ingredients in Protect complement and enhance BV-OSC Vitamin C’s effects: 

Organic Red Raspberry Seed Oil: This oil is packed with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, including Vitamin E. These nutrients moisturize the skin, can calm inflammation, promote even skin tone, and support existing collagen levels. In combination with BV-OSC Vitamin C, organic red raspberry seed oil can help to enhance skin elasticity and firmness.

Organic Black Cumin Seed Oil: Known for smoothing the skin and boosting the efficacy of other ingredients, this oil can enhance the absorption and effectiveness of BV-OSC Vitamin C. It also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that can help combat acne and skin irritations.

Organic Sunflower Seed Oil: Rich in Vitamin E, this oil helps moisturize the skin, even out skin tone, and support youthful-looking skin. When combined with BV-OSC Vitamin C, these two antioxidants can work together to neutralize harmful free radicals, reducing visible signs of aging and promoting a glowing complexion.

Cranberry Seed Oil: This oil is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which help moisturize, smooth, calm, and promote even skin tone. Alongside BV-OSC Vitamin C, it can help to protect the skin from environmental stressors and damage.

Pomegranate Seed Oil and Tomato Seed Oil: These oils are both rich in Vitamin C and other powerful antioxidants. They can work synergistically with the BV-OSC Vitamin C in Protect to amplify its antioxidant, brightening, and skin-protecting effects.

By incorporating Protect into your skincare routine, this potent formula can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a youthful and vibrant complexion.
