Hi. I have tried to look for tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate to make the LIPOIC ACID DMAE & TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE cream, but I can't find anywhere that sells it. I have checked all the links in this forum, as well as the link Dr. Todorov provided in the DIY skincare package, but I cannot find it there either. Did I overlook it? And since I cannot find it, can I replace the tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate with the more easier to find L-asorbic acid powder? Or will it not work with the Lipoic Acid & DMAE mixture? If I can use the L-asorbic acid power in the mixture, how much do I need to add to the Lipoic acid and DMAE mixture?
Thank you very much. I really enjoy this website.

Are there any clinically significant differences between Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate and Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate?
Thanks!
Mike

No. Actually the same substance is often called by both names, even though it is not strictly accurate from the standpoint of chemical nomenclature. In any case, they seem to be interchangeable as far as skincare goes.

What is the maximum concentration of Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate that would make sense to apply to the skin? Would there be any reason to put Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate and some other form of vitamin C in the same topical preparation?
Thanks!
Mike

There is at least one study where the combo was used w/o any seeming problems. They used 7% of tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate and 10% ascorbic acid. However, typical commercial formulas use 2% tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, so experience with higher concentrations relatively small.
