The distinct multi-purpose nature of Vitamin C makes this antioxidant a miraculous ingredient for the skin. A potent anti-aging powerhouse, Vitamin C works to help guard against free-radical damage and environmental aggressors while supporting meaningful improvement in clarity, tone, and skin quality. Vitamin C has the potential to transform skin – its power to bring a textured complexion to clarity and to imbue lackluster skin with luminosity is a key to the celebrated Retrouvé radiance!



The oil-based, collagen boosting Vitamin C that we utilize in our products – Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate – is known to have a higher rate of penetration than the more widely-used ascorbic Vitamin C, as it is lipid-soluble like human sebum. Clinical studies show that Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate delivers pure Vitamin C at an impressive rate of 50 times better than ascorbic acid.

An essential ingredient for a vibrant complexion, we incorporate our lipid-soluble Vitamin C in most of our moisturizers for the body and face, including Baume Ultime Body Oil, Dermal Defense Hand Cream, Intensive Replenishing Facial Moisturizer, Dynamic Nourishing Face Cream, and Nutrient Face Serum.



Skin-supporting Vitamin C plays a starring role in our Nutrient Face Serum, which contains our collection’s highest concentration of the potent antioxidant. 

Nutrient Face Serum is our most universal hydrating product, as it is helpful for nearly all skin types. This transformative formulation is excellent for anyone who prefers a lightweight – yet potent and luxurious – serum and is concerned about or already experiencing signs of aging. Nutrient Face Serum is often the Retrouvé moisturizer of choice during summer or for those with an oiler complexion who desire the benefit of our highly effective synergistic blend of skin-improving ingredients without a lot of added moisturization.



While this amazing vitamin works overtime, it can easily degrade when exposed to the elements, which is why we package our products in innovative airless containers with air-tight pumps. Such purposeful packaging serves to protect the integrity of the ingredients in order to deliver the most efficacious and beneficial formulation possible.
