Active Vitamin C Complex

10% Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate - Liquid Vitamin C - is one of the most effective and beneficial cosmetic antioxidants available today. The modified vitamin is released as pure C internally. It is an invaluable, stable antioxidant as it works to protect against UV induced cell damage and lipid peroxidation, two of the strongest contributors to the aging process

Australian summers are amongst the hottest in the world and the more we protect and nourish our skin from the sun, the better it is for our future. One important action of Vitamin C is that it adds extra protection to the skin on a cellular level by increasing the cell survival rate in the epidermis when exposed to UV rays. Exposure to UV rays is the highest contributor of premature aging and potential skin disorders.

Another unique quality of our cosmetic Vitamin C oil-soluble liquid is that it prevents lipid peroxidation. Lipid peroxidation results from free radical damage and also contributes to cell damage and premature aging. Our lipophilic Vitamin C liquid makes it a unique product which is readily absorbed into the skin providing added protection and nourishment



  • Being lipophilic it has superior absorption qualities
  • Exhibits a lightening effect on the skin and may help reduce the appearance of pigmentation
  • Potent anti-oxidant properties protect against DNA cell damage induced by UV exposure
  • Prevents & repairs lipid peroxidation to aid surface plumping & fine lines
  • Protects the skin against exogenous ageing
  • Promotes collagen synthesis and collagen protection to restore & maintain skin youth


15% Terminalia Ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum)

It is vital to maintain the delicate balance of nature by harnessing phyto-actives without damaging the plant’s bio-matrix. Outdated extraction methods (maceration/percolation/powders) place a plant under extreme stress, compromising the integrity of the natural molecules, breaking their bonds and rendering them an inactive extract of decomposed plant matter. CELLULAR EXTRACTION mimics the cell environment and rapidly transfers the full range of naturally occurring water-soluble phytonutrients into a medium that maintains the stability and integrity of the phyto-compounds, as they exist in nature in their synergistic relationships


  • Water soluble, extracted from the Kakadu Plum, the richest source of vitamin C (Superfruit)

      I am so happy i found MD. At the beginning of the year i was suffering with post pill acne for the first time in my life and felt so hopeless with my skin. I had a consult with Mel who made me feel so welcomed and hopeful about what we could do for my skin and even gut health (which was affecting my skin). I then continued to get treatments with tayla, who has been so great every single time. The ladies here are so kind, offer you knowledge about the treatments and take care of you the entire process. I recommend this place to all my friends and family, I LOVE IT. ❤️

    • Suzi Adams

      When I first came to MD Cosmetics three years ago, I wanted skin that was healthy enough to no longer feel like I needed to wear foundation. And I can honestly say that goal came true - I almost never wear make up anymore! Mel and the team always make me feel pampered and comfortable. They have totally changed my skin and I’m so grateful I found this place!

    • Emma Wallace

      I have had several treatments with Nurse Laura Barnes at MD and I am thrilled with the service I received and my fantastic results. Laura is so knowledgeable yet approachable and sweet. Thank you MD! I’ll be coming back for years!

    • Tracey Higgins

      Treated myself to visiting MD Cosmetics & I’m hooked. Can’t go past the Professional & Friendly service offered by Mel & her team. Excellent results. Very happy!!
