Other potent anti-aging vitamins

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C) 
While not same as regular Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), this form of Vitamin C may stimulate healthy collagen production and may reduce wrinkle depth.

Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (water soluble Vitamin C) 
This ingredient helps to limit oxidative stress, which occurs when cells sustain permanent damage from free radicals in sunlight and the atmosphere. Applied to the skin, sodium ascorbyl phosphate can help slow down the aging process and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

Bakuchiol - Vitamin A Substitute
Bakuchiol is an antioxidant found in the seeds of the plant psoralea corylifolia (commonly known as the Babchi plant). Bakuchiol has a retinol-like effect on the skin without the risk of irritation and photosensitivity.
