THE ORDINARY MAGNESIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE 10% 30ML
Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of ageing. In its pure form Vitamin C is unstable in water. Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP) is a water-soluble derivative of Vitamin C. It is more stable in water but it is less potent than direct L-Ascorbic Acid. It is compatible with water but higher concentrations cannot be offered in a low-viscosity serum format and requires emulsification to form a cream.
This formula is a light cream that offers 10% pure MAP (very high solubilized concentration). Aside from the general benefits of pure Vitamin C MAP has been shown to offer specific skin brightening benefits more so than other derivatives of Vitamin C. (Note: some brands offer powder formulations that offer up to 15% MAP. Such powders would offer less direct availability of MAP as compared to an emulsion such as this formula which has solubilized the complete 10% concentration of MAP. It is extremely difficult to solubilize higher concentrations of MAP in non-powder formulations.)

I really didn't know what to expect, but this is truly an amazing product. It applies smoothly, feels super soft on the skin and absorbs very well. Would highly recommend.
Did you find this review helpful?
This solution feels lovely and helps brighten my skin and even out my the tone. My skin looks more radiant and fresher, plus I’ve noticed I’m not getting as spotty around my time of the month. I tend to use quite a few of The Ordinary products now in my skin care regime, and I find most of them are very complimentary to my skin and I just love using them!
This is great - works really well and so much cheaper than what I had been using with the same effect.
