As part of our commitment to innovation, our Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% is currently being reformulated.

While we work on improving this formula, you may wish to explore Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F, or Vitamin C 23% Suspension + HA Spheres 2%.

Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% is a rich formula designed to help reduce signs of aging by brightening and balancing uneven skin tone. Unlike direct forms of vitamin C, this cream contains a water-soluble vitamin C derivative that converts into vitamin C once applied to the skin. This gives it less irritation potential. And because it has advanced antioxidant properties, it also protects your skin from the visual effects of damage caused by environmental stressors.
