Why you need it

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% contains a water-soluble form of Vitamin C which is highly stable. This means it can be included in a serum formula that feels comfortable and is easy to use. This form of Vitamin C has specific skin brightening effects, making it ideal for tackling pigmentation issues. Like other forms of Vitamin C, it's a powerful Anti-Oxidant which helps to reduce premature ageing caused by sun damage. It promotes skin's collagen production, helping to keep skin firm and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Skin looks smoother, brighter and younger.

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% is packaged in a UV-protective container to protect the formula and keep the Vitamin C potent and effective.

Key Ingredients

Ascorbyl Glucoside: Ascorbyl glucoside is a water-soluble derivative of vitamin C. It is more stable in water compared to pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), making it a suitable option for skincare formulations. While it may be less potent than L-ascorbic acid, ascorbyl glucoside still offers specific skin brightening benefits. It helps to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone and can contribute to a more radiant complexion.
