Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate

Ascorbic acid is the scientific name for vitamin C, and vitamin C really is amazing as it is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants. Unfortunately, it's a nightmare to stabilize in a cosmetic formula, because it's an extremely fragile element. The story behind this is long, but remember that the more effective an anti-oxidant is, the more unstable and fragile it is. In order for vitamin C to be preserved in the jar while waiting to land on your skin, it needs a stable form. To do this, it is combined with a "magnesium phosphate", described in chemistry as a "protective group" (like a kind of Superman). This gives Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, a protected form of vitamin C, which allows you to incorporate it into your cosmetic product until you can benefit from its formidable virtues.
