The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% is a brightening serum with stabilized Vitamin C derivative. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant, brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of aging. In its pure form, Vitamin C is unstable in water. Ascorbyl Glucoside is a water-soluble derivative of Vitamin C. It is much more stable in water but it is less potent than direct L-Ascorbic Acid. Being more compatible with water allows for a very pleasant serum texture. It is considered a gold standard of Vitamin C derivatives due to its high stability and comfortable use, but it's impossible to achieve extremely high L-Ascorbic Acid potency with this solution. Aside from the general benefits of pure Vitamin C, Ascorbyl Glucoside has been shown to offer specific skin brightening benefits. Overall, this serum brightens skin, improves fine lines & wrinkles, and helps to even skin tone.
Directions: Apply a few drops to face AM and PM, before applying oils and/or creams.
