Ascorbyl Palmitate is an oil-soluble vitamin C ester formed from ascorbic acid and palmitic acid. It is more stable than the water soluble vitamin C derivatives like Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate. However, it is still prone to oxidation upon a contact with the oxygen atom in water.
