" Numerous studies showed that magnesium ascorbyl phosphate has anti-inflammatory properties, however, it is less potent than L-ascorbic acid."
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a water-soluble vitamin C derivative. It works best in a water-base formula with a ph around 7. It offers a more stable form of vitamin C, however, the antioxidant properties of magnesium ascorbyl phosphate is much weaker than those of L-ascorbic acid.
L-ascorbic acid is by far the most effective vitamin C with the greatest capability of neutralising free radicals. By mixing it with ferulic acid and stabilised vitamin E, the stability and efficacy of L-ascorbic acid will be improved significantly. In multi-award-winning Antioxidant Youthful Essence, I use a synergistic fusion of L-ascorbic acid, ferulic acid, stabilised vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5 to revitalise and protect the skin from free radicals, pollution and premature signs of ageing.
" This is amazing! I noticed a difference round my eyes after the first application. My skin felt tighter and firmer after just a couple of days."

Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate Reduces Acne Inflammation
Numerous studies showed that magnesium ascorbyl phosphate has anti-inflammatory properties. It helps reduce acne inflammation without causing skin irritation. However, with over 2 decades experience in formulating skincare products, I prefer to use L-ascorbic acid than magnesium ascorbyl phosphate to calm down the acne inflammation. Studies showed that L-ascorbic acid calms acne inflammation, boosts skin renewal, prevents post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. If you suffer from acne, apply Antioxidant Youthful Essence to freshly cleansed face every morning and evening. This all-skin-types complexion repair pre-serum elixir speeds up skin cell regeneration, restores radiance and helps prevent acne scars.
" ... a radiant complexion in a few days, and firmer, younger-looking skin over time."
