Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a water-soluble vitamin C derivative. Similar to Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, it works best in a water-based formula with a ph around 7, higher than the ph of healthy skin which is around 5.5.
The antioxidant properties of Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is far below L-ascorbic acid, however, it has a significantly longer shelf life. Although it is still prone to oxidation in contact with the oxygen atom of the water molecule (H2 O), Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is more stable than L-ascorbic acid and Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate.
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate Reduces Acne Inflammation
Numerous studies showed that Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate has anti-inflammatory properties. Like Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, it can help reduce acne inflammation without causing excessive skin dryness. Some studies also suggested that both vitamin C derivatives may be used to improve the general appearance of skin.
Resveratrol Protects Skin From Free Radicals Better Than Vitamin C
Antioxidant plays a critical role in protecting skin from free radicals. Found in the skin of red grape, Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant, stronger than Vitamin C, A, E, Catechin (in teas), Epicatechin (in cocoa), Gallocatechin (in adzuki beans), Gallic Acid (in blueberries), Ellagic Acid (in pomegranates) and Idebenone.
Resveratrol protects skin cells from free radicals, oxidative stress and UV radiation. It helps prevent the degradation of collagen and elastin fibres. With its ability to stimulate skin cells renewal, Resveratrol is greatly beneficial in reducing various signs of ageing including dark spots, dull complexion, wrinkles, lines and sagging skin.
