The Ordinary's Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% is a highly-stable, water-soluble vitamin C derivative that has been shown to offer enhanced skin-brightening benefits. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that 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.
