What is Ascorbyl Glucoside & what does it do?

Deciem´s simple explanation: Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% is a brightening, water-based serum format of the Vitamin C derivative Ascorbyl Glucoside to help visibly target uneven skin tone, dullness, and signs of ageing. Ascorbyl Glucoside has been shown to offer specific skin brightening benefits. It has no conflicts and plays nicely with other products.

How do I use Ascorbyl Glucoside?

  • Ascorbyl Glucoside is a water-based product.
  • Apply directly after cleansing.
  • Put a couple of drops in the palm of your hand and massage or pat the product into your skin.
  • If you are using other water-based solutions, you may apply this first or second. It depends on the skin concern you are targeting. (see faqs below).
  • Ascorbyl Glucoside can be used in the morning and or the evening.

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Conflicts

Please note: Originally the derivatives didn’t have any conflicts. In November 2020, Deciem said the derivatives shouldn’t be used with Niacinamide power or the serum. Now the website just says not to use Niacinamide powder in the same routine.

  • Niacinamide Powder (currently says on the website)
  • In November 2020, Deciem said not to use any of the Vitamin C derivatives with Niacinamide. I am awaiting confirmation of this.

Reviews by the Deciem Addicts

I’m using Ascorbyl Glucoside and loving it!

I’ve been using Ascorbyl Glucoside for about 4-6 weeks so far. Although I haven’t been using it for long enough to see a difference in my skin, I am really enjoying it.

Love it! I picked it because it has no conflicts, and I´m noticing brighter skin.

I didn’t see any difference in my face!

FAQS about The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside

These questions have been answered by Deciem on Social Media.

Should Ascorbyl Glucoside be applied before or after hyaluronic acid?  We suggest using Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution after Hyaluronic Acid.

Can I apply The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% after microneedling? The products have not been tested for use alongside micro-needling; therefore, we are unfortunately unable to offer advice.

Can you use The Ordinary Buffet and Ascorbyl Glucoside solution 12% together? If so, which one would go first? Yes, you can use both together, and you would apply Buffet before Ascorbyl Glucoside.

Right now, I’m using a vitamin C 21%. Can I switch over to The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution? Will Ascorbyl Glucoside make a difference on my skin as I’m used to the high potency of vitamin c? Which vitamin c would you recommend?  As you are an experienced Vitamin C user, you may prefer to explore The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone.

I have been using Mandelic Acid and Niacinamide. I would like to concentrate on my complexion. Would it be good to add The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12? My skin is oily and sensitive. Sounds great! We’d recommend incorporating a Vitamin C, and The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% is an excellent choice.

More Faqs

Is it ok to use vitamin c in the day in the summertime? There are contradictory opinions about this; some say that it protects from the sun (free radicals), and others say it shouldn’t be used in the sun. All of the Vitamin C products can be used during the day. You should avoid unprotected solar exposure.

Which is better? Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% or Ascorbyl Glucoside 12%? If you are a new Pure Vitamin C user, we would suggest starting with AGS 12%.

Can I use Ascorbyl Glucoside 12% with Niacinamide? You can use AGS 12% with Niacinamide.

Can the Ascorbic Acid & Alpha Arbutin be used with Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%?  You may wish to only choose one to apply per regimen to avoid irritation to the skin!
