How do I use Ascorbyl Glucoside?

  • Ascorbyl Glucoside is a water-based product.
  • Use in the morning and evening
  • Apply directly after cleansing.
  • Put a couple of drops in the palm of your hand and massage or pat the product into your skin. Be sure it´s fully absorbed before applying the next product.
  • 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).

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Conflicts

This one keeps changing!

  • Niacinamide Powder (currently says on the website)
  • This product had no conflicts at all until November 2020.
  • In November 2020, Deciem said not to use any of the Vitamin C derivatives with Niacinamide serum or powder.
  • 2021 Deciem said if you have no irritation, you can use Niacinamide serum and Ascorbyl Glucoside together (not powder).

I’m using Ascorbyl Glucoside and loving it!

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

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.

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%.
