What is Ethyated Ascorbic Acid?
Ethylated is one of the many Vitamin C products The Ordinary offers and it targets;
- signs of ageing
- uneven tone
- antioxidant support
Deciem´s simple explanation. Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution (EAA) offers a highly-stable, waterless 15% methylated L-Ascorbic Acid solution to visibly target signs of waging and uneven tone. If you want a highly potent yet gentle Vitamin C, this one is for you.
Unlike other Vitamin C derivatives, this ethylated form acts directly like Vitamin C, is closer in molecular weight to actual Vitamin C which allows for faster visible results. Since this formulation is a water-free solution, it may feel slightly “oily” for a few seconds after application, despite the absence of all oils.

These questions have been answered by Deciem on Social Media.
Can I use Ethylated Ascorbic Acid with Buffet? Ethylated Ascorbic Acid should not be used in the same routine as Peptides.
I found Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% quite harsh. Would Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution be better and more gentle? Yes, The Ordinary Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution would be a much more gentle option that you may wish to explore.
I just ordered the Marula Oil, Hyaluronic Acid + B5, and Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15%. Which order would I use them in? We’d suggest applying HA 2% + B5, EAA 15% and Marula Oil in that order.
Can I use EAA with Squalene in the evening? How about Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% with Squalene in the morning? Yes and yes! We recommend avoiding pure Vitamin C when you are applying Niacinamide in your routine.
Is Ethylated Ascorbic Acid safe to use during pregnancy? And is it ok to use it after Marine Hyaluronics serum? Yes, you can use Ethylated Ascorbic Acid after Marine Hyaluronics. While each ingredient has been tested and is considered safe for topical application. DECIEM products have not been tested on pregnant or breastfeeding women.
