What is Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate and what does it do?
The simple explanation by Deciem
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% (MAP) is a water-based, hydrating cream format that offers specific skin brightening benefits (more so than other derivatives of Vitamin C) in addition to the benefits generally offered by Vitamin C. MAP gets along well with other products and can be used as a hydrating cream to finish off your routine. MAP is incredibly gentle and is a great choice for those who are not experienced users of Vitamin C or those that prefer a cream.
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate Targets
- Uneven Tone
- Signs of Aging
- Antioxidant Support
When & How Do I Use Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate?
You can use this daily in the morning or evening. Apply directly to your skin or after water-based products. As Deciem says, this could be used at the end of your routine as a hydrating cream.
Which products can and can´t be used with Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate?
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate has no conflicts which make it a brilliant product for those of you new to skincare and find all these conflicting ingredients confusing. Ascorbyl Glucoside and Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate are the 2 other vitamin c derivatives that also have no conflicts (except The Ordinary Niacinamide Powder), making them really easy product to slot into your regimen.
Reviews of The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate
Tracy Cherow I loved it! A gentle Vitamin C, easy to apply, but didnt always play nicely under makeup. Awesome texture and I was strangely obsessed with the smell 🤔😍
Jen Crampton This is the vitamin C I recommend to anyone starting out or worried about conflicts. It gets along with most products and is lovely under makeup. For some, it will suffice as a moisturizer.
A great intro to vitamin c 🍊🍊🍊
Nia Patten It’s really lovely. Like an antioxidant moisturizer. My favorite.
Helen, I love this. No need for extra moisturizer so MAP with a drop of resveratrol & ferulic acid and followed by SPF. Nice and simple.

SN says: It has helped my skin since day one, I absolutely love it!
VC says: It’s great. I mix it with The Ordinary Pycnogenol
MC says: I’ve been using it for two months as a light moisturiser for the day and I think it has even out my skin tone a bit… or maybe it’s just my imagination😆. Has a funny smell to it though.
DN says: I have been using it for approx 6 weeks and love it. My skin looks so much brighter but don’t know if it’s the MAP or all the products I have incorporated. It’s my last step in my morning routine before SPF.
CD says: Wanted to love it but does nothing special for me
Can I use MAP under the eyes? MAP 10% is not formulated for use under the eyes.
Can I use Hyaluronic Acid, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, and then suncream as a morning routine? Yes, that sounds great.
I have Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% and Retinol 0.2% today. What´s the best way to apply these? You can apply Niacinamide before Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate in the AM and PM. In the evening you can apply your Retinol 0.2% after Niacinamide but before Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate.
Can you use Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% with EUK 134 0.1%? Yes, you may.
Which of The Ordinary Vitamin C is suitable for sensitive eczema + mild acne skin? None of our products can be considered medical treatments for eczema, you may wish to discuss suitable treatments for persistent signs of eczema with your physician or dermatologist. With this being said, to begin we would suggest starting with The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%.
