FAQs about Vitamin C in skincare products Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Vitamin C in skincare products


  • What does Vitamin C do for my skin?
    • Brightening: Fades hyperpigmentation, evens skin tone, and gives a radiant glow.
    • Antioxidant: Protects against free radical damage caused by pollution and UV rays.
    • Boosts collagen: Promotes firmer, plumper-looking skin
    • Hydration: Helps skin retain moisture for a smoother texture

Forms of Vitamin C

  • What are the different types of Vitamin C in skincare?

    • L-Ascorbic Acid: Most potent, well-researched form, but also potentially more irritating.
    • Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP): Gentler, water-soluble, good for sensitive skin.
    • Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP): Gentle, good for acne-prone skin.
    • Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate: Oil-soluble, highly stable
  • Which form is best for me? This depends on your skin type and concerns. Sensitive skin may be better suited to SAP or MAP. If you're targeting significant discoloration, L-ascorbic acid might be better.

Using Vitamin C

  • Can I use Vitamin C with other skincare ingredients?

    • Yes, BUT: Avoid mixing it directly with retinol, niacinamide (in some cases), or AHAs/BHAs. This can decrease the effectiveness of these ingredients or increase irritation.
    • Vitamin C + Vitamin E + Ferulic Acid: This combination offers enhanced antioxidant protection for maximum anti-aging benefits.
  • When should I apply it in my routine? Usually, it's recommended in the morning after cleansing and toning, followed by moisturizer and sunscreen.

  • How often should I use it? Start with 2-3 times a week and gradually increase frequency as tolerated.

Stability and Storage

  • Does Vitamin C oxidize? Yes, especially L-ascorbic acid. Look for products in opaque, airtight packaging to minimize exposure to light and air.
  • How do I know if my Vitamin C has oxidized? It will often turn a yellow or orange color. Oxidized products are less effective and could potentially irritate.
  • Where should I store my Vitamin C product? A cool, dark place away from sunlight is ideal. Some even choose to store it in the refrigerator.
