DATA SHEET
MAGNESIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Ascorbic acid has several documented physiological and pharmacological effects on the skin. Ascorbic acid acts as an inhibitor of melanin formation and also plays a role in collagen formation. Unfortunately, ascorbic acid cannot be applied to any cosmetic product because of its poor stability. Therefore, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, (MAP) has been developed for cosmetic products. MAP is a water soluble vitamin C derivative, which is stable in aqueous solution, and can be easily formulated in skin care products. MAP is a phosphate ester, therefore, it is easily hydrolyzed to ascorbic acid in the skin by enzymes (phosphatase), and it shows physiological and pharmacological activities.
