Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate

L-ascorbyl phosphate

Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (MAP) is an esterified derivative of Vitamin C. Unlike L-ascorbic acid, which is lipophobic (only water-soluble), has low pH, and unstable,  MAP is lipophilic forms of vitamin C, which is stable at neutral pH.

It is one of the most powerful antioxidants for the skin, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate protects against photoaging, UV-induced immunosuppression, or cancer formation. It also increases collagen synthesis, stabilizes those fibers, and decreases destruction.

Like an L-ascorbic acid, it reduces melanin synthesis reducing pigmentation. MAP is the initial defender of tocopherols and acts together with vitamin E protecting against oxidative stress.
