This wonderful and powerful MAP vitamin C serum is a very potent 15% strength, which is THREE TIMES as potent as most other MAP products on the market today. It's non-irritating, paraben free, and non-comedogenic.
More About MAP (Magnesuim Ascorbyl Phosphate) Vitamin C
MAP is a water-soluble derivative of vitamin C that is rapidly gaining popularity in skin care. It’s stand-out features are that it’s non-irritating, and it’s more stable than L-ascorbic acid. Research is also finding that it appears to be just as effective as ascorbic acid in the stimulation of collagen production.
Overall, MAP appears to be a better choice than L-ascorbic acid vitamin C for people with sensitive skin and those wishing to avoid any concomitant exfoliating effects. Other vitamin C formulas can be highly acidic and therefore produce exfoliation.
MAP vitamin C has been widely used in various cosmetics and quasi-drugs because of its advantageous properties such as inhibitory effects on melanogenesis, promotion of collagen synthesis, and prevention of lipid peroxidation. MAP plays an important role in preventing dry skin, sunburn, chloasma and ephelides, and in keeping the skin healthy and young. 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.
A higher priced active ingredient, but in this case, we feel it is definitely worth the additional cost.

I've been using this serum in place of another Vit c serum I was using. I know the benefits of topical vit c for the skin, and tried many varieties to find a good fit. For whatever reason my skin did not like any other serum. This babyface serum is the perfect fit for me. My skin looks lovely and I tolerate this really well. I would definitely recommend this product. Even if you don't have sensitive skin, this is very effective....also, I never write reviews. I really do want to share my experience. Healthy skin just makes me feel better.
I like the product. I didn’t have any burning or irritation
I have all way love baby-face though the conversion rate makes it expensive I wanted the vitamin c with fruritic acid & peptides but got the MAP one this I find is just as nice
I love the serum only Vit C serum that does not burn my face . Bottle clogged up after 3rd use. Opening top causes early oxidation . PLEASE get a better dispenser. I have asked this before but no changes to bottle .
I love everything about this Serum! It absorbs so well, and is one of the most stable forms of vitamin C, helping my skin combat time, and the harsh elements we face daily. It's helping me to better control my melasma, along with other antioxidants.
