Best Forms of Vitamin C Knows from vitamin c products manufacturers :
Purest form of Vitamin C, L-ascorbic acid is followed by sodium ascorbyl phosphate (SAP). The latter performs best in the formula with a ph around 7, a huge contrast to L-ascorbic acid which needs a ph below 4 in order to be most effective.
In terms of being stable, Sodium ascorbyl phosphate is far more stable than its purer counterpart. For this same reason, introducing and using L ascorbic acid is slightly tricky and can cause opposite effects to skin, while SAP is comparatively easier to adjust to and use.
Other forms include ascorbyl palmitate, retinyl ascorbate, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. These aren’t the purest, but when combined with other complimentary ingredients, can help deliver great benefits to skin.

Using Vitamin C:
Vitamin C can pretty much be used everyday as part of skincare routine and works amazingly well when combined with ingredients like Vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid among others.
Vitamin C is potent, so you only need a few drops for every application. Therefore, it’s best to start out with a low concentration and work your way up as your skin grows more accustomed to the ingredient.
A good rule of thumb is to cleanse your face, tone, apply vitamin C serum, and moisturize.
Don’ts of using Vitamin C
Don’t use Vitamin C with benzoyl peroxide which can oxidize it, other acids, which can cause excessive skin irritation, and with retinol, which can make the vitamin C more unstable and less likely to penetrate the skin. It should also not be used with Niacinamide as it can make Vitamin C less effective.
Vitamin C breaks down when it’s exposed to light or air, so dark glass bottles help maintain its stability (and therefore efficacy), which is why you’ll always find and should keep Vitamin C products away from sunlight.
People with sensitive skin should avoid Vitamin C as it can potentially irritate their skin. However, the best way to test is to either do a patch test or try using lower concentrations in low frequency.
