Both magnesium chloride dissolved in distilled water and ascorbic acid dissolved in distillled water have been separately shown to have a number of health benefits when applied topically to the skin.

I am wondering if these will react if they are both dissolved in the same container?

Thank you

    $\begingroup$ Depends on what you consider by reacting. There's gonna be a bit of chelation equilibrium going, but it may be beneficial. $\endgroup$ – Mithoron Aug 17 '18 at 22:52
