    I have got ferulic acide, LA, Niacinamide. Could you recommend a recipe but only with tablespoon dimension? I can find nondenaturated alchol and sea kelp.

    I am afraid of break out due to vitamin e and any oil, don't want to use them.

    sorry my english.

    thank you.

    Hello!

    I have
    L-Ascorbic Acid
    Ethyl-Ascorbic Acid
    Hyaluronic Acid
    Niacinamide
    Ferulic Acid
    Sea Kelp Bioferment
    Vitamin E natural mix tocopherols
    Multi lamellar v1 with carrier oil free and sea kelp bioferment
    Multi lamellar v2 carrier oil & polymer free and sea kelp bioferment
    Multi lamellar v3 with rice bran oil and sea kelp bioferment
    Pure organic coconut oil
    Pure organic shea butter
    Distilled water (In a brown bottle from 2years ago)

    I'll like to make
    SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic serum, simple vit c serum and anything else I could use them for without having to go through any complicated process, buy equipment or additional ingredients. Except perhaps Glycerin and rose water.
    I can measure with teaspoons and ml.

    Thank you.

    hi @gymrat
    in my search for diy vitamin c serum ingredients, i met a supplier of cosmetics additives who also makes his own mixes in Lagos.

    he has a mix of hyaluronic acid gel, arbutin and sodium ascorbyl phosphate (SAP) that serves as both vit c serum and lightener and has a shelf life of 6months.

    i knw SAP is a more stable form of Vit c, but what i dnt knw is if it penetrates the skin as well as L-ascorbisc acid and if it will give d desired vitamin c serum results. Also do you think this mix will work if L-ascorbic acid is used in place of SAP

    what do you think of this mix? yay or nay?

    I've used similar serums before. I just personally have better luck with LAA. But give it a try!

    Hello everyone, I have long time to visit this forum which had learnt a lot! I make a fresh batch of Vit C every morning with just the powder LAA and filtered water.
    I use 1/8tsp (0.6ml) of LAA to 1/2tsp (2.5ml) water, mix till dissolved and apply to face and neck. Can you please help me calculate the LAA percentage?

    Hi Antmagnn, little to none, round about 2% with the amount you are using. I use 1 tsp for round about 15%.

    Are you sure? Think about it, it's a 2.5ml base with 0.6ml LAA. If I had 0.25ml active ingredient to 2.5ml base I would already have 10% percentage. I would check in my scale but I have run out of batteries right now I'm guessing this by volume
