So does anybody add HA to their Vit C serum or use if for other serums? TIA!!!
I have the powdered HA as well , but when I was making this particular serum, I had no trouble dissolving the power and it made a nice gel that you add to your serum. I actually like the consistency of this serum versus the new one with the jojoba oil, but am giving the new serum a try at the moment, even though it is a little thinner.
I got the powder from Skinactives but the liquid I got from TPF.Exactly which HA and where did you get it from, Rat? I've made a few mistakes trying to make my serums!! I wanna get it right. Thanks.
I've mixed my powdered HA with water and initially it clumps, but with some time, it finally makes a "serum." It does NOT dissolve easily or immediately! I may try it with my vit c serum.Yes! We were using HA in Kassy's recipe but the measurements were getting ppl confused so I think we moved on Here is a thread that gives the recipe and the entire discussion:
We decided that liquid HA was easier to use. The powder clumps.
Wow. Mine just dissolved and had a few little balls left in it. I stirred well and waited and it finally dissolved. I got mine from SkinActives too.Your a lucky girl, normally it clumps up into one big ball. It just takes a lot of time when working with the powder, to get it to blend well.
Like I said you are a very lucky girl! I don't know anyone who has had much luck with HA in the powder form. Keep it, sounds like you have the winner.Wow. Mine just dissolved and had a few little balls left in it. I stirred well and waited and it finally dissolved. I got mine from SkinActives too.
I have never used it on it's own, I only use it in my C serum.gymrat, can u use the hyaluronic acid from TPF on its own? That is a great bargain for a one ounce HA at 10 dollars, most other commercial places charge around 25 to 50 or more for a half ounce/ounce of hyaluronic acid, which is insane for something that our body makes on its own anyways.
Gymrat, I can't find the SKB at skinactives????? I searched and searched. Is it listed under another name, perhaps? THANKS!!I have never used it on it's own, I only use it in my C serum.
I order a lot from TPF they have great prices. Do you ever order from them?
One thing that chaps my hide-is the price I paid for my SKB!!! Now they sell it for $13 for 2 oz. at skinactives. I paid $45 for 8 oz. I would have been fine with just getting 2oz.
