Kassy's C+E ferulic serum

What you need for 1oz C,E, Ferulic 15%;
- 2 glass shot glasses
- 1oz cobalt or amber dropper or pump bottle
- 1 tsp L-Ascorbic Acid
- 1/4 tsp (1 ml) Vitamin E (equals 1%)
- .5% of Ferulic Acid (1 good pinch)
- 2 tsp SKB (Sea Kelp Bioferment)
- 3 + 1/2 tsp of distilled water
- 1/2 tsp of vodka (don't laugh, you need it to dissolve the FA so it's not gritty, and it also keeps the ph low enough!)

What to do;

- In first shot glass, put 1 tsp C into the 3 + 1/2 tsp of distilled water. Put on the side, stirring occasionally till FULLY dissolved (This can be anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, so have patience.)

- In 2nd shot glass put in 1/2 tsp vodka, and sprinkle the FA in and mix. (Little formulator spatulas are great for this!) When it has dissolved fully, add in the vitamin E + SKB and stir it all up well.

- When the LAA has fully dissolved in the 1st shot glass, mix the contents of both glasses together, stir very well, and carefully pour into your 1oz bottle.

Keeping it in a cool dry, dark place, or fridge will keep it potent + stable!


Ingredients available @ gardenofwisdom.com or most online DIY suppliers.

I take it fawnie i can just buy cheap vodka as dont drink so silly to buy good stuff? Take it we dont need to measure ph on it or anything too? Also cause we have a light on our ******* fridge is it ok to leave this in the bathroom cupboard or do you think it will get too hot in there and may be to wrapy it up in the fridge in dark plastic bag is better?

Im gonna order my ingredients tonight!!


Thanks fawnie for the recepie seems easy enough i think anyway!

NY, I would definitely order some pH strips as long as you are placing the order. You do need to make sure the serum is 3.5 pH or less or it will not work.

Keep it in the frig to maintain freshness. The frig lite will go off when you close the door. You could decant a small amount into a smaller bottle and keep it in your dark cool cabinet in the bathroom - decant only what you will use in a week so it is fresh.

Yeup, cheap vodka is fine. It is ethanol. Don't get the flavored kind!


Good luck!!

If he will let you! Bear in mind that vit E is not good for oily skin as it will make it too greasy. Leave out the vit E for him if he is oily or blemished!
