That should say skinactives up top. ( I could not edit it )

I am starting to shop around so I can get things to make a DMAE and a Vit-C serum. I was hoping to get everything in one place. That may not be possible though. Is skinactives pretty good to deal with? I see them mentioned quite a bit.

I need ( I think)
LAA, I would have liked the ultra fine powder but I think only Jen at LC sells that and she does not have a lot of the other things.

SKB
DMAE
Feluric Acid
Hyaluronic Acid (the liquid)
Something to measure cc's

Am I forgetting anything? Oh and I am VERY sensitive to alcohol can I use anything else to dissolve the feluric ?

TIA everyone.

3 more weeks and I can do my next TCA peel ! Whoooooo hooooo

In my quest to make my diy serum, I narrowed my order down to two sources. It just wasn't possible to use one source based on the ingredients. I got the LAA at LC and all other ingredients at Skinactives. If I recall correctly, neither of these places have the liquid HA, you may need yet another source for that, not certain? As far as skipping the alcohol, I use propylene glycol, which I got from LC, to dissolve my ferulic. Some even suggest butylene vs propylene glycol (safety reasons). Hope this helps!

Lasvegasdeb, you could actually skip the HA(liquid) and go for the jojoba oil that everyone is loving in their serum instead. I am actually using the jojoba oil in my serum now as well.
