I have been look on this site to find a simple recipie for a vit. c serum that contains just Vitamin C, ferulic acid and vit. e, w/out all the other extras. Does anyone have one and can I use vit. E capsules or should I order tocopherol acetate (that's the same thing, right?). I tried BulkActives but they are out of ferulic acid. I just don't know what ratios are correct. thank you so much!

You need some other ingredients to dissolve the ferulic (vodka will do) and emulsify the E. Otherwise just use Barefoot's Eazy C recipe and make it fresh each day.

Skinactives.com has ferulic too. You can use the E caps, but I use THIS

Thanks Fawnie, I have really been looking at Kassy's most recent recipie but I didn't want to spend a lot of $. I wasn't really sure about the SKB, vodka and hylaronic acid.Does that make sense? I wanted a to make a simple serum w/ maybe an ingredient to compliment the Vit. C w/out a lot of other things.

You don't really need the HA since the SKB is nourishing and moisturizing enough. The SKB helps the E to emulsify. Now all you need is a bit of vodka!
Be brave!
