Hey guys!

Any recommendations for a good vitamin c serum?

Thanks

The shelf life for it is soo low it'd be best to just make your own.

Distilled water
L absorbic acid
Vegetable glycerin
Photosensitive dropped bottle
Any specific measurements?
Vit c serum isn't measurement heavy recipe (meaning no need to follow exact specifics like if you were baking a cake) so I just eyeball it.

Taken from the 20% vit c serum form.

"1 tsp Vitamin C \t\t(20%) 3 tsp Distilled water Small pinch Ferulic Acid \t(1%) ¼ tsp Vodka ¼ tsp Vitamin E .3ml Optiphen Plus\t\t(1%) Preservative
Disolve Vit C powder in water. Disolve Ferulic Acid in Vodka. Combine together. Add other ingredients. Top up water to make up 30 ml."

I make my own with water, vitamin E oil, the vitamin c powder of course, and propylene glycol.

I notice serums I use don't feel acidic or burning to the skin probably because they have already degenerated...
