For me, putting together a vitamin c serum has been sort of like this:
. Thankfully the good people here have been awesome! I am getting ready to purchase some SKB and liquid hyaluronic acid for Kassey's recipe and need to know the best places to purchase liquid hyaluronic acid. Any response would be awesome!

I'm glad you found it! I hate to buy online, so I went in 3 of my neighborhood drugstores, can't find it, Now I will check under sodium hyaluronate. Thanks to let me know.
I guess I will end up to do some web shopping :-(

I really think you'll have to bite the bullet and buy online. But on a brighter note (sort-of) it seems that lots of people here buy online and don't seem to have any problems. In fact, it appears a lot of people have found their favorite online stores because they have had good luck!

Thank you Peri for the link.

I already did bite the bullet!
and lucky me I never had any problem! I'm trying to avoid the high cost of shipping, sometimes the place I shop has free shipping (limited time) but it's always when I don't need anything.

thanks peri, I was concerned w/the powder because I remember reading somewhere that there was possibly some problems (when creating a vit. c serum) with it balling up. Have you had that problem?

The last Hylauronic acid I bought was from TPF and it was the liquid so I'm not sure how it's going to act.

I have both the liquid and the powder, yes the powder can be a little difficult to work with. Liquid is much easier. The powder tends to clump up into a glob.

Thanks Birdlover, I was looking for liquid HA too. I love the way it sinks into your skin. I am not sure about the strength though. Is 1% is good enough and do you use it directly or mix it with other cream or lotion?

1% is a pretty standard strength for HA.

The ways to use HA Solution:

Cab be added to skin care products you already have, to boost hydration.
Can be used alone, on the skin, if you want.
Can be used as a base for water-soluble actives.
