did you get ph strips? You need to check the ph and make sure it is a 3 or below. Mine usually is around 2.5, but it is important that is remains under 3.

LOL, no don't worry. If you followed the recipe exactly you won't have a problem. Normally you want to make sure the ph level is below 3.5-3.0 to be sure the C is effective. But don't worry really. You just don't want your serum to turn yellow or have a smell, if this happens toss it. I usually use mine up in a week so I have never had a problem.

But for future purchases.....
Ph Strips (100)

But really don't worry.

Goatlady, Olysea, & Peri thanks.

Hi everyone,

Can someone direct me as to where to purchase the ingredients to make your DIY Vitamin C Serum? I'm sorry I am a beginner at this stuff and need someone to "hold my hand" through the process - lol!!! I was on garden of wisdom.com but couldn't find Ferulic Acid or Vitamin E Oil and would prefer to purchase everything at one place. Oh and also, what size bottles do you use to store your serum? Thanks! Lynnii

Hi Lynnii...I don't think you can buy everything in one place. At least, I could not. I bought my Ferulic acid from Bulkactives.com & my vitamin E in an health food store.

Fawnie posted the different places in this link http://www.skincaretalk.com/anti-agi...-2009-a-2.html

I am using this bottle G066: 2 oz Amber Glass Boston Round

Hope this helps

Before you guys all go running off to by litmus strips, I just want to confirm what the other's said; if you stick to the recipe's of mine posted here, I have tested them all, and they are all below 3.5 pH.. Some are as low as 2.5

The lower the pH is the better the penetration for L-AA, but some sensitive types could experience a little irritation at first..

No need to worry about pH, unless you make changes.

Ok, I am late to this discussion. Just found the site. I am very interested in the recipe for the Vitamin C serum. I bought the stuff retail for $35.00 YIKES! I tried to find Kassy's recipe on this site but I also have 'search challenges' and not too computer literate. Please help me.

Welcome to the DIY madness.

Consider yourself luky (pun intended) that you only paid $35 for the retail serum. Here's her latest serum with instructions.

Actually $35 is not that expensive, the one I was looking at buying is $135 and there was no way I could justify the price knowing I could make my own for a lot cheaper.
