Vitamin C Serum Kit

 The new vitamin c serum kit is here so you can make up a fresh batch for yourself at home.

At  this time I have stopped putting these kits together....

At this time we are only shipping in the USA.

$15.00 with Free Shipping in the USA.

The kit comes with ascorbic acid.

Ascorbic Acid 20 ml (4 teaspoons)

Vegetable Glyerine 2oz

This is the simple recipe. But do not forget that you can ad the ascorbic acid to your own base cream after you have it dissolved.

Make sure you first test this recipe on your arm for a week to before using it on your face. If any irritation develops, discontinue its use.

---------------------------------------------------------------

As you find different recipes I would be glad to post them at Natural Skin Care Info. And Let me know how it works on your skin type.

Vitamin C Serum Kit

Sent In Information and Questions

----------------------------------------------------------------

: How many uses will you get out of this kit?

Wayne

This kit will last 1 month

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: Thank you for your kind response. Yes, each capsule has 1000 mg of Ascorbic ACID and 60 mg of rose hips. It doesn't say which type of ascorbic acid is, though, because you make a clear distinction between type L and type D. I would like to find out where to find type L.

Wayne

All ascorbic acid that you can get has both the L and D in it. It is that, it is the L that works on ones skin and as a supplement for food.

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: Hello, thank you very much for this recipe. I would like to know if you can use the ascorbic acid you find in VITAMIN C supplements. You can basically open up a capsule and use the powder inside of it, it's exactly ascorbic acid, right? Please let me know. I was fooled into buying orange VITAMIN C serums that smell like orange :-(

Wayne

If the ingredients list on the bottle, list it as ascorbic acid it will work.

----------------------------------------------------------------

: do you need to ware sun screen with vitamin c products?

Wayne

Yes you should use at least a PF 15 or more. We always get the water prof. Even though you may not be in the water you will be prepraird.

: I added two teaspoons of CeraVe to the Vitamin C mixture. So far I am really pleased.

Wayne

Thank you for taking the time to send in your tip!!!!

------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: What product can I purchase that has the best amount of the ingedients you suggested.

Wayne

I am looking for feedback on this question. What do you all think!!!

---------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: excellent to learn to make vitamin C serum let me try it

Wayne

Let us know how it works on your skin......

----------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------

: Hi Wayne,
Thank you for such an informative article. I do have a question I was looking for the link to purchase the vitamin 'c' and found the link to a sponsor Vitamin C 23% Serum Sale by CELLBONE TECHNOLOGY.

On reading there directions and product info they state the following 3/4 of the page down.

Note:
The L-Ascorbic Acid in the C23 High Potency C- Serum will oxidize and darken with time. This natural oxidation will not significantly alter the effectiveness of the product. Freshness Guaranteed

As per your instructions you suggest discarding the home made product once it changes color and oxidizes but here they state that it does not change the effectiveness of the product. I am confused!

Stomy Nicholson

Wayne

Well the Ascorbic Acid information can be confusing. But All of the reading that I have done has said that the ascorbic acid does not last long. That it what started Nicholas Perricone into finding a way to make it last. He worked on the Vitamin C Ester that would last. Now to get even more information and a better understanding his book "The Wrinkle Cure" is a good read. Sometimes it went over my head but I did get the a lot better understanding about it. You will find my book review here.

Skin Care Book Reviews

------------------------------

I will post your tips soon!!! Thank You Wayne'r: Hi wayne, I sent an e-mail regarding vitamin c and your formula / specifications. Every thing you mentioned in your article sounded correct. However a sponser stated at least I think the opposite of what you mentioned , I left a comment I was confused .
Now I am unable to find a response on your site. Hopefully I did not offend you with my question. Hopefully you can clear this up for me

Best regards

SN.

Wayne

Hope you found this post and let me know what you think of the book "The Wrinkle Cure"

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: I am wondering if fruit fresh can be used as the ascorbic acid in the recipe you gave above? Thanks

Wayne

As for as I can tell to get enough vitamin C out of fresh fruit you would be placing a lot of citric acid on your skin and you my be sensitive to it. check out the ehow.com/how_5058113 link below.

----------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------

: Each capsule contains:
More-CTM Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)….…...1,000 mg
From DSM Quali-CTM
EXCIPIENTS
Beta-carotene, food glaze, talc, tartaric acid, titanium dioxide, gelatin, confectioners sugar how about using these capsule of vitamin c from jamieson in a normal moisturizer or mixing it with vitamin E capsule.

Wayne

Well for the Vitamin C.. 1 level tsp of ascorbic acid is 4500mg. And for diet it is suggested 1/2 tsp daily with meals. So If you take one capsule a day would would come up short 5750mg. This info is from msm-msm.com.

Now if we use this in making up a face serum lets see. 1/4 tsp as in the serum..1125mg of ascorbic acid. so this is close to what is in the recipe. As for the other parts to the capsule for the skin I'm not sure. The old copy and past in the search box would be the way to go.

We do know that vitamin E is good for the skin so I would give it a try in a patch test first before using it on my face. And for sure let us know how it goes.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------

: Cool ideas but what do you mean by "local chemist store"?

Wayne

Dr. Jo is down in Australia and they my call pharmacy " local chemist store" If some one stops by from Australia let us know.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------- : Dear Dr. Jo,

Can I add Lavender Oil to my Vitamin C serum without contamination?

Thank you,

Jenna

Wayne

Hi Jenna
I have a link to Dr. Jo's website at the top of the page if you would like to ask her as well. But I think you would be better off adding the Lavender Oil to your face cream that you would put on after the Vitamin C Serum.

Make it up in small batches though. Lavender will go bad in a short time when it is mixed with other ingredients. Especially when you add it to a bath salts.

----------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------

: Wayne,
I just ordered the vit c kit. I noticed the paypal page opens up in same window, you can switch it to pop up in a new window that way people can stay within your site.

I look forward to trying this. Hope it works.

Thanks
KD

Wayne

Thank you for the help. I will have time this weekend to make this helpful change. I'm looking for an order for a KD and can not find one. Have you ordered it under and other name.. Have a good weekend.

Wayne

Thank You.... it took me a little but I got it to work!!!

----------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------

: Is this kit good for one week once mixed? I hear alot of people do not like the glycerin. Can I add this to something else? Also, what can I mix for my eyes? or do I need to buy something made in a lab.

Thanks

Wayne,

The kit has enough balk ingredients for 6 to 8 weeks. As for the glycerin you can also use KY-jelly or Curel Continous Comfort Lotion. For my skin I use 1/2 of a teaspoon of the glycerin in the recipe. But that is for my skin and you would want to test it on your skin in a pacth test as always.

As for around your eyes see how it goes for the rest of your face. You do have to be careful with the skin around your eyes. For now you may want to use your cream from the lab.

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: Wayne,

Does this kit come with L Absorbic Acid? Just ordered in doing more research it is calling for L Absorbic.

Hi,

The kit comes with absorbic acid. Here is the hard part with absorbic acid. Like a lot of vitamins there are different parts to the one vitamin. The two parts are L and D for absorbic acid. The cost to seperate the two is very costly I'm told and I have not found anywhere that has it. I'm not saying it is not out there but I have not found it.

Now there is a form that has too come with a compound when it is shipped to the US. It is called a Certificate of Analysis or COA for short. Now when I have asked to see their COA when thay are selling just L absorbic acid it looks just like the COA's for just absorbic acid to me.

The L is the part that is studied in skin care. The D as far as I know has not.

If you find out any more information please send it on.

----------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------

: Hello,

Should I keep the serum in the refrigerator? How long will it keep before having to make a new batch?

Thank you.

Linda

Wayne

This is what I do. not saying it is the best but it is what I do. Each week I make up a new batch. And I keep it in the drawer in our bathroom. As of to date it has always stayed clear by the end of the week. I am sure keeping it in the fridge may keep it longer but I do not like to put it on cold.

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: I bought Vivier Vitamin C serums they use L-Ascorbic Acid (USP) pharmaceutical grade and have a patented delivery system called the IDS Intra Dermal System. They have 30 months of stability which is amazing my serum is clear and my skin looks amazing! You can check it out www.vivierpharma.com.

Sally

Wayne

Here are their list of ingredients

Ethoxydiglycol, Propylene Glycol, Water/Eau, L-Ascorbic Acid USP, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Extract, Fragrance/Parfum.

On the first page it is listed as L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)

It would be hard for me to tell if it is just L-ascorbic acid or not by this list. As for the other ingredients... I open up another web page. Then copy and past each ingredient in the search box. And read through the different websits to see what is said about each one.

Why it last so long, I'm not sure but the one way to tell is staying clear and not turning yellow.

Thank you for taking the time to send in this tip...

----------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------- : Can you use fresh lemon juice for your absorbic acid (vitamin C)?

Wayne

Here is a good article for the use and of lemon juice and your skin.

If your skin is sensitive to the citric acid in lemons, you may desire to dilute the lemon juice with a bit of water rather than use it full strength..
It is not advisable that you apply lemon juice to your skin before sun exposure as it makes the skin more sensitive to the sun.

: I have started using obagi vitamin c serum (20%) at night. As my moisturizer i use neutrogena, which has retinol. Does the retinol oxidize the vit c?

Thanks alot. S

Wayne

I,m not sure what other ingredients are in the Neutrogena. You would want to look for any metals that may be listed. As they will oxidize the Vitamin C. If any one has a list of metals that are used in creams and lotions that would be great. Then we could look for them on labels...

You could do a test by mixing the two and leave it in a jar for up to a week. See if it turns yellow. This is not the best if teats but it may give you an idea how the two are reacting. I would not mix the two and use on your skin!!!! Just a test

With homemade skin care you know what ingredients you are putting together, when using products that are already made it is hard to tell what is in them. Not being a chemist it is realy hard for me to know. That is one of my reasons for getting into homemade skin care.

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: I have a question. When making yr own topical Vit C, can you add a touch of pure Damascena rose oil or would that contaminate? Rose petals contain estrogen and is transferred into the oil when extracted. A thought would be to apply both separately on top of each other if the combination allows for it.

Wayne

In articles that I have read one would wait a few minutes for the serum to absorb and then apply a small amount of moisturizer of your choice. I have also read a lot of good reviews on rose oil.

I would not mix the two but apply it after. As always do a patch test with any recipe that you make up that is different or new to your skin.

----------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------

: Hi, sorry I just posted the question about the MAP, but I wanted to ask something else perhaps you can just tag this one on to the original message.

I've been looking at some different Vit C serums online and they all had ferulic acid or vodka or sea kelp bio ferment. Are these necessary for penetration into the subdermis? Or are the ingredients you have here all that is really necessary to effectively penetrate the skin?

Wayne

As far as I know you do not need these other ingredients. I think these other recipes that you have found are just another spin on the plan simple recipe.

This would be a good question to send on to Dr. Jo. She may be able to give you more reasons for these ingredients.

----------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------- : Hi Wayne, I posted before about using MAP instead of LAA. I tried out the recipe you suggested and it turned out very thick and jelly like, just wanted to check if this was normal? Is 3 teaspoons of glycerin too much perhaps?

Many thanks!

Wayne

I know for me when I make up the recipe from Dr. Jo, I make it up with only 1/2 of a teaspoon of glycerin instead of a full teaspoon. This does not clog my pores and is less sticky. The recipe that I found for the MAP, I thought it was a lot of glycerin as well. As always do a patch test with any recipe that you make up that is different or new to your skin.

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: I bought normal powdered ascorbic acid, would this be all right? Also, can I just add a small amount of ascorbic acid to my normal cream when I put it on at night?

Wayne

Yes just dissolve 1/4 of a teaspoon ascorbic acid in 5 ml of water (preferably distilled), in small glass container using a stirrer. Make sure it is fully dissolved before you mix it into your cream. As always do a patch test before using it on your face.

At this time the only lotion that I have read that is good to use with ascorbic acid is Curel Continous Comfort Lotion.
Let me know if your cream is working for you.

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: Hi its kikka again, I have been reading alot on Synergy Tk as the new wonder ingredient what can you tell me about it and also eye creams? what is the best to use and can I use lanolin cream under my eyes or will I clog my pores?

thanx Kikka

Wayne

I will be on the look out for information on Synergy TK...it is a new one on me

As for creams that you put around your eyes you have to be careful. The skin is very tender.

----------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------

: hi I have been making my own serum for a few months now and I feel it is working, I'm not sure if I can put retinol A on top and also there is a store that sells 20% vit C serum which is stabilised, can I have a recipe for a 20-23% vit C serum?

also I have been putting fresh carrot juice on my face. Tell us more of your secret, tried and tested recipes, some of us cannot get enough.

thanx Kikka

Wayne

As going over the 10% vitamin c recipes I would say you are better off makeing a fresh batch at 10% than buying one that clames to be higher. Even though they are claming to be higher it is hard to get it there. A good source is The Wrinkle Cure By Nicholas Perricone, MD. He worked on the Vitamin c Ester. This is a good book on the vitamin c and the skin.

As for recipes when I find them or they are sent in I will post them.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: I think for me the magnesium ascorbyl phosphate is a better choice as I want the collagen boosting without the daily exfoliation that ascorbic acid would cause.

Would the formula ratios you give be the same if I were to use magnesium ascorbyl phosphate instead of ascorbic acid? If not, do you know how it should be altered?

Thanks in advance.

Wayne

One recipe is all most the same. It is 1 to 1.2 g which is 1/4 of a teaspoon. Although with this magnesium ascorbyl phosphate the power often will varie so it is recommended using a scale. 1 teaspoon of distilled water. Dissolve the MAP in the water, It will start out opaque, keep mixing. You may have to place the glass jar into a pot of hot water. Then mix in your 3 teaspoons of glycerin. Unlike the vitamin c serum you cannot use a cream or lotion because the MAP would curd or liquefy them.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------

: Is it normal for the dissolved ascorbic acid to crystalize back into it's powder form on your face once the base dries off?

Wayne

I mix it this way...I first put in 1/4 teaspoon of ascorbic acid in my jar, then I add 1 teaspoon of real warm water and mix it together making sure it is dissolved then I add the glycerine.

The ascorbic acid that I have is finer than sugar (some ascorbic acid does come in a larger grain) and has not crystalize back into it's power form for me.

Even if mixing ascorbic acid in a base cream I will still dissolve it in warm water before mixing in the cream.

What are you using as your base. For me the glycerine does not dry off.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------

: I've tried this a couple of time now, and I really hate the glycerin on my skin it made it really sticky and uncomfortable. And for some reason makes my skin go bright red, but when i tried it with no glycerin and double the amount of water it seems fine (so far), plus feels so much nicer!

Can this help with red marks left behind after acne? This is the issue I'm dealing with and some scarring as well.

It says in the article that it doesn't work for everyone, how long should you give it to see if it's going to work for you?

Thank you!

L

Wayne

I am on the look out for a good base cream that the Ascorbic Acid can be added to help out with this sticky feeling that some people do not like.

After 4 to 6 weeks one may want to try other recipes or products. I can not say if it will help with red marks left behind after acne. If I were you I would send a note to Dr. Jo and see what she has to say.

------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: This information has been very informative and insightful. I will try to locate a Chemist store to purchase the necessary ingredients. I recently heard about the Vichy product, where they provide you with the kit and you mix it yourself and store in the fridge for no longer than 30 days. Is this a good product.Also you indicate vitamin E, do you apply vitamic C and E together or a separate times and when.

Thanks

Wayne

Well I do have a kit here but as long a you give us your recipe that you are using and how it is working.

I have not seen The Vichy product but will look into it.

I have read in blogs of people mixing the two and using it at night. Just use the patch test before using it on your face. Most of the info I have seen is using it at night,

--------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------

: i have purchased vitamin c with rose hips the ingredient is asorbic acid can i use this to make serum?

Wayne,

Is it in a powder form?

Make sure that it is dissolved before adding it to your base. And use a patch test to make sure it is ok for your skin.

---------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------

: I have recently added copper peptides to my routine and have read that I should not use them at the same time as vitamin c serums as they will neutralize. Are there any other products I shouldn't mix with the vitamin c serum? I am planning on using the vitamin c serum in the morning with an acne treatment consisting of salicylic acid and tea tree oil and then the copper peptides and retinol products at night.

Thanks!

Wayne

I was looking to find where I saw a note about not adding any kind of metal with a Vitamin C Serum. I do remember is saying NOT TO. I beleave it is that the oxidation With the Vitamin C and the metal any metal will be very fast. One sign will be that it will turn yellowish in tint. Although the absence of a tint does not guarantee the lack of oxidation. You may want to send a note over to Dr. Jo to see what she has to say. You will find a link at the top of the page.

---------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------

: Hello,
I tried to order using the link you provided. I am connected directly to pay pal or a credit card payment site. This seems strange, as I have given no delivery address, or determine how many kits I want. What is up with this.

Thanks,
Sean Mc Evoy

Wayne

When I put the Pay Pal buttom together I was thinking that people would be buying only one kit at a time. You are given lines to fill out your address and other information. I will change the button so people can buy more than one kit. I just checked the buy button and it seems to be working and we have filled orders with it.

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: I would like to try this Vitamin C.

Wayne

If you do get the kit let me know what you think...

----------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------

: hi I tried making vitamin c serum as on this site, and it is fantastic! but there's only one problem. Pillow and bed sheets and my white T-shirt (around the neck line) had turned yellow because of the serum on my face. I tried washing it off but the stain is still there. It will be soooooo perfect if the serum does not stain.^^

Wayne

Have you tried putting on a moisturizer on top of the serum at night? Or may be putting it on in the morning. Any more help on this would be great...Send them in.

----------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------

: Hi, my name is Amber and Im a young 27 year old women. I dont know much about this stuff and Im sure not a chemist. But I've read your article and Im very interested in what your creating. I dont know if I could make this at home on my own since I have no real experience but I would love to try. I have always hated my skin tone and texture. Im very dry and I have large pores. But I was told to try some serum with vitamin C. I have been looking on-line at medical and beauty sites and they all have one thing in common. Very high prices. Im hesitant to buy these products not knowing if it will work. I just dont want to be disappointed.

please let me know what you think.

Thanks.

Wayne

Hi Amber

I know the prices of some of the skincare products can be a little pricy. However, I have tried to put together this vitamin c skin care kit and keep it at the lowest possible price. It is easy to mix the ingredients(there's only 3 ingredients) and they will stay fresh as long as you use it within a week and keep it refridgerated. There is a French Green Clay Mask included in the kit and it addresses oily skin along with larger pores.

Thanks for the note!

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: I would be interested in the kit. Let me know when ready. Ann

Wayne

Hi Ann from this comment box it will not leave me your email address. If you leave an email address that you would like me to get back to you I will not post it, but will post comments and will email a response. Thank you for the note.

---------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------

: Thank you very informative!

--------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------

: Hai. Since Vit C is unstable and can be easily spoil so how about substitution of grape seed oil as moisturiser as it contain both Vit E 50x and Vit C 20x and Linoic acid ? They are important components of anti-aging. Your ideas will be appreciated.

Wayne

I think grape seed oil would be great and was thinking of ading it to the kit. Also grape seed oil also mixes good with water along with sunflower oil. At this time I was looking for a good base cream or lotion, thinking people would like a crean over an oil.

Jena

You are welcome. I replace base cream with hyaluronic acid as it can penetrate deeper into our skin and act also as carrier of other anti-aging ingredients! My skin improves tremendous within 1 months upon introduction of hyaluronic acids! I receive many compliments.� I shall check on sunflower oil� and other vitamin c serum to know their effectiveness.What are your other routine?

Regards,

Jena

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: i think emu oil (if it is still around) would be a perfect "serum"-textured base

Wayne

This is the base lotion that we are trying now and may become part of the kit.

Samis MSM Lotion w/Emu Oil

Sami's MSM lotion with the added benefit of emu oil for better skin penetration. The ingredients are Distilled Water, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera)Leaf Juice, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil) Seed Oil , Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower Oil) Seed Oil, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM 19%), Emu Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Liquid Polymer *, Phenonip**, Fragrance (Only in Warm Vanilla and Fresh Apricot)

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: I would be very interested in purchasing your vitamin c serum kit containing the products you mentioned and an appropriate dark bottle with a dropper to apply.

Thank you,
Jill Trimble

Wayne

Thanks for the comment. The bottles will be a dark green. We were thinking of including a mixing spatula and a quarter tsp. measuring spoon.

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: Let me know when you have the kit. What about adding a herb that tones the skin also? I know Vitamin C tones, but another good one. I have a few in mind, but I'll leave that for you. Its your deal.

thanks,

I'll be waiting.

Wayne

Not one active ingredient will work on all skin types. I'm looking to put together kits for these different skin types as well. Starting with vitamin c and going from there. So if you have any ideas I would be glad to hear them. And post for the readers here at Natural Skin Care Info

-----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------
: Hi I use KY-jelly over the glycerin. I also found it was sticky and that I was not using it. With the KY-jelly I use it all the time. Thanks Tina

----------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------

When will the vit c serum kit be available?

Wayne

I'm looking for L-ascorbic acid but all I can find at this time is ascorbic acid.

Even the websites that say they have it, when I looked at their COA form it looks like it is just ascorbic acid.

In emailing one company thay they took the time to explain to me that ascorbic acid is 50% L-ascorbic acid and 50% D-ascorbic acid. The body will only use the L component anyway and will discard the D so the body makes a good filter anyway with no adverse effects.

I'm also looking for a good base cream to ad it to. I have one coming to try. Also I'm thinking I may ad a jar of glycerine.

Any idaes would be great. When I do get it put together I will send you a note.

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: Hi, I have used the Vit C serum before and it di=oes help in making your skin look so much better. Kw=eep the info flowing.. Thanks alot Margo

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: hi sounds like a good idea, cant seem to get active ingredient, help

Wayne

I have found out that ascorbic acid comes in a powder form and a crystal form. I'm looking to make sure that I get the powder form so it will mix in the serum better.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

: "This is illustrated with my recent comment on Boots no 7 perfect and protect ..."

I wish there was a search option on here, because I can't locate these comments.

----------------------------------------------------------------

: I found vitamin C & E combined in a softgel supplement, other ingredients are gelatin, soybean, glycerin,soy lecithin and beeswax. What do you think about puncturing the softgel and add to regular face cream? C is Ascobic Acid and Rose Hips, 500mg and the E is d-Alpha Tocopherol plus d-Beta, d-Gamma and d-Delta Tocopherol, whatever all that means. What do you think?

Wayne

I have read in blogs where people have used these softgels and there are some products that are out there that you do combine the two. Softgels and cream. Check out HSN under their vitamin c creams.

As for the whatever all that means, This is the vitamine E mixture. And having all of them in the D form is better. Some manufacturers will use the D and L form. Half D and Half L. It is very expensive to isolate the D. This will be a more effective.

I would only make up an once at a time. Use it up and make up more.

: Hi Wayne -

Thanks for getting back to me on the softgels. I have been puncturing one A and one C & E softgel each night to put on my face and haven't had any adverse effects and my skin doesn't seem as dull. I'm sure you will come up with much better products for your kit and I can't wait to order one.

Thank you,

Leslie

---------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------

: Where can I buy or order the L-ascorbic powder and glycerin so that I can start making my own serum? Please send me some websites or addresses or phone numbers to order. If I contact pharmacies around here, I'm afraid they won't be helpful. Thanks, Martha

Wayne

I have put two links just above the comment box with links to buy both ascorbic acid and the glycern.
