15% vitamin C + E + ferulic acid serum with Jojoba
1 tsp L-Ascorbic Acid (from Lotioncrafter.com)
1 tsp Sea Kelp Bioferment (from Skinactives.com)
1 tsp Jojoba Oil
3 tsp Distilled water
1/4 tsp Ferulic Acid (from Skinactives.com)
1/4 tsp Vitamin E Oil (from capsules or bottle)
1/4 tsp ice cold Vodka or Witch Hazel
1) First dissolve the ferulic acid in the vodka in one shotglass.
2) Combine the SKB, vit E and jojoba oil in a second shotglass.
3) Quickly mix the L-ascorbic acid into the water in a third shotglass and combine with the other 2 shotglasses.
Store in a dark closed dropper bottle in a cool but not necessarily cold place.
Shake before using each time.
***Be sure that each phase is completely dissolved before combining all the phases together.*** Your serum should be a milky thin fluid, and it is normal to have an oily layer on top. Shake well before using each time to disperse the oil and water phases.
The pH of any L-ascorbic acid serum should be less than 3.5 in order to be absorbed by the skin. If your serum's pH rises above 3.5 or turns yellow or darkens, throw it away since it has oxidized and is no longer effective.
I found this DIY recipe online. I've just bought the ingredients that I was missing to make this when my stuff arrives. Anyone try this yet?
