OK... so I'm new to this DIY Vit C facial (& hand, etc.) serum. I refuse to continue to buy pre-made Vit C serum manufactured by someone else, spending $24 to $40 per 2 oz bottle! Never again. I've done so much research on the Vit C, what powders, what "type" of C is most effective, how to preserve the efficacy of the serum.

After much research online, and shopping at Whole Foods, Sprouts, etc., I decided to go forward with this Making Cosmetics L-Ascorbic powder. Very glad I did!

I had watched many YouTube videos on this. (I received this product a few days ago so don't have a lot of experience or results to offer. I know that I made THE best decision in powder though). Anyway, today I watched an updated YouTube video from a woman (probably in her 50's - looks great!)

The gal had previously suggested the CamuCamu Vit C powder and another brand (CamuCamu very pricey tho but it's probably good stuff) but what thrilled me was her updated (4 months ago) Vit C serum video that was updated specifically to suggest THIS PARTICULAR POWDER out of all the powders she has used and researched.

It dissolves easily. It arrives tightly sealed & protected. And has rave reviews. Very glad I chose this. Excited to use this serum morning and night, making fresh serum every 3 to 4 days. I use the following recipe, which is highly recommended (it might be a little strong for beginners - for people who haven't used glycolic acid, Retin A, etc).

I believe this is the 20% Vit C Serum recipe Fairly strong. (Beginner might want to start with 5% or 10% strength for first week):

1/2 tsp Vit C powder
2 tsp Distilled Water
1/2 tsp to 1 tsp Vegie Glycerine (stabilizes the C, so it is necessary. Use either this or Aloe Vera GEL.

I'm finally making my own vitamin c serums!! I'm so happy! I've been looking to purchase the right one, but christ they're expensive and vitamin c is so unstable! First off, one thing I love about this powder, other than it definitely being an ultra-fine powder, is the fact that it is SPECIFICALLY L-ascorbic acid powder.

If there's one thing I've noticed about a lot of ascorbic acid powders on Amazon, it's the fact that they are Ascorbic powders. That's it. Vague ol' "ascorbic powder." I say this because ascorbic acid consists of two molescules: L (Levo meaning left) and D (Dextro meaning right) L-Ascorbic acid is the superior molecule thanks to being more beneficial to our skin! Dextro-Ascorbic acid actually has far more cons than pros and does not occur naturally. The thing about our bodies and the asymmetry of molecules is that if we can use one hand of a molecule in a beneficial manner, its opposite-hand molecule is likely to do badly for our physiology. So while L-Ascorbic acid is awesome, D-Ascorbic is not. When you have a compound that has BOTH hands of a molecule, your body will either reject the incompatible handed molecule as waste, both hand-molecules will cancel each other out making the benefits of the compound null, or your body will just react terribly to the bad-hand molecule.

This is why it is important to make sure you are getting PURE L-ASCORBIC ACID and this is why I cannot trust products that won't specify what molecule of the ascorbic acid you're getting!

Anyway everyone, I am on day three of using this fantastic serum I've made. I actually made it to be more of a toner than a serum so that I can use it on other parts of my body. Please start out on a gentle amount when you're new to Vit C skincare. Ascorbic acid is an acid after all!

The powder came very fast. I used it to make a vitamin C serum for my face, and it's been nothing but amazing. I've seen improvement already in my complexion. This will be a must have item for me in the future.

I finally became disgusted with high priced skin serums and creams from (I won't name them, but they're considered top line/best ever, etc.). So I put a lot of time and energy into research, research, and more research toward finding the best ingredients for optimal and amazing skin care results, and if you're reading this, you already know Vitamin C is one of the the numerous "best things" you can do for your skin.

This particular product may not be the ultimate of it's genre, but I've no need to look further because it's amazing! and so fairly priced. In spite of a couple of other reviewers' complaints of not mixing well or graininess, I don't find this to be the case at all, given my mix of ingredients. My experiments are still ongoing, and my current formula uses a mix of the C powder, distilled water, glycerin, vitamin E oil and a few other all natural and organic oils and extracts. I have sensitive skin so I've toned down the percentage of C, but no problem whatsoever with the C powder dissolving easily upon shaking prior to use. I put all the ingredients in a sterilized amber dropper bottle, and my results have far exceeded anything from the high end serums I've wasted money on for the past decade. I'm 59, fair and sensitive skin. Thrilled with the results of using this product in my formulas.

Bottom line, in my opinion, buy this with confidence.
