A popular ingredient for making your own Vitamin C serums! L-Ascorbic acid is a naturally occurring organic compound and a highly active form of Vitamin C. It is used as a skin care ingredient up to 20% in water based solutions.
Use: Add to water phase of formula, usual final concentration 5% - 20%. Should be formulated at pH <3. 5 for best results.
Application: Lotions, creams, sun care and after sun products, shampoos, makeup products (e. g. lipsticks).
This powder should be dissolved in a water-based ingredient FIRST before adding other ingredients or adding to other products. This powder will not dissolve in oil based ingredients or products. For best results, combine ingredients in our 1 oz. Amber Glass Treatment Bottle to mix/shake and dispense serum with ease. Add other skin-loving ingredients like our Glycerin w/ Botanical Extracts, witch hazel, and a few drops of our Frankincense and Myrrh oils to create an amazing serum/toner all-in-one that lasts for a week! Any powder that might remain in solution at first mixing will dissolve within a short time and does not effect the quality or concentration of the mixture. Product can be used immediately on the face or anywhere on the body where benefits are desired! (Discard any unused mixture once it has begun to turn a yellow color and wash bottle and pump thoroughly with soap and water before next use.)
