    @gorgeouslygreen can i use crushed vitamin c pills instead of l ascorbic acid? I cant find it here in my country. Thanks..

  • englishplum

    this video was just what I was looking for, I had some vit C powder and didn’t enjoy consuming by mouth, so now I know how to make the serum – thanks a lot for your video, you are a wonderful presenter, amazing waist too :)

    Your video inspired me to make an Alpha Lipoic Acid serum, because I’ve heard that ALA contains an extremely high concentration of antioxidants. HOWEVER, once I break open the capsule of the powdered ALA and mix it with water in a glass vial, the ALA either sits on the top or sinks to the bottom, as if it were sand. No matter how much I shake the vial, this is what happens. Its also pretty gritty. What should I do SOPHIE!!!

    @gorgeouslygreen Oh, I see! I can’t find vitamin c in powdered form here in Holland, I asked it at the pharmacy but they don’t have it. And you’re right, if you’re buying a commercial vitamin c serum, it does cost like an arm and a leg :))
    Thank you for the recipe!

    Is it safe and useful to add zinc oxide powder to this recipe for sun protection?

    If so, will it be necessary to apply 1 tsp of zinc oxide and 1 additional tsp of the other ingredients (water and glycerin)?

  • gorgeouslygreen

    Yes, you can get the Vitamin C powder or crystals from Duane Reed or CVS Pharmacy – also Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. It’s sometimes called L-ascorbic acid and is the same thing.

    how can i make 20% of vitamin c serum? thanks

  • gorgeouslygreen

    @DazzleDiaries I would use as is.

  • orginunknown

    the stuff changed color from white to brown. that means the vitamin c oxidized meaning it’s inactive and won’t do anything.

  • gorgeouslygreen

    @81drifty Yes it’s the same. The C crystals take a while to dissolve. So make sure you dissolve them in water first for a minute or two before adding glycerin. After adding the water, shake the bottle and the crystals will dissolve completely after a couple of hours.

    @sweetbunny9 Wholefoods in the Raw Food section

  • gorgeouslygreen

    You can buy them from Mountain Rose Herbs. Go to Gorgeously Green and press the button on the front page, which will click you straight through.

    @prettysun are you using vitamin C crystals only or the camu too? The camu will make it brownish – so if you don’t like that, just use the C crystals.

    ผสมแบบนี้มึงจะได้ Oxidase from แทนนะฮะ โมเลกุลวิตามินซีที่ขาดไฮโดรเจน = Free Redical นะฮะ

  • AlexandraParaskiv

    Thank you so mutch!Awesome!!

  • starveil101

    @prettysun That was the color of the Camu Camu Powder – good eye though!

  • flowerpetals1985

    Does anyone know where I can get rose petals from to make an infusion like she does on her video where she makes almond geranium face cream?

  • DazzleDiaries

    i love this!!!!!! can you add some vitamin E to this? or should it remain Vitamin C alone?

  • sweetbunny9

    where do I get the Camu Powder??

  • lovesparks314

    @prettysun The camu powder is yellowish, so it’s from that.

  • shelties100998

    @prettysun its from the camu powder

  • 81drifty

    is ascorbic acid the same as l.ascorbic acid, and why can i not disolve the crystals,
    the serum is gritty at the end

  • missgray71
