Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid

10ml hyaluronic acid

⅛ tsp  Vitamin C  (you need very little!)

10ml distilled water

20 ml bottle

This serum is designed for a single use. Please make a fresh batch every time you want to apply it.

Dissolve the vitamin C into the water by shaking it up in the bottle, add the hyaluronic acid (it is already a 1% dilution so no need to further dilute). Using this serum once a week should be sufficient. After using the serum follow up by applying an oil based serum or a few drops of squalane on top to seal in the moisture. The Vitamin C serum might sting a little a first but should go away. View more of our luxury serums on our blog.

Ascorbic Acid bomb!

I love this pure ascorbic acid! It's a regular buy for me as my family takes this as an immune booster. Paired with the essentially baking soda this combo works out way cheaper than health shops in store

Good for cosmetic use

I’ve been using 7% in my cosmetics and I love it. It’s highly effective and easy to dissolve

Ayaphila Z.

I've been using this product for a couple of weeks, what I do is to mix it with a tissue oil, it dissolve better in tissue oil. I apply the mixture daily after a shower. My skin is already radiant and I'm looking forward to my dark spots being reduced.

Ascorbic acid

It stings on the face but it’s worth the buy. I have been using it for a few weeks now and I’m already getting compliments from my colleagues. Just a pinch of it is enough for the whole face.
