DIY CEF Vitamin C Skin Serum For Beginners




What do you think about this video?

HesAPooka: Hi, where do you buy ferulic acid? I'm having trouble finding some.

Elle Dfw: Doug.... Thank you soooo much for your in-depth description of making this Vit C Serum !!!! I'm on my second or third batch !!!! It REALLY works!!!! And so reasonably priced! Thanks again !!!!! Elle DFW

Lisa Thong: Hello Doug! I just watched this video and was wondering about the amount you made -how long will it last for? a week? or month?? Also, isn't better to make a new batch every week??? please share your thoughts because i am very interested in making this particular serum! thank you! ~Lisa

Connor Cliche: Hey Doug. I just wanted to say thanks for the how-to! Onto my second batch of serum I've made since last September (stopped using it for a few months), but overall loving the results. Cheers to healthy skin mate! Connor.

Tigerdeer: Could you use L-Ascorbic powder in this recipe and if so how much should you put in? Thanks

Melatina77: Can I leave the Polysorbate 80 out and just shake really well before each use?

Julia L: I love your video. I'm amazed at how little viewers it has compared to other DIY vit c skin serum videos, but I assume that viewers thinking a guy don't know what he's talking about women skincare. You seem like a science type of guy so I gave it a try and so far my favorite video. :) Keep up the good work. Thanks for the recipe. 

Tigerdeer: Awesome!

Sarah Child: Gotcha, that's a great idea! I haven't purchased my items yet. But I'll be doing that very soon. I'll pick up some liquid and powdered lecithin and see if either one of them work. It's also great that you posted the ingredients so that I'll have something to follow. Thank you very much for all your help and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Sarah Child: Thanks for such a quick response. But I thought ReCverin was one of the main ingredients. (L-Ascorbic Acid) MMmm confused

Lee Ingrid: Do u care to answer this: "so as an expert do you not recommend to use Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate in DIY serums?" not in ReCverin products?

Julie C. Francis: Great DIY Serum. Thanks for the post! ooooooooooooooooooyeaaa!

Sarah Child: This was the most professional presentation and the best diy serum i have seen. Most other diy serums contain water and spoil. I was just wondering if i could use 18 drops of soy lecithin instead of polysorbate 80. Once again, thank you

kelinhauk: isn't 2.8 pH far that too acidic for the skin?

Elida Denny: THANK U SO MUCH FOR THE RECIPE UR SKIN LOOKS VERY NICE

ReCverin: In my humble opinion, dermarolling is not a safe practice, and you should not apply anything to your skin (except antiseptic) immediately after. If you are seeking a way to better absorb vitamin C, I recommend you consider ReCverin 50/50. This product is the best absorbed vitamin C serum in the world, and does not require that you puncture thousands of tiny holes in your skin.

Robert Williams: You need to study dermarolling further. It is perfectly safe if done correctly. Been doing it for 1.5 years.

ReCverin: @milagros157 Trans-ferulic acid is a synonym of ferulic acid...they are the same chemical compound.

STARSWORK: Hi! I really like your video and how professional you are. I like to know what will this do for my skin? Is it ok for darker skin women?

MightyRoy: Polysorbate 80 is a synthetic emulsifier. It is banned in some food products. A natural emulsifier like lecithin might be much better.

ReCverin: @avmakeme You said, "Vit C mixed with other substances starts to oxidize." That depends on the substance. The most important substance in cosmetics that causes oxidation is water. This recipe is made with ReCverin C which is anhydrous ("no water"). The ascorbic acid in this product is extremely stable, no measurable oxidation at room temperature for at least a year! You will note that no water is added in making the CEF serum. I can't answer all ur ?s here, write support@recverin.com for more.

ReCverin: Although glycerin has a slippery or oily feel initially, it is not an oil and it absorbs within minutes to leave a silky, smooth, non-greasy texture. Some folks find it absorbs faster if used with a little water or moisturizing lotion. It is glycerin which allows DHAA to be stabilized in solution. This is a discovery for which we have received "Notice of Allowance" for a United States patent. Nobody knows how to make a stable DHAA solution that isn't in glycerin or a similar polyol.

lilqtxanq3l: When using topical vitamin c products, when should we apply them on? Day or night?

ReCverin: I occasionally make wine, wish I had more time for it, but ReCverin keeps me very busy. Thanks for your nice comments!

Connor Cliche: Amazing serum! I didn't know how important an emulsifier and preservative was! I promptly ordered some Ferulic Acid and Polysorbate-80. This stuff looks like it's gonna last forever! Any storage recommendations? What's the shelf life on the Ferulic and PS80?

ReCverin: There is a thorough discussion of vitamin C derivatives at our website FAQs page, much more than I can write here. Hope you'll visit for info not only about magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, but ascorbyl palmitate and tetrahexyldecylascorbate too.

ReCverin: @hivespot I hope you will share this with your peers and instructors at your school...vitamin C is so important for the skin. Thanks for your comments!

ReCverin: Thank you. I hope it encourages you to investigate the health and beauty benefits of dehydroascorbic acid, and to try ReCverin 50/50.

rngy33: so as an expert you do not recommend to use Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate in DIY serums?

C DAVIS: He wants to sell his Recverin product so he didn't answer your question! Haha! I have the L-Ascorbic Acid and pure vegetable Glycerin on hand so I can't pay an additional $35 to $40 after shipping just for an already prepared Vitamin C/Glycerin mixture. If anyone knows how to do this please let me know!

AV Make Me: This recipe looks brilliant. I just wonder about the oxidation process. I am a Cidesco Beauty Therapist (Esthetician). I researched & learned that when pure vit C is mixed with other substances is starts to oxidize therefore losing its beneficial properties & has a short life span. Where did you get this recipe & do you use it on you own skin, if so how long & how long did it take for you to see results from this product? Very interested...

ReCverin: Yes, we use USPS Priority Mail International. This service to Canada is currently $12.95. Shipment tracking is included.

ReCverin: The serum contains 1% vitamin E, 0.4% ferulic acid, and the vitamin C concentration depends on which ReCverin product you use: 10% l-ascorbic acid if you use ReCverin C; or 2.5% l-ascorbic acid and 2.5% l-dehydroascorbic acid if you use ReCverin 50/50.

dani: Thank you for the response. I do have another question about the regular ReCverin vs. ReCverin 50/50. The formula in 50/50 absorbs faster (I believe you said 12% faster), but isn't the concentration of Vitamin C in the 50/50 much, much lower? Can it be effective at that concentration? The Vitamin C in the regular ReCverin is 15%, and I believe (and may be wrong) this amount is the least one should use for it to be effective for most people. Is this accurate?

ReCverin: Yes, the ascorbic acid concentration is the main factor in determining the pH of the final solution.

ReCverin: At room temperature, ReCverin C will easily last a year without any significant deterioration of ascorbic acid. At room temperature, ReCverin 50/50 will begin to develop a slight straw color after about 60 days. This is because the DHAA in ReCverin 50/50 is less stable, but it is more effective for the skin because it absorbs so much faster. Keeping ReCverin 50/50 refrigerated will greatly increase (many months) the stability, and it may be kept frozen for at least two years.

Angela T: Hello, can I incorporate D-panthenol in this recipe? Thank you for the video!

ReCverin: Almost all glycerin you can purchase today is vegetable derived. Distilled water is preferred in general for do-it-yourself cosmetic recipes that call for water, but the recipe in this video does not contain water. Vitamin C solutions that contain water break down much faster than anhydrous ("no water") ones.

immandrew: do you mean an eye creme? why would you put anything IN your actual eye?!

ReCverin: I'm sorry but I haven't done any tests with hyaluronic acid powder, so I don't know the answer to your question.

mike tan: Hi there, I am trying to make some CEF Vit C Skin Serum and I could not find some of the ingredience in the UK.... ReCverin C; Can I make my own by mixing L. Ascorbic acid and Glycerin??? Folic Acid powder; Can I use Folic acid(800mcg) tablets, and it contains B12 as well??? Pls advise... Thanks. Mike

CLARA3952: how long is this viable and does it have to be refrigerated thanks

ReCverin: We've tested our products' stability in clear plastic bottles versus dark bottles, and found no measurable difference. They were all stored indoors under normal room lighting. The effect on the vitamin C in our products of 18 or 24 hours exposure to room lighting is negligible. I wouldn't put the bag in direct sunlight, mostly because of the heat rather than the light, but also because we haven't tested the effects of extremely strong light. Thank you for the inquiry and viewing the video!

ReCverin: The vitamin E is an oil, some people don't like the feel or appearance it gives the skin. For you, I'd recommend using ReCverin just the way we provide it rather than mixing in vitamin E.

coperniciaTalent: the emulsifier should have lower molecular weight than the sebum in our skin right? (like jojoba oil) Is that the cae of lecithin too?

ReCverin: Will ship ReCverin C to UK. I don't know about Folic Acid, only about Ferulic Acid as in the video.

dani: Is there any possibility that your company will ever sell the 50/50 product without the glycerin base? Will it travel well, or is it stable without it? Some of us don't care for the feel of glycerin on our skin, which is somewhat similar to the feel of Vitamin E. Curious.
