[deleted] view on homemade vitamin c serum
« on: February 05, 2013, 04:13:50 PM »
I just saw this video on youtube about homemade vitamin C serum. [deleted] makes the point that as soon as the water evaporates on the skin the vitamin c crystallizes and so can't be absorbed by the skin.

I have recently started making my own vitamin c solution and apply emu oil afterwards, so i wonder if this would still be a problem?

Sarah, I was wondering what your opinion is on his video?

[deleted due to violation of forum rule #8]

I also found this journal article which i found interesting:

The first part of your posting is a violation of our forum rules #1, #3 and #8 but I will let it stand and give you the link to the answer on this forum later - I'm now going to bed. The last part of your posting violates rule #1..

I have answered it here:

http://forums.owndoc.com/dermarolling-microneedling/doc-claims-homemade-vit-c-serum-won%27t-work!/

The Dr. you were referring to is not impartial. The video you were referring to promotes his own store with skin products, very expensive skin products, such as a small bottle costing $248 dollar. That man is in the business of spreading disinformation with the intent of making as much money as possible. He feels threatened by us spreading truth. W make nearly no money on our $3 vit. C product. We have to pulverize the vit. C, weigh it and fill it off, print the labels, tamper-seal the bag with another bag, pay taxes etc. We make 50 cents profit per bag. His creams are outrageously expensive and clinically unproven, whereas our approach is. His profit is in many cases 50 dollars per small bottle. He uses the extra credibility his medical degree gives to make profits that are 100 times higher (100000% higher).

If there really was a better method for bringing vit. C into the skin, we would formulate such a product and sell it under our own brand, just like we did that with a 0.025% Retinoic acid cream we produce ourselves.
