Vitamin C Serum with Ascorbic Acid


Camu Camu Vitamin C Serum

  • Combine camu camu and glycerin in a small bowl. Mix well.
  • Add aloe vera and stir to combine.
  • Transfer to a small container (one with a dropper is the easiest to use).

Vitamin C Serum with Ascorbic Acid

  • Combine the vitamin C powder and filtered water in a 1-ounce bottle. Swirl together until the powder is completely dissolved. Then add the glycerin and vitamin E oil.


Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. If it starts to yellow, it’s time to toss it.
To use, smooth 2–4 drops onto your clean face, neck, and chest twice a day. Let it absorb and follow with moisturizer.
Ideally, vitamin C serum should be applied in the morning, beneath sunscreen. You can also use the serum in the evening after washing your face and applying toner but before your moisturizer. To apply, gently pat it onto the face and neck, avoiding the eye area.
