I'm in the process of making my very own vit c serum. I live in vancouver canada and am having a difficult time buying ingredients. I thought it would have been simple to just buy from a health food store L-AA, glycerine, SKB, ferulic acid...but it's been tough. There are a few websites mentioned but how much is the shipping fee to canada?

hm...I'm sure you could leave the e-retailer a message with your questions - they are generally good at responding. Did you look under FAQ or shipping? There's usually a small blurb if they ship to Canada or not and if so, how they go about charging for it.

BCgirl,

I know bulkactives ships internationally out of Asia, the big difference for you in Canada as compared to the US is the customs charges and taxes that get tacked on as I understand it.

I am in Canada as well and ordered my vitamin C ingredients from Bulk Actives - LAA and FA only. Although they are from Asia, shipping was very reasonable (I think it was under $5) and it only took two weeks to arrive. I used pure aloe vera gel instead of SKB since it's easier to find locally and my serum is working beautifully.
