Hello all Smile

I purchased Truly Natural Vitamin C by HealthForce at Henrys today. When I asked for asorbic acid, this is what I was given. Will this be as effective as the acid? Any advice would be greatly appreciated Smile

Thank you!

No, it won't be suitable. You must use a Vitamin C powder that is especially made for cosmetic formulations. You can buy it from places like or or other websites which sell ingredients for DIY lotions.

Born 1950. There's a new cream on the market that gets rid of wrinkles - you smear it on the mirror!!

If it says ascorbic acid, it should be ok IMO. I have purchased ascorbic acid from swansonvitamins and I use on my body, it works out fine, however on face I use only L-ascorbic acid, with the D form which is supposedly inactive and both are present in "plain" ascorbic acid but it won't harm you, again IMO.

You need pure ascorbic acid powder. Specifically in its unmodified powder form.

It can be purchased for a very good price from eBay.

Id agree with Keliu's supplier recommendations. If your in Europe may be cheaper due to no customs fees.
