Your subheading Homemade Vitamin C Serum DIY Lotion indicates that oxidation, destabilization, temperature and shelf life compromise Vitamin C serum.

Is there anything else that yellow-textured Vitamin C serum may be used for? In other words, would its expiration, use-by date mandate discarding or would there be some recyclable use?

Your wizzley convinces me to try vitamin C as a facial serum.

Typically, I rely upon vaseline to keep my face hydrated and smooth. But I will look for the above-mentioned products and also for the two books that you reference.

In particular, it interests me how beneficial vitamin C is in nutrition and in skin care.

You mention under your subheading Hydrosols that vitamin C must be in the right proportions with ferulic acid, hyaluronic acid and vitamins B and E. What would those proportions happen to be?
