Vit C serum with Lactic acid .

AzizAziz Member
Hi , 
I want to make a vitamin C serum , I have L ascorbic acid , Lactic acid but don't have hyaluranic acid . Can I use Lactic acid instead of hyaluranic acid ?


  • L-ascorbic acid isn't the best for vitamin C serums, especially if you intend for it to be water-based (judging by you wanting to include hyaluronic acid). It's not stable in water/ light. Lactic acid and hyaluronic acid are two very different ingredients and therefore can't be subbed one for the other. Additionally, neither are required for a vitamin C serum.
