    Hello. There are a few things I don’t really get: why having that high level of tocopherol in your formula? Niacinamide or Vitamin C? The two behave quite differently. Did you run a stability test? Especially with Vitamin C (it’s not that easy to stabilize). What is your final pH? I would strongly advice adding a good chelating agent. Can you back up the claims for the Serum with appropriate testing? The overall effect of any product on the skin depends on the harmony of all ingredients, and without having it properly tested , it’s difficult to tell.

      How do I test it? I haven’t bought the ingredients, since I am just beginning in this.
