Use: Add to hot fat phase or emulsifier phase of formulas; if it does not dissolve completely add vitamin C and some oil to a mortar and blend the mixture thoroughly with the pestle; suitable solvent: ethoxydiglycol; typical concentration 0.2-3 %. For external use only.  f you are finding it hard to mix into the oil phase then mix with oil and add at cool-down about 40 deg.  If you find a little sedimentation, then a little filtering might be the easiest way to solve the problem.  (might be easier than rebatching)

No oil-soluble at all

I bought this product for my oil-based serum. Following the instructions in the description, I first mixed the powder in a little oil, even heated it in a bain-marie, and the result was unmistakable: a viscous, yellow, poorly-smelling consistency full of sediment. I only used 2% Vitamin C for a 30ml serum. Very disappointed.
