I am very happy with both the quality and packaging of the Ferulic acid I ordered. It came in foil packets (I ordered two). Will buy from them again as I use the product in my Vitamin C serum to maintain the PH needed... ...»
Powered ingredient easy to blend, dissolves easily, no gritty feel, product does however transfer this chemical transdermally and should be thought about prior to mixing as it does effect hormones. Gives skin a quick firm appearance in personal formulations and was a great experimental addition to personal products. The DIY provided on this site is the way to go to try out this product. A little goes a long way... ...»
Hi, Ordered this about 5 weeks ago, so I been waiting to DIY and try the product before I left a review. I mixed Palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 Liposome Emulsion, 3/4 tsp, with 3tsps distilled water and 3/4 tsp of rose hip oil. It makes a beautiful light weight serum that I apply at night. You can feel tightening within a few minutes. The tightening subsides in half hour or so and then I apply a moisturiser. Another excellent buy from Bulk Actives. .. ...»

I've been using glucosamine in combination with niacinamide as an addition to my moisturizer to combat dark spots on face and hands. Used twice daily, it does seem to keep them from darkening. Of course, you still need to be religious about using a sunscreen every time you are in the sun. .. ...»
