I am following the moisturizing cream + Zinc dispersion recipe and I am extremely satisfied. I do allow for a little time for it to absorb in & then I dab off anything that I feel looks a little white - but that's because I initially use a fairly thick coating on myself. I use a bit of foundation at times on top and there are no issues as far as weird colors or texture issues. I am so grateful for this entire website as a one-stop-shop for such effective skin care products, and now we can.. ...»

This product is amazing! I'm new to diy moisturizing cream and I've done quite a bit of research. However, I found info. at BulkActives that I have not seen anywhere else, especially with the hyaluronic acid. This product is of high quality, my friend is a chemist and he ran some tests, very high quality. It has done wonders for my skin, not only in the way it looks more healthy but it just feels so smooth and hydrated. I'm still experimenting with some recipes so I will return. Your service is .. ...»

DIY skin careWhy DIY your own skin care products?

The simple truth is that rarely do the store bought skin care products work. It isn't often that your $500 bottle of Intensive Night Restorative actually does anything (besides quickly remove five hundred dollars from your bank account).

There is definitely a better way to keep your skin looking young and healthy, and it won't harm your bank account!

That better way is with DIY skin care.

By choosing to make your own skin care products, not only will you save yourself money, but you'll enable yourself to find treatments that work for almost any skin related need. Do you need an anti-aging wrinkle cream? Maybe you're just looking for something that will work for skin brightening. Whatever the case, you can find it with homemade skin care products. 

What is DIY Skin Care? 

DIY skin care is about making your own treatments, creams, moisturizers, or any other type of product that you apply to the skin. 

Instead of running out to the store to buy the latest chemically enhanced and fragranced moisturizer, you can order the ingredients to make a better moisturizer yourself. With the active ingredients together you follow a simple skin care recipe, and you suddenly have a cream moisturizer that puts that commercial product to shame!

Most of the ingredients you use in DIY skin care are natural extracts, which also makes homemade skin care solutions the holistic approach to keeping that youthful glow.

How do I Get Started as A DIYer?

Getting started with do-it-yourself skin care isn't difficult at all. All you really need are some active ingredients, and a little knowledge. Our site has a huge list of the ingredients you'll require, we have created categories for many skin care needs, each skin care ingredient has a page with detailed information, and we also have links to many abstracts of scientific studies on the skin actives that we sell. We also have a good list of starter skin care recipes, a support forum AND we are helpful in answering any questions.

Excellent base Ceramide 2, 3, 6II Lamellar Liquid Crystal PRE emulsion! It went very well for me and my daughter, she has atopic dermatitis. Literally on the third day of applying the cream (which is made up of Multi Lamellar Base Cream V2 Carrier Oil Free, NO Polymer 60%, 10% black currant oil, rice bran oil 5%, 1% of the complex of ceramides and water), the skin of my daughter got clean and healthy. I have noticeably narrowed pores, face was moist and disappeared on my forehead shine. Now Mul.. ...»

I have a blind faith of this Pre Liposome Microemulsion, especially it is made in Japan & of Squalane & Lecithin which I am fond of. I mixed it with Palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 peptides liposome emulsion & some other water actives like Glucosamine, Niacinamide, Glutathione etc and the serum was very smooth and moisturizing. As it claims, it penetrates into the skin very well. I will mix it with oil soluble actives in my next batch. .. ...»

I've been using Bulkactives green tea EGCG for four years. No complaints, it blends nicely my DIY anti-aging cream. I can feel a bit of toning and definitely notice the anti-inflammatory effects on my skin. Two observations that keep the rating 4 stars instead of 5: (1) A package of green tea contains significantly less weight/volume than the package of grape seed extract that I order from bulkactives. The two are combined in equal amounts in the anti-aging cream, so I find myself running o.. ...»

I have been DIYing my cream and serum for 3 years and am still looking for a skin barrier-friendly emulsifier to mix both water phase and oil phase together, without separation afterwards. As I don't want to use beeswax, so I need to make wild guess which combination and amount of emulsifiers I should use; whenever I change the percentage of oil and type of oils in the mix; given the HLB of oils is different from one to another. Though it may be a fun to mix actives with emulsifier, it i.. ...»
