Product Instructions for Serum Boosters

Instructions for DIY Ingredients

Please read the entire page before using! We are not responsible for any misuse of anti-aging ingredients. Serum Boosters and other active cosmetic ingredients are non-returnable. If you have sensitive skin, it is recommended to do a test on a patch of skin before adding the ingredient to any formula or other product.
  • When you receive your DIY item, place it in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
  • Do not use directly on your skin!
  • Each DIY product needs to be incorporated into an existing serum, cream, lotion or create your own formula from scratch. Please note that each DIY product has a specific use recommendation (percentage of product to be used) from the manufacturer. Below is a guide to help you add the correct amount into your product.

    *Please note that all calculations are approximate. You can also watch our video series on how to make custom skin care products.

To add to an existing product: Add DIY ingredient to your existing product, blend or shake well. Place any remaining DIY ingredient in the fridge. See charts below for amounts to add. For example, if you have a 2 oz jar of moisturizer and you would like to add a 10% concentration of Matrixyl, add 1 Teaspoon and stir with a sterile mixer until blended.

For Formulators Only: For use in your recipe, mix phase A and B, let cool, then add your DIY ingredient. Stir until well blended. Place into an airtight container and place any remaining product in the fridge.

Adding a Preservative to your formula

To add Leucidal Liquid to your product:
Add a 4% concentration of Leucidal Liquid to your formula at the end of the process or during the cooling phase. The Leucidal Liquid should be incorporated when the temperature is below 70 degrees Celsius or 158 degrees Fahrenheit.

To add Leucidal Complete:
Follow the same instructions as the Leucidal Liquid. Leucidal Complete can be hazy. It is best to add when the container of the product is 35-40 degrees Celsius. Incorporate into your formulations until clear.

As with all formulas being placed on the market, we recommend every formula undergo challenge testing.

Tips for a Successful Product

1. Sanitize your work area and all utensils. This includes any surface and any item that may come into contact with your formula or serum booster.
2. Measure accurately. Using drops is recommended for adding your serum booster to an existing product. If you are creating a custom formula, use a scale for accurate measurement.
3. Use the right amount of active ingredient, especially the preservative! Using less than the recommended amount of a preservative can cause preservation problems and will not be as effective as it should. Use the manufacturers recommended guidelines for making a successful product.
4. Watch our videos for a visual reference on how to create a custom product.
