Hi, Anyone tried mixing antioxidant and collagen serum? Is it ok to do so and add some ROS as well or SOD? For travelling, it seems easier to carry one bottle less... Thanks!

I will have a look at the ingredient lists but it may be OK for the very short term (like taking a small amount for a short trip). For long term, you may have stability problems.

Good question. I don’t usually use them at the same time but it would be convenient for short trips to take just one small bottle and use it 2x/day.

Missbaggy, I’m curious why you want to add more of the ROS Terminator (which I think includes the SOD). Is it just to get a higher level?

The antioxidant serum, just like all our formulas, contains the "right" concentrations of actives. Adding more will not improve the product, it will just cost you more money.

I can't see any obvious problems, but I would try mixing very little amounts. It will be an experiment, so you can't predict the outcome.

Thanks Hannah and Minva... I have tried making small batches to take on trips and have not found anything wrong with it but just wanted to ask just in case as I won't know if the mixture has oxidized. The antioxidant serum is always like brownish color when I get it anyways... I added SOD to the collagen serum for day use per suggestion from Hannah... perhaps she didn't know that I was also using the Anti Oxidant Serum which I recently started. Is that an overkill then Hannah?

Thank you so much as always... your comments and suggestions are always informative and sensible.

Yes, if you use antioxidant serum you don't need SOD in the collagen serum but "overkill" in this case will not harm you, it will only waste you money.  And it may help.
