Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

I need to measure ascorbic acid for a lotion recipe. As I couldn't find ascorbic acid as an ingredient to find the proper conversion, is there another ingredient that has similar weight, etc. that I could use instead?

If one was to know a substance that has a similiar weight to acsorbic acid, they would have to know the weight of ascorbic acid, otherwise, a comparsion couldn't be made. :-) As a rule of law, an MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) is required on all chemicals sold in the USA. You can search for them on the Internet.

An MSDS on ascorbic acid can be found here: http://www.jtbaker.com/msds/englishhtml/a7608.htm

It states the density (specific gravity) is 1.65

Another safety data sheet can be found here: http://www.physchem.ox.ac.uk/MSDS/AS/ascorbic_acid.html

It also states the specific gravity is 1.65.
