Using an Ultrasonic Cleaner to make liposomal vitamin C.

A guide to making liposomal Vitamin C with an ultrasonic cleaner.

I should start by saying the subject of liposomal vitamin C is relatively new to me and I would not even begin to discuss the science behind the process or it’s benefits in any kind of detail.

In the last couple of years, there has been a steady increase in sales of Ultrasonic Cleaners to customers who are using the machines to make encapsulated vitamin C. I thought it was worth adding some technical information on the ultrasonic cleaners used in this specialist process.

From conversations with our customers, it seems there are two elements that are vital to the process of making liposomal vitamin C. The first is temperature control and secondly is the timer that controls the length of time the machine is activated.  Secondary functions such as degassing mentioned at: and I’ll explain this shortly.

About ultrasonic cleaner functions.

Temperature control

As the temperature control is crucial it would be best to buy an Ultrasonic Cleaner that has a digital readout and control. This is simply because the digital display shows two sets of information:

1). The actual temperature in the tank

2). The target temperature for the tank.

The very action of the machine producing ultrasonic waves produces a modest amount of warmth that will raise the temperature of the liquid and so with the digital readout, you will be able to monitor this. When making  liposomal vitamin C, this is important.

Timer Control

With a digital model, the timer can be programmed for up to 90 minutes, whereas with a dial control, the maximum time is restricted to 20 minutes.


Degassing is available on some models and is an addition function which, after a change of solution or agitation of a solution, quickly removes any air from the liquid which makes the process more effective. This is useful when making liposomal vitamin C but not essential as air will over time, always rise to the top of a liquid naturally. Additionally, the power of the machine can be reduced by 50% if required. Degassing does however, add a bit more money to the purchase price of the Ultrasonic Cleaner.

Sweep Function

This is a function that fluctuates the operating frequency of the machine, but this really isn’t of any benefit in making liposomal vitamin C

Which model to select

The two popular sizes of machine normally selected are 2 or 3 litre. With the 3 litre there is an option of a degassing model.
