I'm exploring formulating a exfoliating cream. The first batch had a ph of of 2.0 measured with meter. Two questions.
What is the appropriate ph level for such a cream used on the face?
Second, what might I change or add to the formula to get the correct ph?
The exfoliating face cream formula:
aloe vera 10.0%
Aquaxyl 3.0% %D-Glucose, polymer with xylitol and D-Xylitol, 1,4-anhydro-and Xylitol)
ethylhexyl palmitate 5.0%
baobab oil 2.0%
pomegranate seed oil 3.0%
montanov L 3.0% (C14-22 Alcohols (and) C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside)
cetyl alcohol 2.0%
super sterol liquid 2.0% ( c10-30 cholesterol/lanosterol esters
Liquid Germall Plus 0.5%
lactic acid at 90% solution 2.0%
