Im having a problem with a formulation once I add potassium sorbate to the formula it makes my serum look like it has egg whites in it! I don't know what this means, if the potassium sorbate is no good or if something is incompatible here. I'm about to give up on this ingredient all together lol.
35.55% distilled water
30% witch hazel distillate alcohol free
10% aloe leaf juice
10% hyaluronic acid serum/ Note: from a 2%hyaluronic acid & water serum preserved with 4% leucidal liquid
1.2% green coffee extract / 1x5 menstrum 75% grain alcohol
1.2% Cacao extract / 1x5 menstrum 75% grain alcohol
4% leucidal liquid
0.3% citric acid
0.15% potassium sorbate
The essential oils (yes I'm aware that I'm not using an emulsifier), leucidal liquid, hyaluronic acid serum, are added at the cool down phase at room temperature. Everything looks fine at this point I then adjust the pH with the citric acid, still fine, then add the potassium sorbate then it goes up in smoke or should I say egg whites!
Can someone please tell me exactly what is going on, I would greatly appreciate it!
