  • I see. Thank you guys for your input. Much appreciated
  • "Use of the ceramide cream in this study resulted in a 100-percent improvement in IGA scores and a 67-percent improvement in overall subject skin self-assessment scores after four weeks of use in individuals with atopic dermatitis or other sensitive…
  • ngarayeva001 said: I have been looking for a scientific proof of skin benefits provided by topically applied ceramides for a while but all existing studies are not solid enough. I raised a topic here but several professional chemists pointed ou…
  • Thank you for the comments! I know a lot of these plant powders wont do a lot efficacy-wise, so I was putting them in there for mostly marketing reasons. But I do want this to work to some degree! Peptides, HLA and vitamin C are what i am relying o…
  • EVchem said: There are people with a much stronger background on here that could give you more qualified advice.    but here are my  initial thoughts: - I don't know what peptide is in peptide powder but generally I'm skeptical of peptides doin…
  • Perry said: 1. Sure - although you should use a vitamin C powder that adheres to some reasonable standards (e.g. https://www.gcchemicals.com/docs/AscorbicAcid%20-%20Spec%20Sheet.pdf) 2.  Same answer as above. Find an hyaluronic acid source tha…
  • Good feedback, thank you. What do you think of the active ingredients?
  • Pharma said: Lindsey1009 said: ... feel more smooth and silky? ... Trade in some of the beeswax with cetyl palmitate (silky and smoother than pure wax) or myristyl myristate (softer and shinier). Like 1-2% plus 0.5% wax instead…
  • ngarayeva001 said: I usually see lakes and oxides as colorants. They are stable throughout life of the product. yes, mix solubilizer with EO (2:1 should be ok) and add to cool down phase.  Great, I will try it! Thanks again for you expert…
  • NatraGem S140 NP is a natural solubalizer. Would I simply mix that with the EO's and add during last phase? I was thinking of adding some mica in a rich green color to overpower the changes in color that might occur. I wasn't sure If that makes sen…
  • ngarayeva001 said: 0.5% of xanthan for this formula might be a bit too much, I would reduce to 0.2%.  I don't see a reason to add 1% of vitamin e. It's an antioxidant for your product (not for skin benefits) and you don't need much. Please conf…
  • Awesome! Thank you so so much!
  • ngarayeva001 said: Yes they have quite a few ingredients, but mostly a fluff. Always look at functional ingredients. I could have many suggestions how to make it more silky, but I don't know what would be acceptable for you. I am not sure whic…
  • ngarayeva001 said: Olivem and beeswax should be ok. The only concern I have is that your oil phase is a bit high, so you need to make it and see whether it's stable or not. I don't have much experience with Olivem because it's too draggy for my…
  • I was planning on tweaking the oil types just a bit, but I just want to make sure the amounts of each ingredient type will work. I also plan to use a few different essential oils (but keep the .5% total!). I guess this is just a blueprint type recip…
  • That's funny, I was thinking I should maybe throw some glycerin in there too! I will add that in and reduce vitamin E. Why is too much vitamin E detrimental? Just curious. Cost?
  • ngarayeva001 said: The problem is, beeswax isn’t an emulsifier. You need a proper emulsifier for this product. Can you please put this in % because drops and grams are very hard to read. Your water phase is around 30% while oil phase is around …
  • ngarayeva001 said: And your emulsifier is? I also edited my original post to include a tiny bit of spirulina. Hopefully that works in this, as it is such a small amount.
  • ngarayeva001 said: And your emulsifier is? beeswax. But if I need a co-emulsifier I am completely open to that too
