I am a skin care enthusiast, but I lack a background in cosmetic chemistry. I was wondering if anyone might be able to help answer some basic questions, or perhaps just steer me in the right direction.
I've been steaming my face for years, adding in drops of different essential oils depending on my specific skin needs. I feel like it's helped my skin, but there is nothing in the market like that. I'm wondering, can steam be a viable vehicle for more sophisticated skin care ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, urolic acid, niacin, etc? Could steam carry a liposome to the skin and aid it's absorption?
I realize these may sound like silly questions to many of you. But any help, advice or education would be very much appreciated.
Thank you so much in advance!
