I would like to create a scaled-down version of this toner, ingredient list shown below. I have a question about creating just the "BHA"/salicylic acid portion of it.
- Is it most likely that they are solubolizing the salicylic acid in the butylene glycol? Or the ethanol? I assume this is a fairly easy process and that no extra solubolizing agents are needed (assuming the below list is 100% complete/accurate)?
- Is it correct that they are not using any additives to adjust the pH higher?
