    My name is cidra i start formulating 9 months ago and i just in beginning my project is just in beginning ..i make a face cream for familly and freinds they like it and they feel it active ..but i want to add some ingrediants to make it better i read about to make the ingrediants less to servie money and get the formula stability but i already bought these ingrediants and want to use it in one formula dont want to make many creams just one have all the effects..so my question is

    Iwant to use a 4 effective ingrediants in same formula and i want to ask if Mixing these ingrediants togather in same formula will make any un likely chemical reaction or if some ingrediants effects of other ingrediants work

    1 alfa arbotin for whitening

    2 niacinamaide vitamin b3 nuritioning

    3 bakuchiol extract oil acne and retionl effect

    4 reservetrol anti ageing and mosturizing

    Is these 4 ingrediants will make any proplems mixing togather??

    And what is the best percentage % if i want to add all these ?

    I will add also

    hyaloronic acid .

    . kojic acid

    sillk protien ..

    Vit e

    i know that i can remove many of these ingrediants but the first 4 ing i want it togather please..

    For the ph fixing what is best ingrediant to fix it ?? Citric acid or salicylic acid??

    Ps my oil phase is

    grapseed oil,

    Sure you can mix those together. They won’t actually have any real positive effect but they should all be compatible.

        Not really. They are claims or marketing ingredients

    Can you make a stable cream? If no then first learn that.

    I would use 2% arbotin and 5% niacinamide. I won’t use those other ingredients

        Just because things are published doesn’t mean they are true. Backuchiol does not work as well as retinol despite what some people claim.
