  • Aristoflex AVC for Aha acids

    Can aristoflex AVC be used for formulating alpha hydroxy acids based serums if the formula pH is adjusted to 4.
    Also, will adding any base to increase pH will cause the gel to disrupt?

    @Learntounlearn Aristoflex will thicken virtually nil at pH 4.0, so bring the pH up to 5.0 with dilute sodium hydroxide and you’ll see a dramatic difference. Your gel will be fine.

    Sepinov EMT10 will thicken at 4. Sepimax Zen at 3 (I want to say 2.7 but my ph meter isn’t the most accurate).
