Body Mist based on Ethanol help!
This is my first post on this forum as i am quite disappointed from what i could find in the internet and UL prospector and i just need some help from you guys!
I am developing a body mist with the following ingredients:
1. Ethyl alcohol 65.0%
2. Aqua 19.0%
3. Glycerine 2.5%
4. Propanediol 2.5%
5. Solubilizer 5.0% (Solubilizant LRI)
6. parfum 6.0%
My problems are the following:
1. The solubilizer i use it’s quite expensive and i am not sure about the quantity i use (5.0% is too much?). Also will i affect the formula by changing to Polysorbate-20 or PEG-40 HCO and at what level?
2. I have a serious problem keeping the color protected as my mists tend to fade very quickly. I read about Benzophenone-2 that is suitable. In stock i have some samples from BASF, TINOGARD TL and TINOGARD HS that have solved the problem but are quite expensive, so if i could solve it with cheaper alternatives i would be more than happy!
3. Please suggest if there is any database/Website that will help me about perfumes as i couldn’t find any.
Thanks for your time!
