I am new to this site and my chemistry knowledge is pretty dusted but I would like to start making my own cosmetic products for personal use and will appreciate any advice you kind people can give :-).
I am trying to make a very light facial moisturizer and have ordered ingredients from Lotioncrafter. I am planning to make a hyalorunic acid gel as follows:
Percent Grams Ingredient
85 85 Apple Essence
1 1 Hyaluronic Acid HMW - 1.0 - 1.5 Million Daltons
1 1 Hyaluronic Acid ELMW 80,000 - 110,000 Daltons
5 5 dl-Panthenol
5 5 Apple Stem Cell Extract
3 3 Leucidal Liquid
I have done this one previously and it worked well.
This time I would like to possible mix this HA gel with the
LC995 Cyclomethicone( 96% Cyclopentasiloxane (D5)) somehow and then add some of Lotioncrafter EL40 ( Dimethicone (and) Dimethicone Crosspolymer) for thickening.
Is it at all possible ? Do I need to add anything if I want the HA gel and the silicone base to come together ?
I believe the silicone base is anhydrous so I can not add the HA to it just so ( as powder) right ? :-) :smile:
I apologize if I am talking rubbish - any advice is appreciated.Thank you
