I was hoping someone can tell me what I did incorrectly. I am trying to make a AHA fruit acid face serum. I added these ingredients all in a beaker and used low shear to gel. For some reason, it stayed liquid and did not gel. I have made different gels using Septinov EMT before and had no issues. It seems to be the Fruit Acid Mix I bought from Formulator Sample Shop. However, it says on many websites that this gelling agent tolerates all AHAs or fruit acid mixes. The one I purchased is soluble in water. Can anyone tell me where I might have gone wrong?
