Redness and Irritation in Eye Serum

Hello, These are the ingredients I am using in an eye serum I am developing. I have had a few people I am testing it on develop redness, I thought it was the Cucumber Hydrosol but I am wondering if it's the Vit B3.  Any thoughts on these ingredients for eye serum?

    B3! Sure to be. Someone offered me a 500mg supplement. I took it. Within half an hour I thought I was going to spontaneously combust.

    Eye serum ! What is it 🤔.  Is it for applications on eyes ? Or is it an eye related product ? 
    Are you maintaining the acceptable range of CFU for an eye related product.
