‘Eau de Parfum’ in O/W Emulsions?
I’ve been preparing skin care products for about a year now, for own use and for my family.
I only make non scented moisturizers for myself, because most ‘scent-ingredients’ are too irritating for my skin. However, some family members do want scented products, so I’m looking for an answer for my following question.
(I don’t know how it is elsewhere, but here in Europe, perfumes are categorized as follows (from light to strong):
- eau de Cologne;
- eau de Toilette;
- eau de Parfum;
Instead of using essential oils for example, is it possible to use your own perfume in an emulsion if the % oil is high enough, like in Parfum or Eau de Parfum? I can imagine that the top note of the fragrance will evaporate quickly. I do hope it is possible to make a stable scented emulsion this way though.
Thanks in advance for helping me with this.
