    Posted by amitvedakar on September 28, 2023 at 3:36 am

    Made Gel of

    PEG 400 50%, PEG 4000 25%, EDTA 15%, UREA 5%, H2O2-5%.

    After week it’s losses viscosity.

    Any guesses?? pH= 7.2

    can adding ACID phoshate help?

    same also made of HEC gel also loosing viscosity.

    Hmm wear is the gelling agent? you are just creating Viskosity by adding high melting PEG 4000 aren’t you? i would gues you destroy your PEG cains with the high potent Urea hydrogen peroxide you are Greeting with this mixture.

    However, what is the purpose of this formulation? is that a cosmetic product or a bleaching agent? Combining urea and H2O2 will lead to the formation of Urea hydrogen peroxide (CH6N2O) which is a very potent Bleaching product what are the 15 % EDTA for ?

      PEG-400 & 4000 melted together. I think pH roll is important here. I try keeping different different pH.

    I am with gordof here: why so much EDTA? It doesn’t make any sense. Is there a decimal point missing? Also not especially safe orally.
