Emulsifier System for CBD in Toner
I am developing a toner aimed to hydrate and brighten. My
first step was to perfect the base formula prior to adding any CBD and that’s a
bit of uncharted territory for me. I feel good about the base formula, but I’m
completely out of my element with trying to incorporate the CBD.
Formula (no CBD)
Camu Extract 1.5%
fruit extract 1.5%
barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice powder 1%
Stem Cells 1%
hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) .2%
Tree Essential Oil .1%
essential oil .1%
The end product is a decently clear (still trying to make extremely
clear) with a pH of 3.7
Now the tricky part… full-spectrum CBD
First I just tested the emulsifying ratio needed to emulsify
1% of CBD oil using Polysorbate 20. It’s a whopping 30:1 ratio, which will
completely mess up the proportions I’ve established with the formula above.
Any tips or suggestions? Thanks so much!
