Formulating Cosmetic Bases
I hope you all are doing well. I had a questions regarding formulating cosmetic bases. I’ve noticed suppliers like Making Cosmetics, Essential Labs, and Wholesale Supplies Plus carry a wide range of bases from body to liquid foundations, etc. When formulating these types of bases, is there a particular way to formulate them?
For example, Making Cosmetics body cream base instructions states that up to 10% of liquids can be added to customize it (doesn’t specify whether lipids or water-based materials though :-/). If this is the case, would one use less “liquid” when formulating the base? Just trying to get a general idea if there is a special rule/technique when formulating cosmetic bases. Thank you for your time.
