    for exple

     phase A

    -glycerin 3%
    -PG 5%
    -Glycolic acid 2%
    lactic acid 2%
    citric acid 2%

    phase B

    mineral oil 10%

    How about just adding a lot of caramel? Cheap and easy: a skin colorant rather than skin lightener? That formula of yours will need a lot of work, though: another story altogether.

    Currently you pH might be as low as to 1. Get rid of the vitamin C and vitamin E. They only complicate everything. pKa of both lactic and glycolic acid is 3.8 so keep the pH around that. Why your dimethicone in the cool down phase?

    No, this is not how it works. First of all what is your skin type on Fitzpatrick scale? Your formula isn’t able to change your skin color. There is no safe way to change it.
