Home Cosmetic Science Talk Formulating HLB of Bakuchi Oil

  • HLB of Bakuchi Oil

    Posted by KimberlyLars on May 21, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    Hello All,
    I’m hoping someone can help with this. Bakuchi oil goes by so many names, and after a ton of research I haven’t been able to find the HLB value. If someone could help me out with a resource or anything, I’d really appreciate it!

    I seriously doubt that you will find an HLB for Bakuchiol.  It really is of no great significance since you are most likely only going to use 1% or less in a formula.

    Also, pay close attention to the fact that bakuchi oil and bakuchiol are two different things/products.
