    Please can you give the inci names of each ingredient and the % you used of each ingredient.  Please also describe what you mean by “absorption”.

    For Joanne

    Re your question: the molecule PEG-32 is far
    too big to penetrate. According to our theory molecules like PEG-4 or maybe PEG-4 Laurate or Polyglyceryl-2
    Caprate might be worth wile to consider.

    We are Scandinavian based engineering consultants
    and safety Assessors in cosmetics since 2002.

    At the IFSCC conference in Orlando October 2016
    we will be giving a poster presentation on a nice technology for choosing
    alternative, natural ingredients.

    Joanne, use ethoxydiglycol for absorption enhancement of water-borne additives like those you describe. For oil-soluble materials, I’ll recommend dimethyl isosorbide.
