    Hello I am new to formulating and I am getting more into Korean beauty. I am curious about making an essence but I’m not sure how to go about creating it. I’m in a course right now and we learned how to make toners but would it be similar to a toner or serum because Essences are kind of in between as far as the consistency and feel?

    Is there a benchmark product that has some attributes you’d like to replicate or build on? I’d start by looking at what’s already in the market and what ingredients those products contain. You will start to notice if there are commonalities and researching what functions the ingredients can have will help you start to plan your own formulation.

    Skin Essence is a marketing term. You can call your product whatever you want.
