    Hello, I want to mix a couple bases and color concentrates together that I found, and wanted to know if it was safe to do so. I have the ingredients of the bases and will list them below..

    Base #1 contains: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose , Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isobutyl Acetate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Adipic Acid / Neopentyl Glycol / Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Silica, Styrene / Acrylates Copolymer, N-Butyl Alcohol, Benzophenone-1. May contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Red 28, Red 22, Orange 5, Yellow 11, Violet 2 ext, Red 6, Red 7, Yellow 6, Yellow 5, Blue 1, Ultramarines, Bismuth Oxychloride.

    Base #2 contains: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isobutyl Acetate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Silica, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, N-Butyl Alcohol, Benzophenone-1, Violet 2

    Base #3: Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Adipic Acid / Neopentyl Glycol / Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Benzophenone-1, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Polyvinyl Butyral, D&C Violet #2

    Concentrate 1: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Acrylates Copolymer, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Benzophenone-1, Silica, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Titanium Dioxide

    Concentrate 2: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose , Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isobutyl Acetate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Adipic Acid / Neopentyl Glycol / Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Silica, Styrene / Acrylates Copolymer, N-Butyl Alcohol, Benzophenone-1. May contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Red 28, Red 22, Orange 5, Yellow 11, Violet 2 ext, Red 6, Red 7, Yellow 6, Yellow 5, Blue 1, Ultramarines, Bismuth Oxychloride.

    These are the bases and concentrates that I want to mix together, but wanted to know if there’s an ingredient that will cause any problems if mixed together? Also, will any of these bases will need a preservative?

    Last question, I know that some people want to stay away from benzophenone because of concerns of being an endocrine disruptor. Is this true? Should this be of any concern? I ask because my team, and also our customers will be using these products and wanted to know the side effects, if any, since these bases contain Benzophenone-1.
