  • Lauryl laurate …. where is that magic inclusion rate (face cream)?

    No secret i love my emollients, and lauryl laurate finds its way into about every formula.

    I have been working to prefect a face cream for a couple of years, and still am not there yet. I have been playing ’emollient musical chairs’ for the last few weeks. Typically I use LL at 2%, plus a cascading package in support.

    Recently I tried 4% + package. Lauryl laurate is generally described as a waxy ester, but at 2% I have never felt the waxy aspect. With 4%, I could feel some type of barrier was there, shortly after application (bedtime). The following morning…face skin felt like a babies bottom. Pretty magical. Has anyone found that magical amount/inclusion rate,….where the barrier is imperceptible, but the babies bottom is still there? I have paired it with Ethylhexyl Isononanoate and Dicaprylyl Carbonate.

    Ahh…the irony…. misspelling ‘perfect’.
