    Posted by Pavalosk on March 15, 2023 at 7:55 pm


    Does anyone have any guesses on how this might be done? These ingredients below are from a very popular brand in my country, it is a hair serum (finishing oil)

    Isoamyl Laurate, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil (Argan Oil), Glycerin, Kappaphycus Alvarezii Extract (and) Laminaria Saccharina Extract (and) Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Protein (and) Hydrolyzed Soy Protein (and) GLycine, Fragrance/Parfum Citral, Citronellol, Coumarin, Hexyl Cinnamal, d-Limonene, Linalool

    How without emulsifier?

    Usually they just choose to leave out the ingredients that do not have pretty and natural names. 🙁 This also helps keep ‘copy cats’ to a minimum.

    Most extracts in skincare are glycerin based. When manufacturer add the extract they have to list glycerin too. Since extract is most likely just a marketing ingredient and added on 0.01% amount to have it on the label, I don’t think there is an issue to mix 0.01% of glycerin with 99.9% oils. If it precipitates you won’t even notice. So your product is basically a mix of 2 first ingredients
