‘Natural’ swap outs for a fun moisturiser
Happy Wednesday everyone.
Okay, I’m formulating something for a client and they want a fun product for their customer, a kind of DIY moisturiser that the customer makes up every day. They take a pressed tab of the product below, add a tsp of water , zap in the microwave for 30s, then add more water and stir. No preservatives necessary and great for travel.
Anyhoo, they want it to be a natural and vegan. I’ve explained that getting it 100% natural is a tall order and also that natural is a pretty loose term, but they’ve asked me to look at it. I could do with some help on some of the swap outs . A lot of this formula is natural anyway, but a couple are making me scratch my head.
The alternatives are in brackets, but of course, I will bow to the knowledgeable ones on the forum and take any suggestions.
