Home Cosmetic Science Talk Formulating NIACINAMIDE


    Posted by imanebouziane on August 14, 2023 at 6:03 am


    I formulated an o/w cream, and I did the stability tests, and it is stable, and I wanted from the same formula to reduce 4% of the water and to put niacinamide instead, so there the cream certainly has a very good texture but testing it with centrifugation at 3500 rpm for 30 min then there is a separation. can someone guide me? I tried two formulation methods 1: dilute niacinamide in the water of the aqueous phase and emulsify by controlling the temperature (not exceeding 75°C) and the 2nd: add niacinamide to the cold phase but always separation of the emulsion. what is wrong here?

    ????i used stearic acid 2%

    emulagde 1000 ni 4 % CUTINA GMS 2% USING high shear 30 till 65°C then low shear till 45°C checking ph 5.6

    any advices????

    Could you provide any more details? (at least full inci, final pH). How does the separation look?

    Also, have you already done a knock-out experiment? Is the ‘base’ stable without NA?

    When you say that your original formula passed the stability tests, what tests did you do and for how long? Centrifugue aloneis not such a hard condition (many unstable emulsions can pass the centrifugue and the separate during the accelerated stability).
