Non comedogenic ingredients for TEWL?
Hello guys,I am looking for an ingredient(s) that I can use in a hydrating oil free facial serum that is very beneficial in TEWL prevention and moisturization. However, it must be safe for acneic skin. I know each persons skin is different, but I figure there’s a few safe bets out there will a good change it would be ok to use.My skin type is very acne prone, however it is also sensitive and usually dehydrated and tight feeling. With this skin type, the common ingredients that would help for moisture, like oils, fatty acids, waxes, silicones and mineral oils end up causing me grief in the shape of pimples, blocked pores and irritation.
This is why finding a moisturizing ingredient for me is a huge challenge and I realIze a tall order.
I have recently formulated my own facial serum, which has done a fairy good job so far. However, I really am keen to find an ingredient that will work well for barrier repair and TEWL minimization.My formula:
propylene glycol- 3%Optiphen - .5%Distilled water - 65.8%Sodium carbomer- .2%Urea- 7%Honeyquat - 5%
hydrolyzed oats- 5%Licorice root extract- 5%Niacinimide- 3%Allantoin- .5%Natrasmooth (lotioncrafter. Made of: Water, Tremella Fuciformis Sporocarp Extract, Betain, Glycerin) - 5%———any suggestions or critiques I would be very open to hear. I am new to formulations so I am sure I am missing a few critical ingredients or proportions are not exactly right …
