  • pH and BHA’s solubility

    Hello, I want to ask something about the relationship between pH and solubility of BHA.

    Today I did a serum with 1% BHA. I mix 1% BHA with 12% PG and 10% ethanol, then I add this phase (now I call it phase B ) to water, and the recrystallization appeared. The pH is 3.1

    After that, I did another experiment, I add more TEA (triethanolamine) to the water, then I add phase B (BHA+PG+Ethanol) into water and no recrystallization happened. Now pH is 3.5

    I wonder if the pH will affect the solubility of the BHA? Or any reaction happened?
