Home Cosmetic Science Talk Formulating Salicylic acid formulation

  • Salicylic acid formulation

    Posted by Maryceline on October 3, 2020 at 10:40 am

    Hello great chemists! 
    I am an undergraduate Biochemistry student. I want to formulate a 1% salicylic acid toner and here is my procedure. 
    1 gram salicylic acid powder
    20ml alcohol
    79ml water

    I dissolve the SA powder in alcohol and add slowly to the 79ml of water. 
    Is this a great process of formulation? And what pH would this make?
