Serum vs oil?
Hello, if I am interested in making a serum with Argan oil and Bakuchiol (as the active ingredient), would this be considered a serum or an oil?
I see that some oils are marketed as a serum if they contain ingredients that are meant to change the skin in a specific way, vs just moisturizing for example.
But serums generally are solutions that are made up of small molecules which allow for deeper penetration of the active ingredient. I am maybe assuming that this requires a mixer with a high spin speed and some kind of emulsifier (I do have access to a mixer that makes lotions).
In this case, we only have these 2 ingredients (though I could change this if necessary).
Thank you so much for your insights with this
