Triethanolamine in Lotion
When formulating a lotion, what role does TEA play? Is it just as a pH adjuster?
If so, is there a minimum amount required or should I just put enough to reach the desired pH.
We are currently putting 0.8% of TEA 99% but the pH is too high. If I half this, would it affect anything else other than the pH?
Below is the current formulaSTEARIC ACID 2.00G. M. S 2.00C. S. A 1.00I. P. M 0.50P. JELLY 1.00WHITE OIL 7.00GLYCERINE 2.50M.P.G 0.50T. E. A 0.80DIMETHICONE 0.25M. PARABEN 0.20H2O 82.25
