  • vegetable shortening???

    Posted by natiyo123 on April 12, 2022 at 5:24 pm

    Hello I was wondering if I could use vegetable shortening (crisco and similar ones) to be used in an anhydrous stick product to decrease hardness and increase slip. Im aware a lot of hydrogenated oils are used in cosmetics, so would edible grade work? is there any difference? would it be comedogenic?

    Lots of questions here…I am flooded…but here goes:
    Affirmative, use vegetable shortening (hydrogenated vegetable oil) in your formula; edible grade works same as cosmetic grade; there is no difference; it is very comedogenic.

    can I ask one last question?? assuming the rest of my formula has 0 comedogenicity potential, how much would u suggest to be my maximum usage level % . An approximate value to know where to start my tests???

    Which oil would you use?
    1-5% would not be a problem.
