  • Hi  in general, if you are using Tensides / Emulsifiers close to the eye there is always the possibility of irritation.  I don't know exactly how harsh the PEG is that is used in this formulation (from your description not very good) but to reduce…
  • As Pharma said just add some Water Soluble Colour and add a 1 % Water solution of it on top of the product if it is Oil in water the Product will be colored over time if it is Water in oil Colour will stay at the top. 
  • Some change to Ethylsalicylate but it will in my experience with European authorities be banned next.  ( always going from smaller Molecules to bigger ones over time) Depending on the effect that the Methylsalicylate is there for I would suggest di…
  • the main deodorant ingredients are ZInc Ricinolat and Antimicrobial Raw Materials like Sodium Caproyl/Lauroyl LactylateI would always go with zinc Ricinolate because it has a Scent absorption/binding activity and does not harm the Microbiome of the …
  • hi from my experience Hair Conditioners are better the fewer ingredients they have. especially leave in conditioners.  I think the number of conditioning agents is too high. 1 % Polyquarternium 10 + 0.25 Cetrimonium chloride + 2% Bethentrimoniumchl…
  • hi  maybe they help  BEAUTYDERM HP by Sharon Laboratories Ltd - Personal Care & Cosmetics (ulprospector.com) EmulsiFlow® EXE by AE Chemie - Personal Care & Cosmetics (ulprospector.com)
  • hi  If you are using that high amounts of acid in your formulation I would think it may cores skin irritation over a longer time. although the taste of the product will be very sour... if this high concentration is needed for Effectiveness I can no…
  • hi there I don't think that an effect like in the picture is possible at all without color pigments (lipstick)  in general, you could use skin lightening raw materials but I am not sure if they are even possible to use so close to the mouth and lip…
  • I would suggest looking into the Raw materials from Alchemy  Oil Gelling - Alchemy Ingredients (alchemy-ingredients.com) the work really nice has a very pleasant feeling and can if Processed correctly be clear oil gels with a lot of water inside s…
  • My biggest problem until Now was to Formulate an SPF 50 Sunscreen product with just ZnO2 as a sunscreen filter... it is possible in theory but the solution is rather hard to find the way that the Distribution of the Product influences the Spf is jus…
  • hi There  I would say your Concentration of Carbopol is way too high1 % leads to Viscosity way above 50000 mpas  Looking at the INCI list of the Benchmark i would say use 0,3 % Carbopol. to get a better Viscosity Profile. I would recommend checkin…
  • I would assume it is the combination of Butters and Hard Waxes together with the Starch which helps with the rub-off. although Ceramide will give a pleasant feel afterward. 
  • Another Possibility: Sometimes if you Combin Different extracts there can be many side reactions due to the fact that there are several Molukules solved in various extracts that can course reactions. do you get flocculation with the change of color …
  • Thanks for the Answers. it seems to be difficult to organize some data on skin effectiveness for CBD that is what I found as well. hmm, I will try my supply maybe they have some data for it even if the scientific profoundness is not that good :) 
  • I can Suggest Baycusan Types for Spf boosting and Water Resistance. it sPolyurethan and as far as I know they even have data on Biodegradability to avoid the micro Plastic Discussion. 
  • depends on Preservative use and in general its good to know if you have a ph shift during stability testing 
  • I want to throw in that it is quite Problematik to Mix Oils and Bentonite or Clay they absorb the oil very intensely and then will not have the Capability to do what they need to do on the skin. You use Clay in an Anti-acne mask because of the fact …
  • oh sorry misunderstood that  :D i was so irritated by that 110 i never thought of the F scale for that 
  • hi There  Heating Water to 110 °C is literally impossible. your water will evaporate a lot in the Lab it may not be a problem but in the Production, it will be.  For the wax / Oil phase I would suggest you switch at least some of the Candelilla wa…
  • Some ingredients that can reduce Takines of Xanthan gum depending on formulation are -Acacia Collagen (Lipoid) -SUCCINOGLYCAN (Reozahn SH Solvey) -As mentioned by Abdullah gum Arabic Adding some Oils that have a good long time Spreading curve
  • hi, there it can happen because of the may Ions that are contained in the Hectorite. if you look into the Specification they will give you some information i would guess. maybe you need to capture them in your formulation with an EDTA or something e…

  • Do you mean a mask that is bubbling up by itself after application?  if so it is a O2 enriched raw material INCI Perfluorohexane (and) Perfluorodecalin (and) Pentafluoropropane  name: Fiflow® BB 61 From the "the innovation company" Examp…

  • silicon will deposit as far as it is not already solubilized by your surfactant if it deposits it will Stay on the Hair better.  For Cationics the more you rinse the more will be washed off.  That's at least my understanding of Solubility and Adhe…
  • Hmm well, I guess it's likely that you can rinse Cationic Products from your hair with water alone due to the fact that they are in general soluble in water. The amount that gets taken off is not completely as we can see in the different tests that …
  • You can use Isopropyl alcohol for a Body Spray at least in Europe. The smell is more intense than with Ethanol but its cheaper and some internet "analysis Tools" for Cosmetic Formulations rank Isopropoylalcohl better than Ethanol  Just be…

hi yes with w/O emulsions you should add the conservation system to the water phase previously of Emulsification. The Theory is that after building the Emulsion if you add other water-soluble ingredients or in this case actives that…
  • hi there  Well, it is somehow difficult. Normally if a supplier Writes down an Exp date for an ingredient and you are not an expert or have the possibility to retest the product you should not use it any longer.  In general, if you can confirm tha…
  • ph for sorbic acid needs to be below 5.5 if you have a high ph and your customer doesn't mind using Paraben it's the most efficient and safe one. if they do just use Phenoxyethanol around 1 % should be fin than I would say.
  • hi There  Why do you need the Ph if the Product is not easy to measure because of the low water concentration? you can just not include ph measuring. If you still want to do mote go by a dilution of 1/10 to measure that.  For the Specific Gravity,…
  • hi there  If Slip means Conditioning your second Formulation will be Preforming much better. In your first formulation, you did not add any Conditioning agents that will stay on the Hair after rinse. The Oils may be helping a little to give the Shi…
