C+E+Ferulic sample recipes
There are many ways this product can be formulated. The above recipe is but one example.
In an acidic formulation Gelmaker is recommended to be used at 3.8%. This makes a very drying lotion. I have used it at 1% and it will form a good emulsion. The emulsion may not last for a long time, but as this product does not use a preservative and is supposed to be made fresh every week, there is no problem.
IF you plan on keeping this for longer than 1 week, you will need to increase the amount of Gelmaker and add a preservative.
You can decrease the amount of water and increase the amount of ethanol, this will make the product more stable.
You could leave the water out all together, and use glycerin to dissolve the L-ascorbic acid. You could then increase the amount of ethanol to make a more stable product. However, glycerin will make the product sticky; this can be reduced substantially by adding our silicone gel.
Some people like to use Seakelp Bioferment. You can replace the HA gel with the Seakelp bioferment, or you can decrease the water content by 15%, and add 15% seakelp bioferment.
