Im 45 years old; average looking skin for my age. Applied a small pea sized amount of Sea Kelp Bioferment to my face full strength in the am after washing my face of previous night makeup.; let face "dry". Then aplied my foundation as always. Noticed my thick, heavy foundation applied more easily and smooth. Keep in mind this is DAY TWO of me using this. TWO women at work ( separate departments) commented how wonderful my face looked! One specifically came up to me and asked what I was.. ...»

The Pre-dissolved solution is excellent. Ferulic Acid is an amazing skincare ingredient (potent antioxidant, protects other sensitive antioxidants from light degradation, UV protection) but is absolutely ineffective if it isn't solubilized correctly. Makes adding to any Serum Base or w/o emulsion easy. Love using it (at 6%; so active 0.5%) with the Resveratrol Fluid (10%; active 1%) and Green Tea Extr for potent nighttime brightening treatment... ...»
Carla, Many medications can be and are applied topically by prescription. With that in mind, realize that this particular ingredient is wonderful but understand that this is indeed one of those that may create sensitivity with those already using topical hormones or just use sparingly and see how you respond. Sorry for the very late response..... ...»
Many thanks for the Silicone DM. This product is lovely quality; it is light, silky, and leaves no residue at all. I use it in the base recipe for a mouldable polymer that I then use to make a simulated 'Amber' for bead making. At the end of this process I have a silky, translucent polymer plus the most gorgeous hands in the studio ! My thanks again, Helen.. ...»
Very good product! Only been using it for a short time, its already made a difference. .. ...»

Wanting to try this, but.... Angela, what was that about effecting hormones? Could someone explain please..... ...»
I wished i could order this in a smaller amount of 50 gr. Can i get informed when it is available ? -------------------- A. It will not be sold in smaller amounts. The review rating is meant to be for the product, not the size in which it is sold :-(.. ...»
I am following the moisturizing cream + Zinc dispersion recipe and I am extremely satisfied. I do allow for a little time for it to absorb in & then I dab off anything that I feel looks a little white - but that's because I initially use a fairly thick coating on myself. I use a bit of foundation at times on top and there are no issues as far as weird colors or texture issues. I am so grateful for this entire website as a one-stop-shop for such effective skin care products, and now we can.. ...»
Excellent quality, very fine texture and disperses easily when used correctly. Arrived in just seven days to London, England and with a reasonable postage fee. Very pleased... ...»

Pre Liposome Microemulsion Base

Pre Liposome Microemulsion Preparation Base, is especially suited as carrier for active ingredients in light lotions or serums. Pre Liposome Microemulsion Base is a micro-emulsion premix based on hydrogenated soybean lecithin and olive squalane. Pre Liposome Microemulsion Preparation Base forms clear to translucent preparations with excellent texture just by diluting with water. BulkActives' Pre Liposome Microemulsion Base allows to prepare clear / translucent formulations with various oily ingredients, such as oil-soluble vitamins, vegetable oils, esters, hydrocarbons and silicone oils. Larger amounts of oily ingredients can be incorporated in the product without the texture being affected by high surfactant levels. Hydrogenated soybean lecithin works as a natural emulsifier and promotes penetration of actives into the skin.  Liposomes are synthetic microscopic vesicles with an external, fully enclosed double lipid membrane of phospholipids. Liposomes are not active themselves, but function in creams as carriers of  active substances to enhance penetration into the skin's fatty layers.

Pre Liposome Microemulsion Base in skin care:

  • penetration enhancer
  • base serum/lotion
  • emulsifier

About Pre Liposome Microemulsion Base in DIY Skin Care

liposomes in skin careLiposomes are microscopic fluid-filled bodies, similar to biological cells. Like the natural cell membranes of human skin cells, liposomes consist of a bilayer with PC-Phosphatidylcholine (Soybean lecithin) as its main component.  Liposomes are very similar to the different layers of the skin barrier; hence combines well with cell membranes, bi-layers and acid mantle. Due to their mimicking ability of the core component of the liposome they merge easily with the skin’s natural barrier layers, allowing the active ingredients to penetrate effectively. This natural substance has proven to be the most compatible ingredient used in skin care today and is the most suitable carrier of skin actives such as: peptides, vitamins, amino acids, herbs, and botanicals for Skin Care and Cosmeceutical formulations.

Microemulsions are clear, stable, isotropic mixtures of oil, water, and surfactant, frequently in combination with a cosurfactant. Microemulsions have been intensively studied during the last decades by many scientists and technologists because of their great potential in many food and pharmaceutical applications. The use of microemulsions is advantageous not only due to the facile and low cost preparation, but also because of the improved bioavailability. The increased absorption of skin actives s in topical applications is attributed to enhancement of penetration through the skin by the carrier. Saturated and unsaturated fatty acids serving as an oil phase are frequently used as penetration enhancers.
