Trying to formulate an anhydrous (Ecocert) serum to suspend l-ascorbic acid
Hi, I'm new here, but I've been so impressed with this forum's high-quality posts, I just had to jump in. Especially since I'm trying to formulate without silicones.
Here's the deal; I've been successful creating a non-separating, anhydrous, silicone based serum to suspend 20% l-ascorbic acid (and additional actives). This silicone based serum is light, with a nice dry finish.
But - with all the bad press about silicones - I am trying to formulate my anhydrous serum from vegetable derived (or Ecocert) ingredients.
Can anyone help me come up with a basic silicone-free serum formula that will suspend 20% l-ascorbic acid, not separate, and leave a dry (non-oily) finish?
