I haven’t used hyaluronic acid for years since I read that the large molecules can’t penetrate and the small molecules creates a pro-inflammatory reaction to the skin.
I used propendiaol 1,3 in my last batch and didn’t like the texture. I never liked glycerin Lately aloe made my eyes water. There is always good ol’ sea kelp bio ferment but it pills with makeup.
Some times all a girl needs is a humectant. Honey is a great humectant and I enjoy the feeling of the skin after I clean off my honey mask but it is expensive and inconvenient. This texture is really good but I felt it lacks emolliency. I had a hard time trying to resist adding oils to this water based lotion. Instead, I add a few drops of oil after the serum.
