Carbomer Gel / Serum ... The perfect gel / serum starter recipe.  Using this basic starter gel / serum recipe you can learn how to make a gel / serum.  Once you've perfected your technique you can get creative to produce any type of gel / serum.  The purpose of a gel / serum is the targeted delivery of actives.  Every gel / serum should absorb readily to deliver your actives into the tissues. 


Ingredients:

Phase A

 

Make Formula
100 g
48.0% Distilled Water or Purified Water
2.0% Gluconolactone & Sodium Benzoate (GSB) (Preservative)
0.9% Tetrasodium EDTA
 
Phase B
48.2% Distilled Water or Purified Water
0.9% Carbomer 940
 

Phase A: Combine and mix well using a stick blender, avoid getting splashed.

Phase B: Combine the water and Carbomer gently, hydrate for a minimum of 1 hour, or until fully hydrated with no evidence of grit or clumps (should be very smooth), avoid getting splashed. Once fully hydrated combine with Phase A with adequate agitation.

Phase C: To modify this gel for other applications simply replace a portion of the water phase from Phase A to account for your specific ingredients and add those ingredients here. For example: if you'd like to make an anti-aging serum you could add 3% Botopical and 1% LiPlump. To do this you would subtract 4% from the water in Phase A, which would then be 45% (450 gms) and proceed as instructed. After combining Phase A with Phase B you would then add your Botopical and LiPlump.

This product will be very foamy.  Allow it to settle for several hours to a full day before packaging.
