Hello Dolls and Gents!
After spending hours reading Kassy's diy recipes, I decided to register and ask her or anybody else my question. I have been looking for a potent and effective serum that combines Alpha arbutin, Niacinamide, licorice acid and kojic acid with no success! Any input on their compatibility, the measurements... would be greatly appreciated Smile

You might look at the huge supplier listing on the Recipe Index, most have a lot of information on pH, solubility ect. and quite a few offer free formulas! Smile

Thank you for your replies!
Determined, I emailed them my questions and I came to the conclusion that it would be better to mix licorice extract, niacinamide and Aplha arbutin.
DarkMoon, very informative!

ascorbic acid 2-glucoside 2%
niacinamide 5%
lactic acid 2%
kojic acid (not more than 5%)
licorice extract 7%
alpha arbutin 5%

you could dissolve these in distilled water and add sea emollient and xanthan gum to make an easy serum. Add 0.5% preservative and put in a dark bottle.

Use this batch size calculator to work out the amounts according to how much you want to make:

http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/Calculators/Batch_Size_Calculator.aspx

You will need to adjust the pH up to 3.5-4.0 with some NaOH (because AA2G and lactic acid have very low/acidic pH).

Your try for a Regaliz brilante intense brightening serum is right mixtures for a potent botanical intense brightening serum. I recently bought it on cureka I see the goods result for brightening skinx. Share your comments if any of you used this.
