Hello everyone,

Im making an eye cream, and I wonder if you can help me with my formular?

- Sea Kelp as a base
- Chrysin for dark circles (water based)
- Lecithin (reduce fast deposits - emulsifies)
- Vitamin K1 (oil based)

Can i mix these things together, even though the vitamin K1 is oil based? My impression is that the lecithin will acts as a emulsifier, so its possible?

And if i want to se an effect, can I ad more then the recommended 2% of chrysin?

What do you guys think?

I'm not so sure that lecithin will act as an emulsifier, as it can be very bity and needs a lot of mixing.

With percentages, you are better off starting slowly and then increasing once you see how your face responds. I wouldn't usually advise going past the recommended levels of anything as often there is very good reason for them to be in place.

the best solutions is to massage your skin using coconut oil every night before going to bed. Trust me it will do wonders to your skin.

Best thing to do is to massage the area with almond oil before going to bed or rub a slice of potato. Do this alternatively and you shall see the results soon.
