Formulating Low pH Skin Care With Naturally Derived Ingredients
Naturally-derived thickening and stabilizing ingredients may be incorporated into formulations containing low pH actives. These ingredients are efficient thickeners and provide emulsion stabilization, rheology modification, and a unique conditioned skin feel.
Select naturally- derived polymers, including starch and xanthan gum, offer the benefit of stability and the assurance of consumer-desirable sensory attributes in formulations with a low pH range. This paper looks at formulations that include renewable, sustainable ingredients as a strategy for maintaining stability and trouble-free manufacturing of low pH range formulas.
