    Why is My DIY kojic acid/arbutin/glycolic acid lotion gritty with crystals???

    I made a KA (8%), Arbutin (8%) and GA (5%). It ends up being gritty with these whitish crystals in the lotion. How do I prevent this from reoccurring? How do I make that batch less gritty??

    Were you adding this to a base lotion or something else?? Were you following a recipe?
