Or would that somehow destablize it? And can I use it on my face and neck area?
For 10ml Jergens lotion you'll have to add 2ml LA thats of 88%concentration. Two ml is a little less than half teaspoon.HEY dazzle, I have 10ml of jergen lotion and 88% of LA, I want to make 15% LA lotion. How many teaspoon or tablespoon or ml can I add to the lotion? thx
Soo how much LA should I add to get it to exfoliate?The main thing about amlactin is not its percentage but the ph at which it is set to. Amlactin has a ph of 4.5-5.5 which is not going to do must exfoliating. Mostly moisturising. Light exfoliating over time yes. If you add in some high percentage lactic acid (lets say 88 or 90%) which has a low ph of usually around 0.6 this will boost the effectiveness of your new amlactin.
Try getting some cheap ph strips off ebay and do a test( type in ph strips narrow range and look for 0.5 to 5.0). Your going to want between 3 and 4 to get good exfoliating. The lower the ph the more FAV ( free acid value) is avaliable to work on the skin. So in reality Amlactin says its a 12% la lotion but in reality only 5% of this acid is even working. And 5% lactic acid is only known to increase moisture in the skin.
40% because I'm a beginner, later I plan to use 88% after a month though.im not really sure i would say maybe a teaspoon then try it one night. Then if thats okay maybe two. What percentage of LA are you adding in? its easier to just buy a base lotion and make la lotion from scratch if you actually have the LA
