you, thank you, thank you!! Seriously, was looking for oil-free recipe for more than a year! Every time i put oil-free cream in a search box, the google gives something which i totally wasn't looking for...
Can i use
You are correct, however one is powder and only 50% bio available, the other is a thick clear liquid which is 100% bio available. I use the liquid one in that recipe. You'll need a bit of water in there to get it smooth with the B5, hydrosol will be lovely. Should work fine with MAP recipe as well.
You'll have to play a bit with it to see how you like the texture...more water will thin it out.
I use that as the base for the oil free SS, it sits beautifully on *my* skin.
I made a really nice moisturizer that you might like.
(I don't have measurements)
Hylauronic acid mixed with water until it forms a gel like substance.
Then add and mix:
Lecithin as emulsifier
Sea kelp bioferment
Ceramides mixed with just a little rosehip/seabuckthorn oil or other oil.
Some optional ingredients that I sometimes add:
You will probably want to add a preservative too.
This is a lightweight, simple, and non oily moisturizer. I use it every day and my skin really loves it. It makes my skin softer than any premade moisturizer I've tried so I'm going to stick to using this. If you try it, let me know how it works for you.
1 gram HA powder
100grams H20 Distilled [ cold water works better, but not a big deal]
0.5 grams preservative
Throw that in a sterilized container and SHAKE like a mad woman/man.....toss in the fridge. DONE. Wait a couple hours...shake intermittently.
Buy the powder and make your own, no point in paying 20 bucks for distilled water.
I use Phenoxyethanol. As I also use SKB and sea emollient in just about everything and those are preserved with the same biocide. It works across a large pH range and is well tolerated by most. There are many others, but that is my preference.
