Time Defy Facial Serum

Lotioncrafter Serum SE is a proprietary blend of self emulsifying silicone fluids designed to make the creation of water-in-silicone emulsions (or serums) simple. Along with Lotioncrafter Serum SE, serums are created and stabilized using a sodium chloride/sodium citrate buffer. This reduces interfacial tension and improves stability, as does the addition of glycerin and/or glycols (dipropylene, propylene or butylene glycol). These also contribute to increased preservative efficacy. This is a cold process emulsion, therefore if you have concerns about the quality of your water, heat it to 180°F and cool it to room temperature before proceeding. High shear (stick blender) mixing is not required; mixing with a stand mixer at moderate to high speed is preferred.

In this deluxe formulation, allantoin is added for its soothing properties, while Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (a stable form of Vitamin C) and Q-Max Coenzyme Q10 are added for their antioxidant properties.  Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and DL-Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5) help improve the appearance of skin tone and texture. Lotioncrafter Defense Complex is added to minimize the appearance of fine lines. This formula produces a light greaseless serum with a velvety smooth finish on the skin.

1. Combine Phase A ingredients in mixing vessel and set aside.

2. Combine all Phase B ingredients and stir to dissolve.

3. Using a stand or hand mixer on moderate to high speed, begin to add Phase B ingredients to the Phase A mixing vessel in a very slow stream (slow addition is critical). Once all of the water is incorporated, continue mixing 10-15 minutes until the emulsion is smooth and uniform. The final lengthy mixing will insure a smaller, uniform droplet size of the discontinuous water phase, improving long term stability.

4. Add fragrance, if desired.
