Basic Water-in-Silicone Serum Kit
Everything you need to create 300g (10 ounces) of the Basic Water-In-Silicone Serum shown in our Formulary. All you'll need to provide is distilled water.
The Basic Water-in-Silicone Serum Kit is made without actives or specialty ingredients. It is designed to give you practical experience with the technique of making water-in-silicone emulsions. When you're comfortable with the process, you can substitute water-soluble actives for some of the distilled water in the formula and start to create your own custom blends!
- 115g (3.8 oz) of Lotioncrafter Serum SE
- 30g (1.0 oz) Dipropylene Glycol
- 2g (0.07 oz) Sodium Citrate
- 2g (0.07 oz) Sodium Chloride
- 1g (0.03 oz) Tetrasodium EDTA
- 8g (0.25 oz) Liquid Germall Plus
Please note: This kit comes with MORE of each ingredient then you will need for the formulation, so a scale is essential to success! You can purchase a pack of 5 White Airless Treatment Pumps for your finished formulations here.
We've created a video so you can see the mixing process for working with Lotioncrafter Serum SE.** We've used a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer with a whisk attachment. You can also use a hand mixer with whisk or beaters attached. The very slow (trickle) addition of the water portion (aka phase) of the formula to the fast moving silicone phase in the mixing bowl is key to its successful creation.
** This video was specifically made for our Soothing and Clarifying Facial Serum formula made with Lotioncrafter Serum SE. It contains Hydrolyzed Oats in the water phase so the water phase is TAN in color in the video. It would be colorless without it.
