Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our skin. As we age, we loose this. So adding a little to your skincare can help to replenish what we loose.
However, you really don't need much to make a difference.
In this formula I am including a Hyaluronic acid stock. This is a stock made up of mostly water, with 1% of Hyaluronic acid and a preservative.
When added at 30% as below, this gives us a 0.3% inclusion of Hyaluronic acid in the formula, which is more than enough to serve the benefits.

So, on with the formula for this mask.
Formula for a 100g batch
- 55.4% (55.4g) Lavender Hydrosol
- 30% (30g) Hyaluronic Acid 1% stock
- 10% (10g) Vegetable Glycerine
- 2.5% (2.5g) Solagum AX
- 2% (2g) Saligard PCG
- 0.1% (0.1g) Purple Mica
For this formula, you’ll need your hyaluronic acid stock. See my other video on how to do that.
First mix the Solagum and Mica into the vegetable glycerine until combined.
Add Hyaluronic acid stock and stir to combine.
Add the hydrosol and preservative and stir to combine.
Adjust pH to 4.5-5 (I had to adjust mine down using a 50/50 citric acid/water stock) I added a few drops until it came down to range.
If you want a thicker consistency or are using a low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, then you will want to add more Solagum.
The Hyaluronic acid that I am using is Sodium Hyaluronate, which forms a nice medium gel consistency when made into a stock.
If you want to use plain distilled water and add a fragrance, you will need to use a solubilizer.
