Skincare Ingredients Haul – Formulator Sample Shop & Lotioncrafter
so if you’re wondering what this all is um while you’re watching the video i had an allergic reaction to something i’m not quite sure what that thing was still trying to figure it out but that’s that’s what that is if you’re wondering hey what’s up guys so i figured i’d do a little bit more of a chill video today because that’s just that’s just how i’m feeling today it’s monday let’s do something chill let’s do an unboxing you can’t even see the boxes but i promise they’re here i hope you guys enjoy halls i don’t know maybe you do maybe you don’t i guess if you don’t you probably didn’t even want to click on this video so first off we have a formulator sample shop as you guys know this is like my go-to place i always buy everything from go check them out go follow them on instagram so the first thing i got from formulair sample shop is some more alantoine allentown is an ingredient i use all the freaking time because as you guys know i have sensitive skin hence the allergic reaction i guess um i have really sensitive skin i really love alan twine and i think it’s a good ingredient to put in a lot of different products just for soothing benefits because i don’t know you know everybody needs some soothing properties like even when it comes to like acne prone skin it’s good to use soothing ingredients as well because acne is irritating to the skin for example if you’re making a product that’s like exfoliating that could be irritating to the skin but sometimes people need that exfoliation when they have acne so it’s good to like counteract that with like a soothing ingredient hence alan twain that’s when that comes in no oh no oh no oh no okay well that just happened um this is louisiana sf complete uh it looks like she did leak a little bit as you can see from the label she did have a seal but i guess it didn’t hold it doesn’t feel like much came out so no biggie you know that happens totally understand but luicidal sf completes this is an antibacterial preservative that i do use sort of as a antibacterial agent rather than as a broad spectrum preservative in my formulations and that’s what she is for then we have some cucumber extract love this stuff very soothing it’s great for like under eye creams it’s not really much to say about it i just really like cucumber extract we have some retinol liposome pf this is a water-soluble retinol liposome so if you do want to work with retinol it is a very expensive ingredient this is 2 ounces and i paid 50 for it but it’s a lot cheaper as opposed to the oil soluble retinol liposome which is like a hundred and thirty dollars i believe so if you want retinol definitely try this it’s a much cheaper alternative and it’s easy to formulate with since it is water soluble and then we have some vitamin e oil use this all the time it’s great to help keep anhydrous products from going rancid and it’s a great oil for the skin it’s also an antioxidant as well so it’s rich in antioxidants so i always recommend like having some sort of antioxidant in products when you make them we got some chamomile extract again a really great soothing ingredient just like cucumber extract um i don’t know it’s just like a staple extract i feel like chamomile cucumber and green tea extracts are like staples that you just like have to have maybe that’s just me got some wheat protein i feel like this is personally my skin’s favorite uh protein is wheat protein hydrolyzed wheat protein i don’t know my skin just really likes it there’s lots of different proteins out there but that’s definitely my skin’s favorite protein to use and that’s it that’s everything from formulator sample shop i actually do have another order coming in the mail hopefully well it’s not in the mail yet it’s still being processed but hopefully it’s here soon because i need those ingredients now moving on to lotion crafter this is definitely a much bigger box we got here so first off we have it two 1000 milliliter glass speakers these are the beakers i use most often because i make large batches for my etsy shop as opposed to me making small batches on my youtube channel typically i make large batches and i use these all the time i probably have 10 of these now i i could honestly probably use even more but they’ve been on sale on lotion crafter for a while now i’m not sure if it’s a close-out item or if they’re just they just have them on sale but i picked two up because they’re on sale and i need them i will say though that their little pore spigots are not the best at all so i typically use these specific beakers from lotion crafter more for like body scrubs and things that aren’t really a very low viscosity because the horsepower just really sucks the beakers that i typically have linked to in my description box on my channel are the beakers that i have the most of and those are my favorite beakers as opposed to these ones these horse pickets just they just suck to be honest they’re not the best next we have some aloe vera 200 times powder that’s not showing up on camera whatsoever people have been complaining that this stuff is too expensive and i do agree it is expensive for a one ounce bag but the thing is is that this ingredient can be used at point zero one percent to point five percent i believe you really only need a very very very very very tiny bit of this stuff in your formulations for it to work i think i’ve used pretty high percentages here on my channel you do not need me that much at all you really only need a tiny bit of it and this is actually the ingredients used to make aloe vera liquid they just use a very tiny amount of this stuff in their aloe vera liquid when you purchase it so honestly this is the cheaper alternative as opposed to buying aloe vera liquid and also it’s just a much smaller container as opposed to a big gallon container you have to have aloe vera liquid so ever since i tried this out i was very hesitant to switch into aloe vera powder since i’ve always been used to using aloe vera liquid but after i switched to this i’m never using aloe vera liquid again this is definitely this is way better it takes up way less room and your little formulating collection area then i got some rose clay i’ve actually never purchased rose clay from lotion crafter i think theirs is pretty expensive compared to other places but the place that i typically purchase it from has been out of stock for who knows how long book applicary i’m looking at you i’m a lot of you guys have mentioned to me that they are always out of stock and you’re trying to figure out if that website’s actually a scam or not no it’s not a scam they are legit their prices are just so freaking good i think they just sell out of things so quickly because of that i don’t know i can never buy anything honestly from there at all anymore because it’s always out of stock right now all of their fragrances and uh flavors you know for like lip scrubs and stuff are all out of stock not all of them but most of them and i need them to restock like the things i sell in my etsy shop because i’m really low or i am completely out of them and i can’t get them so if a lot of my lip scrubs and body scrubs are just gone for a while that’s why it’s because i can’t find the scents i’m gonna have to find them somewhere else then we have some lotion crafter lc995 which is actually a silicone sorry for you silicone haters out there um but this is like cyclo penta siloxane and cyclomethicone and i gotcha i got this specifically to try making it some deodorants um i’ve been doing some deodorant recipes over on my patreon and none of the recipes have really turned out to be something that i really want to like show the world they’re decent and that’s why i share them on patreon but they’re not anything that i would use personally but i am very picky when it comes to deodorants um so i got this to try in a deodorant here’s another silicone i got for deodorants this is just simply a dimethicone it goes by lotion crafter dm6 on lotion crafter but it’s literally just dimethicone again i got that for deodorant i’m hoping this will just give it a more of a dry feeling the deodorant recipes i’ve tried have been too wet or the other deodorant recipe i tried wasn’t ph balanced because you can’t ph balance it depending because of the way it’s made long explanation but basically yeah that’s why i got this then we have some lactic acid 90 typically i purchased my lactic acid on makingcosmetics.
com but they are out of stock of lactic acid so i have to try theirs hopefully it’s not too much different it is a different concentration the one i’m making cosmetics i believe is 88 so i’m going to have to change my formulation up a little bit but that’s just what you have to do i guess then we have some useful pe 9010 this is a preservative i use mostly and everything basically that’s why it’s in such a big container i really like this preservative i don’t use it on my channel the reason i use liquid drama plus on my channel all the time is because it’s inexpensive it’s easy to use and it works in almost every single formulation and i know most of you guys can get your hands on it because it’s sold basically everywhere that’s just why i use it on my channel it’s i make so many different formulations here on my channel that the last thing i really want to worry about is trying to find just a preservative for for the formulation because a lot of different uh preservatives can’t be used with specific ingredients and they can be used in specific phs it’s just easier to use liquid normal plus because it’s just compatible with everything and i know a lot of you guys are beginners as well and that’s just the preservative i recommend for beginners who are just starting out because the preservative the preservation process of a product can honestly be the hardest part of a formulation so i’d rather use a easy preservative for all you guys to see then use a complicating one and lastly i have some propane dial propane dial is basically very very similar to glycerin except it doesn’t have any sticky it won’t cause your skin to feel sticky like glycerin sometimes tends to do and that’s why i really like purple dial i personally really like using it in serums because serums can sometimes feel sticky especially if it’s used with glycerin so i like cropping dial and serums and also toners it’s a good good humectant for toner and that’s everything from lotion crafters actually i forgot one more thing i did get this 100 gram bag of hyaluronic acid that is 1-1.
5 million dollars this is the biggest thing of hyaluronic acid i have ever purchased this was over a hundred dollars i seriously can’t believe i actually splurged and did that but i go through those small bags of hyaluronic acid so freaking fast so i just needed to invest in this big giant bag especially during the pandemic you don’t know how long things are going to take to get in the mail i splurged got a big bag i love this stuff and that’s everything i have for today’s haul let me know if you guys enjoy these hauls give this video a thumbs up subscribe if you do like these hauls make sure you go follow me on instagram because even though i haven’t posted a haul video in probably like three months i have been doing hauls over on instagram on my story i do post a lot of content over on instagram sometimes i’ll like disappear for like a week or two because i’m just overwhelmed in work and i kind of just need like a slight social media break but not fully because my job kind of is social media i just need to step away for a second and that’s kind of why i go m.
