#AHA and matcha goodness! This Olive Leaf and Matcha Cream Gel uses glycolic acid at 10%. If that’s too much for you, please reformulate the recipe.
#Glycolic acid should be handled with extreme care.
#Make sure to have a way to test the pH. For glycolic acid to work effectively, it must have a pH somewhere in the range of 3 to 3.5. Do not neutralize this mix!
#Natrasil is a natural alternative to the petroleum based ‘-cones’ and ‘-xanes’
#If you don’t have matcha powder, you can turn your water portion into green tea. From there, you can continue with the rest of the recipe to form the gel.
#The Olive Leaf and Matcha Cream Gel is being stored in an airtight Infinity Jar for extra protection. You don’t have to do this though.
