It's a constant dilemma. Which road to take? From a cosmetics ingredients perspective, there are oftentimes 2 choices.
Take Hyaluronic Acid...Last year, I started working with hyaluronic acid from a different supplier. Instead of the easy-peasy no-worries pre-mixed gel I had been using for (several) years, it was time to get acquainted with this ingredient as it is most commonly available – in powdered form.
Because 'hy-acid' is an integral part of several of my products, this caused quite a bit of unavoidable reformulation – and a trip down a slightly rocky road.
I know what you're thinking.
