Fruit Acid Complex
Fruit Acid Complex
PLEASE NOTE: Fruit Acid Complex is in tight supply and will be for some time to come. We are therefore limiting the amounts that any one person or company can purchase, in fairness to all of our customers who purchase this ingredient. If we note that you are wiping out our virtual inventory by purchasing multiples of every size, we WILL mark those orders as DECLINED in our system or reduce amounts allowed to be purchased. We appreciate your understanding of our desire to be fair to all.
On a positive note, this is being formulated for us by a new manufacturer, so we expect the shortage to be a limited one.
According to the manufacturer: At a 10% dilution, this product produced a 34% in cell renewal when compared to the untreated control side. Accordingly, there was a 143% percent increase in the number of squames generated. Evaluated at 4% in a commercial cream, this product increased cell turnover by 20% relative to the control formulation.
While the manufacturer recommends a use level between 5 - 15%, we advise less experienced formulators to use this product at the lower level. All products made with AHAs should be tested using a pH meter (not pH paper) to ensure products at final formulation have a pH of at least 4.0.
Because products formulated with AHAs can increase sun sensitivity, the FDA requires specific labeling of products which contain AHAs and do not include sunscreens. This information and much more is contained in the FDA document USFDA on Labeling for Topically Applied Cosmetics Containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids as Ingredients. The link to this FDA document is also readily accessible in our Reference Room above (please consider it required reading).
According to the manufacturer, the sugars in this product are produced without the use of bone char and it is therefore a VEGAN product.
- This product should be added to a formulation at the end of the procedure and at the recommended usage rate.
- Some formulations containing polymers such as Carbopol require that the Fruit Acid Complex be pre-diluted and/or neutralized.
- Always check compatibility with clays and other inorganic thickeners.
- The best formulations for Fruit Acid Complex are nonionic creams and lotions.
