Tea Tree Toner 6


I love using toners. They feel so refreshing and can make your skin feel really great. Sometimes I forget my bottle is getting low and I run out! Ack! I wanted a toner that would be a quick and easy project and have a great feel. Well, I think I have it. Come join me in the kitchen for a quick, easy project and great skin.

I really like to use this toner in the evenings. I feel like I am cleaning off the dirt and makeup of the day and my skin feels fresh, dewy and rejuvenated. Now if only I could formulate a product that made me feel great, look sexy, and did the dishes. Sigh. Oh well, I’ll still take my skin feeling great.

Now wasn’t that simple? If you want a foaming toner, I would recommend you use one of our foamer bottles and use Polysorbate 80 instead of Polysorbate 20. This will help the foaming toner retain body.

    Madea,

    Good catch. Yes. This should have a preservative. Without a preservative, it will probably last for 3 weeks or so.

    I hope this helps.

    Maybe Optiphen at 1%? I was thinking this would make a nice gift with a facial cleanser, light facial lotion and lipbalms.

    I like the idea of a foaming toner. Taylor, do you need to add anything extra to make it foam or just replace polysorbate 20 for 80? Also, is it a kind of toner that you leave on the skin or do you wash it off?

    Thanks,

    Julie ^_^

    Julie,

    You could just use Polysorbate 80. The Polysorbate 80 will allow some foaming to occur all on it own but if you wanted more foam then what you are getting, you can add some Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate.

    This style of toner I just leave on my skin. I am more of a wash and go type of girl so it will be pretty rare for me to formulate something that is labor intensive for the user. Lol. That is just me and my preferences shinning through!

    I hope this helps!
