Serums are Where it's At! Soaper's Supplies has perfected an easy and noticeably effective Face Serum. I am very happy to announce that I am collaborating with my dear friend and mentor, Debbie Poore on this blog installment. We are very excited to and proud to give you a formula for a face/eye serum that is sure to spice-up your line!
This little bit of Luxury in a bottle is Scientifically formulated with some of the finest, choice ingredients for the age-conscious customer who is looking for a spa-like experience. By combining botanical derivatives with modern discoveries, you will receive the upscale experience and visible results you want! Now you can get the high-end ingredients needed to make this upscale serum for yourself, and also for your customers!
Esthetician Veronica Barton-Schwartz, owner of Veronica Skin and Body Care Center in Malibu, Calif., who counts celebrities Olivia
Newton-John, Suzanne Somers, and Cher among her clients, is also a fan. "I think everyone is doing their skin a disservice if they don't have a great serum."
Soaper's Supplies has put together some simple ingredients that are renowned for their anti-aging benefits in water-based facial and eye serums.
Right now I would like to talk about these key ingredients, what they do, and why they are popular in anti-aging facial serums. The most effective serums are usually water-based as this helps the "active ingredients" absorb easily, and therefore, gives quicker, more noticeable results. You can make your own serum that does not contain these ingredients, but we have put together a version that is a great starter formula, especially if you have not included an anti-aging serum in your beauty line yet.
We will have the entire formula with ingredients and instructions listed below, but first we wanted to give you some background on the ingredients chosen for this serum and how they work.
The first ingredient I would like to discuss is Soaper's Supplies CoQ-10 (Coenzyme q-10), also known as Ubiquinone. This is a fabulous ingredient found on many commercial labels and is sure to give your label more than a second look. It is renowned for its skin-rejuvenating properties.
LiveStrong.com states that, according to the Mayo Clinic, "Coenzyme Q10 helps manage energy production in
cells and may have anti-aging effects on skin... It also may help diminish fine wrinkles around the eyes". This informative article also states that according to the
Mayo Clinic, "An animal study published in 2005 in the journal Biofactors found Q10 intake improves the epidermal (inner) layer of the skin, which may be a precursor to its anti-aging effects
on in skin. The study, involving hairless mice, was led by Yutaka Ashida of Pharmaceutical Research Laboratories, Shiseido Research Center, Yokohama, Japan".
Another fabulous ingredient in this serum is Soaper's Supplies Hyaluronic Acid! If you want to sell a water-based serum that will actually keep its promise, then you need to include HA in your formula. Hyaluronic Acid is an amazing humectant. According to LiveStrong.com, "hyaluronic acid holds moisture well--holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water--it is a commonly used component in moisturizers. In these moisturizers, it functions not only to deliver water to the skin, but also to hold it there".
The inclusion of Hyaluronic Acid to your serum may help it reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping the users skin with water. It pulls water from the air and into the skin where the collagen has broken down beneath.
A more in depth article well worth checking out is.... https://www.alwayshealthyliving.com/benefits-of-hyaluronic-acid-for-skin Thanks to owner of Always Healthy Living Sandra Dean for sharing her knowledge
In addition to these great actives, this serum contains the luxurious oil of the Rose Hip Seed. Soaper's Supplies Rose Hip Seed oil will help boost the emollient
quality of this face/eye serum. LiveStrong.com states that "for facial skin care, rose hip oil offers
several benefits when applied externally due to its primary constituents: essential fatty acids, vitamin E, vitamin C and B-carotene, a form of vitamin
Rose Hip Seed Oil is found in the most upscale face and eye products due to its nourishing qualities and extensive vitamin and fatty acid content. This was an ingredient we knew would boost the serum's efficiency and also its label-appeal.
When you read the entire ingredient list you will see some other delightful goodies, like Allantoin, which is renowned for its skin-softening effects as well as cyclomethicone and silk amino acids, which will give your serum "slip" and glide in its application. These are all key factors that the high-end companies consider when designing their anti-aging products. Now you can offer the same quality product as the department stores while increasing your profits and market share because your product will keep its promise!
All these great ingredients will be combined with Soaper's Supplies Aloe Gel. This gel offers the soothing, herbal goodness of the aloe plant with a gelling ingredient that actually helps bind all these other anti-aging ingredients together! We have an easy-to-follow formula here on the Soaper's Supplies website. All necessary serum ingredients have been linked directly to the website for your convenience, so, just click and create and sell!
Don't forget the containers! Do you think we would give you the formula for this delightful serum without the proper
Soaper's Supplies containers? We recommend filling -or even injecting, this pro-style serum into our squeezable tubes
which will help reduce customer contamination and also give a fun, stylish appearance to your packaging. If you have any problem finding the proper container, please contact Rae Jean or
myself, Angela D'Amico, and we will be glad to lead you in the right direction.
The full formula including preservative is listed in the following recipe. Each ingredient listed above is linked directly to the store for easy access.

Recipe For Serum
Percentages Grams Ounces
46% Aloe Vera Gel 52.5 1.86
2% Rosehip Seed Oil 2.26 .08
1% CoQ-10 1.13 .04
1% Cyclomethicone 1.13 .04
46.5% Distilled Water 52.5 1.86
0.5% Allantoin 0.57 0.02
0.5% Hyaluronic Acid 0.57 0.02
1% Silk Amino Acid 1.13 0.04
1% Germaben II 1.13 0.04
This recipe will yield, 4 ounces or 113 grams of serum
Sanitize all utensils and equipment. You can do this by spraying all clean utensils and equipment with isopropyl alcohol. It is impossible to sterilize in a home or lab setting, but sanitizing is necessary.
Weigh all ingredients in Phase B. Heat the water to 158 Fahrenheit and add the allantoin. Stir until the allantoin is completely dissolved.
Once the water is cool enough to touch, sprinkle the Hyaluronic Acid into the water while stirring. It will start to congeal. Continue stirring until it is dissolved. I use a milk frother to do this. The Hyaluronic Acid will thicken the water. After it is dissolved, add the silk amino acids and stir well.
Add the Germaben II (Phase C) to your water mixture and blend well. Set aside.
Weigh the ingredients in Phase A.
Add the rosehip seed oil to the aloe vera gel. Mix thoroughly. To this add the CoQ-10, mix well. Add the Cyclomethicone to the gel mixture mixing well. It will appear that the cyclomethicone doesn't want to incorporate, keep mixing, it will come together.
Blend both mixtures together VERY well.
Package and label according to the laws in your area.

I love, love this blog and am already looking forward to some more. These folks are the nicest, kindest people to order from. They make you feel like they know you and you are their friend. I try to do the same thing with my soap page. Everybody who orders from me is considered a friend....

This blog is so informative. Once I can afford the supplies I will be trying this. I have learned that rose hip seed oil is in a lot of products and very beneficial for your face. Love this blog
Heather Syring (Friday, 25 November 2016 16:57)
Loved reading through this. I have been formulating my own anti aging serums for awhile but had no idea that hyaluronic acid holds up to 1000 times its weight in water! This will be an ingredient i must use next time.
Terri Maley (Friday, 25 November 2016 16:59)
Was quite excited when heard developing the face serum. As soon as the recipe was listed, I jumped on the order page!
Thank so so much for all the blogs and supplies!
Beth Sannes (Friday, 25 November 2016 17:00)
After reading this blog, I truly would like to make this! Now it's possible to do so! Thank you for sharing!!
Penny Jones (Friday, 25 November 2016 17:03)
Very interesting blog. I have been spending some time researching different ingredients and I probably could have saved some time by just reading the blog. I knew bout co-q10 but not the hyaluronic acid. I look forward to the opportunity to include some of these ingredients in my next order.
Shelley (Friday, 25 November 2016 17:08)
I've always wondered how to fill those tiny bottles! Thanks for this blog!
Zeruiah Shirah Looper-Borre (Friday, 25 November 2016 17:17)
What a WONDERFUL article on the blog! I had NO IDEA that Hyaluronic Acid is such an amazing humectant! And water based too!! I will definitely have to incorporate some of this in my skin-care line! WOW!!!
Bernice Ortiz (Friday, 25 November 2016 17:23)
I didn't know you had a blog where the heck have I been
Ciara Coldiron (Friday, 25 November 2016 17:26)
This is perfect timing for me as a have been researching CoQ10 and this have been the best informative info on this
Tammy Whitfield (Friday, 25 November 2016 17:28)
Learn something new everyday! I didn't know you had blog....
Omneya Andrea Acosta Dhmaid (Friday, 25 November 2016 17:45)
What I have learned form the tutorial is that you carry amazing ingredients, BUT I am amazed that Angela and Debbie are such master's at putting these things together. I have never thought of putting Hyaluronic acid on my face! I hear Hyaluronic and I am thinking about cars.
What the heck is CO-q10? Never heard of it till I came here. You have master formulators that can take your amazing products and put together high scale and quality products to be sold. And the main thing is a jumble butt like me can do it. So thank you xox Omneya
Cathy Mudrick (Friday, 25 November 2016 18:08)
I make a serum that I thought was a good one until I read this. Argon Oil, Frankencense, Mryth and Rosehip Seed Oil. Now I know I'm going to need better ingredience for better results on my old skin. lol
Very interesting read...
Michele Johnson Miranda (Friday, 25 November 2016 18:09)
I knew co-q10 was great for joints but had no idea it was so beneficial for skin too!
Staci Gurr (Friday, 25 November 2016 18:11)
, I wondered why I bought the silk amino acid. ;0) When I click on the pdf it tells me the url is expired. I also did not know that was how you filled those tubes. Thanks for the info!
Vinessa Zorn (Friday, 25 November 2016 18:23)
I can't wait to make this product! It will fit into my facial/skincare line beautifully.
Leisa Carle (Friday, 25 November 2016 18:35)
I want this and I'm glad to know all about the serum and how good it is for our mature skin!
Laura (Friday, 25 November 2016 19:32)
This is so informative.
Rose Brown (Friday, 25 November 2016 20:14)
I've been wanting to create an eye serum for quite some time. I kept pushing it further down my to-do list. To the top it comes! Thanks from me and my mature customers who will have to wait no more ☺
Miriam (Friday, 25 November 2016 20:16)
I enjoyed this article I like all you ladies you are very knowledgeable I know that serums penetrate better than most creams the eye are is very delicate and has no oil glands which is why it is so important to hydrate rose hip oil is very good as an anti aging ingredient along with all the other ingredients I cannot wait to get these ingredients and put them together and use them and teach my clients about them Thank you
Ugie Moore (Friday, 25 November 2016 20:27)
I am ordering all these items to make this serum and tweaking the one I have into it
Heather McClain (Friday, 25 November 2016 20:30)

I may try this, I have been looking for something like this. I love this Rae's products, they are reasonably priced and she is so quick on shipping. Love the blog, will continue to follow it.
Stephanie Eaton (Friday, 25 November 2016 22:09)
Before I read this, I hadn't considered making an anti-aging serum. Now it is a must-try! I have only used CoQ-10 in pill form internally! I didn't know about its external benefits!
Denise Rowe (Friday, 25 November 2016 22:17)
Where do I start, Debbie is an amazing formulator, have read this several times and as soon as I am able will order the supplies to make this. Every time I read this I learn things I didn't catch before, RaeJean has taught me alot over the years, Thank you.
Cyndie Moore (Saturday, 26 November 2016 07:42)
I love this I have been looking for a Natural based serum. I would love to make for my family and I. I love this site these ladies are the best and answer any question I have.
Liz B (Saturday, 26 November 2016 07:48)
Hyaluronic Acid has always interested me and to also learn about all the other ingredients RaeJean
carries is such a god sent. One stop shopping. Love the fast shipping. When I need something fast, she always gets it to me asap!
Phyllis Awkard (Saturday, 26 November 2016 10:01)
I had no idea hylauronic acid could hold 1000 times it's weight in water! I can only imagine the benefits it brings to a face/eye serum, especially when combined with other skin loving ingredients like CoQ10!
Miriam (Saturday, 26 November 2016 11:13)
Link does not work
Debi Olsen (Saturday, 26 November 2016 13:57)
I have heard of hyaluronic acid but never knew of the benefits it could provide! Thank you for sharing this but unfortunately, the link to the PDF isn't working. I'll keep checking back to see if it's fixed.
Vicki (Saturday, 26 November 2016 15:36)

Jennifer Potter (Sunday, 27 November 2016 08:38)
since my browser went nuts, lets try this again.
Sounds interesting! I thought the only way to administer was thru pill form. Thanks for formulating! may have to give it a go during my "downtime" in January!!!
Jennifer Macha (Sunday, 27 November 2016 15:47)
This is a great article from a great company. I had no idea that CoQ-10 could be used externally. Thanks for the info!

First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!
