This is what happens when you mix clay or mica into lip balm to make lipstick. Preservatives, thickeners, fragrances, artificial colours and dyes, and pH adjusters. Chemical services performed on overly porous hair require less alkaline solutions with a lower pH, which will help to prevent further overprocessing. Sorry! If I were to buy a water soluble powder and mixed it with vegetable glycerin, would it then be miscible with carrier oils like grapeseed oil? That’s that for my quick guide—what solubility tips do you have? -Staci, Hi Staci! Thanks for you I need to mix aloevera juice with olive oil, citrus oil, jojoba oil, white germ oil and castor oil but the mixture separate aloevera at the button below.
