Aussie Soap Supplies Airless Treatment Pump!

Serums are used very sparingly, around the eyes and on the face, and deliver concentrated nutrients which are most easily dispensed using an Airless Treatment Pump as they dispense measured, small quantities of product without mess and waste. For travel or smaller quantities, our Mini Spray Atomizer Bottle or a glass Amber Bottle with an Eye Dropper is useful.

These basic starter formulas, using rich oils can used as below, or you can include other nutrients and vitamins as long as they are oil based. These can also be adapted to be Body Oils, simply increase the fixed oils (the more economical ones that aren't so rich) such as the Fractionated Coconut Oil, Avocado, Apricot Kernel, Camellia Oil, or include some Macadamia or Sweet Almond Oil.

I tend to avoid Fragrance and Essential Oils in my formulas for use around the eye area, but this is personal choice. However, if my skin is feeling a bit tired and dry and I want to use all over my face, I include Rose Absolute 3% with a touch of Frangipani and a drop of Sandalwood Essential Oil too.

These formulas make 100g, but if you only want to make enough just for yourself, measure accurately and halve or quarter the amounts.

Jojoba Based Serum

Ingredients

For Packaging: Airless Treatment Pump or Mini Atomizer Bottles.

Method:

Either:

Combine all ingredients in a jug, mix thoroughly and pour into bottle or pumps.

Or alternatively, place ingredients into an amber glass bottle, screw on the lid and shake to mix. I prefer this method and then pour directly from the amber bottle to fill my pump as required.

Extra Light Facial Serum

Pure Olive Squalane is in my top 5 "absolute must" use skincare ingredients, and this serum has a high percentage. This high percentage of pure Olive Squalane makes the formula very light, and is still quite affordable as you only need to make a tinsy amount per application. This formula is also suitable for our 4.5ml Mini Spritz Bottle, just perfect.
