cucumber extract. You can use powdered cucumber extract at 0.5% in this product, but you will end up with a darker coloured gel. No big deal, just thought you might want to know.
I made a gel using this recipe, then I removed 20 grams and made myself a lovely eye gel with cucumber.
CREATING A GEL WITH CARBOPOL ULTREZ 20 (THICK GEL)
96.8% distilled water
1.2% Carbopol Ultrez 20
1.6% 18% lye solution or triethanolamine
0.4% liquid Germall Plus (or preservative of choice)
To make it easier...
242 grams of distilled water
3 grams Carbopol Ultrez 20
4 grams 18% lye solution or triethanolamine
1 gram liquid Germall Plus
Please check out the post I wrote last year on making gels to see the recipe and process.
