Buffering Aha+ With Another Moisturizer

Recommended Posts

Hey guys so for the past few months I've been mixing AHA+ with dans moisturizer but unfortunately I've run out of the moisturizer. I was wondering if i could mix it with a cream based moisturizer (cerave in the tub) and would it have a similar effect to when i mixed it with the dans lotion?

Thanks!

I think buffering means reducing the strength of an acid by making a solution w/ its conjugate salt (in this case sodium glycolate).

However, you can still do that. If it's possible, please let me know what the consistency is like after mixing them.

It is totally possible. I use Cerave(AM) and Cetaphil(PM) and both work great mixed with the AHA. I just do a 1/2 moisturizer and 1/2 AHA mix and it works for me every night. If you don't mind looking like a greasy mess, add in a few drops of jojoba oil. You wake up with your face feeling very moisturized and soft.
