Thanks for the reply D
I want to use niacinamide and co enzyme q10. I was wodering if I could a mild AHA lotin as a base cream for thse actives. I havent figured out the recepie yet.
I have tried 4 % niacinamide in 2 oz cream. I managed to get pure form in capsules without any fillers. The strengthof the caps is 500 mg.
This is my recepie:
1 oz base cream
5 500 mg capsules
(I hope I did it right. )
Actually I ran out of my plain base cream so i thought If I could use a mild AHA lotion as my base cream this time. Then I want to add q10 (after dissolving on oil) to my NIACINAMIDE CREAM PREPARED IN AHA BASE CREAM. I havent figured out how much q 10 i should be using. i need help
I am reposting the link of AHA lotion.

I actually don't use coQ10. But I researched it and found that normal usage rate is 1-3%. Three percent is probably better, but it will make your base yellow/orange and some have problems with this as a day cream. Anything under 1%, while more aesthetically pleasing, probably won't give much effect either.
I found a few products that use both glycolic and coQ10 (including the glycolix elite line of products), however, I could not find any information specifically on whether acids will break down coQ10.
