The amount of menthol crystals used in the lotion can be determined based on individual needs and product formulation. The usual recommended dosage range is between 0.1% and 2%. The exact dosage depends on the following factors:
Product Type: Different types of lotions may require different amounts of menthol crystals. For example, a facial lotion may require a lower concentration to avoid being too harsh, while a body lotion may be able to use a slightly higher concentration to provide a longer-lasting cooling sensation.
Personal preference: The user's sensitivity to cooling sensation and preference will also affect the amount of menthol crystals used. Some may prefer a milder cooling sensation, while others may desire a more intense effect.
Formula compatibility: When determining the usage amount, the compatibility and stability of other formula ingredients also need to be considered. Certain ingredients may react with or reduce the effectiveness of Menthol Crystals, so proper proportioning and testing is required.
To ensure safety and meet individual needs, formula development and adjustments are best done in a laboratory or by a professional cosmetic technician to ensure that the correct amount of menthol crystals is used in the lotion. In addition, if the lotion you purchased has indicated the recommended dosage of menthol crystals, please use it according to the product instructions.
Here are some things to keep in mind when adding menthol crystals to your lotion:
Concentration control: The concentration of menthol crystals should be determined according to the product type and individual needs. Using too high a concentration may cause excessive skin irritation or discomfort, while using too low a concentration may not achieve the desired effect. Step-by-step testing and adjustments are recommended during formulation development to find the optimum concentration for your product.
Personal Sensitivity: Certain individuals may be allergic or sensitive to menthol crystals. Before using a new product, it is best to test it on a small area of skin to make sure there is no allergic or irritating reaction. If any discomfort or abnormal reaction occurs, stop using it immediately and consult a doctor for advice.
Avoid eye use: Menthol crystals may be too irritating on the skin near the eyes, so use in the eye area should be avoided. In case of accidental contact with eyes, rinse immediately with water and seek medical help if necessary.
Pregnant and lactating women with caution: Due to limited knowledge about the safety of menthol crystals in pregnant and lactating women, caution is advised or avoided during this period.
