Procedure
Dissolve disodium EDTA in deionized water. Disperse Carbopol Ultrez 21 Polymer on the surface of deionized water. When the polymer is fully wetted, mix batch (200-300 rpm) and slowly add Glucam E-20 humectant and butylene glycol. Mix until uniform.  Neutralize the batch with phase B. Mix until uniform.  Decrease the mixing speed to 100-200 rpm. Make a 1% TS solution of sodium hyaluronate. Sequentially add the components of phase C to batch. Mix until uniform.  Continue mixing and add phase D ingredients.  Mix until uniform. Slowly add the beads into the gel (0.30g : 100g gel) through slow agitation (50 rpm).
