I want to make a nice, light moisturizer cream for normal skin that spreads nicely during rub in.

I am using 2% Squalene, 5%  HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE, 
2% Olivem 1000, 0.7% stearic acid, 0.7 cetearyl alcohol, 1% dimethicone, 0.33% mango butter, 0.33% kokum butter, 0.33% shea butter, also Hydravance moisture ingredient and Pentavitin and Hysilk.

I'm obtaining a rich cream, I am using to built viscosity Viscolam EMT10, what resulted in caking, tried Sepigel 305 but any clear improvement noticed. 

Would like to make it lighter and improve hydration effect. 
Does anyone have advice how to improve it?

Thanks

    I'd suggest using Carbopol 940 or Synthalen K as a stabiliser rather than EMT10 or Sepigel; they both lose viscosity on skin contact, which makes them good for light creams

  • Add 2-3% glycerine and 2-3% Glucam E-20 for lots of hydration.

  • Thank you Bill and Belassi  :), I will let you know how it goes.

    For this cream for normal skin, what light emollients could you suggest me?
  • Use a better combination instead of the 5% hydrogenated polyisobutene. I'd include 1% Sensoft, increase the squalane by 2% to 4%, make the butters 0.66% each.

  • Grateful ;) for your advice's Belassi.
  • MKnight - I think you've misunderstood the aim and function of this forum.

    I'd have to agree - advertising for retail finished products should not have a place here.

    @Perry your take on such ads here which is basically a non commercial forum?

    Personally, I don't have an issue with ads/links for products, services, raw materials or companies that apply to what we do here - even selling wholesale cosmetics could be ok - but I'd hate for this forum to turn into a place to get bombarded with retail ads/advice/spam.

    <ad was removed> @MKnight ;

    Yeah, this is pretty much a non-commercial forum. We have a thread for people to list their services. And if someone (in answering a question) wants to offer to have someone contact them for a paid job, that's fine too.  

    But I remove ads when they don't seem appropriate or are adding to the conversation.  I also rely on the people in this forum to let me know if they see something like this.  I try to keep up with every discussion but sometimes I miss some comments.

    Thanks!
