I’m making a natural liquid roll-on deodorant. Because the consistency of the solution is like water, it leaks from the roll-on bottle. What thickener can I add that is a natural ingredient, non-sticky, and doesn’t leave any residue?
I already tried glycerin. I added almost 20% and still the liquid isn't thick enough, yet the deodorant feels greasy.
I read in Crystal Rock Roll-on's ingredients that it contains cellulose. However, I can't find ingredients for sale that's just called "cellulose".
How about Hydroxyethylcellulose? Is this the same as cellulose? Can I still call it "all-natural" if I add this ingredient?
And what about Xanthan Gum? Can I still call it "all-natural" if I use this? Does it make the deodorant sticky or have white residue?
With your recommendation, please kindly also suggest quantity for 50ml solution.
