Emulsified Body Scrub with a Gummy Texture
I would like to copy a store-bought emulsified sugar scrub with the following ingredients:
Propylene Glycol-weak moisturiser
Polysorbate 20-emulsifier (technically a solubilizer). Used as a liquid emulsifier for perfumes and essential oils.
Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer- a gelling agent that thickens, emulsifies, and stabilizes products and solutions.
Aleurites Moluccana Seed Oil
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Sheel Powder
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut)
Gardenia Tahitensis Flower
Polysorbate 60-an oil-in water emulsifier/solubiliser
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Shell Powder
I have two questions about this body scrub:
- In particular I am interested in re-creating the almost gummy/gooey texture of this body scrub but first want to know which ingredient/s is this down to? I am guessing the copolymer gelling agent. Just a guess as it seems the only viable answer.
- Why are both polysorbate 60 and polysorbate 20 used?
