BUILD VISCOSITY TO A VERY FLUID W/SILICONE SUNCREAM SPF50

Hello,

I am working on increasing the viscosity to a w/silicone fluid emulsion.

It has 18% of silicones and the emulsifiers I use are:
  • 3% PEG-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate (Cithrol DPHS ) (emulsifier)
  • 1,5% Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone (co-emulsifier)
I tried increasing the viscosity of the water phase but it fails. I suppose I have to increase the silicone phase with a wax or something but I am not sure how.

I hope someone can help me.

Thank you very much
