I have been making a basic water/propanediol/sodium stearate and Triethyl Citrate deodorant stick. It works OK but the protection lasts less than 24 hours.
I would like to try incorporating Zinc Ricinoleate but since there are no oils in my formula, I am wondering how to dissolve it.
I am obviously not a chemist so I humbly come to you hoping you might be able to provide some useful guidance.
For example, in the formula below from Jason, which ingredient/s are making the addition of zinc ricinoleate possible?
Ingredients: Propanediol, Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Sodium Stearate, Zinc Ricinoleate, Polyglyceryl-3 Caprate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Allantoin, Behenyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Silica, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sucrose Cocoate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Benzyl Benzoate , Hexyl Cinnamal, Fragrance (Parfum)
Many thanks in advance!
