Hydrolyzed Rice in Psoriasis Lotion
Made a nice textured lotion by spur of the moment/accident
80% water - this was excess water from a pot of cooking rice, after simmering for at least 15 mins, quite Thick stuff.
6% wax 165
2% cetyl alcohol (i think. it was accident so could have been ewax nf, or cetostearyl alcohol)
The texture was so nice and it was soothing on swims chronic dry skin and psoriasis, which I made it for, reading about rice starch as a soother for this skin condition. Used the best oils I had, usually anything stings upon application but there were no complaints and swims skin was nice up to the next day.
The texture of the lotion was super thick but I didn't like how it was a bit tacky as it fully dried. Was this because there was too much rice starch?
How can I prepare this rice gruel to make this lotion again? How to measure the concentration of starch in the water, does the gruel need to be neutralized with lye somehow? as per this thread http://chemistscorner.com/cosmeticsciencetalk/discussion/3702/hydrolysed-proteins/p1
The rice is very high in minerals and protein, highest I have ever seen.
Is this gruel or rice water called hydrolyzed rice?
Thanks for reading, any ideas would be great!
