Help with my formulation (problems increasing the viscosity)

Hi everybody,

I am trying to formulate a pvp hand wash with
Povidone iodine 
decyl glucoside

My problem is that I am not finding the right viscosity enhancer for this for this formulation. So far I have tried NaCl at different concentration up to 2% and nothing and Carbomer + TEA (but in this case the structure of the gel was totally ruined).
Can anybody help me?
Thank you in advance

    HEC, high viscosity HPMC?? Salt will do nothing in this formula anyway.
