  • Hello friends! I am currently working on a briolin formula, but I have a very solid product. It does not rub hands, it is impossible to put on the hair, what am I doing wrong? Below is the formula I tried, I will be glad to any help and hint, thanks in advance to everyone for their help. 
    Ceresin - 25%, 
    beeswax - 20%, 
    carnauba wax - 5%, 
    emulsion wax - 5%, 
    PEG 40 - 8%, 
    petrolatum - 25%, 
    glycerin cocoat - 5%, 
    propylene glycol - 3%, 
    vegetable glycerin - 3%

  • Is it bad I don't know what briolin is?.. The wax percents seem really high for ceresin, beeswax, and even carnauba. Honestly try cutting them each down by almost half and see what consistency you get then

    @EVchem, Thanks for the answer, I'll try and tell you what I get. And on what i must change bees wax, vaseline? Briolin, as I understand it, is an oily base, a lipstick for styling.

  • oh a pomade! 

    try carnauba closer to 3% first
    cut beeswax down to 10%, replace that with petrolatum
     I would say try those two things, or just one at a time, and compare to your previous attempts


  • @ EVchem Thank you, i'll try all what you say. 
  • @EVchem i'll i'l make like you tell, consistens is more better, but the level of fixation is minimal, how can I increase the fixation, thanks for any help.
