I have a water-based formulation that is a bit sticky and I'm trying to improve the sensorial. The formulation is an aqueous serum thickened with HEC/Xanthan Gum and the only oil included is a touch of Vitamin E Tocotrienols.  I prefer to not use Silicones as slip agents.  Does anyone have any ideas?
