    Hi Freelance, How are you? Could you help me with this problem?

    I am trying to create a water-based hair ointment, but not like the classic, if not an emulsion type like this:

     https://www.pomades.com/media/catalog/product/cache/5/thumbnail/e2f8e5b1fddd917d63c2d528f85a1bc4/h/r/hr_465-272-01_shear-revival-crystal-lake-water-based-pomade-2.jpg

    In this forum I found that someone else was trying to do and wrote this formulation:

     Water          43,86%       

    Emulsyfing wax nf         20,18%        
    Beeswax      11,04%         
    Shea butter            2,00%          
    PEG40 HCO    13,6%         
    Jojoba oil     6,14%                        
    Essential oil  0,88%
    Preservative    0,4%         
    pvp k30        1,0%  

    I try to replicate, but replace the emulsifying wax because it is very difficult to get where I live I have replaced it with polysorbate 80 (Hlb value is similar).The emulsion takes a cream coloration and a consistency to butter but it happens that the emulsion undergoes a cremation and I do not know how to solve it very well

    i think about maintaining the mechanical agitation by adding the aqueous and oily phase for a longer time but I do not see the result. Is it possible to solve it by increasing the percentage of surfactant? Or maybe, if I add other emulsifier could work?

    Thanks so much!
