I have to make a crystal clear water soluble pomade. I have difficulties to get a strong hold and a crystal clear formula !
I understand that I just have to add water with C-25 but it is not enough hold. I would like to improve that, so I want to add PVP but my formula became opaque and I have the impression that when I work it in my fingers it emulsifies (become white) ...
I don't have refractometer to get transparancy with plasticizers...
Have you got some ideas ??
My simple formula is :
Phase A (85°C)
PVP K 30 powder
Phase B (85°C)
Ceteareth 25 (solids)
Phase A into phase B
If I want to package my formula, I can add maximum 23% of C-25.
I am waiting for your answer. Thank you !!
