I am trying to formulate a gel mask using natural thickeners like Sclerotium gum, Solagum AX, Siligel (Xanthan Gum, Lecithin, Sclerotium Gum, Pullulan).
I also have Amaze XT (Dehydroxanthan Gum), though it's more for haircare.
I would LOVE to use a synthetic polymeric thickener because the skin-feel is soo much nicer...but they are not natural..
Using Sapogel (INCI: Glycerin, Aqua, Quillaja Saponaria Wood Extract, Saponaria Officinalis (Soapwort) Leaf/Root Extract) and the like is out of the question also because of the insanity of sitting there pipetting away for hours...
My question is: What natural ingredients might help take a natural gel from ugly Betty to more glamourous?
