Please I want to make a face cream that will leave a silky white cast and can’t clean easily from sweating. I tried zinc at 1% in my emulsion but it didn’t work. The face cream will be used at night.my Active ingredients are retinol palmitate  2% and papain 0.5%only.I will be using Olivem 1000 3% squalane 10% cetyl alcohol 1 and lotionpro 2%. Please  I need some help. Thank you

    Welcome to the forum.

    To get more answers accurately, you may have to provide more information.

    Such as your formula, what is the problem you have, ... etc.

    What kind of zinc- particle size, coated vs uncoated? 
    When you say it didn't work, in what way- emulsion failed, desired effect not present at all or not present enough?

    @Chinny Hello. 
    To make a water-resistant cream you may want to change the type of emulsion as a cream base. It should be w/o emulsion. Silicone emulsifiers are the best to create the product you want to formulate.
