GEL network for a "bodylotion" for my horse?

For my hair conditioner, I use GEL network (Stearyl alc, Cetyl alc and SLS) and the gel is wonderful - no "whitening" effekt. Is it possible to create a similar kind of gel with something else than SLS, since I do not want to use SLS for skin care. I do not want any oil in the gel, and I do not want Zepimax (crosspolymer) since it is syntetic.

  • And what’s wrong with synthetic?

    How did you manage to make anionic SLS compatible with cationic conditioners?

    You can make gel networks with SLES instead of SLS.
  • Oh, looks like I want to create a hair conditioner - but I like to formulate a skin care "gel" without any SLS or SLES, but the same kind of "feeling" like the conditioner I made. Is that possible? I have tried natural polymers like xanthan, guar, agar and cellulose.
