Balancing ingredients in a moisturiser

Hi all, I'm experimenting with a moisturiser and I've got a product that makes liposomes through the addition of water. The resulting liposome solution is then added to the moisturiser during the cool down phase. If I want the end product to be the same viscosity as the product excluding the liposome solution should I just use less water when making the base emulsion as I know the water will be added back later on? My thinking is that using less water in the base will make it thicker but will then be thinned out once the liposome solution is added. Is this flawed? If so, any suggestions on how to maintain viscosity if you're adding a watery solution late in the process?

    That's basically what everybody else would try at first. There's never a guarantee that it works but a very high chance.

  • OK thanks. Glad I'm at least on the right track!
