essential oils emulsifier

What emulsifier can I use to emulsify essential oils? I have tried with a glucoside, which works, but it makes the product too sticky. Any advise would be really appreciated. Thanks

    E oils are not an cosmetics ingridients it has not inci name
    used only as parfum
    use solibiliser like peg 40
  • Polysorbate 80, twice as much as the amount of fragrance you're trying to solubilize. It's viscous but to me not as sticky as a glucoside. If that doesn't work, then combine the Polysorbate with another nonionic surfactant. 
  • My preference is Polysorbate 20, as a liquid it's a lot easier to work with than some of the other polysorbates or PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil. 

    From a natural perspective, Natragem S140 NP (Polyglyceryl-4 Laurate/Sebacate (and) Polyglyceryl-6 Caprylate/Caprate (and) Aqua) is pretty effective
