  • Binding Agent For Powder To Cream Formula

    Posted by formulatordave on April 29, 2024 at 2:01 pm

    Good afternoon, I am formulating a powder facial cleanser and am seeking advice on binding agents. Currently, I am using sodium cocoyl isethionate to bind the ingredients together and to produce a lather when water is applied to the hands and they are rubbed together. However, I am not a huge fan of how surfactants like SCI make my skin feel afterward, even in low percentages, and I am looking for alternatives.

    Are there any plant-derived substitutes or mostly natural substitutes like SCI that I can use as a binding and lathering agent? I am looking for something that 1) will bind the powders together so that when water is applied to the hands and they are rubbed together to produce a lather, the powder doesn’t just spill right off the hands, and 2) will create a smooth lather, almost like a cream?

    Ideally, I am also looking for something that can be used in a facial moisturizer.

    Thank you in advance for your help.
