Borax alternatives for creaminess in Pomade
I have a hair Pomade formulation that includes about 1% borax (dissolved in the water phase), that I was looking to replace with a different preservative for EU compliance, so replaced the borax with Phenoxyethanol SA and I believe it’ll preserve it, but the issue is that the removal of borax dramatically changed the consistency of the product. With borax the product is very creamy (almost like a lotion consistency) despite having a lot of hold, but getting rid of it creates a very thick, pasty and dry product. Is there a product that can have this softening type affect that borax has?
