  • BUILD VISCOSITY TO A VERY FLUID W/SILICONE SUNCREAM SPF50

    Posted by Maes on October 9, 2017 at 9:03 pm

    Hello,

    I am working on increasing the viscosity to a w/silicone fluid emulsion.

    It has 18% of silicones and the emulsifiers I use are:

    • 3% PEG-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate (Cithrol DPHS ) (emulsifier)
    • 1,5% Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone (co-emulsifier)

    I tried increasing the viscosity of the water phase but it fails. I suppose I have to increase the silicone phase with a wax or something but I am not sure how.

    I hope someone can help me.

    Thank you very much
