Cold Process Emulsion - Simple and Easy (looking for formula)
I am looking for the most bare bones, inexpensive, cold process emulsion out there. I would like to use it for testing new thickeners, actives, ect. I just want an extremely easy, fast, and cheap formulation base to work with. Emphasis on the speed of formulation.
I’m not 100% certain where to start as all of my experience has been with hot process emulsions. I was thinking Ultrez 10 as a thickener (trying to stay away from the more expensive latex based thickeners), Some form of PEG or Polysorbate-20 as an emulsifier, and Sunflower Oil as, well, the oil phase.
Ingredients would look something like this:
Sunflower Oil (5%)
C) NaOH (Neutralize)
Is that too simplified? Should I use alternative ingredients? Am I missing something?
Thank you for your input and I look forward to your comments!
