I'm a novice formulator who really wants to formulate my own products for personal use and as a hobby. I know I can just find products I like, but I would like to learn.
I'm trying to find the best moisturizer for a rinse-off product. A moisturizer that can be deposited via surfactant foam onto skin. Currently, I'm looking at Amodimethicone, Dimethicone
OR Petrolatum via a polymer. I can't find much information on how to make petrolatum more effectively stick in a surfactant system. I know their is a patent for it, but I'm not sure where to obtain this product. Perhaps with a polymer such as cationic guar or HydroxyEthylCellulose? I also don't want to break a patent if I ever decide to sell the product on a small-scale basis.
I know your busy, so any information or redirects to information would be much appreciated. Thanks so much for ANY advice.
