My 20% aluminum chlorohydate AP cream is still gritty after I left out the allantoin. So it must be aluminum chlorohydrate precipitate. Can someone please help me with this problem?
I read on MakingCosmetics that it is soluble in cold
water, but the quantity (even half of it) is too large to put in the cool down phase. Supplier says it can be put in hot water phase.
Should I lower the oil phase, so there is more water for it to stay dissolved in?
Water, distilled & deionized ad 100
40% Locron L (50/50 water, Al2Cl(OH)5)
5% GMS + PEG-100 Stearate (I tried GMS + ceteareth-20 earlier)
2% Polyglyceryl-3 Stearate
3% Cetearyl Alcohol
4% Triethyl Citrate
2% Dimethicon 350 cSt.
1% Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil
0,9% Sepimax Zen
1% cyclo D5
2% Vari Stan PE (Garcinia Mangostana Peel Extract (and) Propanediol)
1% Phenonip (I have run out, next experiment I will use Liquid Germall Plus or Germaben II)
The viscosity is perfect. The only problem is the grittiness.
