I am trying to formulate a hand gel with 70% w/w ethanol.
I am a cosmetic chemist working in a company that does have lots of restriction on ingredients.
I tried ultrez 20 , but the problem is that NaOH precipitated with this high alcohol content.
Unfortunately i can't use TEA or any of its derivatives.
P.S. I tried xanthan gum but didn't work as i believe it can't hold such high alcohol, same with hydroxyethyl cellulose
I don't want to use Sepimax zen as it is currently out of stock and i can't afford waiting..
Any suggestions please would be great.
