So, I formulated a cleansing balm with the following ingredients, but the wash off is not great. It leaves a film behind.
My earlier formulations were without soy wax but it would start to melt at 32 C. But wouls wash off quite nicely. Now it has a great texture and melts in my fingers but leaves a cast behind.
Also, do let me know will phenoxyethanol be stable in this formula.
Thank you all for your help!
