I make a cream with 58,5% water phrase, 22% oil phrase with emulsifier Olivem 1000 (Cetearyl Olivate (and) Sorbitan Olivate) used at 7% and OliWax LC (Cetyl Palmitate (and) Sorbitan Palmitate (and) Sorbitan Olivate) used at 2%, Myristyl Myristate used at 2%, as well as Cetearyl Alcohol used at 1%. And a C-phrase with 22% active ingredients.
When this cream is rubbed into the skin, it has this soaping effect. I tried making it three times, and I took all the ingredients up to 180F, but I still get the same problem. Why does this happen?
It doesn't really melt into the skin untill after you have REALLY rubbed the cream into the skin. It feals nice, but the whitening effect is really annoying.
