Greetings to All formulators ! I have been working on a low cost Aloevera Facial Gel in India. The selling point of this product is its crystal clear gel. However, on application the gel is a bit too watery. Please help me find a solution to this without the gel losing its clarity ! Thanks in Advance !
The formula is as follows -
D.M Water - Q.S
Propylene Glycol - under 3 %
Hydroxyethyl Urea - under 3%
Aloevera Extract 99% pure - around 2 %
Preservative - 0.5 %
NaOh 20% Sol (Sodium Hydroxide) - Q.S
ph - 6.95
I am using carbopol 980 due to its stability and its price. I cannot afford ultrez 20/21 since it is expensive.
