I am working on the finishing touches of a hand cream. There is one aspect where it falls short. 30 min after application, the product has a little drag on the back of the hand, from the crosspolymers. It goes on fine, and since I am using primarily quick hitting oils and emollients, the main presences on the skin surface, after 30 minutes, seems to be the crosspolymers. I am only using them at 1%...so reduction is not really an option.
I would prefer something powdery and silky, 30 minutes after application. Is this where the silicas would finish a product like this perfectly? I need something that remains on the surface unobtrusively and dry.
Already using behenyl alcohol, Polymethylsilsesquioxane and many other 'powdery' ingredients.
