Hi everyone, I'm trying to formulate a body wash which will look milky. Can you advise me with below questions:?
1. I was suggested to use non-ionic emulsifier such cetearyl alcohol or cetyl alcohol and incorporate into the bodywash mixture with hot process. However it always fails, and resulting a sediment/layer. Do any of you have similar experience?
2. I will not use Glycol Stearate (pearlizer), because what I want is milky, not pearly liquid. Therefore after so many trial, I found Titanium Dioxide is good to give me this appearance. Is titanium dioxide not common to be use in a body wash? what is the impact in the long run? (Will it separate after several months?).
*Other successful trial, is by adding real milk powder, such coconut milk powder. However this as strong aroma which is not pleasant to the final product.
Thank you guys, I hope to hear your advise on using titanium dioxide in a bodywash
