    Ionic charge of surfactants have an effect, means emulsion anionic or cationic surfactants are more stable than non-ionic. Does ionic charge of polymers have any effect on emulsion stability? 

    For example, is anionic polymer more stable than non-ionic in anionic or non-ionic emulsion? Or is emulsion with cationic polymer like guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride more stable than non-ionic polymer?

    @Pharma on what 😜?

    For example if i use Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine and Polyglyceryl 6 distearate as emulsifier in a lotion, which polymer would make it more stable?
    1. Guar gum (non-ionic)

    2. Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride (cationic)
