Emulsion Instability question
Hi everyoneI created this moisturizer 2 days ago. The cream texture seemed fine and smooth at first so I put them into jars ,closed the lid and left them at room temperature (75 F) for 2 days . After 2 days, I opened the jars and the texture seems like foam. Anybody experienced this before and know how to fix ? I was blending quite carefully but no idea why the texture changed within 2 days. I know the emulsion got problem with stablity but couldn’t figure out why. I was blending using hand blender and homogenizer for 30-40 mins. Below is my formula and pictures :Formula :Water 34.8%
Rose hydorsol 10%solagum AX 0.3%glycerin 1%Sodium gluconate 0.1%Potassium sorbate 0.2%Sodium pca 4%Olivem 1000 8%Cetyl Alcohol 3%Shea butter 10%Isopropyl Myristate 5%Squalene 4%Olive oil : 4%Sea buckthorn oil : 1%Bisabolol 1.5%Colloidal oat powder 2%Honey powder 2%Sepilift 2%
Tetrapeptide 2%Vit E 0.6%Urea 1%EO Ylang Ylang 1%Geogard ECT 1%pH adjustor 1%
I boil water+ gum+ +glycerin , stir, then add rose hydrosol, sodium,potassium to finish water phase, then boil olivem+shea butter+ cetyl alcohol, blend them with water phase above , stir and homogenize, then add isopropyl,squalene,oils,bisabolol,colloidal,honey, then blend and homogenize them again, then add sepilift,tetrapeptide,vit E, urea, EO and preservative and pH adjustor. Blend and homigenize.
2 days later ( Day 3), the emulsion becomes instable like this
