Emulsion with over 50% actives
Hi,I want to make an emulsion with over 50% active extracts, botanicals and ingredients added after the emulsion have cooled to 45 degrees. How can this be done? I need to make an emulsion that can hold 50% liquid added.I tried using Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Steariate and Myristyl Myristate in oil phrase with the butters and oils, this will be about 22% of the final emulsion. And in the water phrase with simply water and Xanthan Gum with Sodium Lactate and Glycerin, this will be about 18% of the final emulsion. I then added the actives, and the emulsion turned extremely runny. And before I added the actives, I tried applying the cream on my hand, and of course I got a soaping effect, because the actives weren’t added and the amount of Cetearyl Alcohol would cause this.Love to hear some ideas.
