Gliding Effect of Emulsion Despite High Viscosity??
I have a problem nowadays with the rheology-afterfeel of an emulsion I have prepared. It is a very simple traditional O/W emulsion with Carbomer. After emulsify water base and oil phase at 80C, let the mixture cool down to 35-40 C and neutralize with TEA. The final product looks like quite well, rigid and viscous but when you try to pick it up, it is too slippery to handle. When you pick it up and apply to your hand it starts to glide as a bulk not flowing.
Do you have an idea?
Here is the final formulation below.
Oil Phase: Emulgade SE+Lanette D+D5+Paraffinum Liquidum
Water Phase: Aqua+Carbomer+Euxyl PE9010
Aqua 86,990 Carbomer 0,250 EMULGADE SE 4,500 LANETTE D / NAFOL 1618 H 1,000 CYCLOPENTASILOXANE 0,400 FRAGRANCE 0,300 EUXYL PE9010 0,800 TEA 0,250 PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM 5,500 ORGANIC
ALOE VERA GEL
