Glyceryl stearate and polysorbate
Can you please help me, I want to make stable creams without using peg emulsifiers. I have some leftover e wax nf(cetearyl polysorbate 60) which I like it but cannot find it anymore in my country.
Right now I have glyceryl stearate,polysorbate 20, cetearyl alcohol, lecithin, sodium polyacrylate for emulsifiers.
I made a simple cream with
2 % panthenol
2% ha solution
1.5% polysorbate 20
10% almond oil,
2% gosulin silicon replacement (to reduce soaping and better glide?)
3 glyceryl stearate
3 cetearyl alcohol
0.5% vit e
It turned out nice white cream, a bit fluffy, I guess it’s from the small batch and the hand mixer. I also thinking of adding polysorbate at the end and not in the water phase to avoid this fluffy texture.
Do you find this combo steady? My supplier also carries ceteareth 25. Will it going to make any difference if I substitute polysorbate with ceteareth in the water phase?
