Incorporating Sodium Carbomer
I was under the impression that carbomers should not be mixed under high shear, as it would break the gel network and compromise viscosity. However, I saw a video the other day of someone using high shear with sodium carbomer. Would that principal not apply to sodium carbomer? If so, in a standard body lotion formula, which phase (water or oil) and shear type would work best to incorporate the sodium carbomer? Thanks in advance.
