Looking for pomade formula help!
Hello! I’m very new to this site, so I’m looking for a little bit of guidance in my new pomade business. I want to start off with the ingredients I am currently using for my first product, and the consistency I get so far. Any help would be very appreciated!
(These are all 4 ounce sample sizes)
1oz Shea Butter
1.5oz Hydrogenated Castor Oil (Varied/Gave a greasy look)
1/8 tsp Jojoba Oil
1/8 tsp Grapefruit Seed Extract
1/8 tsp Vitamin E
1/4 tsp Sweet Almond Oil
1 Tbsp Vegetable Glycerin
*Drops of fragrance
The end product is not easy to get out of the containers, but once it is worked through the hands and hair the product gives a very low shine/light hold (natural look). This is exactly what I’m looking for in this particular product, but I’m wanting to know how to make it water soluble and easier to get out of the containers. Also knowing how to control the hold for this product (making it a heavier hold), would be great information as well. I’m open to all ideas for ingredients, as most of the ingredients used currently are very rudimentary. I’ve seen most products using PEG7, Glyceryl Cocoate, Cetereth25, Polysorbate20, etc…
Thanks everyone in advance!
