Melting Beads in an Anhydrous Formulation
I am having a very hard time finding a raw material that I need to recreate a product that my employers are interested in duplicating. They seem to be colorless spherical beads of some material, that melt after being rubbed onto the skin after some time.
The ingredients are as follows:
Butyspermum Parkii (Shea) Butter
Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil
Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate
Ricinus Communis (castor) Seed Oil
Simmonsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil
I am quite certain the base that they use is anhydrous lanolin. I thought that the beads were most likely a mixture of shea and cocoa butter but I cannot find any supplier that offers them here in the US, and I also thought Coconut Oil beads would melt far too easily if they were even available. I then moved on to considering jojoba beads but every supplier has mentioned that they will not melt when rubbed on skin. Am I missing something very obvious? I have searched google and ULProspector for anything I could think of in terms of beads.
