Moisturiser leaves a sticky residue.
Hi! This might be a long post. Sorry about that.
I tried to reverse engineer the moisturiser below. What was interesting about it was that it used only glysterate SE as an emulsifier which according to my supplier is a W/O with HLB of around 5.
water/aqua, eau, glyceryl stearate se, glycerin, squalane, caprylic/capric tri-glyceride, dimethicone, cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, caprylyl glycol, carbomer, chrysanthemum parthenium extract, ceramide 3, sodium hydroxide, camellia sinensis leaf extract, glycyrrhiza glabra root extract, phenoxyethanol
My formula had a few substitutions and the cream that got made was a shiny, bouncy, fluffy, melt in your skin goodness! However, when i washed my hands later, it had a weird stickiness to it. Similar to what i felt when i washed my hands after ‘trying’ Polyglyceryl 4 Oleate (low HLB liq w/o emulsifier).
So, my question is how do i get rid of that áfter feel’?
My formulation :
Glyceryl Sterate SE 5%
Xanthan Gum 0.3%
Collidal Oatmeal 1%
Licorice Ext 0.5%
Euxyl K 9010 1%
DW upto 100%
Thank you for your time.
