My deodorant stick works but it doesn’t glide!
Hi everyone!I made a deodorant stick recipe and it does not leave a greasy feeling and it keeps it’s shape nicely but when i try to apply it i really have to struggle because it does not glide easily. It feels a bit dry and not emolient.
I made before a similar recipe, only with 15% beeswax and 6% olivem and it was too crumbly. So i am thinking maybe to add cocoa butter, reduce the arrowroot powder to 10%, reduce waxes to 18% in total, remove olivem and maybe add an ester?
Please help me out.
The recipe is like this:Phase Acaprylic capric triglyceride: 27.2%Cetearyl alcohol: 10%Beeswax: 15%Candelilla wax: 10%Olivem 1000: 10%Zinc ricinoleate: 3%Phase BArrowroot powder: 13%Glycerin: 3%Powder extracts: 0,5%Phase CVit E: 0,5%Triethyl citrate: 5%Essential oils: 1,8%
