    Hello great guys

    I need a surfactant which is soluble in oils in a form that could make a cold process cream just by adding cold water

    Just use Sepinov EMT 10, it’s an emulsifier and thickener. It can handle a lot of oil and can be used cold process, just make sure you emulsify it with a high sheer mixer.
