    Hello everyone, hoping you can help me with my face cream formula. I have been trying different % for the emulsifiers and im still experiencing soaping. I added LuxGlide N350 ( dimethicone alternative) and it has helped a bit. Maybe my emulsifiers don’t work together or maybe its another of my ingredients.

    Formula below:

    Water - 70.6%
    Allantoin- 0.5%
    Niacinamide - .8%
    Xanthan Gum -0.2%
    Propandiol - 4%
    Sodium Hyaluronate/1-1.5 mil daltons - 0.2%

    Olivem 1000 - 2.5%
    Cetearyl Alcohol - 1.2%
    Glyceryl Stearate- 1%
    Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides- 6%
    Rosehip Seed Oil - 3%
    Broccoli Seed Oil- 1%
    LuxGlide N350 - .5%

    Bisabolol - 0.3%
    Rose Extract - 0.6%
    Hibiscus Extract in Glycerin - 0.5%
    Gotu Kola - 0.8%
    Apple Stem Cell - 1.2%
    Argirline - 3%
    Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate - 0.3%

    Amticide VAF - 0.5%
    EUXYL -0.9%

    The emulsifiers I have on hand are
    - Olivem 1000
    - Glyceryl Stearate 
    - Montav 68mb
    -Ritamulse
    -Stearic Acid
    -Cetyl Alcohol
    - Cetearyl Alcohol

    Im not opposed to buying a different emulsifier but hoping one of these will work since it can get pricey. I’d like to add this to a pump for sanitary purposes.

    I would advise getting GMS/PEG100 blend (which is very multipurpose and robust) and adding real dimethicone. You can also try knock out experiment and remove all extracts to see if it goes better.

    @ngarayeva001Thank you for your feedback.Whats the name of the emulsifier ? I’m still new to the abbreviation . haha ! have you tried Cetearyl alcohol, ceteareth-20 blend? 

    I have removed all extracts and kept the basic formula and its the same.
