Thixotropic agent in water based formulas
I manufacture Liquid Sindoor (Red colored liquid used by Indian Women after marriage to be applied on forehead).
I am wondering which thixotropic agent is better
A- Xanthan gum
B - CMC (Carboxy methyl cellulose)
The formulation contains
Water - Qs
polyacrylate used as film former (neutralized by TEA) .
Anti suspending agent
Adhesive agent (PVPK 30)
Note - This is not a rinse off application, The product will stay on the skin for the whole day.
Thanks in advance !
