    5% seems reasonable - but it depends on what else is in the formula and product aesthetics and stuff like that.

    If you pair it with propanediol it will be less sticky.

    Typically in the 5% to 10% range.  You will have to adjust for your sensorials, but routinely make 5% glycerin moisturizing creams without any signficant stickiness.
