    Although Cetiol 5C has an excellent emollient effect, its higher viscosity (thickness) may contribute to a heavier feel at 7%. Consider reducing it to 5% or even 3% and see if that improves the texture.

    The combination of emulsifiers and thickeners in your formulation (Emulgin SG and Aristoflex AVC) may affect the texture. You can try adjusting the ratio or even reducing the total emulsifier ratio to achieve a lighter consistency.

    Since skin care formulas can be quite varied, it can be helpful to work in small batches and gradually adjust the percentages until you find the texture you desire. Additionally, looking at the specific properties of each geometry dash world component and how they interact can provide insights into achieving the desired feel. Hope this helps and good luck with your gel cream experiment!
