Home Cosmetic Science Talk Formulating W/O Cream Stability

  • W/O Cream Stability

    Posted by AndrewSeel on March 27, 2021 at 11:19 am

    I have a w/o cream 
    Shea Butter 2-5%
    Zinc Oxide 10-20%
    Lanette O 1-3%
    IPM 1-6%
    Paraffin 5-12%
    Petrolatume 1-5%
    Beeswax 0.25-2%
    for emulsification used 6% of Span 80+Span 60 and added GMS. I feel it not homogenous enough and not stable enough,

    So I added Polysorbate 60 which is o/w in very small percentage like 0.5% as a stabilizer which gave a good homogenous cream actually but not sure if the Emulsion has maintain w/o form and stability will be fine?!

    Also I added Magnesium Sulfate 0.5-1% I have tried Xanthan but has not give good result, 

    I appreciate your help in this please….
