Thanks Belassi...Does it require any additional emulsifier for stability?
Saponification values are mostly provided for NaOH and KOH. How would you calculate for CaOH?
Also, would the final formula create foam as usual saponification formulas as we…
I just never thought of Carbomer being a culprit as I have used it with different surfactant and havent felt the same.
Is there a reason why HEC would be less heavy than Carbomer? Just curious.
@David and Bob,
I am using a N Sodium Silicate Clear which I believe is a 40% Soln.
Apart from that, its just a Gel base thickenend with Veegum Ultra and Sodium Hyaluronate.
I might try Dimethicone as a non-volatile liquid..
I am just re-posting to make this thread alive!
I wanted to know if anyone has any experience working with Sodium Silicate Solution. If yes, I wanted to know if there is a specific process to keep in mind or specific ingredients to …
Thanks Bob for the clarification....From what I understand is I create a Saponification using Oleic Acid and NaOH and then add Decyl Glucoside? Kindly correct if I am understanding wrong here.
@ Nasrin, I am aware of it...what we trying to learn h…

Priya, you might need to share more information on other ingredients in the formula..for eg. what kind of Oils and what kind of thickener you are using. You can either use some ceteareth-20 or steareth-20 or make changes in oil ratio. You can even u…
Great to see this thread getting so many information shared overnight;)
In my experience...I have seen that when I dissolve PVA in water and heat upto 80C, its hard to determine when to stop mixing...Again, I am more concerned when the formula move…
Bob, for eg. If we use 15.5% ZnO in a formula using a dispersion which has a range of 40-45% Active. How would you determine a range for future multiple production batches? When there is no consistency within the active content in dispersion itself?…
In my opinion, you might not even need Xanthan or ultrez-30.
Just take water and glycerin, add EDTA.
Slowly sprinkle Pemulen-Tr-2 with mixing. Add surfactant and sunflower oil.
Then neutralize the batch with NaOH until gel formation.
Might need to b…
Actually, even in glass container, I saw a reaction Which is beyond my understanding.
A TCA solution, dispersed in water, reacted badly with polysorbate(Presolubilized with retinol +fragrance) giving it a dirty green color sediment.
