thicken out naturally without "gummy" feeling
I'm making a body scrub where I would've used a carbopol to make a gel base...but my issue is I can't use synthetic raws
I've tried different gums like xanthan at around 1.5-2% but the final product has that gummy feeling to the touch,characteristic of these gums at high %'s
I would've made a an emulsion as my base, but my scrub has to be clear/translucent with exfoliating beads.
Any suggestions as to what I can add to reduce that gummy feeling? or some other way to create this gel base?
