AHA acids in creams
hello again. I am having a lot of trouble formulating a cream with AHAs (~10%) in it. its a beautiful cream until i add the acids (glycolic/lactic/fruit acids) and the viscosity just goes to pretty much water.
can anyone point me in the right direction?
the emulsifying system is
Cetyl alcohol (1.5%)
carnauba wax (0.5%)
potassium cetyl phosphate (1.5%)
steric acid (0.5%)
I have also used decyl glucoside in the water phase to give it cleansing ability.
i am sure i have asked this question before at some point but i am still having trouble
