I've always had an issue with my clay pomade formulas during the cool down phase. It would always thicken too fast and I would end up scooping it into the jar. Now that I have introduced polysorbate 20 to my formula at 1.5%, my clay pomade doesn't thicken at the final stage of cooling. So much so that it doesn't even thicken the next day. I can litterlay pour it out. Do I need to use less polysorbate 20? Or perhaps less water?
