Figure 6. Simple w/o emulsions based on 2% waxy polymeric emulsifier and 20% oil

The results of a polymeric w/o emulsifier used at 2% with 20% emollient; here, the map is spread out across the PCA plot. Increasing oil viscosity moves the sample data points from the left to the right in the diagram, confirming that the impact of emollient choice is more important in w/o systems than in o/w systems.
