Optimizing the sensory properties of o/w emulsion systems is an ongoing challenge for formulators, thus tools to simplify this process are desirable. Here, the authors describe a visual tool to assist in selecting the right combination of certain crosslinked acrylic rheology modifiers and specialty emollient esters to meet target aesthetics.

The present work describes a cosmetic technology based on a newer formulating concept—cream in powder form. The final formulation can be created by two different technical processes to produce either water- or oil-based cosmetics. In each case, the proper selection of ingredients determines the stability of the finished products.
