Formulating Tips
Consider the use of a co-emulsifier such as Glyceryl Stearate at 1 - 2% to further improve stability.  Xanthan Gum used at about 0.2% will also improve the stability.

Fatty alcohols such as Behenyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol or Cetearyl Alcohol can be added to the oil phase for thickening if needed.
